Are you experiencing heart palpitations not caused by heart problems? Do you have feelings of claustrophobia, fear, shortness of breath, dizziness and nausea that suddenly come upon you or are with you some of the time? These are symptoms of anxiety. Or you may have a low level of anxiety experienced as agitation, worry or tension almost constantly draining you.
Living with symptoms of anxiety on a regular basis can be frightening, embarrassing and debilitating. You may find, that over time, fear of having symptoms stops you from going places, and can make it hard for you to work, go to school or socialize.
There is no need to suffer. Treatment for anxiety can be very effective and you may find relief for the worst symptoms relatively quickly. There are several types of anxiety including:
Generalized Anxiety Disorder
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
I will work with you to assess what type of anxiety you are experiencing and how severe, and create a plan specifically for your needs. Sometimes medications play a role in treatment along with effective psychotherapy.
Together we will explore how your thoughts and beliefs are affecting how you are feeling, both at the emotional and physical levels. We will also identify and release traumatic experiences that may be at the root of your anxiety.
I will also teach you controlled breathing techniques, as well as relaxation and visualization processes that you can use to help yourself relax and take control over your anxiety. Exercising and eating properly can also help reduce your anxiety.
It’s time to give yourself the gift of feeling better. I warmly invite you to call me at 310-358-2910 today and set up a free phone consultation.
