Anxiety Q&A

What is anxiety?

Anxiety is a common condition that, when left untreated, can affect your mental health. It often causes fear, worry, and even panic attacks in situations that don’t bother many other people. If anxiety diminishes your quality of life, see Kimberly for an evaluation.

She understands that stressors related to your profession, family dynamics, trauma history, relationships, personal health, finances, and societal issues might heighten anxious feelings. This can feel overwhelming and debilitating, making it difficult for you to function at your best.

What do anxiety disorders look like?

Anxiety cause the following symptoms: 

  • Ongoing or extreme fear
  • Constant worry
  • Hyperventilation
  • Avoiding anxiety triggers
  • Sweating
  • Trembling
  • Fatigue
  • Increased heartbeat
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Problems concentrating
  • Anxiousness in social situations
  • Phobias

You might also experience depression, social isolation, or substance use disorder. Your symptoms can be mild and not bother you much or extreme and crippling without the proper treatment.

What causes anxiety?

The exact cause of anxiety isn’t always known. But risk factors include a family history of anxiety, past traumatic experiences, medical conditions, stress, and having specific personality traits. Additional risk factors are depression and misusing drugs or alcohol. 

Adopting healthy habits, like staying active and adopting stress-reduction strategies, could diminish anxiety symptoms. But you can’t always prevent anxiety disorders.

How does my provider diagnose anxiety?

After completing a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation, Kimberly diagnoses anxiety and other mental health conditions. She asks questions about your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, as well as your personal and family medical histories, lifestyle, medication, and symptoms. She then tailors your mental health treatment plan.

How is anxiety treated?

Kimberly takes a Christian approach to care. She offers medication management, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), and other forms of psychotherapy (talk therapy). Her comprehensive and therapeutic treatment approach focuses on restoring a peaceful existence. 

Lifestyle changes shown to reduce anxiety symptoms and help you thrive include eating nutritious foods, clearing up an overly busy schedule, exercising regularly, and reducing stressors. 

Kimberly tailors each treatment plan to your preferences, lifestyle, and needs. She follows up with you to continue your treatment plan and ensures it works effectively.

PSALM 23: 1-6

1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
