Anxiety is a Paradox
It frequently leads you to behaviors that block you from reaching the goal you most want. Therapy-land actually has a term for this, “avoidance behaviors.” And it is likely you do them all the time, but without conscious awareness of it. Add to that, constantly feeling anxious is not just unpleasant. It can be debilitating.
From panic attacks to social anxiety, stress causes physical changes in your body, carving deeply rutted neural pathways that can lead you to panic in less than 1/22 of a second. These reactions happen so quickly you are no longer aware of the thoughts that lead you there. They have become habit. And it just gets so difficult to unwind these feelings and emotions.
Living with anxiety is no way to live.
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 that “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.
