Anxiety Treatment

Anxiety can be defined as the intense emotional response to a perceived threat. Unfortunately, anxiety can make your day-to-day life really difficult. It can impact your ability to work, learn, and even enjoy the things you used to love.

We all experience anxiety at different times in our lives. Stress and worry are not unhealthy or unhelpful. In fact, it is our body’s way of protecting us from danger. But, getting stuck in a vicious anxiety cycle is where things become unhealthy and possibly dangerous. There is a difference between experiencing natural anxiety and having an anxiety disorder. The hallmark of an anxiety disorder is that it causes significant distress and keeps you from living the life you want to live.

Symptoms of Anxiety:

There are many symptoms of anxiety. And, it’s important to note that no two people experience it in the same way. However, if you’re experiencing some of the symptoms below, it may be a good idea to speak with your therapist or your physician about anxiety treatment.

Our Approach to Anxiety Treatment:

At Foundry Counseling, our therapists take the time to understand your life holistically. This means we want to learn about how you are experiencing anxiety. It is really important that we determine what is causing the stress and worry you are experiencing. To do this we use various tools and techniques to learn more about you and your symptoms. This data is what informs you and your therapist in the best course of treating your anxiety. When it comes to treating anxiety disorders, research shows that therapy is usually the most effective option. That’s because anxiety therapy – as opposed to anxiety medication – treats more than just symptoms of the problem.

The above symptoms of anxiety demonstrate how anxiety is not just a physical response to a threat, but a cognitive response as well. So, during anxiety treatment, we aim at not just understanding and treating the cause of anxiety, but providing you with tools to use in times of future distress. This will help you make decisions based on what you have control over and ultimately decrease the intensity of anxiety surrounding aspects of your life that you are not able to control. A common therapeutic treatment to help you manage your anxiety is Dialectical Behavior Therapy or commonly referred to as DBT. These skills provide you practical ways of managing your experience in a healthy and effective manner.
