Child/Teen Panic Attacks

Are panic attacks ruining your child’s life?

Seeing your child or teen have a panic attack
can be extremely distressing for a parent.

But panic attacks CAN be eliminated with the right kind of therapy.

As anxiety specialists, we practice the techniques shown by research to be most effective for stopping panic attacks in children and teens.


For a child suffering from panic attacks, life can be a constant battle. As a parent, you probably feel confused and frustrated. When they have an anxiety attack, it seems like there’s no way to calm them down.

Their heart races. They have trouble breathing. They feel sick.

It can be extremely intense, not only for them but for you too. Sometimes it seems like it comes out of nowhere. Then your child starts avoiding things to keep from triggering another attack.

They don’t want to hang out with their friends anymore. They don’t want to go out to eat. They may even refuse to go to school. You watch their world get smaller and smaller because of the anxiety and you don’t know what to do.

You want so badly for the attacks to go away so they can feel better.

At Anxiety Solutions of Denver, we can help. We specialize in anxiety and we have helped many children and teens just like yours eliminate their panic attacks and get their life back to normal.

Here are some common behaviors parents often see when their child or teen suffers from panic attacks:

  • Episodes of very intense anxiety where it is difficult or impossible to calm them down
  • Extreme fear of triggering another panic attack
  • Fear that a panic attack could kill them
  • Fear that there is something wrong with their body
  • Refusal to go certain places, especially crowded areas like the mall or the grocery store. Some kids eventually refuse to leave the house at all.
  • Excessively seeking reassurance from you that they are going to be ok or that they are not going to have an anxiety attack
  • Feeling sick often, even when they do not appear to be sick
  • Will only do certain things if you go with them but won’t do anything alone

How can you be sure our anxiety counseling
can actually help your child?

At Anxiety Solutions of Denver, we are different from most therapists because we specialize solely in anxiety disorders.

This means that ALL of our clients are coming to us for help with some form of anxiety.

When you bring your child to us, you can feel confident that we have successfully treated your child’s problem many times before and that we have the experience, knowledge, and skills needed to help them eliminate the problem.

Since we are anxiety specialists, you can also rest assured that your child is being helped by someone who is up to date on the latest, state-of-the-art treatment methods. We use a type of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) called Exposure Therapy, which has been proven to be the most effective treatment for children and teens with anxiety and panic attacks.

Most therapists do not specialize in anxiety and do not use this type of treatment. That’s why we often have success even with children and teens who have found other types of therapy unhelpful.
