Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

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

What Is Anxiety Therapy?

Anxiety therapy (or anxiety counseling as it is sometimes referred to) is a set of therapeutic methods that help clients learn to control and regulate their symptoms. The symptoms of anxiety can vary depending on what type of anxiety a person is experiencing. 

Common indications that someone may be suffering from anxiety include the following:

  • Restlessness
  • Excessive, uncontrollable worries
  • Muscle tension
  • Irritability
  • Agitation
  • Racing thoughts
  • Disturbed sleep 
  • Quality of being easily tired
  • Attention or concentration difficulties

In addition, a person might experience physical symptoms like headaches or stomach aches/gastrointestinal issues. Someone with panic disorder may have a racing heart and shortness of breath that makes them feel as if they’re on the verge of a heart attack. They may sweat profusely or become nauseated. 

How Does Anxiety Therapy Work?

The counselors at Thriveworks David, FL use several tools to assess and treat people with anxiety therapy. Each treatment plan is tailored to the client’s individual needs, but popular types of therapy include the following:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Exposure therapy, especially for specific phobias of objects or situations (also called systematic desensitization)
  • Strength-based therapy
  • Mindfulness
  • Trauma-informed therapy
  • Anxiety medication like antidepressants, prescribed by a licensed Thriveworks psychiatric NP
  • Meditation 
  • Relaxation techniques like progressive muscle relaxation or deep breathing
  • Supportive-expressive therapy
  • Biofeedback 
  • Support groups
  • Substance abuse counseling
  • Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR)
  • Nutrition and exercise recommendations
  • Family therapy or couples counseling 

Because anxiety and depression often occur together, therapists who specialize in anxiety counseling are also trained to recognize the symptoms of depression and potentially treat these conditions in tandem.

What Are the Differences Between the Anxiety Disorders?

Here’s a guide to the different types of anxiety that can be treated through anxiety counseling:

When it comes to anxiety therapy, mental health professionals pay close attention to the symptoms someone is experiencing. A diagnosis is according to symptoms, but there is often considerable overlap between these conditions. 

Many people have experienced these feelings to some degree, but only a mental health professional can give an accurate diagnosis and medical advice. Not everyone who has anxiety is suffering from a disorder—but can they still be treated via anxiety therapy. 

Is There Anxiety Therapy Near Me?

If you’re wondering, “Is there anxiety therapy near me?”, the answer is yes. At Thriveworks in Davie, FL we can meet with our clients in person at the office or virtually through secure, HIPAA-compliant online counseling sessions. 

Both types of sessions are of the same premium quality. Online counseling may especially help clients experiencing acute symptoms of anxiety, which can sometimes make it difficult to leave the house. 

And after booking your first session online, or over the phone with one of our specialists, you can enjoy access to benefits that most other providers might struggle to match, such as: 

  • In-network coverage with most insurance providers
  • Help when and where you need it, with in-person and online counseling
  • Quick scheduling for both in-person and online sessions
  • Personalized mental health care for your unique needs

When you’re ready, we’ve made it easy to schedule your first anxiety therapy session. And with help from one of our experienced counselors, you can get the treatment you need to manage your symptoms. Start attending anxiety counseling with Thriveworks today.
