Anxiety expresses itself through nervousness and self-doubt that may or may not be associated with real-life stressors. Nearly all people experience some level of anxiety periodically; however, anxiety can cripple you when feelings become unfocused, overwhelming, recurring, and not directly linked to stressful events. If anxiety interferes with your daily life, the support First Step Counseling Center can be helpful.
When anxiety takes over it can interfere with you relationships, sleeping patterns, eating habits, work, school, and more. Anxiety is one of the most common reasons people seek therapy, so you’re not alone. Effective therapy can drastically reduce or even eliminate symptoms associated with anxiety within a relatively short timeframe. Anxiety treatment allows you to resume regular activities and regain a sense of control.
At First Step Counseling Center rather than treating anxiety symptoms alone, as medications do, our sessions aim to identify and address the source of the anxiety. The self-reflective process of our anxiety treatment sessions helps you to learn self-soothing practices to use if anxiety flares up again.
