Anxiety

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 can show up in very different ways, but we often see it through a lens of overwhelming fears. Anxiety disorders can affect all aspects of a person’s life, and can be incredibly debilitating. Do you notice yourself worrying often, being irritable, or having trouble sleeping? Do you experience anxiety in everyday social situations? Is it uncomfortable or stressful to interact socially? Maybe you feel like you’re constantly being judged by others?

Anxiety can drive you to succeed at work and show up for the people in your life, but it can also become debilitating. It can interfere with your ability to sleep, eat, and be present in your relationships. I draw from my training in mindfulness and EMDR to help clients manage their anxiety in the here and now, while also working toward understanding what's underneath all the worry.

Anxiety can be sneaky in how it presents itself within ones life. Like so many things in life, anxiety can present itself in different ways to different people. For some it may be perfectionism, avoidance, or it may present as overthinking. These are only some of the presentations that anxiety can present in day to day life. It is normal to have some level of anxiety responses, but if it begins impacting your day to day life it is important to reach out for support.

I help people struggling with anxiety stemming from a desire to be perfect or to overachieve. I have a history as an overachiever, someone who needs to analyze every aspect before making a leap. My own experiences are not yours; my past gives me some insight into what it is like to be that person. I have helped people who struggle with these challenges overcome them and find freedom from these thoughts and let go of those unrealistic expectations.

Anxiety may manifest itself differently across everyone. Some people experience physical sensations or pain, emotional distress, anger/irritability, or "freezing" and feeling unable to move. My approach in therapy is to explore how the anxiety appears for you and what potential causes or contributing factors exist. We then work on an anxiety management plan consisting of coping skills, lifestyle modifications, and support building.

Anxiety shows up when we get locked into "fight-flight-or-freeze" mode. Our bodies have a great built-in system to keep us from danger, but when the system gets triggered too easily, or too often, it can get in our way. I work with clients learning to identify this self-defense mechanism, what causes their anxiety, and working on tools to reduce anxiety.

— Barton Shulman, Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in San Francisco, CA
