Anxiety Therapy Can Help You Live With More Ease

Has Anxiety taken over your life?

Do you feel overwhelmed by your anxious thoughts?

Do you feel alone and like your mind loops with negative, anxious thoughts?

It may be hard to be present with other people or to shut your mind off when trying to fall asleep. This can cause you to feel disconnected and trapped.

You may feel others' emotions and negative energy around you so intensely that it’s hard to separate yourself from them and you may start isolating yourself even though you feel lonely.

Types of Anxiety:

Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is characterized by excessive and persistent worry about everyday events and activities. You may constantly anticipate negative outcomes, even in situations that others may perceive as routine or harmless.

Social Anxiety Disorder is an intense fear and avoidance of social situations due to a fear of being judged, embarrassed, or humiliated. It can significantly impact your ability to interact with others, pursue personal goals, and enjoy social activities.

Panic Disorder involves sudden and recurrent panic attacks characterized by intense physical and psychological symptoms such as heart palpitations, shortness of breath, and overwhelming fear. These attacks can be debilitating and lead to avoidance behaviors that limit your life.

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is characterized by intrusive thoughts and repetitive behaviors or mental rituals performed to alleviate anxiety. OCD can be distressing and consume a significant amount of your time and energy.

Our Highland Healing Center Therapists are here to help.

We provide personalized Therapy to help you understand and reduce your anxiety. Our therapists can help you learn calming techniques, uncover negative limiting beliefs, and develop a sense of peace even in the midst of life’s many challenges.

You Are Not Alone in Your Struggle With Anxiety

Anxiety Disorders affect more than 40 million American Adults according to the National Alliance on Mental Health (NAMI.org). Most people develop symptoms before age 21.

Anxiety may also be affecting your Physical Health

Once anxious stress accumulates in the body you may notice tension, stomach issues, headaches, difficulty concentrating and sleeping. The physical sensations of anxiety can be scary like you are on the verge of a panic attack.

Do you feel like others around you do not understand what you are going through?

You may have tried to confide in family and friends only to get responses that make you feel like something is wrong with you and cause you to feel even more alone.

In order to stop the overwhelm you may stop engaging in the activities you used to do and try to get relief with the internet, media outlets, music downloads and even nonstop internal criticism. This is your mind’s way of trying to help with the intense pain, emptiness and fear.

Our Highland Healing Center Therapists can help gently guide you in uncovering the pain and fears you might be suffering with.

Anxiety is a Human Condition Though you do not have to live with chronic Anxiety

Some anxiety, like looking into the future and having fear of what might happen– is part of being human and actually a survival instinct. There are also seemingly positive life transitions like a move, job change or graduating from college that can create anxiety. This makes perfect sense because going from a familiar situation to the unknown can be disruptive and cause anxiety to flare up.

Social Media can also exasperate anxiety as seeing images of others can feel like added stress to live up to societal pressures. It is hard to not make comparisons when seeing image after image of others looking seemingly happy and perfect.

How to distinguish between Chronic Anxiety and Normal Anxiety

Some anxiety is normal and actually can be a good thing. For instance, before giving a speech or engaging in a new activity or taking a test. This anxiety can raise your level of alertness and improve performance.

Chronic Anxiety is like living in a constant state of fight-or flight and takes a toll on your mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health.

Most are never taught how to feel safe when they are actually safe, usually because of living in early unsafe or chaotic households. Constantly scanning for danger can be exhausting and can lead to trying to cope by numbing or distracting in unhealthy ways in order to get some relief from this overwhelming anxiety.

Is Online Therapy as Effective as In-Person Therapy?

Often, people prefer In-Person Therapy to Online Therapy. This is because even though leaving your house and environment can feel overwhelming, connecting in person can lead to a regulating and rewarding relationship with your therapist.

Does Online Therapy Work and is it private?

Online Therapy can be an effective and convenient option. At our Baton Rouge Therapy Center, we believe privacy is the most important thing. It is important for you to be in a private space where you will not be heard or interrupted during an online session.

We use a HIPAA compliant platform for our online video sessions to protect your privacy.

Whether you choose anxiety therapy in the comfort of your home or you prefer to come into our Baton Rouge office, we will prioritize your safety and comfort.
