Understanding Anxiety Disorders

Experiencing occasional anxiety is a normal aspect of life. However, when worry, racing thoughts, and nervousness persist without a clear cause or linger long after a stressful situation has ended, it might indicate an anxiety disorder.

Anxiety disorders are the most prevalent mental health concern in the U.S., affecting over 40 million individuals. While they can occur at any age, they are especially common among adults. Recognizing the signs is the first step toward treatment.

The origins of anxiety disorders are multifaceted, involving a combination of genetic, environmental, psychological, and physical factors. These conditions may arise from:

  • Genetic predispositions that make certain individuals more susceptible to anxiety
  • Imbalances in brain chemistry affecting neurotransmitter function
  • Environmental stressors, including traumatic events and daily pressures
  • Underlying medical conditions that can exacerbate or trigger anxiety symptoms
  • Lifestyle factors, such as workload, relationship dynamics, and personal habits

Anxiety Symptoms

Anxiety disorders manifest through various symptoms, disrupting daily life:

  • Panic attacks
  • Persistent restlessness
  • Overwhelming nervousness
  • Feelings of doom without specific triggers
  • Elevated heart rate
  • Quickened breathing
  • Racing thoughts
  • Trouble focusing
  • Excessive worry
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Unusual fatigue
  • Causes of Anxiety Disorders

Anxiety disorders stem from a complex mix of genetic predisposition, brain chemistry imbalances, environmental stress, medical conditions, and lifestyle factors. Understanding these elements is crucial for effective treatment.

Dr. Maitra is awesome! I can't say enough about her. She cares about her patients and has a great team of co-workers. Swati goes above and beyond and handles extra tasks for me. More than recommended for anyone who wants a great professional at an accommodating clinic with a lovely team of staff members. Thanks for everything, guys!

I didn't want to consult a psychiatrist because my lifestyle demanded mental health therapy. I thought I could do it all, handle it all, and be the superwoman everyone thought I was and my family expected of me...anxiety and depression took over my life and I tried everything to rise above it. In my 20s, I was diagnosed with ADHD. Left untreated, the symptoms tormented my life and hurt people I loved. Dr. Maitra is compassionate and the best psychiatrist around. She helped me understand I had a biological imbalance, not just a mental illness. She gave me the strength to share my journey without shame. Dr. Maitra has also been helping me with other private concerns, so I'm confident and hopeful I can overcome these too. Her office is gorgeous and her team handles the important aspects! I would recommend her to anyone who needs a second or third opportunity, is hesitant about a diagnosis, fears judgment, or has lost hope!

She's humble and kind. If you trust her, she can change your life too!

Dr Maitra is a genuine docter I have seenUntil now. She is giving me treatment forDepression. She is so Flexible and had been there for me every time I had a problem. She gives good medicine for depression.She is an amazing docter.
I found Dr Maitra and her wonderful staff during the pandemic. She was one of the very few doctors who responded to my many emails. Dr. Maitra is one of a kind! She is compassionate, genuinely cares about her patients, and willing to meet them where they are to help them get well.
I love Lumos. Not only is Dr. Maitra a caring, warm, smart and experienced Psychiatrist, her staff is also caring and efficient. Can't ask for a better team.
Dr. Maitra is very caring, compassionate and concerned about patient health. My wife is her patient. Dr. Maitra is so sweet that my wife sees her niece in her.She understands the patient current and past situation and tries to accommodate and help and work around that.She doesn’t enforce her opinions and listens patiently about patient situations and prescribes medication that a patient can tolerate.She works with patient and not against. I am fortunate to have her treat my wife.I would highly recommend Dr. Maitra.

