Help for Anxiety and Panic

Anxiety can be debilitating if left untreated. Worries, tension, anxiety, and panic all have a way of narrowing our lives and limiting the kinds of activities we engage in. Some people experience anxiety in a highly physical way: always feeling on edge and never able to relax or experience ease.

 

Others notice that they spend their lives caught up in the narratives of their minds - stuck in the ruminations of the past or the worries of the future, and rarely living their lives in the present moment.

Anxiety can be different for everyone!

Perhaps, your anxiety centers around a particular situation, something that has happened or will happen. Your anxiety may also come out at particular times, such as the anxiety many people experience in relation to social settings or specific people, or racing thoughts and unending worries that show up any time you try to relax (i.e. bedtime!). Or, maybe what you notice appears unexplainable to you; simple physical feelings of anxiety without any particular associated concerns or worries, as is often the case with panic attacks. However you experience anxiety and panic, we can help.

How we can help

Typically, this work will begin with an initial intake session where you will be able to provide your therapist with both a clear picture of the ways anxiety has been limiting your life and your hopes for our work together. Within this first session, our therapists will work to provide you with tools that you can put to use right away, so that you leave your first session with practical strategies to help you start moving forward.
