Types of Anxiety: Which Anxiety Disorder Do I Have?
There are actually more than half a dozen anxiety disorders and many people have more than one of them. The good news is it can be comforting to finally understand exactly what you’re dealing with. The most common anxiety disorders are:
- PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder)
- GAD (generalized anxiety disorder)
- Social anxiety disorder
- Panic disorders
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder
The right way to handle your anxiety will depend on your situation and your type of disorder. Some clients do have success with medications but remember that they simply treat the symptoms and not the anxiety itself. For many people, a specific event has traumatized them and caused their brain to unnecessarily be in “fight or flight” mode. In this situation, the brain can begin to interpret almost anything as a danger—even when it’s not.

As you can see from our list above, there are different types of anxiety and there are numerous solutions for each. When you work with Thriveworks Salem Counseling, you can count on us to help you find the unique solutions that will prove most helpful for you. Some examples of effective treatment include:
