Treatment for anxiety disorders

Treatment for anxiety disorders is planned on a case-by-case basis following a careful evaluation of each client. Anxiety treatment often includes medication and psychotherapy (counseling). Our counseling includes individual therapy, group therapy with other individuals in our mood disorders track, and family therapy.

The impact of anxiety and other mental illnesses rarely occurs for only the person suffering with the disorder – it typically affects the family system and relationships within the family as well.


Our family therapy helps family members and loved ones understand the root of the anxiety disorder, the symptoms of an anxiety disorder and how they can improve family communication and strengthen their bonds during recovery.
