How do I get anxiety?
Call Some people have a family history of anxiety, noticing that they respond similarly to their parents or siblings in certain situations. You may also have experienced a stressful situation recently that leads you to feel worried it will happen again (i.e., failed test, job layoff, bullying). Otherwise, there is a possibility that you may have a hormonal imbalance that can increase anxiety.
How can I get rid of it?!
Everyone experiences it at one time or another. Anxiety is completely natural. However, higher levels of worries and physical signs can be resolved by a combination or one or more of the following: mental health therapy, holistic treatments and medication management.
How does therapy help?
Therapy can help you to become more aware of the things that bring on anxiety. It can be difficult to feel in control of the feeling when you aren’t familiar with what brings it on. Once you are aware of those situations that bring on anxiety, you and your therapist can work together on different ways to be more in control during those moments.
Frequently Asked Questions
Learn How it Works!
I’M NERVOUS ABOUT STARTING THERAPY. IS THAT NORMAL?
Therapy can be vulnerable and new, so it’s natural to be nervous. It can be scary to think of opening up or crying in front of someone new, perhaps fearing that it will be awkward and uncomfortable. The fear around that can feel overwhelming. Getting the counseling we need can be challenging. And although it’s normal to be nervous, that doesn’t make it feel great. It takes courage to continue getting the help you need.
Therapy is a space where you can be yourself and feel safe from judgment, including feeling nervous. We’re committed to finding a way to care for your nervousness and ensure sessions are as comfortable as possible.
We’re here if you want to talk about it during a free phone consultation.
HOW DO I KNOW IF MY THERAPIST IS THE RIGHT ONE FOR ME?
Take your time to read through this website. If you sense that we may be a good fit based on what you are reading, you can call us.
During a free phone consultation, you can ask one of our therapists about how they have helped other people like you before, ask how they work as a therapist, or any other questions you may have that are specific-to-you. You’ll also be able to tell them what’s up, and you and one of our therapists can decide together how they can help.
It will usually take a couple of sessions to feel comfortable and develop a relationship. During the sessions, you’ll be able to understand how comfortable you feel in sessions. Our approach is not going to work for everyone. What’s most important is that you find someone who you feel is the right fit for you. We can explore that together.
