  • Counseling for Anxiety

    Life is often overwhelming!  We all experience anxiety, but excessive stress alters how you process emotions and react to challenges.  In therapy, we address your concerns to help you navigate situations in a new way and develop better coping and problem-solving skills. I use evidence- based approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy to explore negative thought patterns and self-talk. Together we find creative new ways to approach those inevitable bumps in the road.

    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 of 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
    • Obsessions about specific ideas, a symptom 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 uncover the underlying causes of your worries and fears, so you learn how to relax, look at situations in a new, less frightening way, and develop better coping mechanisms and problem-solving skills.

    If you suffer from an anxiety disorder, I invite you to contact me today for a free consultation.
