Anxiety Disorder Treatment for Children, Adolescents and Teens

Some children and adolescents experience anxiety disorders that can be disruptive to their daily activities and to their families.  I treat children and adolescents with anxiety.  Diagnosing anxiety disorders in children can difficult because they are going through so many changes and all children and adolescents experience anxiety to some degree.

Parents and other loved ones come to me when they notice unusually intense and persistent feelings of anxiety in their child or adolescent.  Parents may also notice a child or adolescent who is affected by panic attacks that are intense or compulsive behaviors.

There are a number of new medicines and other treatments available to help children and adolescents suffering from anxiety.  I have experience with a large number of different treatment approaches.  If you feel your child or adolescent may be suffering from an anxiety disorder, please call me to set up an appointment.
