Are You So Overwhelmed By Anxiety That You Have Trouble Staying Present In Your Life?

Do you constantly worry about the future?

Has your anxiety begun to cause sleepless nights and unproductive days?

Are you struggling with self-criticism and low self-esteem?

Perhaps you’ve tried pinpointing the source of your worries and gone to great lengths to reduce them, but they persist nonetheless. Or maybe you’re afraid that something is wrong with you and constantly fretting about saying the wrong thing to others.

Maybe you’re a mother dealing with high-functioning anxiety despite having a sound support system. Even though you are motivated, insightful, and well-educated in your line of work, you lack confidence as a parent. You’re seeking tools to manage the anxiety that affects your interactions with family, friends, and colleagues.

If this sounds familiar, anxiety therapy could be the solution to help you manage your symptoms and let go of your fears. Remember, anxiety is manageable and doesn’t have to define you.

Anxiety Symptoms Can Make Communicating With Difficult People A Challenge

Anxiety can make talking with the authority figures in your life, such as a boss or a higher-up colleague, seem impossible. You may desperately want help navigating these dynamics because they are starting to negatively affect you physically and emotionally with symptoms such as:

 

You may be able to function from day to day and even enjoy your life at times. However, the symptoms at hand and anxiety may be getting too hard to handle on your own. If this is the case, please connect with me. It’s my mission to help you reduce your stress, regulate your emotions, and live a more fulfilling life.

Anxiety Can Lead To A Lack Of Assertiveness

As humans, it’s natural to seek approval and want to be well-regarded. However, this desire can sometimes result in a lack of assertiveness, difficulty setting boundaries, and struggles with expressing needs. Acknowledging that you have needs can lead to anxiety if you fear potential rejection and struggle to communicate effectively.

Anxiety can also stem from the stresses of parenting. Insufficient time for self-care and a never-ending to-do list can contribute to overwhelming feelings of anxiety. 

Many people find it difficult to address specific issues on their own because they lack the expertise in best practices. They may often attempt to treat the symptoms rather than address the underlying core issue. It’s quite common for anxiety to worsen in such situations, especially since many coping skills that people resort to end up reinforcing patterns of anxious thinking.  

Therapy can help you treat the root causes of anxiety instead of just the symptoms.  It can also help you increase your assertiveness, giving you the communication skills to express your needs and improve your self-care.

Therapy Will Get To The Root Of Where Your Anxiety Stems From

As a therapist, I believe in the importance of working with you to develop long-term goals based on your individual needs and the presenting concerns causing your anxiety. For example, if you are worried about the future, we can discuss some of the underlying reasons for your fears. We will also discuss more personal struggles, such as your belief system and childhood experiences. These are the types of things that shape us into who we are and can also be a root cause of anxiety.

It is my job to provide you with therapy that gives you the tools you need to manage your symptoms and self-soothe when anxiety rears its ugly head. Together, we can improve your life for the better. You don’t have to keep living with anxiety.

Modalities Used For Anxiety Treatment

Together, we will discuss coping exercises and practice new ways of thinking, responding, and communicating in specific situations. Some of my anxiety treatments may include the following:

  • Mindfulness: The goal of mindfulness is to help you remain grounded in the present when anxiety becomes too powerful for its own good. This can be done by sitting quietly and meditating, practicing deep breathing, doing yoga, or focusing on the thoughts and sensations going on around you.

 

  • Solution-Focused Therapy: This type of therapy is all about finding what works best for your anxiety and adding to it with additional tools and coping strategies.

 

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: CBT is about understanding your thoughts, behaviors, and emotions that contribute to your anxiety. The ultimate goal is to to develop a more positive view of yourself so that you can change your emotions and behavior for the better.

 

  • Hypnosis: There may be a distorted view of hypnosis due to how it is portrayed in the media. However, when it comes to hypnosis for anxiety, it is nothing more or less than retraining your subconscious mind to think differently. 

 

Anxiety is a very common experience, but with the right motivation, self-awareness, understanding of its origins, and effective coping tools, it is absolutely possible to overcome the symptoms of anxiety and regain control of your life.

 

You May Be Interested In Anxiety Therapy But Have Some Inquiries…

The majority of individuals who are covered by insurance have out-of-network benefits. I collaborate with a company that assists my clients in submitting claims to their insurance to receive reimbursement for their sessions with me. The reimbursement process is straightforward, and many individuals receive 60-80% of the session costs refunded.

Each therapist has a unique approach to therapy. Some of the individuals I’ve worked with have shared their experiences with previous therapists who employed a “smile and nod” technique, offering little feedback and essentially just serving as a sounding board for the client. My approach differs significantly from this. I believe in creating collaborative sessions that are rich in feedback.

Previous therapists may not have utilized the therapeutic approach that worked best for you. If you are afraid to move forward because of previous roadblocks, we can find out what those roadblocks are and create tailored plans and goals so that things operate differently. Therapy is not a one-size-fits-all and should not be treated as such.
