Fear and Anxiety Therapy
Fear and anxiety often have an impact on our professional and personal lives. The feeling of constantly fighting to regain control and strength can often lead to overwhelming feelings of anxiety and fear, which often the people around us don’t understand the magnitude of. While antidepressants are the most commonly used treatment for social anxiety disorder, new research suggests that talk therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) are more effective and, unlike medication, can have lasting effects long after treatment has stopped.
In treating your fear and anxiety issues, we will work together to identify the negative thought patterns and replace them with more effective and positive ones. Talk therapy can help you do many things, including:
- Understanding your illness
- Defining and reaching wellness goals
- Overcoming fears or insecurities
- Coping with stress
- Making sense of past traumatic experiences
- Developing a plan for coping with crises
- Understanding why things bother you and what you can do about them
I will offer you a calm and safe place as you navigate your way through the bumpy roads of fear and anxiety. Together we will help you create ways of coping with fear and anxiety which are tailored to your unique needs. We will work together to help you learn about your strengths and potentials which have been forgotten about as a result of facing fear and anxiety.
