Panic Attacks are defined by physical symptoms that occur “out of the blue” in a situation in which you would not expect to be nervous. Common physical symptoms that can occur during a panic attack are shortness of breath, heart palpitations, sweating numbness or tingling, feeling as if you are “going to die”, and worrying that you are “going crazy.”
Having a panic attack for the first or the hundredth time can be terrifying, especially if you don’t know what’s happening and what you need to do. You do not have to live in fear. At Healthy Behaviors of Westchester you will be provided with the education that you need to understand what is happening when you are having your own experience of panic. Dr. Segal, an expert in cognitive behavioral therapy, will work with you on the skills that you need. All of this is performed in our comfortable Westchester office located in White Plains, NY.
