Helping adults with anxiety discover ways to manage whatever life throws at them.
Life comes with a lot of constant worries and concerns. The stress of managing work, parenting, partnerships, finances, school, and more can be a lot. Sometimes it’s too much to handle all on your own. Anxiety therapy can help.
Most people who start therapy for anxiety or therapy for panic attacks feel like they are going around in circles, stuck repeating anxious patterns. Perhaps you can relate. Maybe you notice that you talk a lot about feeling stressed, tired, and unfulfilled, or that you feel paralyzed by anxiety and worry.
Stuck in these anxious cycles and feeling worried all the time, you may feel like life is spent constantly feeling “on edge.”
Do You Feel Stressed, Worried, or Panicky?
Do any of the following resonate with you?
- You are constantly worrying or thinking about the “what ifs,” and these thoughts seem to rule your life.
- You feel fear stricken, even in the “comfort” of your own home.
- You feel like you’re living at a frenzied pace leaving you frazzled and stressed.
- It is hard to relax, even when (logically) you know you don’t have anything to worry about.
- You have panic/anxiety attacks in certain situations and you have started avoiding these situations so you don’t have to panic about them.
If these statements sound true for you, we want you to know that you’re not “crazy.” Even though you might feel alone in your struggles, what you are going through is common. Life can be overwhelming at times, and it’s okay to ask for help when you need it.
Sometimes people avoid asking for help because they feel guilty for putting themselves first. It’s not selfish to prioritize caring for yourself. You don’t have to always prioritize work or others’ needs over your own needs.
Break The Cycles Of Anxiety And Stress
Even though it might be hard to imagine with how you are feeling right now, it is possible to feel better. Imagine a life where you could…
> Control how you respond to anxious thoughts.
> Have an improved attitude and mood, and be more productive.
> Shift into a more positive and hopeful outlook on life.
> Finally be free from the constant anxiety and the panic attacks.
> Stop letting anxiety impact the way you live or how you make decisions.

How Therapy for Anxiety Works
Therapy for anxiety consists of 50-minute, one-on-one sessions that help you work through your concerns. In addition to listening, we will ask questions, guide you toward solutions, and motivate you with ideas. We play an active role in therapy and won’t just sit there and stare at you the whole time, waiting for you to talk. Here’s how it will work step-by-step:
- First, we provide a safe, non-judgmental space so that you will feel comfortable sharing your struggles with your therapist.
- Through hearing your story, we will start to get a picture of what your challenges are.
- We will start with helping you with immediate concerns like managing difficult emotions and challenging life situations.
- We will also work to discover what your goals are in therapy and in life.
- Keeping your unique goals in mind, we’ll figure out what’s needed to help you reach them.
- Over the course of our sessions, you will start making progress towards the life you desire.
Research shows that therapy for anxiety or panic attacks can positively change how you think, along with your beliefs, emotions, and behaviors. It can help you let go of what’s holding you back.
You May Still Have Questions About Therapy For Anxiety
How can talking to a stranger about my problems help?
You may have tried talking to your friends and family about how you’re feeling, only to find that it didn’t help you feel much better. When you consider going to therapy, you might wonder why talking to a complete stranger about your problems would help if talking to the people you are closest to didn’t help. Therapy can actually be helpful because you’re talking to someone you don’t know. You’re talking to someone who is not involved in your life and who can listen to you objectively. You don’t have to worry about listening to the therapist’s problems or about how what you’re talking about is going to impact the therapist. Also, when you are talking to someone who is not involved in your life, you can feel free to be open about everything you are experiencing. If you have found the right therapist, you shouldn’t feel judged for anything you talk about, and it’s pretty hard to shock a therapist–we’ve heard just about everything.
Why can’t I handle my anxiety symptoms on my own?
People often feel that they should be able to handle things on their own, without any help from others. This leads to them waiting to get help until things have become unmanageable. We all need help sometimes, and there is no shame in reaching out for help when you are struggling. Even if you could manage to get through a difficult time on your own, it might be considerably less painful if you were to get some support for dealing with it. There’s no award for getting through hard times without asking for help, and it makes sense to take advantage of the resources that are available to you when you need them.
Is therapy worth the cost?
Therapy is an investment, not only of money, but also of time and energy. My guess is that you’ve tried other things to improve your life, but that these things haven’t helped. Often people have been struggling for a long time, and have lost years of their life to their symptoms. It is worth it to meet with a professional who has been helping people for many years to see how much you may be able to improve with treatment.
