Therapy for Anxiety — Find Appointments in Cedar Rapids, IA

Therapy for Anxiety — Find Appointments in Cedar Rapids, IA

It’s normal to feel stressed out every so often. Maybe you feel nervous before a job interview or a big meeting, or perhaps you get anxious before a first date or a dentist appointment. This is a natural part of life and can even help give you the motivation you need to ask that person out or get the job offer.

But for some people, anxiety is more than an occasional feeling they experience from time to time. Instead, more severe anxiety disorders can become totally overwhelming and make it difficult to function normally in day-to-day life. They may be consumed by anxiety to the point where they avoid social situations, suffer uncomfortable symptoms, or even have a hard time getting out of bed in the morning.

Mental health issues are more common than you may realize and many celebrities like Miley Cyrus have spoken publicly about their anxiety. Cyrus’ symptoms got so severe at one point that she even had to cancel several of her performances. She went on to find the help she needed to manage her symptoms, and you can do the same.

If you or someone you know feels like anxiety is getting in the way, it may be time to make an appointment with a mental health professional. Anxiety disorders can be painful but our team at Thriveworks in Cedar Rapids, IA is here to provide the care and support you need.

Anxiety Symptom Checklist

When anxiety symptoms start to interfere with your daily life, it may be an indication that you’re experiencing an anxiety disorder.

Here are some of the most common anxiety symptoms people report struggling with:

  • Restlessness
  • Insomnia
  • Fatigue
  • Weakness
  • Digestive issues
  • Decreased libido
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Unexplained pain
  • Tremors or twitching
  • Dizziness
  • Rapid breathing
  • Nausea
  • Headaches

Anxiety symptoms can be both physical and psychological in nature and can range from mild to severe. If you are experiencing any of these anxiety symptoms, do not hesitate to contact us at Thriveworks in Cedar Rapids, IA.

Common Types of Anxiety Disorders

The symptoms you experience may also differ depending on the type of anxiety disorder you have. Some of the most common disorders include:

  • Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD): This is characterized by chronic anxiety, worry, and tension, even when there is nothing to provoke these feelings.
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD): OCD is characterized by unreasonable fears (obsessions) that may cause compulsive, repetitive behaviors.
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD): PTSD symptoms — such as nightmares, insomnia, and social isolation — typically stem from a traumatic episode that occurred in a person’s life.
  • Panic disorder: People with panic disorder experience recurring panic attacks, which are characterized by the sudden onset of terror, shortness of breath, fast heartbeat, and/or sweating.

How Therapy Can Help

If you have never had anxiety counseling before, you may be wondering what to expect. The first step a counselor or therapist will take is to talk to you about your problems so they can understand your symptoms and how they are interfering with your life. This will help them customize a sensible treatment plan.

There are many types of treatment options that can help reduce anxiety symptoms. Various forms of therapy are often used to help clients address their emotions; cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), for example, can help you swap out harmful thought patterns for more helpful ones. Exposure therapy can give you a slow and safe introduction to your fears so you can overcome your phobias under the guidance of a trained professional.

Medications are also sometimes prescribed, depending on the symptoms and the specifics of the situation. If you’re ready to see what kind of treatment plan is right for you, consider scheduling an appointment at Thriveworks in Cedar Rapids, IA.

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.

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!!!
