When should I get help for anxiety?

You should get help for your anxiety when your feelings of fear, dread, or worry interfere with how you live your life. Anxiety is a normal part of life and how your body responds to stressful situations.

Kingwood Psychiatry provides psychiatric services for children, teenagers, and adults.

What are the symptoms of anxiety?

  • Difficulty sleeping or sleeping too much
  • Poor appetite or overeating

What are the types of anxiety?

Health professionals classify anxiety into types based on triggers and symptoms. Among the types of anxiety Kingwood Psychiatry treats are:

Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)

GAD causes excessive worry about everyday things, like work or school, even when they don’t cause problems. The overwhelming and all-consuming anxiety makes it hard to go about your daily routine. It can cause headaches or stomach aches.

Social anxiety disorder

Social anxiety disorder causes constant dread and fear of social situations. This fear can make it hard for you to go to school, meet new people, and participate in public events.


Phobias cause excessive fear of particular objects (spiders, cats) or situations (heights, enclosed spaces).

Panic disorder

People with panic disorder have frequent, unexpected panic attacks (the most extreme form of anxiety).
