Anxiety Treatment

You’ve been trying so hard to act like “everything is ok,” but the truth is that most days are a struggle.

You second-guess or doubt yourself all the time.

Some social situations make you very nervous. So, you just avoid them.

Often, you panic and your heart races, you start to sweat, and you can’t think straight.

Or you’ve had some panic attacks recently. You don’t feel capable, so you doubt yourself and your decisions. Sometimes, you find yourself acting irrationally or you come off angry or cross to your coworkers. You are avoiding import emails or phone calls for days or even weeks due to the tightness in your chest that they cause.

In conversation, you over analyze everything the other person does. And, you wonder what they are really thinking about you. You have found yourself backing out of more and more social situations at the last minute because they make you so nervous.

Then, the negative self-talk starts to begin telling you that “you are not good enough” do your job. Or, you’re “not smart enough” to do well in school. Maybe, you think you’re not “pretty enough” to date your crush. Your self-esteem continues to decrease. This, in turn, makes your anxiety worse. So, you’re negative cycle continues and you’re miserable.

My Approach to Counseling & Anxiety Treatment

man with a beard cope with stress and anxiety after going to anxiety treatment in bloomington, IL at bridge to hope counseling 61704I’ve been helping people with anxiety disorders for years. There are a lot of different treatments for anxiety and as an anxiety therapist I want to use the type of treatment that will be most effective for helping relieve your anxiety. Therefore, I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help you figure out what is triggering your anxiety and help you understand how your thoughts affect your behaviors. Then, I will teach you tools to cope with anxiety symptoms and create a healthier mindset. My hope is that anxiety counseling will give you the strength to laugh freely, relax fully, and calm yourself in the face of fear. I can show you how to worry less about your future and enjoy each day right now.

Facing your anxiety can feel scary and overwhelming, but, as a therapist, I am here to help support you.  You have probably been fighting against your anxiety, thinking about it constantly, checking in on it all the time, and never realized that you were feeding it instead of learning how to gain control of it. I will help put all the pieces together to build a concrete set of tools to use when you feel stressed, anxious, or worried. I will tailor my counseling approach to help you meet your goals for counseling. Ultimately, my goal is to give you hope for a calm tomorrow. I want you to live a happier, healthier life.
