Anxiety is one of those therapy words that have made their way into our daily conversations. We talk about feeling anxious before a job interview, or we say driving in bad weather gave us an anxiety attack. In a way, it’s good that the frequent references to anxiety have somewhat destigmatized the condition, but the way we talk about anxiety may also lead people to think that it’s “normal” to feel anxious all the time. It’s not! You don’t need to have the same level of worry about picking out your entrée at a restaurant that you have about encountering a grizzly bear. It’s okay to be anxious, worried, cautious, or even fearful in certain situations. It’s not okay to give those feelings all the power in your life. At Silvering Lining Psych, our knowledgeable therapists partner with you to develop skills to manage anxiety and lead a more satisfying life. On this page, you can learn more about therapy for women who are managing anxiety, and you can always reach out to our team if you have questions.
Anxiety is a natural emotion. It’s actually one way the body keeps itself safe. By triggering an anxiety response, the brain tells the body to be more aware and take action to stay safe. This is a wonderful, innate human ability. However, at times, it can interfere greatly with our day to day activities. When anxiety starts to negatively impact your ability to live and enjoy your life fully, that is when we know we need to get help guiding us through to a calmer, better state.
During therapy sessions, you can partner with a skilled therapist who will help you develop strategies and skills to manage your anxiety. First and foremost, therapy is a safe, stress-free, worry-free space for you to explore the parts of your life that are causing anxiety and develop tools to confront and overcome anxiety. By developing these skills, the hope is that you can take that same sense of safety and stability out of our office and into your day-to-day life.
I’ve always been a worrier, but lately, I can’t seem to stop my constant worry thoughts
I feel like something is going to go wrong; I’m always looking for sources of danger
Sometimes, I can’t stop my anxious thinking, and I panic
My worries are overwhelming and during parts of the day really consume much of my thinking
I’m jumpy and easily startled
I have difficulty concentrating on anything else other than my anxiety or the potential for anxiety
I have physical symptoms such as my heart beats fast, I get sweaty, tremble, and sometimes even feel sick
I prefer to just stay home because dealing with potential issues that could arise is too stressful
I don’t feel confident in the workplace or my relationships because I’m always worrying that I’ve done something wrong or that I’m not good enough
