Therapy for Anxiety in New York

Anxiety doesn’t have to hold you back from what is most meaningful to you.

If you’re a New Yorker suffering from anxiety, you probably don’t need to search, “What is Anxiety?” on Google. From living with soaring rent prices, to bustling streets and managing high-pressure job stress, New Yorkers know anxiety well.

Anxiety has many forms and many related disorders, like Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Panic Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).  It may feel like intense worry, racing thoughts, panic, or dread.

You know it’s much more than day-to-day stress.

Sometimes you may sweat and feel tingling in your body. You may have racing thoughts and really troubling thoughts and worries that won’t seem to go away, no matter what you try.

Anxiety isn’t just nervousness. It can look like:

  • Intense worry or obsessions
