Do you often feel unsettled, worried, or anxious? Stressed-out or overwhelmed by your day? Or even a sense of unexplainable panic? Anxiety may impact your ability to go about your day, get work done, and even affects relationships. You may frequently worry about what other people think and you may find it difficult to have genuine or authentic conversations with others due to worry of judgement or dismissal. You may feel that you have to be perfect in order to be accepted by others.
Anxiety can be a frustrating and exhausting experience. Anxiety is such a powerful problem that it can create a physical reaction. If you have anxiety, you already know what I am talking about as you have left work events or social gatherings with sweaty palms, increased heart rate, dry mouth, and racing thoughts. You may have thought to yourself, “Did I say something stupid?” “I hope no one noticed!” “I should have just stay home.” You may have felt sick to your stomach and raced home to find the comfort of your couch.
What would it be like to feel calm, relax and in charge of your life? To go to social gatherings or work events without feeling nervous or anxious? What would it be like to accept, and even appreciate your flaws? To be authentically you without worry of judgement or shame?
You may have tried some medications or self-help books in the past, but it has only helped to some degree. You still have not been able to get a handle on how to get rid of the anxiety and live a truly genuine life. I want you to know there is effective help available. Psychotherapy methods can reduce anxiety and help you start living more authentically. You may have even tried therapy in the past, but it just hasn’t solved the problem. At Center for Mental Health and Wellness, I work with clients to develop an anxiety reduction therapy plan that actually works. I use a non-judgmental stance paired with evidence-based techniques to create a well-rounded therapeutic approach. If you need help getting rid of anxiety, schedule an appointment with me.
