Local counselor treating more people with anxiety, panic attacks
Article Date: Dec 2, 2013



Local doctors are seeing more people suffering from anxiety and panic attacks, a real medical condition with promising treatment options.

It’s not fully clear what causes anxiety. Theories include upbringing, genetics, or exposure to traumatic events or prolonged stress.

Jim Kleveter, a national certified counselor with Alegent Creighton Health, has theories as well.

"I grew up in the 70's and places were closed down on Sundays and Saturdays," said Kleveter.  "Things are moving at such a faster pace where people don't have time to sit back and practice relaxation and stress management to stave off anxiety."

Kleveter is seeing more people in his office who suffer from anxiety disorders and panic attacks.

"It is a real medical condition, due to the fact that we have physiological symptoms happening," described Kleveter.
