Has your anxiety started to overwhelm you?
Maybe you had a panic attack at work, or perhaps you’re having trouble coping with stress in your relationship. You may be struggling to complete your day-to-day activities, or completely avoiding them. Perhaps you’re feeling like a failure for not being able to handle these feelings yourself.
Whatever it is you’re experiencing, you’re beginning to notice the impact of this in every facet of your life:
- Your relationship is suffering due to your stress and irritability.
- You can’t stay focused and productive at work.
- You’re no longer staying connected with friends, or engaged in activities that make you feel good about yourself.
Therapy for anxiety can help.
It may feel impossible, but you can regain a sense of control over your mood and your life. You can start to feel calmer, more productive, and more fulfilled in your relationships. And I can help you get there.
Anxiety counseling helps you do 3 things:
- Explore the root of the problems you’re experiencing.
- Identify how to improve your relationship with yourself and others.
- Learn the tools that will help you resolve your problems so that you can move forward.
I’ll help through this process, tailoring each step to your unique needs and circumstances. My approach to therapy for anxiety comes from a place of hope: I believe people are capable of learning to handle their problems on their own, they just need some additional support sometimes.
You don’t have to live life feeling overwhelmed and out of control.
I can help you change that.
You May Still Have Questions About Therapy For Anxiety
What are therapy sessions like?
For therapy sessions we will either meet online or in my office in Duluth, GA. In general, during therapy sessions we will talk about the issues that you are struggling with and focus on understanding both where these issues come from and ways that you can cope with your situation. We will discuss what you can do to decrease your symptoms and how you can improve your relationships. I take an active role in therapy sessions, meaning that I talk frequently and often provide feedback.
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 it comes to going to counseling for anxiety, 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 therapy for anxiety 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?
Counseling for anxiety or panic attacks 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.
