Do you often find yourself anxious about everyday tasks or events?

Do your worries get in the way of your daily life and prevent you from doing what you need to do?

If this sounds like you, then anxiety counseling may be an excellent option for you.

Anxiety is a normal human emotion that everyone feels from time to time. However, when the feeling of anxiety becomes excessive it can cause undue stress and prevent you from living a full, happy and productive life.

Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the United States. There are tens of millions of people suffering from anxiety. And it affects 18 percent of the adult population. And anxiety is even more common with teenagers, with 25 percent of the population between the ages of 13 to 18 years old living with some type of anxiety disorder. 

Symptoms of anxiety can range from feeling nervous before an interview, to feeling worried about something like an upcoming presentation at work or even the thought of being late for an appointment.

And if these feelings are interfering with your day-to-day activities, anxiety therapy could make a massive difference to your life.

The most common anxiety disorder is generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). This type of anxiety is characterized by persistent and excessive worry about much of what’s encountered in day-to-day life.

Quite often, these worries and the feeling of unease and even dread are both largely baseless and difficult to control, even if there is no fundamental basis for them. 

It’s also possible for an individual with generalized anxiety to experience panic attacks at any time during the day or night, including while they are sleeping. 

Like anxiety, panic disorders can also worsen if not taken care of in a timely manner.

And if you feel like your worries could be getting out of hand and negatively affecting your life, it’s essential to consider counseling.

Like all anxiety disorders, panic disorder can be treated in my Scottsdale counseling center, or if you prefer, we can have online panic disorder counseling.

Fortunately, there are a number of effective treatment methods for panic disorder too.

Also, like panic disorders, anxiety and depression are often interlinked. So if you are experiencing depression, we can work on that too.

To lessen the impact of daily stresses that come up throughout the day. Therapy based on anxiety counseling teaches patients to understand their anxiety, identify the triggers, and improve their coping skills.

Anxiety counseling is best suited for those who have difficulty managing their feelings of worry about everyday life such as work, school, or relationships. Anxiety is a feeling of unease that can interfere with daily life, at times to the point of being crippling.  

It’s common to feel a little bit of anxiety before giving a speech or right before an interview. Still, for those who experience panic attacks at any time during the day and struggle with extreme worry daily, there are more than just feelings that may need to be addressed.

Anxiety can be treated in many different ways depending on an individual’s needs. 

Of all of the ways there are to deal with anxiety, I strongly believe that counseling is the best treatment for anxiety disorders.

As a LCSW who has chosen to specialize in helping people with anxiety, I have witnessed firsthand the dramatic impact it can have on someone’s life.

My preference for counseling for anxiety disorders is because it tackles the root causes of one’s problem rather than just suppressing it like some medications do.

Effective methods of anxiety therapy include cognitive behavioral therapy for anxiety and mindfulness therapy for anxiety.
