ANXIETY AND STRESS COUNSELING
A bit of anxiety can be a part of everyday life. If the anxiety becomes persistent, excessive, and intense it becomes a problem that should be addressed by a professional therapist. You might find yourself worried and obsessed with thoughts that you cannot control. Dealing with restlessness, anxiety, or panic attacks can be debilitating. Untreated anxiety can cause insomnia and create issues with your sleep routine. Anxiety can also affect your body in different ways from shortness of breath, trembling, or even a pounding heart.
Some of these symptoms of anxiety and stress can be out of proportion to the circumstances you are confronting. They can be sporadic but left untreated can last for long periods of time. These symptoms can become so disturbing that you might limit certain activities in your life in an attempt to avoid emotional pain and discomfort.
Counseling can help reduce the impacts anxiety in your life. And if you are experiencing anxiety, you are not alone. Anxiety is one of the most common reasons people seek professional therapy, and anxiety is also one of the most treatable emotional issues. Anxiety therapy has proven to be extremely effective. You can learn to live a life free of the limitations that anxiety and fear create.
COUNSELING FOR TRAUMA AND PTSD
If you have ever experienced a trauma in your past that still disturbs you today, leaving you feeling out of control and helpless? You might be experiencing a form of anxiety called PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder). Psychological trauma is a particular type of stressor that overwhelms our ability to cope and prevents us from moving on in life. It can be caused by extremely intense one time moments like a robbery, car accident, or a history of neglect of abuse.
PTSD can bring about a wide range of symptoms: Phobias or panic attacks might stop you from doing the things you enjoy. You might be overwhelmed by obsessive thoughts or behaviors with the anxiety causing a hyper-vigilance state. Nightmares or sleep disturbances may leave you feeling exhausted. In some cases, you may find yourself spacing out—dissociating. Symptoms from anxiety may worsen when something in the current time somehow reminds you of a trauma you experienced in the past.
