Anxiety Counseling

Anxiety Disorders At A Glance

What is an anxiety disorder? Everyone experiences occasional jitters. But, did you know that the National Alliance on Mental Illness identifies anxiety as the leading cause of mental illness in the United States? A surprising number of Americans—40 million to be exact—have some form of anxiety disorder. The good news is you’re not alone!

Who needs Anxiety Counseling?

You May Need Anxiety Counseling If You Are Experiencing These Symptoms Of Anxiety Disorder:

  • Unshakable, unfocused, or intrusive sensations of worry or dread
  • Feeling edgy or restless, or as though your skin is crawling
  • Difficulty concentrating, reaching decisions,
  • Racing thoughts
  • Insomnia or excessive fatigue
  • Irritability – mild annoyances that would normally only grate on your nerves cause you to snap at loved ones, acquaintances, or even strangers
  • Panic attacks: Overwhelming anxiety may cause you to break into a sweat. Your heart rate may soar. You might feel lightheaded, on the verge of hyperventilating or feel your throat is swelling shut.
  • Medical complaints (stomach aches, headaches, cardiac symptoms) without an identifiable cause.
  • Muscle tension – stress hormone release causes the muscles to tighten in preparation for flight or fight
  • The development of compulsive behaviors (counting, obsessively checking to make sure that doors are locked, washing and rewashing your hands), which can have an instantaneous, but short-lived, soothing effect
