In brief: Sure, but...

Anxiety can cause pain in any part of the body.
Depression also can cause pain anywhere. Of course, lots of other disorders can cause pain. Therefore, one's primary care doctor and a Podiatrist, Rheumatologist, or Orthopedic doctor can evaluate to see what the cause or causes of the foot pain could be. Normal activities such as walking or running can also cause foot pain. It's a common symptom.
