Treatment for Anxiety
Anxiety can make you feel like you do not have any control over your life. You can find it hard to settle your thoughts down. Sometimes, anxiety seems to make thoughts in your mind play over and over, on repeat. Happy moments in life can be hard to enjoy. Often, you are waiting for the other shoe to drop.

We work with clients to overcome feeling overwhelmed by anxiety. Helping clients to laugh freely, relax fully to ground themselves in the face of fear. We can show you how to worry less and enjoy your life right now.
Anxiety is not your fault. Our experiences from the past or lessons from others teach us what is scary. You may feel upset about being anxious, and this leads to more feelings of worry. Learn more about the anxiety cycle.
Anxiety and Procrastination
Do you find specific tasks to be so unpleasant that you avoid doing them? Or maybe it is something straightforward that you have been putting off for a while. Whatever it is, this may have become a problem for you in your professional and personal life. Procrastination is the process of avoiding a situation or task that causes stress. When someone procrastinates, stress levels may lower; however, guilt begins to set in. Feelings of guilt, in turn, raises anxiety levels. Procrastination can be a vicious cycle to break. Nevertheless, we understand. We have the training to help you take the steps necessary to escape the trap of procrastination. Read our blog post on Overcoming Procrastination.
Panic Attacks sometimes can come out the blue, and for some people, they occur when they become overwhelmed. Panic may feel like you are dying or that you or your body is losing control. Panic attacks can show up with a few symptoms. For some people, panic attacks are powerful with so many signs, it can feel scary. If you have any combination of the following symptoms, anxiety treatment may be the help you need to make a change.
Panic symptoms include:
- out-of-body experience
- tingling/sensation of needles in your skin
- tightness in chest
- heart racing
- difficulty breathing
- hot flashes
Panic as a set of symptoms can occur along with a Depressive Disorder, Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, or another Anxiety Disorder. Panic symptoms can also be a separate diagnosis when accompanied by worry or fear of having panic attacks and making drastic changes in life to avoid panic symptoms. Therapists assess throughout treatment to help identify what type of panic may be problematic.
