Counseling For Anxiety
There is help available for you! Are you always feeling nervous or on edge? Do you have a hard time focusing on what you are doing? Have you ever experienced your heart racing or palms sweating? Having these symptoms makes life difficult! Like Depression, Anxiety may be a result of a specific life event or trauma. We will work together to help you decrease your level of stress, feelings of always being on edge, and level of irritability. Additionally, we will explore where your source of the anxiety is stemming from. Anxiety effects over 18.1% of people in the United States. Again, like Depression, It does not discriminate as children, adolescents, adults and elderly can all be affected by anxiety. Anxiety is real, and can be debilitating for some people. Most importantly, in beginning counseling for anxiety, you will learn how to decrease your level of stress and nervousness, and increase your ability to participate in your daily activities. In working with individuals, I utilize talk therapy, art therapy, play therapy, as well as EMDR. As is mentioned on my About Me page, your decision to seek therapy shows you have an inner strength, and it is a privilege for me to work with you on your journey. When working with individuals with depression, I personalize the therapy for each individual. While CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) might be good for one person, another person might have more success with DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), Mindfulness, as well as other treatment therapies. When you that take the first step to enter therapy, you are taking the most important step in your beginning your journey.
