Anxiety Q&A

What is an anxiety disorder?

Anxiety disorders are common conditions that affect nearly 20% of adults in the United States. They’re characterized by feeling anxious, nervous, worried, or fearful in circumstances that don’t affect many others. 

If anxiety diminishes your quality of life, see the experts at Body & Mind Consulting for an evaluation and treatment suggestions.

What are the different types of anxiety disorders?

Examples of anxiety disorders include:

Generalized anxiety disorder

This disorder consists of persistent anxiety, worry, and fear about ordinary events. 


Agoraphobia causes fear and avoidance of situations that make you feel trapped or panicked.

Panic disorder

Panic disorder causes panic attacks, or repeated episodes of intense terror and shortness of breath, chest pain, sweating, or a pounding heart rate.


Phobias are the fear of specific objects or situations, such as large crowds, enclosed spaces, spiders, or heights. They can provoke panic attacks in some people. 

Social anxiety disorder

Social anxiety disorder causes anxiousness or nervousness in social situations. 

Substance-induced anxiety disorder

Substance-induced anxiety disorder develops because of misusing drugs or other harmful substances — or withdrawal from drugs.

Which symptoms can anxiety disorders cause?

An anxiety disorder can cause the following symptoms:

  • Fear
  • Worry
  • Sweating
  • Trembling
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Panic
  • Avoiding things that trigger anxiety

Many people with anxiety also have depression or other mental health disorders. Things that may increase the risk of anxiety include ongoing stress, a family history of anxiety, certain personality traits, substance misuse, or physical health issues.

How is an anxiety disorder treated?

Treating an anxiety disorder often consists of stress management, medications, psychotherapy, healthy lifestyle changes, or combinations of treatments. The Body & Mind Consulting team tailors your treatment to maximize the outcome. The practice also provides:

Brain mapping

Brain mapping measures brain activity and identifies areas of your brain responsible for your symptoms. 

Brainwave synchronization 

Brainwave synchronization (Sonal Braincare™) uses neurofeedback to retrain your brain to complete specific functions more efficiently.

Emotional freedom technique (EFT) 

EFT helps you heal from traumatic experiences by tapping on acupressure points (without needles) to release emotional energy.


Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), exposure therapy, eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), and other therapies help you combat crippling symptoms and live your best life.
