Anxiety and worry are emotions that everyone feels at times, and it can act as a protective measure when we are faced with potential danger or unfamiliar situations. For example, most people have some level of anxiety when a big project is due in school or at work, before making an important decision, or when health or financial issues arise. In many cases, anxiety may even be helpful, as it can tell us when something is wrong or needs to be changed. Feeling anxious about diving off that cliff into the water below? This anxiety allows you to take a step back and analyze the situation. Is it safe or unsafe? Is the water too shallow? What can you do to make it safer? This is how anxiety can work as a protective measure.
Unfortunately, anxiety can sometimes be disproportionate to the actual problem, or may exist when there’s no real threat at all, which can end up being debilitating. This can be an indication that you’re experiencing an anxiety disorder.
Common symptoms of an anxiety disorder include panic, fear, shortness of breath, breathing faster, heart palpitations, obsessive thoughts, insomnia, and feelings of doom or danger. This list is not exhaustive, and the fact that you experience some of these symptoms does not automatically mean you have an anxiety disorder. However, if you’re experiencing any of the symptoms listed above and it’s impacting your ability to function on a day-to-day basis, treatment should be considered.
It might feel like anxiety is engulfing your life, but the good news is that you can learn to manage your anxiety. Through proven methods, we can help you take control of your life back. We provide group therapy and individual therapy, and will tailor your treatment plan to fit your needs. We will continue to review your treatment plan to see what’s working and what may need to be altered. Therapy is a collaborative process, and we always want to know what you think is benefiting you and cultivating positive change.
Through therapy, anyone can learn new coping skills to better manage their worry and anxiety. We can also help you become more aware of your thoughts and how they are contributing to your anxiety. Bringing this into your awareness is the first step to change.
Even those without anxiety disorders can benefit from therapy, as there’s no need to wait for a significant problem to occur before seeking guidance from a trained professional.
