Counseling for Anxiety
That feeling of dread, restlessness, and uneasiness… Some stress is normal and can actually help us to focus and act. When symptoms don’t go away and begin to interfere with our regular functioning, though, we can feel overwhelmed and out of control.
Is anxiety taking over your life? Does it feel like you can’t control it no matter how hard you try? Have you already tried therapy but found it ineffective? If this sounds like you, I’d like to help. I offer evidence-based practices to aid you in getting the relief from anxiety that you deserve.
When it comes to treating anxiety disorders, research shows that therapy is usually the most effective option. That’s because anxiety therapy – as opposed to anxiety medication – treats more than just symptoms to the problem.
Often, these are the symptoms of anxiety:
Nervousness, restlessness or being tense
Feelings of danger, panic or dread
Rapid breathing or hyperventilation
Increased or heavy sweating
Trembling or muscle twitching
Weakness or lethargy
Difficulty focusing or thinking clearly about anything other than the thing you’re worried about
Insomnia or broken sleep
Obsessions about certain ideas, a sign of obsessive-compulsive disorder
Anxiety surrounding a particular life event or experience that has occurred in the past, a sign of post-traumatic stress disorder
Therapy can help to uncover the underlying causes of your worries and fears, learn how to relax, look at situations in a new, less frightening way, and develop better coping mechanisms and problem-solving skills.
