Counseling for Anxiety

Counseling for Anxiety

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?  We look at anxiety in a different way than many other traditional Cognitive Behavioral Therapist.  We utilize Internal Family Systems and Cognitive Behavioral approaches and help you learn to look at the part of yourself that is anxious.  By examining and partnering with that part of yourself, you can learn to reduce your anxiety and work with it, instead of arguing against it.

If this sounds like you, we believe we can help. 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.

We also offer mindfulness groups periodically throughout the year to have your body experience calmness and connection to your inner self.

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 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.
