Anxiety is a normal human emotion that everyone experiences at times. Many people feel anxious, or nervous, when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or making an important decision. Anxiety disorders, however, are different. They can cause such distress that it interferes with a person's ability to lead a normal life.


An anxiety disorder is a serious mental illness. Symptoms vary depending on the type of anxiety disorder, but generally include:


• Feelings of panic, fear, and uneasiness

• Problems sleeping

• Cold or sweaty hands and/or feet

• Shortness of breath

• Heart palpitations

• An inability to be still and calm

• Dry mouth

• Numbness or tingling in the hands or feet

• Nausea

• Muscle tension

• Dizziness


If you think you might be suffering from any form of anxiety and would like support to improve your life, contact SPS at 401-785-0040 or stop by our office to arrange to meet with one of our trained psychologists for a confidential initial assessment.


No referral is needed to schedule an appointment and SPS accepts most insurance plans and credit cards are accepted.
