Providing online therapy to Manhattan and the state of New York
Anxiety is a normal response to life and its challenges. It can be a positive force that can motivate us to take care of our priorities. For some, however, anxiety can become our worst enemy that can express itself in many forms. Obsessive thoughts, uncontrollable worry, phobias, and panic attacks can interfere with our ability to take care of our responsibilities. It can cripple us to the point where we feel “shut down” or be so overwhelming that we are not able to think clearly and make good decisions.
Treatment can include a varied approach that can address symptoms of anxiety with positive coping skills and self-care. We can learn to integrate structure and positive habits to alleviate negative symptoms of anxiety and the destructive patterns that can develop as a result of chronic anxiety over time. Techniques such as mindfulness, deep breathing and thought exercises can help someone manage the symptoms of anxiety and gain a greater sense of control and peace.
Therapy can also look at the root of these negative feelings and thoughts. We can then look to uncover some of the deeper experiences and beliefs that may be contributing to these patterns and learn to challenge these deep seeded fallacies with more accurate perspective that serve you better.
