Anxiety is becoming increasingly more common in our culture
According to the ADAA, anxiety affects about 19.1 percent of adults in the United States. About half of people also suffer from depression (or vice versa), though there are also instances where an individual may only experience one or the other.
When anxiety levels get too high, it can be debilitating, frustrating, and can even elicit panic attacks. Anxiety can sometimes affect not only your personal life, but also your performance at work or relationships with others, if not managed attentively.
Anxiety treatment can help you reclaim your life
It’s important to find ways to acknowledge your anxious thoughts or impulses without letting them control your actions or emotions. Being able to recognize your specific triggers and the underlying causes of these triggers is an important step to overcoming them.
In our sessions, we will address existing anxiety patterns and causes, and then develop new habits to supersede the existing habits. Being able to create a pattern and habit of overcoming anxiety can help reframe stressful, anxious situations in a way that allows you to create lasting change, peace, and long-term happiness.
Please call today so we can discuss how your anxieties or fears are upsetting you.
Do you have trouble finding the emotional strength to tackle your days?
Are you feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, unmotivated or sad? Do you have trouble finding the willpower to get out of bed or out of the house? Do you find yourself thinking negatively about yourself and others, or sabotaging relationships because you believe they’re doomed to fail? Have you stopped doing things you once enjoyed because you don’t enjoy them any more?
Living with depression can feel isolating, painful, and self-defeating. It can sometimes feel like “you just can’t win” or that you “keep getting kicked when you’re down.” Your sleeping and eating patterns may have changed, and you may feel lethargic and like you’re dragging yourself through life.
Depression is becoming more common among American adults
Depression affects approximately 14.8 million American adults and much of it goes untreated because individuals feel there isn’t any hope for them to overcome their emotions. Identifying underlying causes for negativity patterns and breaking those patterns to replace them with different habits and mindsets are often the first steps to creating a more positive outlook.
While depression is one of the most commonly diagnosed mental disorders, it is also one of the most commonly and successfully managed and treated.
A path toward a new, happier you
During our sessions, we will replace old patterns with new mindsets in order to make real and sustainable changes in your life. We will also work to identify the underlying causes of your emotions and explore practical and manageable actions to overcome them. We’ll work toward creating long-term solutions that allow you to become aware of and move beyond depressive episodes.
