Many therapists, counselors, and other mental health professionals in Oakland treat anxiety and its effects. Whether you already have an anxiety-related diagnosis or simply want to stop worrying or feeling anxious, help is available.
If you are experiencing anxiety, you are not alone. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults each year. There are many types of anxiety-related conditions, including generalized anxiety disorder, separation anxiety, phobias, panic disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), body dysmorphia, hoarding, excoriation (skin picking), and trichotillomania (hair pulling). Risk factors for anxiety may include genetics, brain chemistry, personality, and life events. About half of people diagnosed with an anxiety disorder are also diagnosed with depression.
All forms of anxiety can be managed and treated. Sadly, nearly two-thirds of people with anxiety never receive treatment. You don’t have to be one of them. You can take your life back. Therapy, medication, or a combination of the two can be especially effective in managing anxiety. A licensed therapist in Oakland can help you decide on the best course of treatment for your specific symptoms.
Left untreated, anxiety disorders can interfere with all aspects of life, from relationships to the workplace. If you are having symptoms of anxiety, contact a therapist in our directory. Any therapist you choose can help you figure out what’s causing your anxiety and how to overcome it, so you can live life on your terms.
