If you experience persistent, uncontrollable, or overwhelming anxiety that interferes with daily activities, you may have an anxiety disorder and anxiety counseling can help. The team at Lifeologie Counseling Oak Cliff can help you address your anxiety and learn to manage or overcome it altogether.
Anxiety disorders are real medical conditions – just as real and serious as physical disorders such as heart disease or diabetes. In fact, they are the most common and pervasive mental disorders in the United States with almost 40 million people affected each year.
Researchers are learning that anxiety disorders run in families and have a biological basis, much like allergies or diabetes. Anxiety disorders may develop from a complex set of risk factors, including genetics, brain chemistry, personality, and life events.
The first step is understanding if your anxiety is part of the everyday makeup of life or if it is something more extreme.
Worry about bills, landing a job, romantic breakup, embarrassment or self-consciousness in an uncomfortable social situation, sweating before a big test, business presentation, stage performance, fear of dangerous object, place or situation, difficulty sleeping or sadness after a traumatic event.
Constant unsubstantiated worry that causes distress and interferes with daily life, avoiding social situations for fear of being judged embarrassed or humiliated, out-of-the-blue panic attacks and preoccupation of having another one, irrational fear and avoidance of an object, situation, place that poses no threat of danger, recurring nightmares, flashbacks, or emotional numbing from a traumatic event that occurred several months or years before.
