Why Come See Me For Therapy for Anxiety
Anxiety is a normal part of the human experience. It is our brain and body’s way of keeping us alert and protecting us. But anxiety can also stop being helpful and can start being disruptive to the point of being disabling for some people. Challenges with anxeity can show up in many ways, from panic attacks to chronic or persistent worry, sleep problems and inability to enjoy the present moment. It can present itself as ritualized behaviors and ways of thinking, such as OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) or terror or phobias over many different things or aspects of everyday life. Some people also experience it as perseverative thoughts that they can’t turn off and “catstrophizing” to worst case scenarios. Anxiety, however it presents itself, can interfere in your ability to live a peaceful and authentic life.
How therapy for anxiety can help is by first, helping you understand how and why your body (or nervous system) is responding the way it is. The second step in therapy for anxiety is learning ways to manage your anxiety though skill development. This step often has a huge impact on the quality of life for an individual and greatly increases the sense of being in control of ones body or experience. As a psychologist that has primarily focused on the treatment of PTSD and anxiety, I use many different evidence based approaches to therapy for anxiety, including treatment for OCD, panic attacks and excessive worry.
