OPINION: Therapist talks panic attacks

Dear Ask A Therapist,

How can I tell when anxiety and panic attacks are at concerning levels?


Dear reader, 

I can give you a quick view of what is good to know about anxiety and panic. Anxiety and panic attacks are disorders that can be treated effectively using psychotherapy or medications, or both, depending on the severity of the symptoms. Hallmarks of anxiety include excessive worry, feelings of dread and insomnia, to name a few.
