Anxiety Q & A

What is anxiety?

Anxiety is a disorder that causes persistent worry and fear disproportionate to your circumstances. You may also experience physical symptoms during an anxiety attack.

There are several types of anxiety disorders that can affect the quality of life of adults and adolescents, including generalized anxiety disorder (GAD).

Other anxiety conditions include:

  • Social anxiety
  • Separation anxiety
  • Panic disorder
  • Phobias

The Woodlands Psychiatry and Counseling offers comprehensive care for anxiety disorders, including an inpatient program for those needing immediate medical assistance. Dr. Bishai customizes an ongoing wellness plan after discharge to help you control your anxiety symptoms.

When should I seek medical attention for anxiety?

Some amount of anxiety is a natural response to stressors in your life. When you have persistent anxiety symptoms that interfere with your success at work, school, or in relationships, schedule a consultation at The Woodlands Psychiatry and Counseling.

Anxiety symptoms can include:

  • Trembling
  • Sweating
  • Intrusive thoughts
  • Shortness of breath
  • Patterns of negative thoughts
  • Feeling out of control
  • Difficulties concentrating
  • Heart palpitations or racing heart
  • Avoidance of people, places, or events

If you’re thinking about harming yourself or others or experience suicidal thoughts, call 911 immediately or visit the nearest emergency room.

Dr. Bishai can meet with you in the office or through the online telepsychiatry platform to evaluate your emotional and mental health. He determines if you need inpatient or outpatient care to ease your anxiety symptoms and offers a range of treatments to support your overall wellness.

How is anxiety treated?

Dr. Bishai takes a whole-person approach when designing your anxiety treatment plan. He focuses on addressing the factors contributing to your anxiety rather than just treating your symptoms.

Your anxiety management plan may include a combination of psychological counseling and medications. Counseling helps you recognize negative thoughts and behaviors that trigger anxious feelings and gives you tools to improve your emotional, mental, and physical health.

For severe anxiety, Dr. Bishai might recommend the inpatient program that offers care in a safe and compassionate environment. He also provides outpatient care and medication management to supervise your use of anti-anxiety medications.
