Have you missed out on opportunities because anxiety holds you back?
Tired of having to expend tons of energy hiding your anxious feelings?
Therapy can help.
You find yourself thinking ten steps ahead all the time. This quality can make you great at your job, but that can be unhelpful in your personal life. Because the truth is, you’re not just thinking and planning. You’re running through a dozen “what if” scenarios. And, you’re always imagining the worst. It’s hard always living with the threat of dire outcomes circling around your head.
You’ve lived with anxiety for so long, but you’re not sure how to stop worrying
By the time most people seek treatment for anxiety, they have been living with it for a long, long time. Usually so long that they find it hard to imagine living any other way.
Individuals with anxiety may experience the following symptoms:
- Irritability or mood changes
- Feelings of being restless
- Physical symptoms including headaches, stomach aches, muscle tension, light-headedness, or a racing heartbeat
- Insomnia and fatigue
- Trouble concentrating or getting distracted
- Worry about social settings or new experiences
Many Adults Struggle with Anxiety
According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, anxiety disorders are the most common mental health issue in the United States. Anxiety affects 40 million Americans over age 18. Furthermore, anxiety disorders can take several different shapes, including generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, PTSD, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and social phobia. People can develop an anxiety disorder at any time, even happy ones. For example, some people develop anxiety when graduating, getting a new job, or becoming a mom or parent.
Most Parents are Anxious. But, You’re so Anxious That it’s Hard to Enjoy Your Life and Your Child
If you’re a parent, you may already know what I’m talking about. To some degree, you’ve always been anxious. In fact, you may have been called “sensitive” or “high-strung.” Now that you find yourself responsible for the well-being of a small human being and your anxiety is worse. Those feelings of being ultimately responsible and also so out of control are heightened in a new and terrifying way. There’s a parenting analogy that says “parenting is like carrying your heart around in a paper bag.” And, it’s true. It can really feel like that. You are charged with protecting this very precious, irreplaceable part of you. Yet, you child is fragile and the world is full of scary things.
