Anxiety can make everyday tasks feel impossible as it often leaves us feeling paralyzed with physical symptoms. Anxiety is often about a threat or fear of something real or imagined.

Therapy may target the negative patterns and cycles that cause symptoms such as; self-care and prioritizing, life adjustments and changes, or in some cases, due to abuse or trauma.

We are not born with anxiety. Anxiety and stress are a learned way to cope with difficult situations, and they actually do not help the situation, they just make it worse. Medication treats the symptoms, and can be helpful, but it does not heal anything. I want to work with you to help discover what is the reason you react this way and others don't. We can explore how you learned this, and discover if there is indeed a better coping mechanism available to you.

Anxiety is a normal reaction to a potential threat, however we can become anxious about issues that are not life threatening. Anxiety becomes a problem when the symptoms disrupt our daily activities or cause conflicts in our relationships. Anxiety also impacts our physical bodies and these symptoms (headaches, shortness of breath, stomach aches, fatigue, etc…) are often overlooked as something a therapist can help resolve. During therapy you will gain a better understanding about anxiety, what makes you anxious, how your body communicates, and strategies to overcome these emotions.
