Counseling for Anxiety

You’ve got a buzzing sense of dread in your chest, a heavy weight in your stomach and no matter how you try to logic yourself out of it, you find yourself revisiting the same thoughts and concerns over and over on an endless loop. It’s like you’re always right on the verge of thinking yourself out of a situation or emotion. Slowly you begin to lose focus of the stuff you enjoy as the anxiety eats you up from the inside out. The most frustrating part is that the more you fight it, the worse it gets. Lots of folks start avoiding the things that make them feel anxious and their world gets smaller and smaller. Many try to control the anxiety by controlling themselves, others, or situations. Often, lots of us aren’t even aware we’re doing this until we wake up to a life we don’t recognize or like very much.

Often, these are the symptoms of anxiety:

  • Nervousness, restlessness, or being tense

  • Feelings of danger, panic, or dread

  • Rapid breathing or hyperventilation

  • Increased or heavy sweating

  • Trembling or muscle twitching

  • Weakness or lethargy

  • Difficulty focusing or thinking clearly about anything other than the thing you’re worried about

  • Insomnia

  • Obsessions about certain ideas

  • Anxiety surrounding a particular life event or experience that has occurred in the past


Therapy can help reduce your symptoms by helping you get control of what is actually controllable, most especially your attention. Our work together can help you uncover the underlying causes of your worries and fears and locate a sense of peace in the midst of the pain of the past and worries of the future.

If you suffer from an anxiety, I invite you to contact me today for a free consultation.
