What is anxiety?

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.

What are the types of anxiety disorders?

Anxiety comes in many forms, and there are many types of anxiety disorders. The most common include:

Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)

Phobias
