What is your go-to approach for anxiety therapy?

My go-to approach for treating anxiety is an eclectic approach to individualizing care for what my client needs. I find the best benefit in using a mixture of cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused techniques, and mindfulness, because the combination of these three therapies incorporates thoughts, emotions, and body awareness. I believe addressing therapeutic issues holistically can be quite effective and address a multitude of my clients' needs.

What tools do you teach in anxiety therapy?

I teach the following tools in anxiety therapy:

  • Awareness: Without awareness, we can't change. How are your thoughts, emotions, and/or body cues affecting your anxiety? What are your triggers?
  • Identifying cognitive distortions: What unhealthy repetitive thought patterns are happening subconsciously?
  • Reframing: How we can reframe these negative thought patterns to empower you as the client?
  • Curiosity with empowerment: Imagine a miracle happened overnight, and your problem has disappeared. How would you know? What would be different? How would you be different?
  • Deep breathing: Breathing exercises to slow down an overworked nervous system and create more self-awareness and safety within your body.
Plus many more depending on what my clients' goals and needs are!

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

I know a client is making meaningful progress in anxiety therapy when they are feeling more empowered, their symptoms have decreased in intensity/duration/frequency, and their coping skills have increased. I love when clients are able to celebrate their hard work and say “My panic attacks are happening less!” or “I was able to journal when I was feeling anxious this week instead of doom scrolling!”

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

Clients can supplement their time in anxiety therapy with journaling, mindful walks or other enjoyable forms of exercise, deep breathing practices at home, comforting hobbies, and social support, along with healthy social media use.

What should someone do to prepare for starting anxiety therapy?

To prepare for your first anxiety therapy session, you can reflect on what goals you want to work on in therapy, what obstacles have gotten in your way, and what you might need from a therapist. Remember therapy is about YOU, so it is important that you find a therapist you connect with and feel empowered and comfortable enough to be vulnerable. It is also completely normal to feel nervous and/or anxious before starting therapy, so congratulations on being brave and showing up for yourself in a loving way!

Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

Anxiety therapy helps people better understand and manage their anxiety. Anxiety therapists at Thriveworks in Colorado Springs, CO 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 Colorado Springs 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.

Jerry was amazing! Jerry uses choice theory in order to help his patients grow and work through their problems. Choice theory was helpful through my relationship counseling but also could be used individually to helps each person grow themselves. Jerry used real scenarios in order to water down the theory, making it less scientific and more geared toward individual use. Jerry was patient, helpful, and very understanding.
