Anxiety is a strong emotion that can influence the body in a number of ways. Anxiety can present emotionally through worried thoughts and feelings of tension or through physical changes, such as gastrointestinal issues or high blood pressure. Everyone has experienced anxiety at some point in their life, but what is the difference between feeling anxious and having an anxiety disorder? The psychiatrists at Serenity Mental Health Centers are committed to helping patients figure out if they are experiencing feelings of anxiety or if they have an anxiety-related disorder. We will work one-on-one with each of our patients to determine if they are experiencing prolonged anxiousness, diagnose what type of anxiety disorder they may have, and the best way to treat the anxiety. We understand how scary it can be to try and navigate this condition, but we are here to help. The professionals at Serenity can provide you with the support and care needed to live life freely.

Every individual that walks through our door is different. We recognize that our patients may experience different forms of anxiety, such as generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), social anxiety disorder, and panic disorder. There is not a one-size-fits-all solution to treating anxiety. Our team has created a safe and comfortable environment where each patient can ask questions, share concerns, and discuss available treatment options. We want to find a treatment that works for each patient without compromising any of their standards. To do that, we offer several treatment options for anxiety, including transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and ketamine IV therapy. Our team is here to support each patient through their journey to improved mental wellness.

Our team takes a patient-first approach to treatment. We are here to support you as you take back your life and manage your anxiety disorder in a way that fits your lifestyle. Serenity Mental Health Centers is a safe space to heal. If you have been experiencing symptoms of anxiety, please do not hesitate to reach out to our professionals.

I was/am very happy with Serenity. I just went thru TMS. My depression was mostly eliminated. However, my anxiety is still there, though to a lesser degree.

I went here initially to treat my adhd and then I was introduced to TMS and Ketamine therapies so I went back to treat my depression and anxiety. This has been such a great facility to go to for all of the above. The staff is so kind, professional, and goes above and beyond for their patients. These folks truly want their patients to succeed and I can see that. I highly recommend checking this place out. To the staff, thank you all for being the best at what you do! You’ve given me a stellar opportunity and the tools to continue my journey.

Are generalized anxiety disorder and general anxiety the same thing?

Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) and general anxiety are not the same thing. While general anxiety is a reaction most people will have during stressful or uncertain situations, generalized anxiety disorder is characterized by much more severe worry regarding everyday things. Those who have GAD may worry for no apparent reason and don't know how to stop this cycle.

What can I do if my partner has anxiety?

If your partner has anxiety, the first thing to remember is that anxiety is not something someone can just snap out of. However, armored with the right support, help, and information, your partner may be able to overcome these tendencies. If your partner is suffering with anxiety, a few things you can do include:

  • Reassure them that they will be okay
  • Stay calm and patient
  • Don't make them feel guilty
  • Ask them how you can help them in the moment
Does anxiety run in families?

If you have a family member with generalized anxiety disorder, you may be more likely to develop anxiety yourself. Research supports that genes may play a role; however, it's unclear how the conditions are passed from family member to family member.
