Anxiety is the fear, worry, or dread you feel during stressful situations. Anxiety is normal and your body’s way of coping with stress — and once the stress is gone, your anxiety should ease.
If you continue to have feelings of worry or dread that get worse over time, or you seem to have no control over your anxiety, you could have an anxiety disorder.
Anxiety disorders are common mental health conditions with symptoms that interfere with your work and relationships.
Andrea specializes in treating anxiety and anxiety disorders in her Colorado psychiatry and behavioral health telemedicine practice, providing the guidance and support you need.
The many types of anxiety disorders have different triggers and symptoms. They include:
Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)- GAD is a chronic form of anxiety that causes persistent worry and fear about everyday things (health, finances) that seep into every aspect of your life. This makes it hard to go to work or school or spend time with friends and family.
Panic disorder- Panic disorder is when you have frequent, unexpected panic attacks. A panic attack causes an intense feeling of fear and doom, along with physical symptoms like chest pain, heart palpitations, and sweating.
Social anxiety disorder- Social anxiety disorder is an overwhelming fear and dread of social situations. The fear is so intense it makes it hard to go to work or take care of everyday things.
Phobias- Phobias are intense aversions to objects or situations. People with phobias do everything they can to avoid the thing or situation that triggers their anxiety.
At your first anxiety appointment with Andrea Skrocki, she completes a psychiatric diagnostic evaluation. She reviews your medical and mental health histories and uses screening tools to better understand how you think and feel.
Andrea uses the information she gathers during this 50–60+ minute evaluation to develop a diagnostic impression and personalized treatment plan for you.
Andrea takes a collaborative and holistic approach to care. She talks to you about your concerns and treatment choices, and you develop an action plan together. Anxiety treatment can include medication management, psychotherapy, or both.
Andrea recommends her patients see their primary care provider for wellness exams and lab work when participating in medication management for their anxiety.
