Riverside Counseling Center, like most other mental health practices around the world, has seen a marked increase in the number of mental health patients coming in for help with anxiety and depression. Many of those with pre-existing mental health symptoms have seen an increase in symptoms and disability.
Those with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) are often most affected. Those struggling with OCD may have a long-term concern with germs that become magnified into terror-like anxiety as they consider the risk of Covid infection.

With helpful professional counseling and< sometimes, the right medication, many people with Covid-anxiety can find relief from anxiety. We are happy to help these individuals to regain care-free enjoyment of life.
