Anxiety Treatment in Wellesley, MA
Anxiety disorders are the most common of mental disorders and affect nearly 30% of adults at some point in their lives. Treatment helps most people lead normal productive lives.
It is entirely normal for any person to experience some anxiety every once in a while. This response is very typical if we are in an uncomfortable situation, or if we are anticipating a stressful event that may have us feeling nervous and worrisome. However, individuals with clinical anxiety do not experience these occasional waves of anxiety, but rather, they are dealing with them constantly and at a much higher intensity than most.

Classification of an Anxiety Disorder
Not all anxiety disorders will share the same symptoms. While excessive worry and fear are general hallmarks of an anxiety issue, the smaller idiosyncrasies of your abnormal behaviors will determine what specific type of mental health disorder you are dealing with. Some common anxiety disorders include:
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
It is also possible for you to have generalized anxiety. In this case, there is no one particular source of your anxiety. Instead, you feel a broad sense of worry over things in your everyday life such as your academics, family life, and often about future plans or aspirations.
