Therapy Can Help You Learn To Better Manage Your Anxiety
Do you struggle to relax because of constant worry?
Is it hard to fall or stay asleep at night due to replaying the day's events?
Do you struggle to find joy or happiness as a result of always anticipating the worst-case scenario?
It may feel as though you can never truly relax or be at peace. Maybe you find it challenging to manage relationships, responsibilities or even everyday life due to an ongoing sense of restlessness and lack of focus. Your anxiety may have manifested itself as "imposter syndrome" - doubting your own abilities and feeling that you are not worthy of what you have earned. As a result, you may fall into tendencies of perfectionism to avoid perceived judgement or rejection.
You may have developed physical symptoms such as difficulty sleeping, sweaty palms, headaches, and stomach issues. These can increase your worry and even lead to a panic attack.
These can rise to feeling that nothing is in your control and that things will never improve. Do you want to simply catch a break and be able to live in the moment? Respite from your worries is possible. Therapy can provide you with the clarity and guidance you need for overcoming anxiety.
Anxiety Therapy Can Help You Regain A Sense Of Joy and Freedom
We all experience feelings of anxiety at times - a first date, a job interview, a move - and especially during unexpected changes, such as COVID-19. The pressure of staying safe for yourself and those around you while trying to keep up with a self care routine that manages your stress can be overwhelming.
Not to mention in a social media world, the pressure to be happy is harder than ever to avoid. We often see other's "perfect" lives on Facebook or Instagram and often find ourselves focusing in on where we lack in comparison.
I use an integrative approach that fuses cognitive behavioral therapies with mindfulness, emotional regulation skills and attachment based approaches to understand the origins of our anxiety. Strength-based exercises will be utilized to empower you to re-establish a healthy relationship with your thoughts, feelings and actions.
And while Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and other modalities are scientifically validated for anxiety treatment, research shows the greatest measure of success of therapy is finding a relationship with a therapist built on trust and honesty.
We will spend some time getting to know each other during an initial consultation and intake that allows me to see how I can best support you in achieving the goals you set forth for our work together. I will foster a welcoming space where you'll be free to explore your fears as you gain insight into which behaviors help and which ones are actually making your anxiety worse. As I get more familiar with your lived experiences, I'll be able to provide tools, which can best support your individual needs.
Your ability to face your fears and reduce your overall level of anxiety is possible once you understand why these feelings are manifesting and how your experiences has shaped your world view. Once you allow yourself to become vulnerable in exploring your feelings, you'll be able to make better sense of how they're contributing to sensations of being overwhelmed, accumulating stress and anxiety.
Therapy is an investment in yourself and your mental health. I am ready to support you in leading a life without constant fear and worry. Contacting me is the first step in finding peace of mind.
