Worry is a normal part of human existence. The nightly news gives us plenty to worry about on a daily basis. Our children, aging parents, our health, our jobs, financial concerns, the safety of ourselves and our loved ones, war, political concerns; the list could go on indefinitely of things that are worth our worry. However, sometimes this worry becomes excessive and uncontrollable—better known as anxiety. It can take over our lives and make daily functioning difficult. When this happens, we can benefit from the help of trusted professionals to work through these anxiety issues and regain control of our emotions and feelings.

Anxiety Disorders and Issues
There are many anxiety disorders, all of which can vary on an individual basis. For example, there are many different potential causes of anxiety. Further, they can manifest as panic attacks, obsessive compulsive tendencies, or the inability to complete daily tasks. These disorders can develop at any point in life, which means that all ages can experience anxiety issues.
The list of anxiety disorders includes:
- School phobia (particularly in children)
- Generalized anxiety disorder
- Social anxiety
- Panic disorder
- Agoraphobia (fear of specific places or situations)
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- Separation Anxiety
Again, these disorders vary in severity and frequency of symptoms. Generalized anxiety, as well as full panic attacks, can make healthy living very difficult. You may have been dealing with these anxiety issues for many years, or they may have come on suddenly. Know that you do not have to deal with these issues alone. Thriveworks anxiety therapists in Woodbridge, VA are here to help.
