I've been a psychologist in private practice in Southern California for over thirty-two years.
I treat all kinds of anxiety disorders. People call me up and tell me their symptoms. Here's
some you might have:
Apprehension, tension, uneasiness, anticipation of danger, motor tension, autonomic hyperactivity, fears, preoccupations, repetitive thoughts
Vigilance, scanning, avoidance of situations or things, panic sensations, heart palpitations, sweaty palms, rapid breathing, rigid or repetitive behaviors
People schedule an office visit. I ask them a full range of questions about their experiences, and help them decide whether they actually need a psychologist. I go through a very well- honed process. Here's some more symptoms:
Hypochondriasis, trembling, twitching, feeling shaky, muscle tension, aches or soreness, headaches, dry mouth, dizziness, nausea
Chest pains, restlessness, easy fatiguing, shortness of breath or smothering sensations, sweating, cold or clammy hands
For the experience, clients pay for an office visit, plus often have to deal with managed care or their insurance. After having done this with clients for a long time, I decided to write an ebook. I call it "How To Diagnose and Treat Your Anxiety." It's so people can do this themselves. It's about 46 pages and includes what I do with each client. Each series of questions and considerations is presented in the order I do it in the office. But you can follow along and do this yourself. This ebook will help you identify symptoms of anxiety, and show you how to rate the frequency and severity of your symptoms. There's also a description of the seven basic types (clinical categories) of anxiety disorders. Here's some more symptoms:
Lightheadedness, diarrhea or other abdominal distress, flushing, hot flashes, chills, sleep problems, racing thoughts
Frequent urination, trouble swallowing, exaggerated startle response, difficulty concentrating, "blank" mind
This ebook shows you how to figure out where you "fall" relative to others. The charts are simple to interpret and right away you'll know whether or not to call a therapist. This process is the one I've used for years. You are following along with my thinking. It is straightforward, clear and effective. But at the same time, this is much more comprehensive, clinically accurate than simple internet checklists. Near the end, I've included some treatment strategies that you usually don't get in a book or on the Internet.
Many of you do not need a therapist, and even if you do, the techniques I walk you through will decrease your anxiety symptoms without paying big bucks. The treatment strategies are surprisingly helpful. For those of you who do need a therapist, this material will clearly show you why and outline the category or categories into which your symptoms fall. You will know the exact information to give a professional, if you need one. (This will help you to effectively"shop" for a therapist.) It also can be used to help others realize they may need some help, especially if they are in denial. While it is not meant to substitute for a professional's judgment and training, this ebook will go a long way towards using professional knowledge to help you or someone you know make a very informed decision about their experiences of anxiety. It will provide direction, greater certainty and relief, especially if your symptoms are a mystery. Here's a couple of comments from past purchasers...
"First of all, thank you for your informative and
well-written piece on Anxiety. I have read it and feel confident that I'm in touch with someone who knows the subject, it's ancillary relationships, and resulting disorders. Thanks again for the monograph (single subject paper, Ed.). It did a great job of demystifying anxiety." -C.M., San Diego , CA.
"I thought that the information provided in the monograph was helpful to me in many ways. It addressed many of the questions that I had about anxiety and its symptoms. Most importantly, it has helped to encourage me to seek professional help for the anxiety that I have been experiencing." Sincerely, -A.L., San Diego, CA.
"I can't begin to tell you how grateful I am for everything you've done for me! You absolutely changed my life and I'm more appreciative than words could express. Since our visits years ago, I've been panic-attack free and for that I'm going to be forever grateful to you :)" G.J., Escondido, CA.

Many people want to sample an author's work before they buy an ebook. This makes sense, so... I included some links to articles I've written on Anxiety. These are one-page articles for the general public, but reveal different aspects of this very broad subject. These articles are posted on Article Directories, which are very popular ways of disseminating information. The articles will also give the reader a sample of the author's writing style. To access these articles, look on the menu bar on the top and right of this webpage. You will see menu buttons (Article #1, Article #2, etc.). Each links you to a different article posted on one of many Article Directories. You can peruse the article(s), and then click the "Back" button on the top left of your browser to return to this page.
