Adult Stress and Anxiety Disorders are the most common mental health issue in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in the United States age 18 and older.
Only 1/3 of adults who suffer with anxiety ever receive treatment.
Adolescent Stress and Anxiety Disorders affect 80 percent of our youth and 60 percent of them with diagnosable stress, anxiety and depression are not getting treatment. This according to the 2015 Child Mind Institute Children’s Mental Health Report.
The good news is that they are highly treatable. Gold standards of practice can help (including CBT and talk therapy approaches).
Without treatment, the other 2/3 of adults and children will continue to suffer silently. That’s a lot of stressed and anxious people. You don’t have to live in a perpetual state of stress. No one should have to live like this.
We all create have comfort zone limits. When anxiety begins to take control life is tough including work, social, school and family. The intensity of all this stress leads to negative thinking and the cycle of anxiety begins to repeat itself.

Obsessions: Thoughts, ideas and beliefs that simply won’t go away. These obsessions are so severe they can disable a person.
Compulsions: A ritualized action that helps to alleviate a persons obsessive thinking. In OCD the compulsion is often directly related with an excessive thought. For example, a person who constantly cleans may fear that life will not be in order.
Obsessions without compulsions: There is no compulsion with the obsession but you may constantly fear about a person or situation that you fear will go badly or not be in control. You may have been told you have anxiety but it just feels more intense than what people believe it to be.
