Worry is a normal reaction to everyday stress and traumatic life events. Some ways of coping will reduce your discomfort.

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

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Montgomery

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.

In anxiety and stress treatment, the first goal is to reduce your discomfort. Anxiety and Stress cause real physiological symptoms; a day of anxiety can result in feeling emotionally and physically exhausted. By addressing the events that trigger you, negative thoughts and reactive behaviors that are intertwined anxiety and stress, you can expect a quick reduction of symptoms while making pathways to new positive behaviors and reactions. Longer term, you'll learn to be aware of your triggers and stop anxiety before it starts; you'll work to achieve inner peace and reduce your stress with new self-care actions.

Anxiety is a term used for several disorders, each disorder has a different defining characteristic but overall they cause symptoms such as feeling nervous, edgy, fearful, or constant worrying. Anxiety can vary in its intensity also: ranging from feeling uneasy to losing sleep or spending hours worrying about something. Ask yourself the following questions: Do you feel constantly tense, worried, or on edge? Are you always asking yourself “what if”? Are you unusually exhausted by the end of your day? Does worry stop you from completing tasks at work, school, or with your family? Do you struggle with thoughts you know are irrational, but can’t stop or control them? Do you believe that ....

Like some caffeine, some anxiety can motivate people to meet deadlines or complete tasks. Also, as stress seems to be an integral part of our lives, people often say some stress is vital to keep us stimulated or successful. But what if the anxiety and stress you feel seems to be hurting not helping you? Maybe you can't fall asleep or you bite your nails? Perhaps you often interrupt others or get overwhelmed when starting a project? Certainly, medication is a possibility. However, talking with a psychologist is a necessity.

Anxiety Counselor

Althea Olson, LCSW

Psychotherapist, Author, Keynote Speaker

Within driving distance of Montgomery

Anxiety is an obstacle that keeps people from moving towards their goals and dreams. Anxiety hinders relationships, career opportunities, dreams, and keeps people from being successful. I believe in order to get through anxieties one must change their "yes but" language to "yes and" so that opportunities begin to present themselves. The biggest regrets in life are generally now what we have done, but what we didn't do. I believe it is never too late to do the next right thing. Using evidence based modalities of CBT, ACT, and DBT interventions, I can assist you in moving past the anxiety and back to the life you desire.

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.
