Anxiety is a Paradox
It makes you behave the opposite of what you really want! Where would we be without our worries? They are the crutches you use to avoid your fears, because worry feels like you are doing something about the problem. And when worry works to get us to problem solve, that’s a good thing. But when it becomes just the noise in your head, it has nothing to offer you except crippling anxiety.
From panic attacks to social anxiety, stress sounds the alarm in your body in less than 1/22 of a second. That is your knotted stomach, your fast heartbeat, your clenched fists or clammy hands and your seeming inability to draw a full, deep breath. These reactions happen so quickly you are no longer able to figure out how you arrived at them in the first place. I want you to know you can learn to manage your anxiety!
Living with anxiety is no way to live. How would your life be different if you were in charge instead of the anxiety?
Anxiety comes in an alphabet soup of unwelcome flavors: Panic, PTSD, Social Anxiety, OCD, General Anxiety, and many specific phobias such as fear of elevators, heights, or vomiting. But you know what? The hardest thing to get your head around is those “worry thoughts” are not even real thoughts—they are just masquerading as such.
Through individualized anxiety therapy, I am here and ready to help you untangle those thoughts, and find your peace.
