Anxiety Counseling For Adults

Being preoccupied with worries and anxiety leaves you feeling exhausted, tense, and uneasy. Juggling everyday responsibilities and trying to keep it all together, you find yourself in a cycle of anxiety that can wind you into knots.

Sometimes the worries are manageable and other times they are persistent, especially when stress arises, making things worse. Does this sound familiar?

Dealing with overwhelm and stress may be familiar but it does not have to rule your day.

Feeling more relaxed, settled and grounded is important to overall wellbeing. But, it can feel very strange if you are a driven person used to handling the many demands of life. You may manage school, work and family life despite the high pressure and even achieve pretty good results. As a result, you may begin to think that feeling anxious is par for the course.

In fact, not all anxiety leads to discomfort. But, if you are not feeling your best, are worrying in a way that makes you tired, stuck or constantly overthinking, you have come to the right place.

Social Anxiety

Many people with social anxiety experience intense fear and discomfort related to social interactions. Feeling embarrassed, fear of being judged, or criticized by others makes it very difficult to fully enjoy social moments. Nervousness to speak up in front of others, finding the right words to say and making friends are common concerns. Counseling can help to explore and understand the ways social anxiety is affecting your life. Therapy offers an opportunity to learn and practice new skills that you can directly apply in your life. Build confidence and reduce stress around socializing. Learn more about therapy for social anxiety.

Perfectionism

Not feeling good enough? Feeling like an imposter? Many people with perfectionism feel stuck in a battle of self-criticism and striving for perfection and self-improvement. Trying to meet high expectations of themselves or the imposed expectations of others can lead to stress. Fear of failure, indecisiveness, people-pleasing, and fear of negative evaluation are a few signs of perfectionism. Learning to set realistic goals and healthy boundaries and reducing shame can lead to a path of healing. Learn more about perfectionism therapy.
