Are You Struggling To Handle Life’s Challenges Due To Anxiety?

You may feel overwhelmed, anxious, or scared. Have past experiences left you with a sense of uncertainty and unease in the present? Maybe guilt and shame create thoughts like “I’m not good enough” or “no one understands me,” and you can’t seem to shut them out.

You’re feeling exhausted, and the anxiety makes it hard to try new opportunities or activities. Finding motivation for the things that used to come easy feels overwhelming.  Despite your best efforts, you always seem to fall short and have difficulty connecting with those around you. Even your romantic relationships may be impacted by anxiety since you might feel too stressed out to connect and enjoy time together. 

If this all sounds familiar, please know that you are not alone. It’s possible to move beyond feeling lost and overwhelmed and find peace and a renewed sense of purpose in life.

Anxiety Can Make You Feel Like You Are Falling Apart

Have you noticed that the strategies you used to rely on to cope with your anxiety are no longer effective? Activities that once brought you joy now seem like a burden, and you might even find yourself turning to unhealthy behaviors such as overeating, undereating, sleeping too much, alcohol, drugs, or numbing activities such as excessive gaming, TV watching, or mindless scrolling to deal with your stress.

You feel like you can’t focus, and everything seems to be slipping out of control. Your constant state of exhaustion and feeling overwhelmed are causing you to withdraw from social situations and loved ones. 

Is this the new normal for you? If so, it’s important to remember that life doesn’t have to stay that way. There is always hope, as anxiety is highly treatable and does not have to affect your life so deeply.

Have you considered anxiety therapy?

It can help you regain control of your life, reduce your need to engage in unhealthy habits and experience peace of mind.

Anxiety Is At An All-Time High In Our World Today

In today’s society, more and more people are struggling with anxiety and negative thoughts about themselves. The uncertainty of our world often leaves us questioning our abilities as parents, partners, and individuals. Additionally, the recent pandemic has shown us that things can change in the blink of an eye, and this realization has left many of us feeling vulnerable and anxious. The constant use of technology has also contributed to feelings of isolation and disconnection, exacerbating the problem.

Many of us feel pressure to earn the approval of others, and often, we place too much pressure on ourselves to achieve perfection in all aspects of our lives. The constant striving for perfection can be exhausting and unsustainable, leading to feelings of inadequacy and eventual burnout. Unfortunately, many of us have been taught that failure is not an option. This mindset can be detrimental to our mental health.

What’s more, some of us have experienced neglect or trauma in the past. If we haven’t taken the time to heal from these experiences, they can lead to anxiety later in life. Acknowledging and addressing these underlying issues is critical to moving forward and leading a healthier, happier life.



Anxiety Therapy Can Help You View Yourself In A More Positive And Empowering Light

At Secure Intimacy Marriage & Family Counseling, our therapists are here to help you overcome your anxiety and improve your relationships. Our experienced anxiety counselors will analyze your life experiences and examine how childhood trauma may be linked to your current struggles.

By understanding the relational and emotional wounds you carry into the present, we can make sense of why you behave in specific ways in your relationships today. We will also work on identifying and changing negative core beliefs, setting healthy boundaries, and processing and healing emotional pain. Our goal is to help you determine what you lack in your life and guide you toward achieving your desires.

Together, we will find a treatment that will help you reduce the effects of your anxiety, strengthen your relationships, improve your self-esteem, and reframe your perspective on life. Additionally, we’ll teach you communication skills to effectively express your needs, overcome emotionally avoidant behaviors, and become more in tune with your emotions. 

Anxiety Treatment Options

Our attachment style often shapes our perspective of the world, and our anxiety therapists believe that the human need for connection and belonging is a healthy desire that can sometimes lead to unhealthy behaviors. That’s why we take a relationship-oriented approach to therapy, looking at how anxiety impacts your connections with others and vice versa.

Some of the main anxiety treatments we draw from include:

    • Emotionally-Focused Individual Therapy (EFT): Understanding your attachment style, healing past wounds, exploring your relationship history, and approaching your anxiety with a different mindset can help you gain a better understanding of yourself.
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): identifying and challenging negative thought patterns and replacing them with healthier, more realistic ones is an effective treatment for anxiety. This approach teaches practical skills for managing anxious thoughts and behaviors, leading to improved mental health.
  • Lifespan Integration Therapy: This approach examines your lifespan and generates a visual timeline of memories, helping you heal and gain a fresh perspective on lifelong patterns resulting from past trauma or neglect.
  • Brainspotting: Brainspotting is a powerful therapeutic technique that taps into the brain’s natural healing capabilities, effectively addressing anxiety by accessing and processing unprocessed trauma through specific points in the visual field. This technique promotes deep emotional and psychological healing, significantly reducing anxiety symptoms.
  • Mindfulness: The goal of mindfulness is to help you be present in the moment and get in touch with your emotions, allowing you to live a more centered and grounded life. 

We understand that navigating tough situations or addressing issues that weigh on your mind can be challenging. That’s why we are here to help you find the peace you deserve, live with ease, and eliminate the intrusive thoughts holding you back. With our support, you can strengthen your relationships, feel less stress, sleep better, and ultimately live a calmer life.

You May Be Interested In Anxiety Therapy But Have Some Questions… 

Will talking about my anxiety in therapy make it worse?

Our clients often express a sense of relief after finding a safe space where they can articulate their feelings and concerns. They no longer have to struggle alone as they have a trusted support system to share their thoughts. Many of our clients find that simply talking through their issues is a great stress reliever.

How much will anxiety therapy cost?

Our diverse team of interns, associates, and fully licensed therapists provides a wide range of options to ensure you receive the best care at an affordable cost. Our counseling sessions range in price from $75-$185, making them an affordable option that keeps your records confidential and free from insurance company access. 

This approach not only protects your future prospects, such as life insurance applications or job screenings but also ensures that you won’t face limitations on the type of therapy or session lengths imposed by insurance providers. However, suppose you’d like to use your insurance. In that case, we are happy to provide a super bill you can submit to your insurance provider for possible reimbursement.

I’m afraid that I will be judged or misunderstood.

At Secure Intimacy Marriage & Family Counseling, we approach you with empathy and understanding, meeting you exactly where you’re at before guiding you toward where you want to be. We create a secure, non-judgmental environment that allows you to heal and find solace. Our therapists are compassionate and supportive mental health experts who will help you see challenges as opportunities for growth and progress.
