Anxiety is an emotional response to situations with unknown outcomes, making you feel worried, nervous, uneasy, or fearful. It’s a normal stress reaction and helps your body prepare for uncertainty.
However, if you feel anxious all the time about everyday things or your fear and worry are overwhelming and all-consuming, you may have an anxiety disorder.
The Potter’s Behavioral Medicine Clinic is a psychiatry practice that specializes in mental health, learning disabilities, and trauma. The team takes an individualized approach using a wide range of modalities that addresses the root cause of your anxiety, including Christian-based therapies.
Anxiety comes in many forms, and there are many types of anxiety disorders. The most common include:
GAD is a type of anxiety disorder that causes ongoing feelings of fear and worry about everyday things. The overwhelming anxiety makes it hard to concentrate and go about your normal routine.
Social anxiety disorder causes intense fear and anxiety in social situations, such as eating in public, interacting with classmates or co-workers, and public speaking.
Phobias are excessive fears over objects or situations, like the fear of needles or flying.
Panic disorder is a type of anxiety disorder in which you have frequent, unexpected panic attacks.

You can expect a thorough, patient-centered evaluation when you visit The Potter’s Behavioral Medicine Clinic for help with anxiety.
Your provider asks detailed questions about your symptoms, when they started, and how they affect your daily routine. They also ask about your personal history, medical history, and family history.
Additionally, the team may administer psychological tests to better understand how you think and feel and find the root cause of your anxiety.
