Baltimore Anxiety Counseling

Anxiety Therapy at Thriveworks Baltimore Counseling—Anxiety Therapists, Counselors

Many people who deal with anxiety do everything they can to avoid situations that trigger it. This makes sense—in fact, it’s exactly the advice the brain is giving—but exploring these feelings and urges in a safe space is one of the only ways to actually address the problem and potentially say goodbye to anxiety for good. Thriveworks Baltimore Counseling can help you accomplish this mission in anxiety therapy.

“You don’t have to control your thoughts.

You just have to stop letting them control you.”

–Dan Millman

If you’re struggling with anxiety, consider scheduling an anxiety therapy appointment at Thriveworks Baltimore Counseling. We can set you up with an anxiety therapist with the right knowledge, skillset, and experience to help you.

What Are Anxiety Signs and Symptoms?

There are different signs and symptoms of anxiety. That said, from a general standpoint, someone with an anxiety disorder experiences racing thoughts or excessive worry. In addition, they might exhibit the following:

  • Hypervigilance
  • Restlessness
  • Lack of focus
  • Fatigue
  • Excessive worry
  • Insomnia
  • Palpitations
  • Trembling
  • Sweating

If you are experiencing anxiety symptoms and think that you might have an anxiety disorder, it’s important that you speak to a mental health professional. An anxiety therapist or counselor at Thriveworks Baltimore Counseling can assist you in many different ways, as you learn to manage your anxiety. First, they can help you explore any potential causes (which we’ll get to later). They can also help you better cope with each specific symptom that you are exhibiting. The end goal, though, is to help you live a happy, successful life. And anything that might be getting in your way of that, your therapist will work to address.

Common Causes of Anxiety: What’s Yours? How Can Therapy Help?

Some clients don’t need any help discovering where their anxiety stems from. They may have lived a relatively anxiety-free existence until a particularly traumatizing event took place. It could be a physical or sexual assault, the death of a loved one or something else entirely. If you already know where your anxiety comes from then you can discuss options with your counselor to address the cause. Your anxiety therapist can work with you to find the right way through it.

Now, if you don’t know where your anxiety stems from, an anxiety therapist can still help you. When you go to anxiety therapy at Thriveworks Baltimore Counseling, your therapist can help you to dig into your past and other potential contributing factors. In some cases, the treatment is the same no matter what the cause. Regardless of your current situation, you can count on your counselor to take your needs and concerns into consideration.

Someone who understands

In these tense and uncertain times, it’s really helpful to be able to talk to someone who I know shares similar experiences, can understand where I’m coming from, and can help me understand how to do the best I can to improve myself in my circumstances. Tia is a great listener with a gentle, calming demeanor. She knows how to laugh and how to really listen. She’s really helped me through some tough times and encouraged me throughout. Don’t know what I’d do without her!

Sandy has been very helpful

As first-generation immigrants we have a touch time raising kids in US. Being caught between two different cultures, our teenager daughter intuitively rejects parents' culture and is often unrespectful toward parents and her sibling. But we as parents have no relatives in US for counseling. Talking to Sandra has been very helpful as she instructed us how to communicate with our confused teenager, how to guide her through the difficult time. Thank you, Sandy!
