Anxiety and Stress
"I just want to feel normal again"
"I am so exhausted from worrying"
"Anxiety" is a catch all phrase for a cluster of very different disorders. Anxiety around a specific event (e.g. crowds, social gatherings) or object (e.g. spiders, germs) is much different from anxiety that looms overhead at all times, as is the case in Generalized Anxiety Disorder. Each requires a different and unique approach, however, they often share a common symptomatic presentation. If you are feeling chronically keyed-up or on edge, startled easily, have difficulty concentrating, experiencing racing thoughts, uncontrollable and excessive worry or sleep disturbances you may be suffering from an anxiety disorder. Sometimes anxiety shows up as mysterious health conditions like gastrointestinal distress (e.g. IBS), heart arrhythmia's, chronic pain, or headaches. Whichever your unique experience, there is help. Anxiety can be properly treated and in a relatively short amount of time. People that are suffering from anxiety disorders often feel at their wits end and exhausted in managing this uphill battle. There is real help and hope in overcoming this life-limiting illness. I have experience in helping people of all ages overcome anxiety and get back to enjoying and living their lives.
