Therapy for Anxiety in Detroit, MI

It’s difficult to explain anxiety to someone who hasn’t experienced it themselves. Your mind is weighed down with heavy thoughts that you can’t control. Overwhelming thoughts that challenge your self-worth, stability, and sanity.

Some people experience anxious thoughts and feelings in a range of scenarios. They feel anxious at work, at home, in their relationships. Other people experience anxious thoughts and feelings in more specific scenarios: For example, in social interactions or as a result of trauma.

Regardless of the specifics, anxiety disorders have a harmful effect on those who suffer with them. These individuals must learn to manage their symptoms and alleviate their anxious feelings in the given scenarios. Often, doing so successfully is hard unless a mental health professional is involved. 

Thriveworks Counseling in Detroit, MI has anxiety therapists and psychologists who can help you. These professionals specialize in helping individuals with anxiety. If you’re experiencing any signs of anxiety, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We want to put you on the right path of healing.

Anxiety Disorders: Different Types of Anxiety

Anxiety can be separated into different categories, depending on exact symptoms. First, though, the following are common, general symptoms of anxiety:

  • Racing thoughts
  • Feeling of impending doom
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Changes in appetite and eating
  • Feelings of restlessness
  • Fatigue
  • Sweating
  • Nausea
  • Hypervigilance

The main characteristic of anxiety are those uncontrollable, racing thoughts. The other symptoms listed above may accompany those racing thoughts. Now, there are a few main types of anxiety that people experience. These anxiety disorders include:

  1. Generalized anxiety disorder. As the name suggests, this is a general form of anxiety. This represents the anxiety that people experience on a day to day basis in a range of scenarios and is one of the most common presentations of anxiety.
  2. Post-traumatic stress disorder. Post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, is another type of anxiety. This disorder can occur after one experiences a traumatic event, such as the loss of a loved one, a physical injury, or mental abuse.
  3. Social anxiety disorder. Social anxiety disorder, otherwise known as social phobia, is also common. People who suffer from social anxiety feel uncomfortable in social interactions. Often, this discomfort comes from the fear of being negatively perceived by others. 
  4. Panic disorder. This anxiety disorder is characterized by panic attacks. Many individuals mistake their panic attacks for heart attacks. Other symptoms include loss of control over one’s thoughts and physical responses.

Do you exhibit any symptoms of the above? Are you feeling anxious and unable to control your racing thoughts? Consider reaching out to Thriveworks Counseling in Detroit, MI to begin working with an anxiety therapist.

Thriveworks Counseling Detriot


I contacted Thriveworks in July in dire need of an experienced therapist after trying many other options. I write this in January thankful those other possibilities did not work out. I was assigned Ms. Megan Dunne and I was extremely fortunate to have her professional help during these last 6 months. She made me feel more comfortable "in my own skin" by the end of our second session than I had in a long time. She assigned me to keep a "GRATEFUL JOURNAL" which was only the beginning. Her calm demeanor and probing questions gave me insightful sessions that were followed by more assigned readings. Today I am in SUCH a better place than when I was in our 1st session and I am grateful to have had Megan as my therapist!

Megan Dunne is my Therapist. I’ve had a few therapists throughout my life and it’s hard to find one that makes a difference and helps you. I’m learning a lot from her and I use the techniques she taught me in stressful situations. Great Therapist!
