Almost everyone who seeks counseling suffers from some level of anxiety. It is the most common reason people call us to set up an appointment, the biggest hardship in their lives, and the thing keeping them from being their most authentic selves. Anxiety can make you feel alone, like everyone else has their lives together and you are the only one who is falling apart inside.
You are not alone. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, 40 million adults in the United States are affected by anxiety, making it THE MOST COMMON mental illness in America.
Everyone gets nervous or anxious from time to time. If your anxiety or panic is interfering with your relationships, responsibilities, or daily activities, it may be time to seek professional counseling.
Does any of this sound familiar?
- Do you have excessive worry more days than not about more than one event or activity, such as parenting, work performance, financials, etc?
- Do you find it difficult to control the excessive worry?
- Is the worry accompanied by feeling on edge, growing tired easily, difficulty concentrating or going blank, irritability, muscle tension, or problems with sleep?
- Does the worry cause problems with your job, your family, your friends, or any other area of your life?
If some or all of these apply to you, then you may be experiencing an anxiety disorder. The good news about anxiety is that it is incredibly treatable, and with help, most people experiencing anxiety see great improvement!
