When I work with clients on anxiety treatment, I know that anxiety can sometimes feel like it has a total hold on their lives. While it is expected that all of us will have moments of anxiety at some point during our lifetime, sometimes anxiety can become all-consuming and leaves us feeling completely out of control. Some symptoms or signs that you may be struggling with an anxiety disorder are:
- panic attacks
- obsessive thoughts
- ritualistic behaviors
- severe phobias
- hair pulling (eyelashes, head hair, eyebrows, pubic hair)
- skin picking
- uncontrollable worry or fear
Anxiety Treatment Approach
Anxiety disorders can affect all of us, from children, to teenagers, to adults. If left untreated, anxiety can worsen over time. I specialize in anxiety treatment for men, women, and kids of all different ages out of my Blackwood office, implementing Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) skills, mindfulness strategies, and relaxation techniques to help make anxiety more manageable. These different approaches help clients in a variety of ways by:
- challenging and reducing patterns and beliefs that lead to anxiety
- equipping clients with appropriate coping skills
- training the body to become more easily relaxed after high periods of stress
At the end of the day, my goal is to empower my patients and leave them with the sense that they are the ones in control of their anxiety.
