Move Beyond Your Anxiety

Take Control of Your Story

Gain insight and learn strategies to successfully deal with anxiety in a healthy way.

The word “Anxiety” can cover a lot of territory.

Some stress is just a natural part of life and in some cases can be motivating.
So how do you know when it’s time to get help through therapy?

Is Anxiety…

  • Getting in the way of your relationship or friendships?
  • Making it hard to leave the house?
  • Affecting your ability to do your job?

Or maybe you’ve noticed that…

  • You’ve stopped taking care of physical health.
  • Have started to dread social engagements.
  • You regularly feel overwhelmed, worried, fearful, restless, or on the edge.
  • Become easily irritated.
  • Have noticed physical symptoms like headaches, digestion problems, or fatigue.

If you’re so preoccupied with your anxious thoughts that you don’t feel like yourself anymore,
then that’s one of the signs to get help.

You can learn how to manage and balance feelings of anxiety, worries, and stress to build a better life based on what truly matters to you.

You don’t have to have a certain level of anxiety before you seek out help. You just have to want your life to be better than it is now.

Anxiety therapy at Saga Life Counseling helps those who feel their anxiety, stress, fears, or worries are more than they’d like them to be or feel these experiences are causing problems in their life.

You don’t have to struggle with feelings of anxiety on your own.

The anxiety therapy process varies from person to person depending on their situation, level of anxiety, and therapy goals. Some people can achieve the results they want in 6 to 12 sessions, while others may benefit from additional sessions or ongoing support. We work together to identify your specific therapy goals when you first start therapy. Additionally, I will help monitor your goals and help you determine when you feel you’ve achieved your goals.

It’s quite possible that anxiety may accompany other challenges you’re facing. You may also be experiencing:

Depression often occurs concurrently with anxiety. Depression can sometimes be seen as lamenting the past and feeling hopeless about the future, whereas anxiety can be seen as an intense preoccupation with the future.

Anger Management can be tied closely to anxiety. After all, anger happens because of excess tension in the body, so anxiety can sometimes be the underlying cause of anger. In other words, anger can be one of the coping skills and the outward expression of internal anxiety.

Trauma. Anxiety can also be a symptom of a deeper trauma. In trauma, there are unresolved, triggering memories that largely affect the nervous system. This results in a nervous system response that tells the brain there is an impending threat. Sometimes, treating the trauma is the way to relieve the anxiety.

Eating Disorders and Addiction can, also, often occur simultaneously with anxiety.
