Almost every child becomes anxious at times, but when their anxiety becomes severe, frequent, or negatively impacts his life, or the family’s functioning, it is time to see us.
If anxious, your child may be:

- Have feelings of doom, impending harm.
- Restless, agitated, irritable.
- Sweating, breathing quickly, racing heart.
- Nail-biting, thumb sucking, stuttering.
- Avoiding others, certain situations.
- Unable to attend school.
- Unable to do her usual social activities.
- Tearful, moody, sleeping poorly.
- Suddenly having school problems.
