You wonder what happened to the former you. The version that pushed past any fears and just got things done already.
You don’t feel like leaving your house anymore if you can help it. And that’s not like you. You feel embarrassed to tell your friends or family what’s going on. Or maybe you have told them, and they tell you to “Just stop worrying so much.” Maybe they’re even getting annoyed with you. Either way, you feel isolated and unsure about how all this anxiety is going to affect your life in the future.
If you really think about it, you realize that you may have always been a little on the anxious side, even as a kid. But lately, you notice that it’s getting worse. You can’t turn your worries off as easily as you used to. You worry about interacting with others because they might think that you’re “weird.” You’re consumed with “What if?” scenarios, none of which end up with a happy ending. You’re not sleeping very well anymore either and that takes a toll on you too.
You just want some peace of mind and to start to feel like yourself again but have no idea how to get back to that place.
Here’s how Integrity Psychological Services Helps Adults with Anxiety:
We’re experts in treating anxiety. Whether you’re having problems with taming worries, are having physical signs of anxiety like your heart pounding/shortness of breath/dizziness, have an intense fear of certain things like driving on highways or flying, find yourself avoiding people or situations, or are doing certain behaviors like counting, washing, over-checking or cleaning that may be taking away from your quality of life, we can help.
Integrity Psychological Services, P.C. specializes in the use of evidence-backed counseling solutions for anxiety like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Positive Psychology, Exposure with Response Prevention and Eye Movement Desensitization and Re-processing (EMDR,) which are all well-researched and have been shown to be highly effective in the treatment of all types of anxiety, even without medication. We target the symptoms of Panic disorder, Social anxiety, OCD, Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Phobias with competence and compassion.
We’re a caring, friendly, and non-judgy group of counselors, psychologists, and therapists. No matter how ‘out there’ you think your fears, worries or behavior might be, you can 100% trust that we’re not going to think that you’re crazy. In fact, we’ll probably explain that whatever you’re experiencing is actually pretty common for people with your particular type(s) of anxiety.
We’ll also educate you about the nature of the anxious brain and why it does what it does, so you have better understanding of what’s going on. We teach you how to be your own therapist while you’ re out in the day to day world so that you feel well-prepared to manage anxiety in your daily life whenever it rears its head.
Anxiety is the most common and most treatable mental health issue! Over 40 million people in the United States struggle with anxiety. That’s nearly 1 in every 5 people! There is no need to continue to be miserable or to feel alone with your struggle. Our highly trained and sensitive therapists will work actively with you to provide you with the tools that you need to get back into the driver’s seat of your life.
Most of our clients report a significant relief of symptoms and improvement within just one to three sessions (but a complete course of treatment is generally between 6 to 12 sessions.)
Call us today or send us an email so that our Client Services Coordinator (and expert at client-therapist matching,) can connect you with the right therapist for managing your anxiety!
