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.

Anxiety is the number 1 mental health issue for women and number 2 for men! For many, waking up in the middle of the night feeling anxious with our minds racing, is not uncommon. We live in an overstimulating society that encourages busyness to the detriment of ourselves! Learning to slow down and rest, assessing the activities of our lives, being able to say no and not feel guilty and learning ways to assess the social media and electronics use is part of the work we do in therapy. It's possible to have a life that is not anxiety-driven!

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.
