Why anxiety Therapy?
Your worry is affecting your work, relationships, social activities, and possibly even your family. This 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.
Did you know that anxiety affects 18.1% of adults in the United States every year? Many different things can cause anxiety, such as:
Major life events
Changes in life, work, family, location
However, usually, the cause of anxiety is more internal than external and may be due to your self-talk, your personal belief system, and your ability to identify and express feelings.
Anxiety Isn't Usually the Only Issue
Many people with anxiety disorders may also have depression, other anxiety disorders, or other mental health issues. Even when things calm down in your life, you may still be experiencing overwhelming thoughts, difficulty attending to specifics, and avoiding certain situations. Perhaps, you are a perfectionist or high-achiever? CBT can be a great option for you. Anxiety affects your whole body, your entire being as a person. It's just hard to live with symptoms of anxiety on a regular basis. The good news is, that 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 regarding anxiety and can provide you relief from your anxiety.

Coordination of Care:
Many people with anxiety also have a co-occurring medical issue, alcohol or drug abuse/addiction, or depression at the same time. Because it is difficult to treat these issues separately, our therapists treat the whole person at one time. At Catalyss Counseling, we work with other medical professionals in the community together as a treatment team. We use evidence-based treatments to assess your symptoms and identify the impact they are having on your life. In other words, our approach to anxiety treatment is to use counseling methods that really work. Through the course of therapy, you will gain coping skills to manage your anxiety and change your negative thoughts.
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. The end result of therapy for anxiety at Catalyss Counseling is relief from your anxiety.
