Stress & Anxiety

Stress

In this day and age we have so many responsibilities between work, school, household chores, and raising children. While societal expectations and demands increase, it can be difficult to set our own boundaries. If you are struggling with time management, feeling overwhelmed, juggling personal, social, and work life, feeling exhausted and drained, or need help making time for self care, therapy can help you regain control. Whether your stress is related to life changes, such as a promotion at work, a new job or job loss, an upcoming wedding, the arrival of a new baby, divorce, or illness, all require the ability to manage your emotions and time so you can be productive and reach your potential.

 

Anxiety

Everyone has experienced anxiety in one form of another, whether diagnosable or not. Anxiety emcompasses a variety of issues including General Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), panic attacks, Agoraphobia, social anxiety, and other phobias. However, anxiety is not always a negative thing; it can motivate us to work harder and perform better (like studying for an exam or getting work done by a deadline), but it needs to be at a level that still allows you to be productive. If your anxiety becomes too overwhelming, you lose the ability to concentrate or function. Sometimes anxiety is triggered by a desire to guarantee the outcome of your future when you don’t actually have control over it. Whether you suffer from having knots in your stomach, hot flashes, shortness of breath due to panic or you often struggle with persistent worry, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and practicing mindfulness can help you learn how to manage your anxiety and stop worrying about what’s not in your control.
