Adolescent Anxiety

captureAnxiety is a normal and important human experience that is necessary for motivation and even our survival as a species. Anxiety, however, can become a frustrating and debilitating condition that can manifest as intense irrational fear, hypervigilance, panic, obsessive behaviors, and poor self esteem. With rates around 20%, Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health problem in children and adolescents. Ranging from Generalized Anxiety to Social Anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder to Phobias, Anxiety disorders present a significant challenge to teens who experience them.
