Anxiety Therapy West Palm Beach
Ellen B. Flaum, LCSW – (561) 968-1505
Did 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.
- Anxious feelings
While you are unlikely to experience all of these symptoms, even one form can make life challenging.
Some of the physical symptoms which accompany these issues may include:
- Heart palpitations
- Chest pain
- Shortness of breath
- Stomach ache
- Generalized anxiety disorder
- Panic disorder and phobias
- Social anxiety disorder
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Anxiety and depression can be experienced at the same time.
If you are dealing with any of these issues, please reach out. I would be happy to provide more information about my therapy services and to make an appointment to get started.
