Do I need help with my anxiety?

Anxiety is how your body lets you know that you are in a situation that is stressful and challenging. Everyone experiences some level of anxiety from time to time. It’s when the anxiety stays with you and starts to impact your daily life that you should seek the help of a professional therapist. Anxiety disorders often go hand-in-hand with depression.

What Causes Anxiety?

Shyness or feeling distressed or nervous in new situations in childhood

Exposure to stressful and negative life or environmental events

A history of anxiety or other mental disorders in biological relatives

Physical illnesses, such as thyroid problems, as well as heart arrhythmia, can produce symptoms of anxiety as well.
