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 is a fire alarm. It's often a signal that something is wrong, something in our world feels scary. We all feel anxiety at moments in our lives, but often people come in to therapy when something else happens: they can't seem to stop. They can't slow down or control their heart or their restlessness. Our goal is to deepen our understanding and learn new ways of regulating anxiety together in session, so you are no longer trapped by anxiety, but empowered to live your best life.
