Counseling for Anxiety
Anxiety is a normal part of human existence. At a low level, it can feel like the anticipation and excitement you need to do your best on a job interview. At higher levels, it can range from unpleasant tension to immobilizing fears. Higher levels of anxiety are hard to ignore. As a result, anxiety is often the symptom that provides the initial motivation to consider reaching out to a therapist for help.
Research shows that therapy can be an effective option for reducing anxiety. Therapy can help you to develop your awareness of unhelpful, habitual, fear-based thought patterns that contribute to anxiety and worry. Therapy can also help you to identify and address unfinished business in your life that is continuing to make its presence felt. Counseling can also help you to learn ways to address the physical manifestations of anxiety, such as tension and tightness in your body. My mind-body approach to helping people reduce and manage anxiety includes elements of Mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
