Anxiety Disorders are often characterized by excessive fear and worry which often result in some form of physical distress (e.g., muscle tension, increased heart-rate/respiration, chest or gastrointestinal pain/discomfort) and behavioral avoidance. Anxiety Disorders lead to significant impairment in a person’s social, occupational, and daily functioning. Anxiety Disorders diagnosed include Separation Anxiety Disorder, Selective Mutism, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder, Agoraphobia, and Specific phobias. Illness Anxiety Disorder (formerly Hypochondriasis) is also treated at AEI.
