Tailored therapeutic solutions for adolescent distress

Anxiety is the second most common mental health disorder among American adolescents

Did you know that in the US, one in four teens suffers from an anxiety disorder? Anxiety can transform a home from a safe haven into an emotional war zone. In social situations, where teens should be building friendships and forging connections, paralyzing anxiety can leave them feeling isolated and misunderstood. That’s why confronting this problem head-on is so crucial. With proper support, adolescents can learn to effectively manage their anxiety so it doesn’t define their teenage years.

Types of adolescent anxiety

Adolescents may experience a variety of anxiety types, each presenting unique symptoms. Common forms include the following:

Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) involves persistent, excessive worry about everyday matters that is often disproportionate to the situation.

Social anxiety disorder is a fear of people that is so intense it typically leads to avoidance of all social interactions.  

Panic disorder is marked by sudden, intense episodes of fear, often accompanied by physical symptoms like rapid heartbeat and shortness of breath.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is characterized by ongoing, unwanted thoughts (obsessions) and behaviors that sufferers feel compelled to repeat (compulsions), such as excessive cleaning or checking.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) may develop after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event, affecting a teen’s ability to process and cope with the experience.
