Meet with a local Thriveworks provider -- we accept insurance & provide personalized, high-quality care.


It is human nature to worry: about waking up in time for work (even when we know we’ve set an alarm), keeping our loved ones happy, teaching our kids right from wrong, making enough money to pay the bills and have a little extra for spending… the list goes on. And while this list might look a little different for each person, one thing remains true: We all worry! This probably won’t change anytime soon. However, it is important to note that all worrying isn’t acceptable. If your worry has reached the point of causing you significant distress, it is unhealthy and needs to be addressed.

Anxiety is extreme or excessive worry. And it can cause serious harm if it isn’t dealt with properly. If you think that your worry is a little more serious than your occasional concerns, consider working with an anxiety therapist or psychologist. These professionals specialize in helping people to understand and manage their harmful symptoms. They can prove valuable to your life, whether you’re dealing with generalized anxiety or a more specific anxiety disorder.

“I have anxiety. And I’m treating my anxiety. I’m on medication for my anxiety. Why am I saying this? Because it’s a completely normal thing. More and more people should talk openly about it.” –Anushka Sharma
