Cedar Park Anxiety Counseling

Anxiety in Cedar Park, TX—Counseling and Therapy

NBA All-Star, Kevin Love, was on the court, with his team one moment. The next moment, he was nowhere to be seen. His teammates had no idea where he was. Love, a top athlete on a top professional basketball team, was at the peak of his career. He was at the peak of his physical fitness. But he was also not with his team that day because he was lying down on the training room’s floor, barely able to breath. Love was having a panic attack. Later, he wrote about the experience, saying that anxiety had been building up in his life for months. That anxiety could not be contained any longer and expressed itself in a panic attack. Love is one of 40 million people in the US who currently have an anxiety disorder. Anyone who has anxiety knows what it means to…

  • Feel worried and nervous all the time.
  • Be isolated and lonely, thinking they are the only one who feels this way.
  • Be unable to explain to loved ones how difficult and draining it is to be constantly anxious.
  • Never have a rest from the weight of these difficult feelings.
  • Dialogue with themselves, in their heads, focusing upon all the fears and inadequacies and insecurities.

“Anxiety is a thin stream of fear trickling through the mind.
If encouraged, it cuts a channel into which all other thoughts are drained.”
—Arthur Somers Roche

All people feel afraid or worried or even anxious at times. When these feelings are acting as they should, they rise and then they fall quickly and naturally. Anxiety disorders are a very different experience. When people have anxiety disorders, the feelings of worry and anxiety and fear rise and stay. Anxiety changes the way an individual’s brain functions so that these feelings are unmanageable. Just like cancer or diabetes, anxiety is a serious medical condition. Also like other serious illnesses, there are effective treatments for anxiety. With a mental health professional’s intervention, many people can heal from anxiety.

When worry is a constant part of your life… when thinking and making decisions is difficult… when you feel isolated and alone…consider reaching out for help. Thriveworks Cedar Park offers treatment for anxiety. Our therapists understand what anxiety is, how it functions, and the treatment options that are available for it.

What Is Anxiety?

Most people speak about anxiety in a singular way. While there are many common denominators to each form, there are many different forms of anxiety disorder. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Health, 5th Edition gives the diagnostics for several anxiety disorders. Here are just a few…

  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) – This is the disorder that most people simply call anxiety. Generalized Anxiety Disorder causes people to feel acute anxiety for the majority of the day. This feel will be present on more days than not and for at least six continuous months. Other symptoms such as irritability, fatigue, and restlessness will also be present.
  • Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD) – This is a form of anxiety that surfaces around social interactions. When people have SAD, they often do anything to avoid social events and interactions with strangers. When people with SAD are around people, they often feel judged and embarrassed, even in the presence of people who care about them. Social Anxiety Disorder keeps people from the very thing they most need—relationships.
  • Panic Disorder – For some people, like Kevin Love, their anxiety surfaces as a panic attack. When people experience more than one panic attack, they may have Panic Disorder. A panic attack can occur from out of the blue. When symptoms begin to show, they escalate for several minutes and then subside. Symptoms include numb limbs, hot flashes, difficulty breathing, racing heart, chills, and more. Often, people feel as if they are dying.
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) – When people experience a traumatic event, they also experience extreme anxiety and stress. At times, even though the event passes, these feelings may not. They may develop into PTSD. People who have Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder may have flashbacks, nightmares or intrusive memories about the trauma. They often live with a heightened sense of awareness and constant anxiety.

Anxiety’s Emotional and Physical Challenges

Every disease introduces challenges into an individual’s life, and anxiety is no different. Many people who suffer from anxiety also experience…

  • Disrupted Appetite – Anxiety often changes an individual’s appetite, causing them to over eat or under eat. People’s weight often fluctuates accordingly.
  • Irregular Sleep Patterns – Similar to appetite, anxiety can disrupt people’s sleep pattern, causing either hypersomnia or insomnia.
  • Fatigue – Fighting an illness is draining. When people have anxiety, everyday activities can take enormous strength.
  • Difficulty Focusing – When an individual’s mind is filled with negative emotions, it can be difficult for them to concentrate.
  • Indecisiveness – When thinking is difficult, so is making a decision. Anxiety can leave people stuck in big and small decisions.

Thriveworks Counseling Cedar Park

Deissy is the best!

★★★★★
I have been seeing therapists for about 20 years now, with little success. Until I met with Deissy Rosenbaum. It is obvious to me that Deissy deeply cares about my well-being; she combines complex techniques that I have never seen before, resulting in remarkable success. I have been able to remember things from my youth that were long suppressed, and feel much more whole inside. She is very humble, but her talents are quite impressive. I would describe her as patient, soft-spoken, and sensitive to my feelings. I could particularly see her working well with children, and in reality, getting in touch with my inner child was part of what really helped me. She is very easy to talk to, and I’m really happy I found her.

Susan Wills

★★★★★
Susan Wills is an amazing counselor. I have been going to her for several months now and she has helped me with adjusting to my new life in Texas and overcoming the challenges that life presents. Susan is a great listener, can relate to her clients and provides meaningful homework assignments to help her clients meet their goals. I have seen several counselors in the past and I have made more progress working with Susan by attending sessions and doing the work necessary outside of our sessions to improve my mental health.

A Caring and Helpful Counselor

★★★★★
Susan Wills has been my therapist for a few months now. I had never attended therapy before, but felt I needed to in order to get my emotions in order. She is so good at her help, that never feel like I've been through "therapy", but always leave her office in a much better mood and can more easily handle the stresses and difficulties my life seems to bring. I would recommend her to anyone, especially if you've never had therapy or counseling before.

Susan Wills

★★★★★
I believe everything happens for a reason. I've had difficulty even meeting a therapist. I've had therapists cancel on me before even meeting them.. and then there was Susan. She has already done wonders on me and my self-growth. She gives you resources and outlets to use in between sessions. She takes the time to listen and make you feel valued and cared for. She is having me practice gratitude and to be honest, she is what I am most grateful for at this stage in my life. I feel stronger everyday now. Please know she is one of a kind and deserves your time if you are willing. Anyone is lucky to have her!!!
