Anxiety 101

anxiety 101

We have struggled with anxiety issues since humans first arrived on earth. While we’ve learned a lot about anxiety since then, there still exists many misconceptions about anxiety, anxiety disorder, what causes it, and how it can be successfully resolved.

To dispel the many persistent misconceptions about what anxiety is and how to successfully overcome it, we developed this Anxiety 101 section.

The information in our Anxiety 101 section is based on our own personal struggles with anxiety disorder, our successes overcoming it, as well as on our therapists’ professional training and many years of experience (over 30 years) helping people overcome issues with anxiety disorder.
