Treatment for Anxiety

    • Is your anxiety difficult to control?
    • Do you find yourself tense or irritable?
    • Do you find yourself worrying about what will happen?

Everyone worries at times. When anxiety happens too frequently, is difficult to stop or occurs when everything is going fine, you may benefit from counseling. Anxiety disorders can affect your thoughts by questioning your decisions, being preoccupied with fears about the future or relationships and it can also affect your body, causing tension, headaches, muscle aches, stomach aches and difficulty relaxing. Anxiety disorders are chronic and can impact your work, sleep and relationships. You’ve likely been working very hard to manage your anxiety, maybe you’ve been keeping yourself busy or using distractions to avoid your anxiety, maybe you avoid certain situations; or maybe it’s gotten so bad that you’ve been dealing with it by using alcohol or drugs. Therapy can help. You don’t need to suffer alone.

Is your teen demonstrating signs of anxiety? Is it impacting their schoolwork, self-esteem, friendships or relationships at home? If so, counseling can help to reduce the anxiety and increase their functioning. Your teen will be able to carry the skills they learn in therapy forward as they move out of the home or begin college. S/he will feel more confidence that they can handle the challenges of life but also be freed from the anxiety to enjoy the delights of life.
