Anxiety is your body’s response to stress, fear, or other unfamiliar situations. Common examples of typical anxiety you may feel include worrying about a presentation at work or an exam at school. Sometimes, normal anxiety-like this makes you more alert and productive.

But if someone is suffering from an anxiety disorder, the anxiety you feel in certain situations can be damaging, crippling, and affect your ability to function normally. Anxiety can affect your sleep, making it challenging to keep up with your social life, make a conversation, or even take a walk outside.

There are various specific anxiety disorders that AKA-CHI team of professionally trained & certified healthcare treats, including:

Generalized anxiety (GAD) people with GAD are living with constant fear and stress that affects their daily life. Psychiatrists call this “free-floating anxiety,” which means the anxiety often is not triggered by anything in particular.

Panic disorders whereas are characterized by constant worry and fear of the next panic attack. Panic attacks are short bursts of irrational fear coupled with physical symptoms. They can occur without impending threats.

People who suffer from Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) may experience bad memories and relive some physical symptoms after witnessing a traumatic event or serious injury.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)

OCD complicates daily life and prevents you from living a healthy life. At AKA-CHI, our highly-trained, professional team of therapists is ready to help you understand this complicated disorder and provide effective treatment to different types of OCD and alleviate your symptoms.

Although every anxiety is different, there are several potential causes of anxiety disorders. First, start with telling yourself that your anxiety disorder is out of your control. The following contributors can put you at risk for an anxiety disorder:

  • Genetics
  • Chemical imbalances (brain chemistry)
  • Substance abuse
  • Prolonged stress
  • Past trauma
  • Side effects from medications

Women are likely to develop an anxiety disorder twice than men. Moreover, LQBTQ and Minorities are also experienced anxiety disorders higher than others.

At AKA-CHI, our trained therapists treat mild to moderate anxiety with a variety of non-drug therapy modalities, including:

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Mindfulness (especially for people living with PTSD)
  • Psychodynamic therapy

These innovative modalities provide helpful stress management techniques to pinpoint causes and alleviate overall anxiety. In more severe cases, anxiety medication may be prescribed in addition to one or more of the aforementioned therapeutic methods.

High-functioning anxiety is not a diagnosis; therefore, it is difficult to find much information or research on it. Instead, high-functioning anxiety typically refers to people experiencing anxiety while still managing daily life quite well. Generally, a person with high-functioning anxiety may seem stable and well-accomplished on the outside yet experience worry, stress or have obsessive thoughts on the inside.

Social anxiety disorder is a mental health condition. It is a severe, persistent fear of being judged or watched by others. This fear can affect your everyday life, from work to school and other activities. The person can find it difficult to make and keep friends. But the disorder doesn’t have to stop you from reaching your potential. Get a social anxiety test and treatment from AKA-CHI, and it will help you overcome your symptoms.

Telemedicine depends upon the condition, and it might not be right for everyone and the situation. We recommend that the patient pay a visit for initial evaluations and consultations at AKA- CHI. After that point onwards, your provider will guide you about the treatment plan, which might include remote appointments or follow-ups, depending on the specifics of your lifestyle, preferences, and, most importantly, your mental health issue.
