Stress and Anxiety Disorders
Everyone experiences anxiety at some point in their lives. It’s normal to feel anxious in a stressful situation, such as when we’re facing an important deadline or coping with a family crisis. These feelings are usually temporary and go away when circumstances improve. For millions of people, however, anxiety lingers or even worsens to the point where it interferes with their relationships, work, school and more.
Experiencing persistent or overwhelming anxiety, particularly in the absence of a temporary source of stress, may indicate an anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders are very common, with an estimated 40 million American adults suffering from them, but only about a third seek treatment. There’s good news, however — these disorders are highly treatable. We offer stress and anxiety disorder treatment in Delray Beach, FL and also across the United States via teletherapy.
Factors that may play a role in anxiety disorders.
Research into anxiety disorders is ongoing and has pointed to a number of factors that may indicate an increased risk for some people. These include but are not limited to factors related to genetics, physical health conditions, brain chemistry, some medications, and life events. More than one risk factor may be present, such as a family history of anxiety disorders, childhood shyness, being widowed or divorced, or being female.
