In a State of Constant Worry?

Are you finding that anxiety and worry is taking over your life?

Does your stress level feel unmanageable and you can’t seem to get it under control?

Do you have uncomfortable symptoms like a racing heartbeat, constant inner tension or persistent nervousness?

If so, you may be experiencing a clinical level of anxiety which is the number one mental health complaint in America. Anxiety can include symptoms such as obtrusive, obsessive and / or worried thoughts, confusion and difficulty concentrating, pacing or restlessness, irritability, frustration, and even despair. When we are anxious we may feel physical sensations such as trembling, sweating, a racing heartbeat, nausea, and difficulty breathing. Anxiety that has a more severe and sudden onset is called a panic attack. Other physical symptoms can include headaches, insomnia, digestive problems, and light-headedness.

A person’s predisposition toward anxiety is usually a blend of “nature and nurture.” Recent research shows that our temperaments are probably more biologically based than shaped by our early environments. However, there are still high correlations that anxious children are likely born to anxious parents. Growing up in a stressful environment may also predispose someone to anxiety because anxiety becomes a way to anticipate danger and ensure safety. Anxiety can also develop as a result of unresolved trauma that leaves a person in a heightened physiological state of arousal. When this is the case, certain experiences may reactivate the old trauma, as is common for people experiencing post-traumatic stress (PTSD).

Over 20 million adults in the U.S. suffer from some type of anxiety. The good news is that people who seek help have a very high success rate. Everybody worries or gets anxious from time to time – and the right amount of anxiety can even improve performance and focus. But when the worry and anxiety becomes excessive, it may be a sign of an anxiety disorder. Anxiety can get much worse if it goes untreated. The great news is that the sooner you get help for managing anxiety, the easier it is to obtain relief. Anxiety can be the result of negative events or trauma, but it can also develop without incident or warning.

We all know what anxiety feels like…

And sometimes it can even be helpful in pursuing our goals and alerting us to the inevitable dangers of human living. But when our natural human inclination for anxiety becomes a problem that keeps us from living the life we desire, it’s important to seek help.

Anxiety is a problem if…

  • You worry excessively about work, family, money, health, school performance, or any other aspect of life
  • You avoid situations or people out of fear of experiencing anxiety, panic, embarrassment, or failing to meet expectations
  • You seek constant reassurance in relationships
  • You find it difficult to complete tasks because of perfectionism or procrastination
  • You struggle with specific phobias

Our team of experienced and licensed professionals are ready to help you move past your anxiety today. We accept many insurance plans and offer evening and weekend appointments for your convenience.  Contact us to make an appointment.
