Anxiety Treatment

Do you often find yourself feeling on edge, uptight, and restless?

Do you tend to overthink and second guess your decisions?

Does it feel like your fears and worries are constant and debilitating?

Anxiety can be so difficult to manage, and left unaddressed often becomes more and more powerful- to the point that it can feel as though it controls nearly every aspect of our lives! Maybe you’re so overwhelmed from battling your anxiety that you feel as though you have little left for what matters most to you.

Fear for ourselves and our loved ones, as well as worry about all the challenges our world is experiencing can become so painful and overwhelming that daily tasks like working and caring for ourselves and loved ones can be hard to focus on.

Anxious thoughts and feelings can be so overwhelming that it can be hard to focus on much else

Not only can our thoughts fill with worst case scenarios, we may feel on edge, have an upset stomach, or even have difficulty breathing. In other words, our mind (our thoughts) and our body (our physical sensations) are intricately linked- the more we think about worst case scenarios, the more our body reacts!

Anxiety comes in many forms and is a response to experiencing more stress than our nervous system can manage. Good stress is short-term and motivates us, focuses our energy, and helps us to act quickly.However, unhealthy stress wears us out, leaves us feeling uneasy, and impacts our emotional and physical well being.
