Sure, everyone experiences anxiety and stress in life, but sometimes it becomes so overwhelming that it begins to threaten our ability to function in daily life. We do not have to be bound by fear. Anxiety and stress treatment and counseling can help equip us with more effective coping strategies so that normal life stress does not become dis-stress. And if one has already reached the level of distress, counseling can help sort out which of our problems need creative solutions, and which ones simply need to be pushed off our plates.
