Anxiety disorders may result from childhood trauma, learning disabilities, abuse, stress or lack of self-esteem. Understanding the source of anxiety attacks is always helpful and may be instructive, but anxiety counseling is primarily about assisting you in achieving a centered, functioning life. Our anxiety counseling sessions will not only focus on your anxiety disorder, but will also help you explore your family of origin, your interpersonal relationships and other triggers of anxiety attacks.
