Untreated anxiety lowers The Quality of Life

On the outside, you’re a busy overachiever. You seem put-together, motivated, proactive, friendly…but inside? …well, it’s messy. 

You feel anxious and on edge. You worry about the worst-case scenario. It’s so hard to relax. You can logically analyze the situation. You remind yourself of all the reasons why your feelings may not “make sense,” but that doesn’t help much, does it?

It may be because you’re not addressing the root of your anxiety. 

When your anxiety becomes persistent and things frequently feel like they’re about to spiral, it may be time to look at what could be going on through the process of therapy.

Address the root of your anxiety so you can move from surviving to thriving. Get help with your anxiety today

Our Approach to Treating Anxiety

Oftentimes, if you battle with anxiety, that may just be the tip of the iceberg. This is what you and your therapist will address together. You don’t have to deal with this alone. So much of what we do and how we feel are shaped by what happens outside of our awareness and understanding what this anxiety is about is the first step towards feeling better.

Here are some ways we might begin to address your anxiety:
𖥸 Identify patterns of thinking and feeling that keep you stuck
𖥸 Explore what your anxiety is communicating to you about your needs and wants
𖥸 Recognize the circumstances that make you anxious, understand the internal themes that these situations evoke, and address the issues, past and present, that your anxiety stems from
𖥸 Learn coping skills that help address anxiety

When you’re able to examine yourself from these different perspectives and recognize themes of thinking and feeling, new possibilities may open up, and you can then make informed decisions to move towards a life less bound by anxiety.
