What is your go-to approach for anxiety therapy?

My preferred method for addressing anxiety involves a combination of client-centered therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). In client-centered therapy, I create a nonjudgmental space where clients can freely share their experiences. This approach helps them feel heard and understood. Following this, CBT techniques are used to help clients recognize and challenge any distorted beliefs that may be fueling their anxiety. This dual approach aims to promote self-awareness and empower clients to manage their anxiety more effectively.

What tools do you teach in anxiety therapy?

I guide clients in utilizing the CBT triangle to uncover the underlying beliefs fueling their anxiety. Once identified, clients can then focus on reframing and distancing themselves from these unproductive beliefs. The goal is for clients to develop a more constructive belief system that better supports their well-being.

How do you know when a client is making meaningful progress in anxiety therapy?

I can recognize a client's progress with their anxiety when they become increasingly aware of their unhelpful beliefs and can transition from a negative belief momentum to a more positive one. They start to realize the power of perspective and how they have control over which perspectives they empower.

What can clients do in their personal time to supplement anxiety therapy?

Clients can enhance their ability to manage anxiety by practicing mindfulness and being present with their anxiety, viewing it as a signal pointing to an unhelpful belief. During this time, clients can write down these unhelpful beliefs to gain a clearer understanding of what is embedded in their life template/beliefs, and then focus on restructuring these beliefs.

What should someone do to prepare for starting anxiety therapy?

Clients can prepare for their therapy intake by reflecting on their personal narrative and identifying moments of heightened anxiety they wish to discuss with the clinician. Additionally, conducting some research on cognitive behavioral therapy to understand the dynamics of personality and ego flow can be beneficial.

Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

Anxiety therapy helps people better understand and manage their anxiety. Anxiety therapists at Thriveworks in Duluth, GA can develop a treatment plan that will help you better manage your day-to-day anxiety or your anxiety disorder.

How does anxiety therapy work?

Anxiety therapy involves talking to a therapist about symptoms, potential causes, and more. Thriveworks Duluth therapists will then work with you to determine where your anxiety might stem from and teach you effective coping mechanisms.

How to deal with anxiety?

One of the best ways to deal with anxiety is to learn about your own anxiety: your symptoms, what triggers it, and what coping mechanisms have been effective in the past. When you learn what your anxiety is tied to, it can help you be mindful of what’s really happening as well as prevent and mitigate symptoms by processing and working through the issue in therapy. Other strategies that have been shown to help manage anxiety are meditation, challenging anxious thoughts, exercising, and journaling.

Symptoms of anxiety

Common symptoms of anxiety include:

  • Sense of impending danger
  • Nervousness/restlessness
  • Trouble focusing
  • Excessive sweating
  • Shaking
  • Headaches
  • Stomach issues
  • Fatigue
  • Panic attacks
  • Increased heart rate

What is the best therapy for anxiety?

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) can be incredibly effective in treating anxiety and anxiety disorders. Other effective techniques include exposure therapy, Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and EMDR therapy.

Is anxiety therapy conducted in person or online?

Anxiety therapy is conducted both in person and online, depending on the individual’s preferences and their therapist’s availability. We suggest choosing the option that best suits your needs.

How long does anxiety therapy last?

On average, people can tend to attend 15 to 20 session of anxiety therapy (five or more months). However, this number is heavily dependent on the type of anxiety that’s being treated and its severity, with many choosing to attend anxiety therapy for a longer period of time to ensure its effectiveness long-term.

Is therapy worth it for anxiety?

Yes, it is worth going to therapy for anxiety. If you are struggling with regular anxious thoughts and feelings that are affecting your day-to-day life or you suspect that you have an anxiety disorder, you should seek expert anxiety help.

Shame on Thrive works. My partner and I have been seeing a therapist and liked her. BUT both last week and this week we drove to Duluth location (35 minutes from my house), waited in the waiting room, only to find out our therapist wasn’t even there!!! Called to inquire why and basically got no reason. I received both the text message confirming my appointment and the emails. What if we were in crisis??? So disappointed with them.

Working with Eboni has truly transformed my life but also the personal love I have for myself. I’d thought I was need of therapy due to stress from my job. After a few months I realize that I was going to be tackling more than just work issues. Eboni was absolutely phenomenal in her quietness when I needed to see myself and determine the truth behind any problems I was trying to work through. I’m so much better because of it and I’m so happy that I made the decision to start. Though I still have a lot to work on;I can already see a difference and so can everyone else! Thank you Eboni!!

My counselor, Eboni, is amazing and finds different ways using different resources to help me seek better insight. She is highly recommended if you are looking for someone to deal with self-esteem and anger management issues.
