Anxiety Disorder Treatment

 in Miami

Patients with anxiety disorders, particularly panic disorder and agoraphobia, are highly motivated to recover, yet scared to death to change. The anticipatory fears of experiencing yet another panic attack, or losing control in public, or feeling embarrassed and humiliated, are enough to keep them frozen in fear, unwilling to chart unfamiliar waters.
