Find Therapy for Anxiety in Los Angeles, CA

United States > California > Los Angeles > Anxiety
The therapists listed below are members of GoodTherapy.org and pay us a membership fee which helps support our services.
 
 

The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) contends that more than 18% of the adult American population was affected by anxiety attacks, panic attacks, or other anxiety symptoms during the previous 12 months. Of these individuals, approximately 23% (or 4% of the total adult American population) experienced severe symptoms of anxiety. Anxiety affects people of all backgrounds. According to NIMH, almost 29% of all the men and women in the United States will experience anxiety symptoms at some point during their lifetime.

Therapists in Los Angeles may be able to address certain risk factors that may increase the likelihood of a person being affected by panic attack or anxiety attack symptoms. Other risk factors may be related to an individual's genetic makeup and/or surrounding environmental conditions. According to NIMH, some common risk factors for anxiety include:

  • Shyness in childhood
  • Females are more likely than males to experience anxiety
  • Being divorced
  • Experiencing traumatic or stressful events
  • Family history of anxiety issues

Despite the high prevalence of anxiety issues such as generalized anxiety, panic attack, and social anxiety, symptoms of these conditions may be treated by qualified therapists. In Los Angeles, therapists may implement different forms of psychotherapy (for example, exposure therapy or cognitive behavioral therapy), or they may recommend the use of antianxiety medications. Some anxiety-related conditions may be best treated with a combination of psychotherapy and medication. A therapist in Los Angeles may also teach an affected person stress management techniques or recommend a support group.
