Anxiety Q & A

What is anxiety?

Anxiety is a mental health condition that causes persistent feelings of worry or fear, even when there’s no imminent danger.

Several conditions fall under the anxiety umbrella, including:

Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)

GAD causes excessive and persistent worry about everyday things like health, finances, career, and family, lasting for six months or longer.

Panic disorder

A panic disorder causes sudden episodes of intense fear, even when there’s no threat to your physical safety. Panic attacks can be so severe that you feel anxious about having another one.


A phobia describes an intense fear of specific people, places, or things, such as a fear of snakes or flying on an airplane.

Phoenix Pointe Psychiatry provides compassionate care for adults and children with an anxiety disorder. The providers focus on holistic therapies to improve your quality of life and prevent the onset of anxiety and panic attacks.

When should I seek medical attention for anxiety?

Some amount of anxiety is the body’s natural reaction to stressful situations. However, if you or your child have ongoing anxiety symptoms, schedule a psychiatric evaluation at Phoenix Pointe Psychiatry.

Anxiety symptoms in adults and children can include intrusive thoughts, irrational fears, and excessive worry. Anxiety can also cause physical symptoms that can be severe enough to feel like a heart attack. Physical symptoms might involve:

  • Sweating
  • Trembling
  • Dizziness
  • Chest pressure
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Shortness of breath

The providers review your or your child’s symptoms, personal and family medical histories, and the impact anxiety has on your life. They may also request blood tests or other diagnostics to rule out medical conditions that cause similar symptoms.

How is anxiety treated?

Phoenix Pointe Psychiatry provides patient-centered treatment plans to help you feel better physically, mentally, and emotionally.

The mental health specialists prioritize holistic treatments that support your overall health and wellness. They may recommend:

  • Breathwork
  • Meditation
  • Diet changes
  • Stress reduction techniques

The providers can also prescribe anti-anxiety medications that change the chemicals in your brain to ease intrusive thoughts and the physical symptoms of anxiety. They offer medication management services to ensure the medications you take are working well.

Counseling sessions are available in-office. You can also get a referral to an experienced therapist for additional treatment.
