Specializes in Clinical Psychology

Good treatment: Anxiety disorders tend to respond well to treatment with medications, psychotherapy, or a combination of both. It's important to note that anxiety often leads people to avoid feared social situations. Avoidance often provides immediate relief but worsens anxiety over time. Start by talking to your physician, psychiatrist, or psychologist. Keep working at it to reduce anxiety.
