Anxiety Therapy West Palm Beach

Ellen B. Flaum, LCSW – (561) 968-1505

anxiety therapy west palm beach, flDid you know? According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, anxiety disorders affect some 40 million adults in the United States age 18 and older (18% of U.S. population). However, only one-third of people suffering from these disorders get the help they need.

Some forms affect women more than men. Women are twice as likely to be affected  by Generalized Anxiety Disorder than men. Women are twice as likely to be affected by panic disorder than men. Likewise, women are more susceptible to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and specific phobias.

No matter who you are, help is available. I am highly experienced in providing  therapy and counseling for individuals who are experiencing these issues.
