Do you wonder what life might be like if you were free from feeling judged or embarrassed?
Whether you struggle with anxiety is in social situations, you worry a lot of the time, have had trouble with panic attacks or insomnia, or are stressed out, anxiety treatment can help.
Many People Struggle With Anxiety
Experiencing worry and stress can happen in everyday life. Yet, when it persists, or gets worse over time, it can get in the way of your work and your relationships. Having anxiety or stress in an age where we are able to now hide behind social media, doesn’t give us as many chances to address our struggles with everyday social interactions, and how to combat them. We also do not wear signs as to what we’re experiencing inside. Your struggle with anxiety or stress is different from anyone else's.
Often, stress that you encounter can bring anxiety to a, “head”. You may have had anxiety, but nothing had set it off before. You may have been through a stressful event, a life transition such as divorce or loss, or had interactions with others that made you realize that to lead your best life possible, you needed to do something for yourself.
Counseling can help you validate what you’ve been going through, uncover your thinking patterns, and help you find ways to move through your anxiety. This was my experience with anxiety. I was prone to it, but nothing had set it off before. I then felt it very necessary to assess what changes I needed to make in my own life, in order to lessen sources of stress that contributed to my anxiety, and how I responded to them as they happened. I keep the new things and people that helped me to see and experience things differently incorporated into my life. It is an everyday practice.
You Can Have Control Over Anxiety
Anxiety treatment can help lead you towards the feeling of being free of thoughts and feelings that have been getting in your way, and bring happiness and peace to your life. I understand how anxiety can consume your life, and I am here to help. I have helped people find ways to cope that they have carried with them into their daily lives. I will help you work towards feeling confident and secure with yourself so you can live the life you want.
What Does Anxiety Disorder Treatment Look Like?
I provide an open, non-judgmental environment for discussing what is going on for you. You will be accepted regardless of sexual, gender, cultural or spiritual orientation.
In sessions, you will be given a place to air your concerns. You will receive support, education, and strategies you can practice to have the best relationship with yourself. A therapeutic relationship, if you have never sought out therapy, can be helpful in itself. There is a trust established, where this time is for you. There are answers, but we will work on the ones that work best for you.
My approach is to help you develop the ability to listen to what you are saying to yourself, find out what your needs are, and help you where your anxiety is stemming from. Over time, what you begin to practice becomes your new daily life. As a result, you can feel more peaceful and accepting of yourself, and with others.
Anxiety can also be treated by Brainspotting.
You may feel that anxiety treatment can help you, but still have questions.
I’m not sure if it is just stress, or an anxiety disorder. I am not sure if I need anxiety disorder treatment.
Stress is a symptom of anxiety. You do not have to have every sign or symptom of an anxiety disorder to deserve help. Even if you feel you can manage your stress, and it is not debilitating, what you are experiencing is most likely preventing you from having your happiest, most rewarding life. You may not feel like you can reach out to others about what you are experiencing. As a result, you could be missing out on enjoying all life has to offer.
I think I can manage it on my own without having to spend money on therapy.
Many don’t want to spend money if they do not have to. Maybe you’ve already tried things to help yourself, and are now feeling frustrated. Professional anxiety treatment and support can give you a new way to look at and respond to things. This will result in a better understanding of what is happening inside. Making an investment in your emotional health may be the best decision you make for your long-term well-being.
I’m worried that if I seek out anxiety treatment, that it may cause more anxiety because I have to focus on the thoughts that have been bothering me even more.
This is a common worry. Many of my clients, and people in their lives that start to notice changes, are surprised to learn that once you start listening to your thoughts, you can improve the quality of your life. Many are able to start the process of becoming, “comfortable in their own skin”. This will then allow you to begin pursuing things you have wanted to do, that your anxiety has been holding you back from. When you learn to listen to your own intuition, you may be surprised at the happiness that enters your life.
A client once told me, “My family has noticed my changes, and asked me what was going on. I told them I had been seeing a therapist. They told me to keep it up!” --Anonymous*
