Anxiety Therapy in Boise, ID—Anxiety Help and Guidance

Do you feel uncomfortable or nervous when engaging in specific activities or in other scenarios? For example, attending a large meeting or meeting a friend for dinner and arriving first. Do you find yourself worrying about the unforeseeable future? Say, whether your kids are studying enough or if your partner will remember your birthday coming up.

If the answer is yes, you might have anxiety—just like millions of other people all over the world.

Anxiety can vary from person to person and even change in the way it affects you from day to day. But, it’s main characteristic is the excessive uncontrollable worry you experience.

Types of Anxiety Disorders

There is a wide variety of anxiety disorders that could explain why you’re feeling, thinking, or acting in a certain way. For example, generalized anxiety is characterized by that day to day anxious thinking, while social anxiety is characterized by those anxious thoughts and feelings you might experience in social situations.

Here is a list of common anxiety disorders and a little more information about each:

  • Generalized anxiety disorder: As we just explained, generalized anxiety is characterized by anxiety one experiences on a day to day basis in many different scenarios.
  • Social anxiety disorder: Social anxiety disorder is marked by anxiety one experiences in social situations. Some people with social anxiety feel anxious in any and all social situations, while others experience social anxiety in more specific instances, like when they are presenting something for work.
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder: This disorder, otherwise known as OCD, is characterized by obsessive thoughts and fears as well as compulsive behaviors. Many people with OCD have a fear of germs or are compelled to arrange things in a certain way.
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder: This disorder, or PTSD, occurs after an individual has experienced a traumatic event. Specific triggers often bring unwanted memories as well as anxious thoughts and fears back to your current state of mind. On top of anxiety, symptoms include irritability, hostility, and flashbacks.

These disorders can make day-to-day functioning difficult and unenjoyable. If you are experiencing any anxiety symptoms, please talk to a professional and get the help that you need. Thriveworks Counseling in Boise would be happy to set you up with one of our mental health professionals who specialize in anxiety treatment.

Anxiety: Symptoms and Causes

Everyone experiences anxiety from time to time. It’s the feeling you get when you’re running late to work or when you get a “we need to talk” text. To some degree, anxiety is a good thing. It keeps us on our toes and alert in certain situations. However, when it turns into one of the disorders as we mentioned above, it can do more harm than good.

There are several different signs and symptoms to be on the lookout for. Some may include:

  • Excessive or uncontrollable worry
  • Nausea
  • Racing thoughts
  • Trembling
  • Impending doom or dread
  • Lack of focus
  • Irritability
  • Fatigue
  • Panic Attacks
  • Excessive sweating

If you are presenting any of the above symptoms, be sure to reach out and get the treatment that you need. At Thriveworks Counseling in Boise, we can not only help you not only learn how to identify stressors but can help you manage symptoms before they arise.

Jared Bryson – Awesome Therapist

I have been working with Jared for over a year now. When I first started with him, I was apprehensive about going to a new therapist. I was with one before and did not have much success. After my first session, I knew he was the right fit for me. My spouse had already been going for a while, so we were able to compare experiences. One thing we noticed was how Jared adapted his therapy style to each of us. We then started couples therapy with him. He has been a God-send for us in helping us work through our issues. We were able to uncover things about us that made us stronger as a team. I cannot recommend Jared enough. He is truly amazing and a master of his craft.

Jared Bryson, LMFT

I met Jared @ an Out-Patient program back in 2012. I was going going threw so much at work & home and was in much need of guidance! While I HATED being there, I knew something needed to change. Somehow through out the years, I had lost my Voice. I no longer could balance what we call LIFE. Being a Wife, Step-mom, Business Woman, the Pilar to my immediate family & finally having my own child, took a toll on me...I could no longer function! While in this program, Jared asked my permission if he could be my Voice. Confused, I said yes. Then he said I could take it back when I was ready. Again confused, I replied...Okay. Each day with him, I grew stronger & stronger. I looked forward to being in the Program. By the end,I knew what he meant, I had my VOICE back! Jared helped me find myself again! Jared is NOT your typical therapist. He does not sit there with a pen + paper asking the obvious questions! He is a real down to earth person who genuinely cares about you & wants you to succeed. I was so HAPPY to find out he ventured out on his own. He has been my LIFE COACH since leaving the program & now my 13 yr old gets the PRIVILEGE to benefit from his wisdom as well! I will follow him (Virtually) where ever he goes!
