Anxiety and stress can keep you locked up from living your life fully. Often anxiety can be biochemical in nature or can result from ongoing stress, lack of balance or unresolved issues. Christians can struggle with these issues and often feel quite guilty in knowing that they shouldn't worry or have fear. In therapy we will carefully assess these issues in a loving, grace based manner so that you can be free from debilitating anxiety and stress.

At times, we all think negatively; however, we are empowered because we can change the way we think in order to feel less anxiety and stress. In order to pursue optimal psychological health, one way to start is to begin to monitor our thinking regularly. The next step is to examine or question our thoughts and ask ourselves things like: Are our thoughts in proportion to what has happened? Is there any evidence that our beliefs are true? Cognitive behavioral therapy is an effective treatment approach for anxiety and stress especially if part of a comprehensive treatment plan.

Everyone experiences some stress and anxiety on a regular basis. These are problematic if incapacitating, excessive, severe, and associated with common situations. Panic attacks, overwhelming worry, and fear are signs that stress or anxiety is at an unhealthy level. If these impact you intensely most days, it is important to seek expert support immediately. Your anxiety might involve certain situations such as socializing or being separated from someone or something important. Anxiety can also be generalized and triggered by almost any issue or situation. If you have a child/teen experiencing high anxiety, seek help quickly to prevent potentially life-long symptoms.

Anxiety Counselor

Karen Bridwell, LCPC

Anxiety takes on a variety of different forms; therefore, Karen’s initial approach is to find out the underlying cause(s) of the anxiety. Anxiety disorders differ considerably, and as a result, therapy is tailored to the specific symptoms. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Exposure Therapy (ET) have been shown to be effective in treating individuals suffering from the various forms of anxiety, and these are Karen’s preferred methods of treatment. Worries and fears do not need to be constants in an individual’s life, so Karen and the client will work together to find ways of looking at situations differently, develop coping skills, and consider new ways of problem solving.

Anxiety and fear comes in many forms yet stems from living a life in the future not the present. Walking through what the fear might be helps the client become strong face what life in the present has in store for them. Focusing not he here and now eliminates many fears and anxieties. Understanding if brain chemistry is playing a significant role in the intense sometimes out of control emotions will need to be determined before effective psychotherapy can be utilized.
