Anxiety symptoms and disoders are common in medical and mental health settings. The disorder typically persists for years and can contribute to significant psychological distress which interferes with one’s quality of life. Individuals suffering from an anxiety disorder have developed a maladaptive way of thinking about situations that causes them to excessively worry about what may happen, feel helpless and lack a sense of personal control, and interpret life events from a lens of intense fear or danger. The prognosis for anxiety disoders is good with a combination of pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy. Anthony uses cognitive behaviroal therapy and psychodynamic psychotherapy to yield positive treatment outcomes for those suffering from these disorders.
