While anxiety is a normal part of life, it can become so intense and disruptive that it requires mental health treatment. Anxiety disorders are common in both children and adults and can be properly diagnosed by one of our clinicians. CCD also regularly conducts therapy groups centered on addressing anxiety and related disorders.
Signs of Anxiety:
- Anxiety/panic attacks
- Fear of separation
- For children, refusal to go to school
- Anxiety following traumatic events
- Nighttime fears, including an unwillingness to sleep alone
- Fear and/or avoidance of specific situations
- Social anxiety including avoiding groups, participating in class
- Performance anxiety
- Repetitive, compulsive, and ritualized behaviors
- Excessive worrying
