  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for Anxiety

    Is anxiety taking over your life?

    Are you constantly on edge, anxious, worried, and stressed?

    Do you feel like you cannot control the anxiety no matter how hard you try?

    Have you already tried therapy in the past but found it ineffective?

    Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is the most effective empirical research evidence-based form of treatment strategies and interventions to provide you relief from the anxiety and bring calmness, balance, and satisfaction to the life that you deserve.

    Anxiety may surround a particular life event or experience that has occurred in the past, where you may experience signs of post-traumatic stress disorder. When it comes to treating anxiety disorders, research shows that therapy is usually the most effective option. Anxiety therapy – as opposed to anxiety medication – treats more than just symptoms of the problem.

    Symptoms of Anxiety

    Nervousness, restlessness, or being tense

    Feelings of danger, panic, or dread

    Rapid breathing or hyperventilation

    Increased or heavy sweating

    Trembling or muscle twitching

    Weakness or lethargy

    Difficulty focusing or thinking clearly

    Insomnia & sleep disturbance

    Obsessions about certain ideas

    CBT provides evidenced-based research for anxiety disorders, including generalized anxiety disorder, anxiety panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

    CBT helps to identify and evaluate anxious thoughts, incorporate mindfulness and meditation, and implement behavioral experiments and exposure exercises. We can elicit and evaluate negative automatic intrusive thoughts, build and maintain a strong therapeutic relationship, and collaboratively develop objectives for your treatment goals.

    We can collaborate to uncover the underlying causes of your worries and fears, learn how to relax, look at situations in a new, less frightening way, and develop better coping mechanisms and problem-solving skills.
