“Somewhere between the fact we know, and the anxiety we feel is the reality we live.” – Mamie Elizabeth Till-Mobley.
Is anxiety taking over your life? Does it feel like you can’t control it no matter how hard you try? Are you stressed from home, work, or school?
Often, these are common 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
Obsessions about certain ideas
Anxiety surrounding a particular life event or experience
When it comes to treating anxiety, 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.
I draw on proven therapies such as CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), and ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) to help you 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.
