You’re diagnosed with an anxiety disorder when worry and fear persist or worsen over time and interfere with daily life. Feeling worried at times is completely normal. When you have an anxiety disorder, excessive worry doesn’t improve and is often disproportionate to the circumstances.
Anxiety might creep up in social events, or you may experience general anxiety. The providers at Fully Integrated Psychotherapy & Consultation offer support and treatment to help you overcome anxiety disorders.
Anxiety shows up differently in everyone. Symptoms of anxiety can include excessive worry, fear, and concern, even when there’s nothing clearly wrong.
Anxiety also causes physical symptoms, including:
Anxiety can lead to panic attacks that include symptoms like heart palpitations, heavy sweating, nausea, and breathlessness. People with an anxiety disorder also may develop chronic diarrhea, headaches, and systemic pain.
Anxiety increases your risk of other mental health concerns, such as:
It’s common for people with anxiety to withdraw from their friends and family. Anxiety can interfere with your work performance and relationships too.
Your provider customizes your anxiety treatment plan according to the severity of your symptoms and your triggers. They may use techniques to help you reframe your thoughts and manage your condition. These techniques might include:
CBT is a form of talk therapy that helps you identify unhelpful thinking patterns and reframe them in a more healthy manner.
Your therapist can help you become more mindful so you don’t have the time or interest in anxious, negative thoughts.
EMDR helps you understand your anxiety triggers and symptoms and how they may be connected to unprocessed memories. This treatment helps you reprocess old emotions and body sensations and focus on positive beliefs about yourself.
