Do you worry too much? Are your worries getting in the way of enjoying life or doing daily activities? Does your anxiety cause headaches, stomach problems, or muscle tension?
Perhaps you’ve noticed that you overthink things, or that you tend to expect the worst-case scenarios. Or perhaps you struggle with perfectionism, and others have commented that you’re too hard on yourself. Sometimes, you may feel worried and can’t even figure out why, or your worries are making it difficult for you to sleep at night.
If any of this sounds familiar, you may be suffering from an anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders are very common and affect over 40 million Americans every year. There are various types of anxiety disorders, including obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), social phobia (also sometimes called social anxiety), and generalized anxiety disorder.
Extensive, national research on anxiety disorders has indicated that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a leading treatment for children, adolescents, and adults. At the Center for Mental Wellness in San Diego, we have almost 20 years of experience providing CBT and other behavioral therapies for people struggling with a variety of anxiety disorders. We combine compassion with science to help people overcome their worries, experience and enjoy new situations, and live life with more ease and happiness.
