See What They Have To Say...

I was very pleased with the relationship that I developed with my therapist.  She was very helpful to me while seeing her and will use her again if ever needed.

Very nice place! My husband and I went to The Calli Institute this week and I was so impressed with everything!  The staff at the front desk is very polite and informative and our therapist, Amanda is incredible!  The atmosphere is very different than any other counseling place we have been and it makes a huge difference.  We plan to return weekly!
- Shauna
I am amazed at how well the staff and nurse practitioner work to help me get my meds and appointments met at a proper and efficient time!

I have been to a bunch of different therapists, but this place is by far the BEST!  It is so comfortable, it is like being in someone’s home!  The staff is very respectful and my therapist, Nicole, is excellent!  I am so happy I found her!

I have been very happy with my care at Calli and felt very comfortable there.  I haven’t been there in a few months, but plan on scheduling an appointment soon.  Thank you for your exceptional care and great facility.

We would not hesitate to recommend Calli.  My wife and I felt very comfortable from the very first call to Calli Institute.  The environment is warm and our therapist was very kind and professional.

Anxiety

Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health disorders diagnosed in the United States. Anxiety disorder is an umbrella term that covers several different forms of this common psychiatric condition including:

  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder 
  • Panic Disorder
  • Phobias
  • Separation Anxiety
  • Social Anxiety

Anxiety can be episodic or chronic depending on whether an individual experiences time-limited or continuous symptoms. Symptoms of anxiety are excessive to what one would likely feel in response to life stressors. These may include:

  • Worrying
  • Ruminative thoughts
  • Feeling nervous or on edge
  • Irrational fears about certain things or things in general
  • Irritability
  • Poor concentration
  • Mental apprehension
  • An exaggerated startle response
  • Dissociation

Anxiety is often accompanied by physical symptoms such as:

  • Chronic muscle tension
  • Headaches
  • Stomach upset
  • Diarrhea
  • Heart palpitations or a pounding heart
  • Chest tightness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Insomnia

Anxiety is a natural, necessary human emotion. It can motivate us to study for a test or prepare for a presentation. It can also protect us in situations that require us to be on alert such as walking to our car in a parking lot at night. Anxiety becomes a problem when its symptoms are excessive, linger beyond an immediate situation that would normally cause stress and affect our ability to function at work or school and in our relationships.

Anxiety disorders are treatable. Different types of psychotherapy, relaxation exercises, diet and lifestyle changes and sometimes medications can change your life if you struggle with an anxiety disorder.
