Anxiety Treatment in Colorado
Your worry is affecting your work, relationships, social activities, and possibly even your family. Your current stress level is the highest it’s ever been, and you’re unhappy. You’re not sure how to fix it, or even what needs to be fixed. You are overwhelmed, juggling many responsibilities at one time, and do not seem to have any time to focus on yourself. What you did in the past to manage everything does not seem to be working anymore. You feel powerless to direct what is happening in your life.
Do any of these anxiety symptoms describe you?
Excessive worry that you cannot control
Agitation or restlessness, feeling “keyed up”
Fatigue/more tired than normal
Difficulty going to sleep or staying asleep despite being tired
Trouble concentrating at work
More irritable mood with your loved ones
Avoidance of social situations
Phobias, or specific fears, about specific objects or situations
Anxiety can impact your life in ways that you never expected. It can be all-consuming, be triggered by something specific, or pop up at inopportune times. If you are experiencing anxiety, it is likely affecting others around you. Someone has noticed you are not "yourself": your partner/spouse, your boss or employees, or your family. You're being called “stressed out”, or “high-strung”. Anxiety can manifest in many ways and affect many people around us and can appear in different forms and at different intensity levels.
What Does Panic Feel Like?
Panic can feel like a vague sense of uneasiness. Or, a full-blown panic attack with heart palpitations, sweating, and other physical symptoms. You may even experience “anticipatory anxiety”. This happens when you become so worried about what is going to happen that your thoughts start racing. Finally, you go into “panic mode”, and run around trying to do everything while accomplishing nothing.
how to feel better with anxiety counseling:
Here are some of the transformations you can expect to see after doing anxiety therapy with us:
Understanding of the underlying causes of your worries and fears so you can prevent over-reacting to situations
A quieter mind and more peaceful outlook on life
Stress management techniques that actually work for you and your lifestyle
Sense of relaxation instead of constant tension throughout your body
Relief from knowing that you're not going "crazy" despite what your mind is telling you
Viewing worrisome social interactions in new, less scary ways
Developing healthy problem solving techniques so you are focusing on your own self-care and needs
The end result is better social and family relationships, less work-related stress, and more self-care. We know the therapy process can be difficult at times. But, we try to make it as easy on you as possible by identifying your needs, wants and goals to make lasting change in your life. By connecting this way, we help you make the changes in your life that you want to see.
Our Approach in Treating Anxiety:
Our experienced therapists understand that anxiety may come along with some other mental health issues, such as depression, trauma, substance abuse, or grief. Pregnant and postpartum women may also have anxiety issues. We know how to fully assess you and are thorough in learning exactly how anxiety is impacting your life, and how you want to change. We'll even coordinate with professionals within our practice or outside in the community to give you the best care and treatment possible.
If you are high-achieving or a perfectionist, CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) may be a great option for you. As you know, anxiety affects your entire body, not just your mind. That is why we treat your physical sensations of anxiety as well as your racing thoughts.
It's just hard to live with anxiety on a daily basis. The good news is, anxiety is very treatable. You can regain control over your life and reduce your anxious thoughts. The therapists at Catalyss Counseling can help make the change you want to see in your life and can provide you relief from your anxiety.
Treating anxiety through group counseling:
We love group counseling for anxiety treatment! While individual therapy for anxiety is often the more popular treatment, research shows that group therapy works just as well for treating anxiety. Here are some of the benefits of group counseling for anxiety:
You feel less alone in your struggles
Improvement in social skills and connecting with others
Opportunity to learn about yourself and how others experience you
Offers a safe place to practice for stressful real-life situations
Provides a built-in support system
More cost-effective than individual therapy
We offer several groups that are appropriate for anxiety treatment. To learn about all the groups that Catalyss Counseling offers, go to our Group Counseling webpage. In particular, depending on what your need is, we recommend our Meaningful Connections Group where you're together with other young adults who experience anxiety and/or depression. You'll learn a new anxiety-management skill each week and connect in a fulfilling way with others.
Anxiety is also addressed, along with a variety of other topics, in our online Men's Support Group and online Women's Support Group. These groups are appropriate for men and women who are seeking a positive support system as part of your anxiety treatment and recovery.
When you contact us, we'll go over the group counseling options for anxiety treatment as well as individual therapy options to create an anxiety treatment program that fits your needs!
