Some anxiety and worry is inevitable and a sign that you are, well… human. Though not everyone who experiences anxiety has an anxiety disorder, for some the symptoms are severe enough to impact their daily lives and health and professional help is needed. Approximately 40 million adults in the US are affected by anxiety in any given year, and in 2020 this number increased by almost 50%.
