Has Anxiety Made Your Life More Difficult?
Are you overwhelmed by thoughts racing through your mind? Do you constantly worry about what needs to be done next? Has fear made it difficult to be around other people? Do you wake up anxious about the day ahead? Is it hard to go to sleep a night because of thoughts racing through your mind? Is your anxiety making it hard to get through the day? Perhaps you think about problems at work, home, or relationships so much that it is difficult to get things done.
Many People Have Different Types of Anxiety
People experience anxiety in many different ways. You may have fears of the unknown, fears of specific things, or anxiety over certain things that could happen. These fears can cause significant stress, distress, worry and even physical symptoms. You may be experiencing shakiness or heart racing. For others, anxiety may be more about social situations and what could go wrong or what people will think. Maybe you have anxiety from a trauma or significant loss. For others panic and anxiety seems to happen for no apparent reason. Whatever type of anxiety you may be experiencing, it can cause difficult sleeping, trouble with concentration, increased stress, struggles in relationships, and physical symptoms such as stomach aches, headaches, shaking, and heart racing. It can cause difficulties at work, school, family relationships, and friendships. Anxiety treatment can help with all different types of anxiety.
Sometimes Family and Friends Don't Understand
Unlike physical ailments, anxiety is often misunderstood by the people around you. They may tell you to power through or just pray about it. They may not understand why you avoid certain people or situations.
When this happens you try to push through and worry about being a burden to those around you, which only makes your anxiety worse. You do all this to live up to standards of others and push aside your own life satisfaction.
Like so many others you just want to understand what's going on and how to gain freedom from the anxiety. In anxiety treatment we can help you evaluate these situations and learn new ways to respond to yourself and those around you. There is hope!
Many People Struggle With Anxiety
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, "An estimated 19.1% of U.S. adults had any anxiety disorder in the past year…an estimated 22.8% had serious impairment, and 33.7% had moderate impairment" and "An estimated 31.9% of adolescents had any anxiety disorder. Of adolescents with any anxiety disorder, an estimated 8.3% had severe impairment." In today's culture and with so much information being thrown at us everyday, it is not surprising that anxiety is so prevalent. Adults and teens are juggling many responsibilities and roles and the pressures to succeed are high. Fortunately anxiety treatment and anxiety therapy is very effective.

You May Have Some Concerns About Anxiety Treatment
"I'm not sure about talking to someone I don't know."
We understand that it can be uncomfortable at first and will work to put you at ease. Talking with someone outside of your circle in a supportive non-judgmental environment where you feel accepted and understood, can be very helpful in gaining insight to what you are experiencing, thinking, and feeling.
