Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)

Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is marked by chronic, excessive worrying along with physical symptoms such as muscle tension and restlessness, often occurring without any obvious external stressors. Anxiety therapy for GAD focuses on managing these pervasive symptoms of anxiety.

Panic Disorder

Panic disorder involves acute, intense episodes of panic that are sudden and brief. Common panic disorder symptoms include shortness of breath, heart palpitations, and an intense fear of losing control. Panic disorder treatment often involves both medication and cognitive-behavioral techniques.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is characterized by unwanted repetitive thoughts and compulsive actions such as hand washing or checking. Treatments for OCD typically include a combination of obsessive compulsive disorder treatment methods like medication and therapy, aimed at reducing the compulsions and managing the stress they cause.
