Anxiety, Excessive Worrying or Stress? Help is Available at NSU

Anxiety is very common, but when it is excessive, uncontrollable, and impairing, it may be the sign of a treatable disorder. The Center for Psychological Studies (CPS) provides psychological services for individuals experiencing anxiety, excessive worry, fear, stress, uneasiness, and/or apprehension.

Although many people experience fears that are limited to specific situations or triggers, such as social anxiety, panic attacks, and phobias, individuals suffering from generalized anxiety feel chronically stressed, worry about many things, and experience physical symptoms such as muscle tension, restlessness, and fatigue. The hallmark feature of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is chronic, excessive worry that is difficult to control and intrudes on everyday functioning such as concentrating during a conversation or falling asleep at night.



NSU’s Anxiety and OCD and Related Disorders Clinics assists individuals who experience GAD, as well as other related problems. Clinic services are directed by Jedidiah Siev, Ph.D., assistant professor at the Center for Psychological Studies.  Siev was trained at the Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School and the University of Pennsylvania.

For more information about available services, please call the clinic at 954-262-5822.
