There has been an increase in anxiety disorders among adolescents in recent years. The increase in pressure on this age group is often related to use of social media. Social isolation and on-line bullying often contribute to the emotional challenges of adolescents and young adults. Early intervention is very important when friends and family notice changes in behavior.
Many adults who have been diagnosed with anxiety and/or depression have tried more than one type of treatment which has not succeeded in an adequate resolution of their symptoms. I have successfully treated many of these persons and coordinated care with their medical team as needed.
