Feeling a certain level of anxiety over big stressors or certain life events is totally normal. However, if you find that your fear or worry does not go away and, in fact, gets worse over time, you may be suffering from an anxiety disorder. Mild anxiety is vague and unsettling and often passes quickly, while severe anxiety can seriously affect your day-to-day life. If you are finding your anxiety unmanageable, can’t identify the cause of your anxious feelings or if you are suffering from physical symptoms (such as heart palpations, fatigue, sweaty hands, upset stomach, or insomnia), it may be time to get help. Reach out to one of TherapyDen’s anxiety specialists today.

Anxiety, worry, or extreme apprehension is your body’s natural response to stress and can arise when introduced to stressful life events. Although anxiety is a natural reaction, in some cases, the worry begins to linger becoming pervasive and chronic. In result of this, sufferers start to dread their everyday routine leading to excessive nervousness and fear. EMDR is a tool we can use to decrease anxiety and reprocess trauma memories.

Anxiety is a human reaction, and can be treated as such. Learning how to acknowledge where and how our anxieties affect us can better help us understand the premise of our anxious tendencies.

I utilize a lot of mindfulness in my practice, as both a clinician and certified yoga instructor, I tend to focus a lot on calming and grounding techniques.

— Dr. Michael Drane, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in Everett, WA

Anxiety is often the result of an over-active defense mechanism. Whatever the original cause of this self-defense, it usually does a great job of protecting us from dangers. But true anxiety comes from that self-defense process running out of control; protecting us from dangers that are not present in the moment. Using evidence-based tools and practices, and working with each individual client (like you) to tailor a plan best suited for you, I help manage and reduce anxiety symptoms, recognize their causes, and work with you to reduce your anxiety, often transforming it into an ally instead of a cause of distress.

Anxiety may be our bodies best alarm system, but constant worry and anxiety can decrease our focus and clarity.

— Kim Davis, Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

FEAR has 2 meanings: Forget Everything and Run, OR Face Everything and Rise. Stepping outside our “comfort zone” can be scary. Anxiety wreaks havoc on our health & relationships. Understanding how our brain & body process anxiety is important! Coping tools help us “re-wire the brain” to change the outcome of how we view & respond to stressors. “A calm mind is the ultimate weapon against your challenges”. Together we can face those challenges, creating a calm, peaceful mind.