I would highly recommend Dr. Maitra. She is the best psychiatrist i have come across. She listens so patiently, and her approach is so honest and remarkable.
Lumos Clinical has been a God send for my Wife and I. Dr Maitra is someone who is extremely intelligent and qualified in her field and she is also very compassionate and understanding.She has a way of getting through to people, empathizing with them and really helping them. Then there is Riya, and if you are lucky enough to speak to her, you already know she exhibits the upmost compassion, empathy and care. She was a large reason I chose to take my Wife to Lumos and it led us to an amazing Dr and rest of staff.
I cannot express how great my appreciation is for the staff and Doctors at Lumos Clinic. Dr Maitra and Swati have changed my view of psychiatric help because of their unending kindness and accommodation- I can schedule appointments over text increasing the likelihood I will get help. If you’re looking for help then I can’t recommend this clinic more. Dr Maitra has a diverse background working with a wide variety of patients, she’s incredibly smart, non-judgemental and has made the difference for me when other doctors in San Jose couldn’t.
Dr Maitra has been treating our son who has an eating disorder. She is the first doctor that my son has liked and she has had a lot of successes with our son. She is flexible and hard working and her staff is very professional. She has good instincts and incites. Strongly recommended.
Dr. Maitra is the most caring and compassionate doctor I have ever worked with. She takes her time to understand her patient's needs and is genuinely interested in helping her patients. She won't suggest a course of action that isn't in the patient's best interest. Her team is also amazing. Swati is on top of everything. She's literally the best administrator I've ever worked with. This clinic is the best, and I highly recommend them.
Dr. Maitra And Her Staff Are The Most Effective Team. Dr. Maitra Takes Out Time To Personally Ensure The Well Being of Her Clients. Dr. Maitra Is Profesional And Compassionate. The Team Also Works Together With Care When Speaking With The Client And Scheduling Accurate Calendar Invitations!Thank You And Your Team For All You Do!Blessings!💙🔥🙏🏼💥✝️🦋💜
Highly recommended! Dr Maitra is a great doctor and also she is very human and sensible to the patient concerns. 5 out of 5 stars definitely!
Dr. Is the best in the world
I was quite reluctant to find a psychiatrist becuase I just didn’t want to fathom That I needed mental health assistance in the way I lived my life. I thought I could do it all, cope with it all- be the super woman that others thought me to be and my family expected out of me…anxiety and at depression took over my life and I tried everything to rise above it all…. I was diagnosed with ADDHD in my twenties but had stopped taking medication because I didn’t want to jeopardize the health of my unborn babies as some of the ADDHD medication posed pre-natal issues as well as birth defects. ( I had 4 children during the course of this time period of my life ) but unresolved anxiety and symptoms of ADDHD kept haunting not just my life but negatively impacted those I loved the most. I knew I had to face the demons and bring resolve to live a more fruitful life and become the best version of myself!I conducted a ton of due diligence and my research lead me to dr Maitra. Dr Maitra diagnosed me quickly and came up with a treatment plan that worked. She is caring, kind and frankly the best psychiatrist anyone could find. She didn’t make me feel like I had a mental illness but that I had a chemical imbalance that needed to be dealt with . For ex diabetics need insulin due to an imbalance and I required medication due to the chemical imbalance I had in my genetic makeup.Because of her I have the courage to share my journey - I’m not afraid or ashamed to share. Dr maitra has been helping me with some other private issues and I have the confidence and hope that I will be able to over come these issues as well. Her office is beautiful and she has a staff that’s on top of the details that matter ! I highly recommend her to anyone that needs a second chance or third chance, for anyone that is unsure about a diagnosis, for anyone that feels the fear of being judged, for anyone that has lost hope!She’s down to earth and has a heart of Gold she changed my life and I’m sure she has the ability to change yours if you just take the leap of faith and trust her like I did!:)
If you’re looking for a psychiatrist you have found one. Have been seeing her for 8 months and I highly recommend her. Despite a gap of several months she has been a rock to lean on. Throughout our sessions I continue to be surprised and impressed by her kindness, flexibility, manner and her ability to simplify seemingly complicated situations or emotional reactions. She is new to the area but her office is already growing and her awesome staff(Swati) are able to text to schedule or change appointments. We’ve only met via Microsoft teams but I feel closer to her than doctors I’ve met in person. Schedule with her she is non-judgemental and an extremely smart well-rounded person. You will love her!
Wonderful Doctor. She listens carefully, never hurries and make you feel comfortable talking about your symptoms. Her support and medication helped me a lot. She patiently analyzed and treated my issue. Followup emails and scheduling is great. The staff are friendly and thorough about details.
Dr. Maitra has remarkable listening skills. She understands her patients needs and partners with them to ensure good heath. I strongly recommend her and her conscientious team.
I came to get my blood drawn and Kosar and Lina were really kind and professional. They explained every step and made sure I was comfortable and understood what was going on. Great staff👍🏼
The best Doctor I’ve seen! She’s kind, she listened well , she works with you for your goals. She also went out of her way to help with treatment. I recommend her highly. Very practical and down to earth.
Dr.maitra is very compassionate and caring towards her patients.I highly recommend her.
