Counseling for Anxiety

Counseling for Anxiety

Do you get anxious in social settings? Does it feel like you can’t relax or feel calm no matter how hard you try? Have you already tried meditation and positive self-talk but found it ineffective?

There is confusion between irritability and anxiety for some people.  Women of color are described as irritable, angry, or having a “bad attitude”, because of the way their anxiety and chronic stress shows up.

If this sounds like you, I’m confident I can help. You do not have to continue suffering with anxiety alone. My practice offers the most effective forms of treatment, to get the relief that you truly deserve.

When it comes to treating anxiety, research shows that therapy is usually the most effective option.

Addressing anxiety in therapy can help with these symptoms:

  • Insomnia or disturbed sleep
  • Nervousness, restlessness, or being tense
  • Feelings of danger, panic, or dread
  • Rapid breathing or hyperventilation
  • Increased or heavy sweating
  • Trembling or muscle twitching
  • Weakness or lethargy
  • Difficulty focusing or thinking clearly about anything other than the thing you’re worried about
  • Obsessions about certain ideas, a sign of obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Anxiety surrounding a particular life event or experience that has occurred in the past, a sign of post-traumatic stress disorder

Therapy can help to uncover the underlying causes of your worries and fears, help you learn to relax and help you view situations in a less frightening way. You will also get to develop better self-soothing, problem solving and coping skills.

If you struggle with anxiety, I invite you to contact me today for a free consultation.
