Anxiety Disorders come in several varieties. All can be thought of as due to brain alarm systems that are out of balance, running in overdrive.

Such disorders include:

Panic Disorder
You experience sudden, shocking, intensely uncomfortable anxiety attacks that can ambush you any time. As a first step, medication can provide rapid relief.

You avoid many places and situations that you connect with triggering panics, which results in your life getting closed in. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) can help you open up your life again.

Generalized Anxiety Disorder
Your alarm systems are permanently set on high, leading to unrelieved discomfort and exhaustion. Medications, CBT and Talk Therapy can help.

Social Anxiety Disorder
Your hypersensitivity to the negative criticism of others interferes with your daily life and keeps you off-balance. Your shyness gets in the way of enjoying a satisfying social life. We can help bring you out of your shell.

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
Your brain’s Worry Center is running in overdrive, relentlessly wearing you down. We can help you throttle back your overthinking.

Specific Phobias
Your fear of flying, of public speaking, of tall buildings, of driving on the beltway, of snakes, etc., limits the range of your life. We have specialized methods that work to overcome most of these phobias.

Treatments for Anxiety Disorders can include:


  • Provides quick, temporary relief by dialing down excessive internal signals of warning and worry
  • Encourages hope for more progress thanks to the initial rapid reduction of extreme discomfort

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

  • Helps retrain your alarm systems to better match up with the reality of your life stresses

Talk Therapy

  • Surveys your life to figure out better strategies for coping with stresses and challenges
  • Works to discover the root causes of your problems and reduce their hold on you

Our Name

Why is our name Roundhouse?

We moved into our first office building in Old Town, Alexandria located on a site where once existed a railroad roundhouse. That’s how we got our name, Roundhouse Square Counseling Center.  The railroad metaphor inspired our tag line: “Getting you back on the right track.”
