Anxiety Treatment
Share |

Both medicines and therapy can successfully treat anxiety.

If you recognize yourself having some or all of the symptoms of anxiety, tell your doctor. S/he may prescribe anti-anxiety medicines.

Licensed therapists, psychologists, marriage and family therapists, pastoral counselors, clinical social workers, and, in some cases, psychiatrists all offer effective short-term psychotherapy to help you understand anxiety and recover from it. (Sometimes longer-term therapy is needed if the anxiety is rooted in trauma or past life events.)


These therapists offer different types of therapy. Be sure to ask them if they are licensed, about their training, experience treating anxiety, and what approach they plan to use with you. Shop around if you need to until you find a therapist you are comfortable with; if finances are a concern, ask they have a sliding fee scale.
