Treatments for Anxiety and Depression

The knowledgeable psychiatric providers at our office in Austin, TX, treat anxiety and depression using a biological approach. That means your medical history will be reviewed to rule out any physical health conditions that might be causing the anxiety or depression, or producing similar symptoms. If an underlying physical problem is the cause, treating that condition could alleviate symptoms related to anxiety or depression.

Once other conditions have been ruled out and a diagnosis of anxiety or depression is made, then a treatment plan will be developed. Treatment differs from one individual to the next and depends on various factors, such as the severity of the anxiety or depression. Treatment could include counseling or therapy, prescription medications, or lifestyle recommendations, such as establishing a sleep schedule or exercising regularly.
