Hello How May I Help You?

Can a Psychiatrist Help with Anxiety?

Psychiatrists are well-equipped to diagnose and treat anxiety. Your psychiatrist will likely provide you with medications and regular psychotherapy sessions. Your anxiety medication has a higher chance of working when paired with coping strategies learned in therapy. Everyone is different and will require a highly individualized treatment plan. Lifestyle changes can also affect your anxiety levels.

Some tips for easing your anxiety includes:

  • Practicing meditation
  • Dep breathing exercises
  • Prioritizing sleep
  • Limiting caffeine
  • Staying active.

You can also talk to your women’s health doctor to discuss how your hormones, menstrual cycle, and birth control contribute to your anxiety symptoms.
