Anxiety Therapy for Parkland, FL
Serving all Residents of Florida
Truth be told, everyone experiences anxiety – or at least some level of it. However, not everyone experiences anxiety to the point where it is causing a clinically significant impairment or disruption in daily life.
Sometimes, a small amount of anxiety can actually be motivating – this means that in some situations, the nerves caused by anxiety can actually push people to do things that are difficult in order to achieve a certain goal (think: athletes). However, if you experience too much anxiety, it can be debilitating.
Some may have anxiety that is severe enough to where they might have a diagnosable anxiety disorder.
So, how do you know if you’re just anxious or if you have anxiety?
Ready to Thrive Again?
Well, first, let’s take a look at some* of the symptoms that anxiety can cause:
- Excessive sweating
- Difficulty concentrating
- Excessive worry or fear
- Feelings of danger or panic
- Feelings of impending doom or dread
- Heart palpitations
- Trembling or muscle twitching
- Shaky breathing
- Fear of losing control or “going crazy”
- Fear of dying
[*Please note that this is not an exhaustive list. If you are unsure of whether something you are experiencing is a symptom of anxiety, contact me and I will help to clarify.]
Now, many people experience the above symptoms at times, as they are normal (and common) reactions to stress; however, if these symptoms feel bigger than (or out of proportion to) the event that is causing stress, this might be something to look into. If you experience any of the above symptoms chronically (frequently) and you do not feel as though you know how to healthily cope with these symptoms, you may benefit from cognitive behavioral therapy for anxiety.
If you feel that you have anxiety, you may benefit from therapy, or counseling. This can reduce the stress of leaving the comfort of your home, and you won’t have to feel overwhelmed. If going somewhere new is something that causes you a great deal of stress, Invigorate Counseling provides you with a safe, comfortable space to receive treatment wherever you feel most comfortable, so that you can address these symptoms and learn how to best cope with them.
