Anxiety Treatment

Are You Overwhelmed By Stress And Anxiety?

  • Are you juggling so many tasks at home and at work that you can never keep track of everything you need to do?
  • Have you been stuck in “catch-up mode” for months? Do you feel like no matter what you do, you’re never quite good enough to meet everyone’s high expectations?
  • Are you drowning in stress because of your extensive to-do list, but feel like you can't turn to anyone for help?
  • Are you trying your best to fulfill all your obligations, but feel like you are stretched so thin that you're always worried about forgetting something?
  • Do you frequently ruminate on worst-case scenarios and don't know how to break out of these thought patterns?

Anxiety Can Leave You Exhausted

You know you work a lot, but at the end of the day, you don’t feel a sense of accomplishment. You’re likely physically and emotionally drained and have very little time for self-care. As a result, you struggle to work up the energy just to get through the day.

Anxiety can make you feel irritable, and you might catch yourself getting frustrated with your friends, family, and coworkers due to the pressure you’re under. If you have children, your existing anxiety can make parenting difficult. And at the same time, being a parent increases your anxiety because you worry about your children.

Perhaps you miss the days when you felt competent and collected. You wish you could show up as your best self again, but you don’t know how to move forward.

By working with a therapist, you can get the chance to recover from anxiety and reconnect with yourself.

Anxiety Is One Of The Most Common Mental Health Conditions

It’s easy to feel like everyone else is more successful with handling their responsibilities. But truthfully, lots of people today are struggling to deal with stress and anxiety. In fact, anxiety is actually one of the most widespread mental health conditions in the world.
On top of that, the COVID-19 pandemic has left people increasingly isolated, making it harder for those suffering from anxiety to get the support they need. It is no wonder that anxiety is on the rise.

Societal Pressure Can Exacerbate Anxiety

The weight of societal expectations can easily contribute to anxiety. Many women feel torn between their professional and personal lives, which leads to excessive worry that seeps into all areas of their lives. On the other hand, men feel as though they need to be stoic and self-assured at all times, and when they’re dealing with stress, they worry that opening up will make them seem weak.

Furthermore, we are constantly exposed to implicit and explicit messages about what we should want or what our lives should look like through social media. The inability to meet these unrealistic standards only serves to set us up for disappointment. It can start to seem like everyone else is succeeding except for you. When you’re striving to model your life after these unattainable images, you’ll never feel truly happy with yourself.

Thankfully, it’s entirely possible to overcome anxiety in a healthy way. 

Through therapy, you can determine what’s causing your anxiety and learn how to live by your own standards rather than the expectations dictated by society.

What To Expect In Anxiety Treatment Sessions

At Center 4 Growth Psychotherapy, you’ll be able to reflect on your personal expectations with guidance from a compassionate therapist. With guidance from a counselor, you’ll explore how your relationships might influence your anxiety, determine your primary sources of stress, and gain the tools you need to manage symptoms in your daily life.

In your first session, you’ll talk about your history with anxiety with your therapist. You can discuss the symptoms that you’ve been struggling with, when you began experiencing anxiety, and how it has affected your life. You’ll also discuss your objectives for therapy and what lifestyle changes you want to work towards through anxiety treatment.

Identifying exactly what’s causing your anxiety is the first step to healing. In therapy, you and your counselor will examine the patterns that could be contributing to your anxiety. Additionally, you’ll analyze your relationships and think about whether you need more support from the people in your life.

Treatment Approaches For Anxiety Counseling

Your anxiety treatment plan will be designed around your specific needs and what you hope to get out of therapy. In our practice, we emphasize psychodynamic therapy, which allows you to delve into childhood events that may be affecting your mental health today. We can also incorporate systems therapies into your treatment plan to help you understand how generational, cultural, and societal influences could be driving your anxiety symptoms.

Many people suffering from anxiety realize that their behavioral patterns, thoughts, and feelings are all connected, but they don’t know how to shift their behavior in a way that will improve their emotional well-being. To address these anxiety-related issues, your therapist can guide you through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), enabling you to change your habits so that you can develop healthier thought patterns. Additionally, through Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), you can shift your mindset to make the best of difficult circumstances.

Furthermore, you may benefit from existential therapy. This approach can help you figure out where you derive a sense of purpose so that you can build a life that feels meaningful. When you’ve identified your own purpose, it’s easier to tune out societal pressures and focus on what matters most to you.

In therapy, you’ll discover that knowledge is power. When you understand which factors are driving your anxiety, you’ll be able to address these root issues, find relief from your symptoms, and live a life that you genuinely love.

But You May Still Have Questions
About Anxiety Treatment…

With my schedule and budget, I don’t think I have room in my life for therapy.

Starting therapy can feel like a difficult choice, and if you’re worried that you don’t have enough time or money for regular sessions, you might be nervous about making this commitment. But investing in your psychological health and emotional well-being is worth the effort. While therapy won’t lead to overnight improvements, you may start noticing a significant, long-lasting reduction in your symptoms in about 12 sessions. Furthermore, with virtual therapy sessions, you won’t have to spend time commuting to an office.

Will I have to take medication to treat my anxiety?

Many people struggling with anxiety notice clear benefits from regular talk therapy sessions. By taking the time to explore the roots of your symptoms and engage in self-reflection, you can make dramatic progress. However, if your symptoms are debilitating, we might recommend combining medication and talk therapy to help you manage your anxiety and find real relief.

Can counseling really help me overcome anxiety?

Perhaps you’ve been dealing with anxiety for so long that you can barely remember what life was like before you dealt with these symptoms. But with deliberate, ongoing effort and guidance from an experienced therapist, you can achieve meaningful life changes. With time, you can get your symptoms under control, reach your personal goals, and start genuinely enjoying your life again.
