Anxiety

Anxiety doesn’t have to hijack your life.

There are many symptoms of anxiety – which can appear physically or emotionally, and disrupt your daily life. We’ll work with you to find relief not just from your anxiety symptoms, but their underlying causes. So you can finally feel release from the daily grip anxiety can hold.

Over time, therapy for anxiety can help you:

  • Stop the cycle of constant worrying and feel at peace again
  • Manage and break free of panic attacks
  • Get back the desire to participate in everyday activities
  • Learn how to focus and concentrate again
  • Get a peaceful night sleep after weeks or months of restlessness
  • Regain your appetite and learn healthy eating habits

What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

To help create positive change to long-standing patterns of behavior and thinking, many of our therapists use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques. We all have unique personalities, but there is a remarkable tendency to fall into similar distorted ways of thinking about ourselves and the world when depressed or anxious. Rather than writing off a series of unfortunate events as “bad luck,” people often incorrectly adopt the belief “bad things always happen to me.” Many of these “cognitive distortions” cause us to feel worse and interfere with our ability to perform to our potential. Using CBT, we try to quickly help our clients understand their habitual thinking patterns, identifying those that work well and those that lead to more depression or fear. This is a practical, down-to-earth approach focused largely on helping clients achieve their identified goals.
