Ever feel like your anxiety is getting out of control? Anxiety can sometimes become a downward spiral and Dr. Fran Moriarty, Clinical Director for Mountain Valley Treatment Center in New Hampshire, joined Lon April 3, 2015 to explain how he tries to check that downward spiral. Moriarty explained that sometimes some event causes anxiety and it just feeds on itself getting worse and worse. This might include fear of leaving the house, or some obsessive and/or compulsive action where fear of what might happen overwhelms the person or from fear of social judgment. At this point it becomes pathological needing the attention of a trained therapist. Mountain Valley treats it by a wellness environment along with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and helping them to see that what they feared isn't as bad as they feared through mindfulness awareness.
