Anxiety Therapy – Understanding the Signs & Symptoms

Anxiety affects 40-million adults in the U.S. and is the most common mental health issue facing Americans.

We use cognitive-behavioral therapy for anxiety to help clients look at negative thoughts and replace them with positive thoughts. Our anxiety therapy services provide help for people with anxiety disorders that are intense, excessive, and cause persistent worry and fear about everyday situations that may reach a peak panic level within minutes.

We use anxiety therapy services for generalized anxiety disorders, specific phobias, social anxiety disorders, separation anxiety disorders, panic disorders, and other specified or unspecified anxiety disorders.

We discuss these and other common anxiety signs and symptoms with the client before we begin anxiety therapy services:

  • Nervous, restless, or tense feelings
  • A sense of impending danger, panic, or doom
  • Hyperventilation, sweating, or trembling
  • Difficulty controlling worry
  • Trouble sleeping
  • An increased heart rate
  • An urge to avoid anything that triggers anxiety
  • Experiencing gastrointestinal problems
  • Inability to speak

What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Anxiety?

Cognitive-behavioral therapy for anxiety is a superior psychotherapeutic treatment used in treating anxiety disorders.

The cognitive part of the treatment helps people change thinking patterns that support their fears. The behavioral treatment techniques help change the way people react to anxiety-provoking circumstances.

Our certified therapists use cognitive-behavioral therapy for anxiety to help clients:

  • Learn about their emotional or mental health disorders
  • Learn how to recognize their circumstances
  • Change disturbing thought patterns that support their fears
  • Change the way they react to anxiety-provoking situations

Our clinical approaches seek to alleviate negative cognitions (or thoughts and beliefs) and maladaptive behaviors associated with mental disorders. It works. Cognitive-behavioral therapy for anxiety has been well-researched and supported by the National Institutes of Health.
