Is worry, fear, panic, or anxiousness interfering with your daily life?
However, when worries, anxiousness, fears, or panic become persistent, intense, or hard to manage, it can become overwhelming and interfere with your life.
Unmanageable worries, fears, and panic can negatively impact your thoughts, actions, and interactions with others. For instance, you may start avoiding certain situations. Or, you may notice feeling increased stress, tension, trouble focusing, poor sleep, or struggle to make decisions.
No matter your symptoms, excessive anxiety and worry can decrease your quality of life, making it hard to feel content, peaceful, or fully present in your life and relationships. It can impact your self-esteem and your overall well-being.
Fortunately, you can manage anxiety.

Your anxiety is a message system. It’s telling you something.
This therapeutic process often uncovers a deeply held belief or trauma.
