Anxiety Clinic

PSPC Anxiety Disorders Clinic treats a range of anxiety disorders including panic disorders, phobias, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and general anxiety disorder (GAD). Our faculty and clinicians provide outpatient assessments and treatment for persons with a variety of anxiety disorders using comprehensive psychiatric evaluations, second opinions, and consultations, as well as ongoing treatment with psychotherapy and medications.

What is Anxiety?

People with anxiety disorders frequently have intense, excessive and persistent worry and fear about everyday situations. Often, anxiety disorders involve repeated episodes of sudden feelings of intense anxiety and fear or terror that reach a peak within minutes (panic attacks).

These feelings of anxiety and panic interfere with daily activities, are difficult to control, are out of proportion to the actual danger and can last a long time. Symptoms may start during childhood or the teen years and continue into adulthood.

Treatment

The two main treatments for anxiety disorders are psychotherapy and medications. You may benefit most from a combination of the two. It may take some trial and error to discover which treatments work best for you
