Counseling for Anxiety

Do you find yourself worrying about what others think about you?  Is the stress from your work and home life making you feel like you could explode?  You don’t have to continue to live this way.  The truth is that many people accept that their fate is to constantly endure stress with no reprieve.   There is a way to live your life more comfortably by learning how to make it through your day without feeling exhausted from worry.  With therapy and counseling, you can learn to take more chances in social situations, without fearing rejection.  The worry of what could happen tomorrow will lessen, and you will learn to feel more relaxed and content.  I can help you understand barriers that keep you from feeling relaxed and achieving what you want to achieve.

Like most people who experience what you are experiencing, you likely recognize how much worrying and stress impacts your life, but you do not know what to do about it.  You may know when your beliefs become irrational, but you don’t know how to intervene.  You might snap at those you care about, and regret having done so later that day.  Or maybe you lose sleep because you worry about the tasks that you have to complete the next day.  I can help you understand the thinking that leads you to react the way that you do, and give you some simple strategies so that you can react to these circumstances with less worry.

If you have dealt with anxiety for a long period of time, you may have felt as though there is no point in trying to make a change.  Although overcoming worry and stress can seem impossible, I believe in your ability to feel at ease and more relaxed.  Take the first step and call or e-mail me today to set up a consultation to see how therapy can help you with problems related to stress and anxiety.
