Anxiety

Anxiety, at one time or another, is a fact of life. Many people experience feelings of anxiousness when facing stressful situations or important decisions. An Anxiety disorder, however, is a serious mental illness and can interrupt a person's ability to lead a normal life. For people with anxiety disorders, irrational worry and fear are overpowering and relentless. There are several different anxiety disorders, including generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and social phobia. The symptoms for these disorders vary, but all generally include some type of extreme, irrational fear and feelings of dread. Many people with an anxiety disorders also have physical symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, tension headaches, nausea, or muscle weakness. Anxiety disorders (characterized by at least six months of symptoms) are fairly common, affecting about 18% of the population. A mental health professional can be helpful in dealing with normal feelings of anxiety as well as specific anxiety disorders.

Guidance around anxiety is often oriented towards talking a person out of how they are feeling, which can work on the surface, but can leave the person alone with those same anxious thoughts. I take a different approach. By exploring and identifying the needs and concerns that anxiety is trying to address, we can find more adaptive ways to meet those needs an/or identify where anxiety has become a habitual pattern or reflexive response that is no longer useful to you.

"We have to FEEL it to HEAL it." I truly believe that one of the hardest things to do in life is really sit with our feelings. That's why addiction, which can take many forms besides just drugs and alcohol, can take such a strong grip over our lives.

Anxiety is an expression of a nervous system that expects something bad to happen. For our ancestors, this might have come up briefly when confronted by a predator, and then resolve when they escaped (or didn't). Today, we live with lots of sources of abstract threat (what do my peers think of me? am I doing well enough at work/school?) and more immediate threat (is it safe to go outside my home?). Without tools to help the nervous system calm back down, all these stressors add up quick.

Anxiety can feel like you're "losing it," "going crazy" and wondering if you'll ever feel grounded again. When it's intense you feel physically sick and your mind fixates on all of the worries in your world. While these experiences may lead to feeling alone, there is help and hope that you can feel better. With counseling, I have seen people have incredible breakthroughs in understanding, managing and changing their relationship with anxiety. Call me at 585.233.3308 for your free consultation!

Anxiety is a mental and physical response to stress that can become overwhelming and all consuming. Anxiety often shows up physically as rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath, chest and throat tension, or challenges feeling grounded or steady in one’s body. Mentally it can show up as spiraling and worst case scenario thought patterns, intrusive worries, or dread.

Anxiety is a general term for the several manifestations of experience that tend to produce nervousness, fear, apprehension, and worrying. These experiences can affect how we feel and behave, and they can manifest somatically as symptoms and patterns in the body. Responding to ourselves amidst these types of difficulties can be challenging. MIndful, compassionate awareness and support can help!

"Anxiety" was something I experienced as "normal" until I started to put it into words. It was through my own healing journey that I realized there are other ways to be, think, and feel -- imagine if you could "let your guard down," enjoy every moment, and embrace what's coming. Through a combination of cognitive, somatic, and story-based interventions, you can move towards a more balanced, less anxious, more enjoyable way of being in the world.

It is no wonder so many individuals suffer from anxiety. We live in a society that is constantly promoting fear. Together we will work to acknowledge and demystify the anxious mind, find stability and coping through grounding, behavioral and mindfulness exercises, and move towards valued action and balance.

Once we explore the beliefs that underlie anxiety as well as the ways it shows up in your body, we can begin to address the ways you are feeling limited and work to free yourself to experience relationships, work, and yourself more fully.

Experiencing anxiety feels like a relentless storm within—a mix of fear, uncertainty, and racing thoughts. I approach this by offering a safe haven and acknowledging these struggles with empathy. Together, we unravel triggers, build coping tools, and cultivate resilience, fostering a path toward inner calm and understanding.

Licensed Professional Counselor

Anxiety and worry can be a barometer to let us know that something is out of balance or wrong that we need to pay attention to, and this can include emotions that are blocked and not being tended to or listened to. I can assist you by seeking cause, gleaning wisdom, and finding relief and a feeling of greater ease.

Anxiety comes in many forms- keeping you up at night, stomach turning, emotions at the surface, needing to control your environment, feeling overwhelmed in the face of seemingly small challenges. I welcome your anxious energy into the room. I'm curious about the way it seeks to protect you and move you. I offer a contained space to let your anxiety finally be fully heard and calmed.

Anxiety can show up in a variety of ways: physically (eg. restlessness, fatigue), mentally (eg. racing thoughts, constant worry), and behaviorally (eg. avoiding places or activities, compulsions). Anxiety disorders manifest in characteristic ways that can often be addressed directly utilizing cognitive-behavioral methods of treatment without the need for medication.

Anxiety impacts so many of us. I'm endlessly curious about how this symptom manifests and why humans continue to be plagued by it. Through therapeutic interventions, we can make peace with anxiety and, in doing so, loosen its grip.

Anxiety can show up differently throughout our lives. Life transitions, age, stress, specific events can all impact it's intensity. Sometimes we don't immediately recognize the part our anxiety is playing in our life challenges. I believe that it is important to understand the shape and nature of your anxiety, and to learn specific techniques that support you in moving through it when it gets in your way, as well as to build compassion for yourself and your experience of anxiety.

Licensed Professional Counselor

MA, LPC

I incorporate a mindfulness-based approach to working with anxiety, working to help others change their relationship to their own anxious thoughts. Mindfulness can help us focus on the present moment rather than on feelings of worry or panic, meaning anxious thoughts become temporary, and are no longer viewed as reflections of reality.

Licensed Professional Counselor

MS, LPC

Anxiety is the mind's way of trying to achieve peace and safety using thoughts and intellect to exert control, find solutions, and fix what's "wrong." The problem with this is that very few things require solutions, or are actually "wrong" or truly within our control. Peace and safety, though, are innate human needs, so the journey is learning to step away from thinking and into a space of courageously being with feelings of fear and unrest, building an inner strength and wisdom that we trust.

Professional Counselor

MSW, CSWA

We like to think as personal lives and careers as separate, distinct realms, but we all have times in which work or other pressures invade daily well-being. It shows up as mild dread, overwhelm from exhaustion, anxiety from juggling deadlines and shifting responsibilities, unresolved conflicts that build into insidious distractions, or complicated decisions that nag at us as we navigate future steps. I offer a safe space to unpack and minimize sources of anxiety that interfere with well-being.
