Therapy for Anxiety and Trauma
Do you get easily overwhelmed, struggle with anxiety, or feel haunted by your past?
Do you struggle with negative thoughts that can make it hard to concentrate and focus?
Do you struggle with a need to be perfect?
Do you use substances in order to numb out or feel good?
Do you often doubt your decisions?
Do you feel like your past is impacting your ability to move forward?
Do you have “trust issues?”
Do you often think that you don’t have it “that bad” or that others have it worse which keeps you from getting the support that you need?
THEN IT’S TIME TO
Therapy for trauma and generalized anxiety is not only a good thing but often critical for your overall mental and physical wellbeing.
You may even struggle to get a good night’s sleep because there is just so much to take care of and it is hard to just quiet the “noise.” Sometimes you get angry at yourself for caring so much. On the surface, it looks like you have it made: career goals, good job, seemingly good relationships… but internally you feel the heavy weight of fatigue and burn out. You may envy those friends that seem to have it all and get through each moment with ease (those happy insta posts don’t help!). It can feel really isolating.
You put a lot of pressure on yourself to “power” through these difficult emotions because you want to desperately prove that things are “good.” Or perhaps you come from a culture or family background that doesn’t encourage you to seek therapy. We are human and no one is immune to the hardships that get thrown our way. The body remembers, and it isn’t always easy to just “snap out of it” and let go of the traumas we’ve faced.
THERAPY CAN HELP.
Your experience is real to you, and that is what matters most.
Individual therapy is an opportunity to reflect, repair, and find new meaning in the upsetting things that have happened in your life.
You get to not only learn how to effectively cope with the difficult emotions that you experience but how to take note of all the good in your life. You will learn how to get into your body and out of your head in a way that is encouraging and healing.
