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.

Ugh, anxiety. It’s painful, it can paralyze us, and really limit our lives. A lot of my clients try so hard to control anxiety by being perfect, being on alert all the time, and by masking so hard so that no one sees what we’re really like. Sometimes it is just too much pressure. My approach helps clients build tolerance to anxiety, change the way we look and react to anxiety, and heal the wounds that increase our anxiety.

Highly Sensitive People are easily overwhelmed due to our tendency to pick up subtleties in our environment and process that information deeply. This experience often leads to feelings of anxiety when we our ratio of rest/downtime and stress is unbalanced. “All highly sensitive people worry to some degree. Again, it is part of their survival strategy to consider what the future might bring - to learn from threats and failures. To observe and deeply process the world around them.” - Dr. Elaine Aron
