What We Treat
Panic Disorder & Agoraphobia
Panic Disorder is diagnosed in people who experience spontaneous seemingly out-of-the-blue panic attacks and are very preoccupied with the fear of a recurring attack. Panic attacks occur unexpectedly, sometimes even when waking up from sleep.
Agoraphobia is a fear of being overwhelmed by anxiety and not being able to escape or get help. They typically avoid places where they feel immediate escape might be difficult, such as shopping malls, public transportation, and either open places (like parking lots) or enclosed places (like theaters). Many people with agoraphobia also suffer from panic disorder.
