What is your go-to approach for anxiety therapy?

My approach for treating anxiety involves using a cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) protocol, utilizing Socratic probing cognition to establish the root causes. This helps in choosing steps to dismantle the anxiety's catastrophic prediction of outcomes.

What tools do you teach in anxiety therapy?

I teach clients to probe what I call “resume of falsehood,” which are the suggested would-be outcomes of anxiety. By describing what happens if HR finds a resume of an applicant false, it helps clients to gradually discard those predicted outcomes and diminish the feelings associated with them.

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

I know a client is making progress when they can describe outcomes of the tools they have used to challenge thoughts of catastrophic predictions of anxiety. Also, when the client can describe regaining confidence to an optimal functioning level.

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

I encourage clients to invest in their self-care, which helps diffuse anxiety feelings.

What should someone do to prepare for starting anxiety therapy?

I encourage clients to list their multiple suspected triggers to anxiety.

Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

Anxiety therapy helps people better understand and manage their anxiety. Anxiety therapists at Thriveworks in Cypress, TX 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 Cypress 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.

Need more help deciding?

Jake frequently finds it difficult to talk in public spaces. As he’s gotten older, managing his anxiety has been a constant challenge. In fact, he’s gone to great lengths to conceal the frustration and fear he’s faced with each time he needs to speak up at work. Dating someone has been nearly impossible, and he feels more distant from his friends and family than he’d like. 

With his 30th birthday approaching, Jake feels like he’s at a crossroads. He knows that if he continues to isolate himself by letting his social anxiety control him, he’ll be lonely. But instead of facing his anxiety alone, Jake wants to talk to a mental health professional—someone with a clinical, practical understanding of anxiety. He hopes that by opening up to them, he can start to address the social anxiety that’s causing him so much pain. 

Like Jake, anxiety can become a daily nuisance for many. If your anxiety feels relentless, Thriveworks in Cypress, TX has providers who can offer you relief. If you’re interested in discovering how a mental health professional can help you learn to manage your anxiety, call Thriveworks in Cypress, TX today.

Do I Have Anxiety? 

Most people know when they’re anxious, but having recurrent anxiety is a different story. If you’re feeling persistent anxiety, your symptoms may include: 

  • Fatigue, difficulty sleeping 
  • Anger issues
  • Decreased performance at work
  • Racing thoughts, inability to concentrate
  • Digestive problems 

Though there are many types of anxiety disorders, some forms that we can assist with include: 

  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
  • Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD)
  • Panic Disorder
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) 

If you have anxiety, these are only a few of the signs and disorder types that may present themselves. Regardless of your situation, talking with a mental health professional at Thriveworks in Cypress, TX could make a big difference. By communicating with one of our providers, your feedback will help you receive personalized care, based on the needs and concerns that you share. 

How Can a Mental Health Professional Help?

Our providers help everyday people find relief and newfound quality of life through our mental health services. However, we offer several different types of mental health professionals to choose from, who can assist you with your anxiety in different ways. Our psychologists and therapists are a great option for those with mild or more manageable anxiety disorders. Psychologists and therapists can: 

  • Help family members or partners understand their loved one’s anxiety through relationship therapy or family counseling 
  • Use talk therapy or behavioral therapy techniques to promote your self-awareness 
  • Work with clients to help them develop coping mechanisms to use in the situations that matter most 

And if you have a more persistent or severe case of anxiety, receiving treatment from one of our psychiatrists could be a more effective route. Psychiatrists are set apart by being both licensed medical doctors and therapists simultaneously. Psychiatrists can help with your anxiety by: 

  • Prescribing helpful medication that assists clients in managing the disruptive, damaging symptoms of anxiety 
  • Using a combination of prescription medications and therapy sessions to treat clients, as needed 

Regardless of the mental health professional you’re matched with, anxiety can be a serious mental health condition that may worsen without proper professional attention. Rest assured, at Thriveworks in Cypress, TX our providers are not only industry-leading experts, but are also great listeners.
