“You can't always control what goes on outside. But you can always control what goes on inside.”

It’s one thing to feel butterflies in your stomach when you are trying something new but is it something completely different to feel keyed up and nervous all the time and to overthink every single thing, no matter how big or small it is.

Your thoughts sound something like this:

  • “If only I didn’t have to go to that conference next week. I totally hate talking to a bunch of strangers.”

  • “Why do I have to feel so anxious all the time?”

  • “I wonder what my spouse/friend/colleague thinks about me being such a worrywart.”

  • “Will I ever be able to look forward to things?”

  • And then there are the “what ifs”: What if I fail/succeed/make a mistake/fall on my face/have food stuck in my teeth/don’t have anything interesting to say...and so on.

Some typical symptoms of anxiety include:

  • Worry that can be hard to stop or control

  • Feeling anxious or keyed up or on edge much of the time

  • Tight muscles, often neck, shoulders, back, or teeth clenching

  • Irritability

  • Having a hard time falling asleep

  • Feeling tired all the time

  • Difficulty relaxing or being spontaneous

I help people who worry and feel anxious by teaching them how to recognize their worry thought patterns and to cope with difficult feelings more effectively. These tools as well as others, like deep breathing and relaxation skills, help you go to that big conference, worry less about failing, and talk to others with ease instead of fear.

It may feel like you’ve always been a worrier, but you do not have to spend the rest of your life as one, and I can help you get there. Call now to get started with treatment for anxiety.
