Anxiety and Panic Disorders: Modern approaches to anxiety include a variety of techniques that clients can do themselves. At CriticalPath Counseling we help clients identify their unique kind of anxiety and educate them so they can change their relationship with anxious symptoms and conquer the avoidance which is the hallmark of anxiety disorders.
Every year enormous amounts of research dollars go toward researching and developing effective, short term treatment for anxiety disorders, making it one of the most extensively researched mental health problems in the world. Stanford University is at the forefront of this research and has pioneered the use of mindfulness based and compassion based techniques for the treatment of anxiety.
There are also numerous “gold standard” treatments for anxiety including cognitive behavioral approaches to social anxiety as well as rumination focused CBT and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) for OCD and Panic Disorders.
