Do Your Thoughts, Feelings and Life Feel Unmanageable or Chaotic?
- Are your days filled with responsibilities, perhaps more than you feel like you can handle?
- Do you feel overwhelmed, as though you no longer have control over your life?
- Does a sense of unease and worry follow you throughout your day?
- Do you long for a sense of peace and want to feel comfortable with your place in the world?
If you are struggling with anxiety, you may fear that you will always feel a sense of chaos and stress. Perhaps you dedicate a great deal of energy to worrying about the future and anticipating the worst-case scenario, which makes you feel on-edge and depleted. Maybe you ruminate about the past and wonder if your choices have trapped you in a cycle of unhappiness.
You may have experienced symptoms of anxiety throughout your life. Or, perhaps you have faced a significant life transition, such as a move, career change or divorce. Maybe the death of a loved one has halted your life as you knew it and surrounded you with grief. You may have experienced a trauma that has made it difficult for you to feel at peace. Or, maybe you have struggled with a sense of existential depression or intense emotions that lead you to wonder about your capabilities and your role in the world. Regardless of the source or your pain and worry, you may feel exhausted, overwhelmed, and eager for relief.
Many Adults Struggle With Heightened Anxiety
Everyone experiences some level of anxiety. In many ways, anxiety is an important and useful tool to help keep you safe and on track. For example, it can prompt you to pay your mortgage on time so you have a place to live or help you remember to look both ways before crossing the street. However, when anxiety exceeds the level that is necessary to keep you safe and stable, it can limit your life.
If you struggle with anxiety, you may anticipate dangers that are not really there. You might hold yourself back from opportunities and experiences out of a fear that something could go wrong. Or, you may believe that you just can’t succeed and set up mental roadblocks for yourself. Anxiety can lead to circular fears and thoughts that can make it difficult to envision a positive way forward.
Anxiety can also prompt you to compare yourself negatively to others and wonder why you can’t get it together the way everyone else seems to. You might feel isolated and disconnected, which only heightens your experience of fear and worry. Your life experience is unique, but your anxiety is shared with millions. There are ways to free yourself from the cycle of dread and unease. With help, you can stop feeling held back and move toward long-term relief.
Anxiety Treatment Can Help You Move Through Life With Greater Ease
For nearly 20 years, I have helped individuals struggling with anxiety embrace a different way of moving through their lives. To truly make a positive change in your life, we have to to break out of old patterns. If you are willing to explore your inner life, anxiety treatment can help experience a profound transition in the way you approach your worries, challenges and goals.
My approach to anxiety treatment combines talk therapy with the Hakomi method. The Hakomi method is a highly effective, body-centered approach that focuses on mindfulness. It can help you get to the core of your issues by bringing your awareness to your present experiences. Although this sounds rather simple, this method can have a profound ability to release old, unwanted patterns of thinking and being.
Through anxiety treatment, you can transform your anxiety into a deeper way of knowing yourself and your world. You can learn effective ways to manage anxiety triggers while becoming better equipped to manage intense emotions and stop circular thinking that stands in your way. If you are willing to sit with your anxiety and examine it, you can uncover deep knowing that you already possess and move toward relief, satisfaction and fulfillment in your life. In addition, I have advanced certification in Accelerated Resolution Therapy (A.R.T.). This approach is evidence based and can bring deep and lasting change in a very short time.
Anxiety treatment is an important investment in your immediate and long-term well-being. Consider how much anxiety has cost you in sleepless nights, chaotic days and lost opportunities. While therapy does require time and determination, it can also profoundly alter the way you interact with the world, allowing you to feel a greater sense of freedom and optimism for your future.
