Find a Counselor or Therapist for Anxiety in Georgetown, TX

James has been having a rough time lately. No matter what he tries to do, it feels like there’s something eating at him. Whether he’s at work, with friends, or trying to date, he can’t shake this feeling of nervousness, a deep unsettling sensation that seems to follow him throughout his daily life. And although James is trying his best to shake the anxiety that he feels, sometimes there’s just so much on his plate every day that pushing the uncomfortable thoughts away seems like the most he’s capable of. 

Yet he doesn’t want to let things continue to escalate. That’s why he’s deciding to meet with a mental health professional to talk about the symptoms of his recurring anxiety.

Like James, you may also be looking for freedom from your recurring anxiety. That’s why Thriveworks in Georgetown, TX has counselors and therapists who can help you, offering personalized treatment that addresses your needs. Call our office, or go online to book your first session. You can thrive—we can help. 

What Are the Symptoms of Anxiety?

Though diagnosing yourself with any sort of mental condition isn’t possible, it’s helpful when you can identify the signs of anxiety when they’re present in your daily life. Anxiety can manifest differently for everyone, but you may feel the following symptoms: 

  • Difficulty sleeping or insomnia 
  • Dry throat, especially in social or public speaking settings
  • Racing thoughts that are difficult to manage 
  • Chronic fatigue or bowel conditions like IBS, acid reflux, or IBD
  • Nausea or dizziness, rapid heartbeat 
  • Restlessness, agitation 
  • The sensation of being emotionally drained 

Without treatment, these symptoms can become a constant and malignant disruption to your daily life. Interpersonal relationships and professional environments can also become hard to manage. 

Some of the most common forms of anxiety disorders are: 

  • Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD): As the name implies, this disorder often doesn’t arise from a specific source. Those with it often struggle to describe or understand where the sensation of constantly being on edge comes from.
  • Post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD): PTSD is usually triggered by a specific event or set of events that the sufferer witnessed, or was part of. These memories can be recent or from the distant past. Those with PTSD are often plagued by nightmares, flashbacks, and might seem withdrawn.
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD): People affected with OCD often fixate on irrational thoughts, or repetitive actions or behaviors. Those with this condition may additionally have extreme superstitious beliefs. 
  • Social anxiety disorder: This condition causes individuals to face extreme anxiety during or prior to social interactions. It can be triggered by everything from concerts to small family gatherings. 
  • Panic disorder: This anxiety disorder is well-known for causing panic attacks. People with panic disorder, when triggered, experience chest pain or tightness, cold sweats, dizziness, and nausea as a result of their anxiety. 

Anxiety Therapy Services at Thriveworks in Georgetown, TX

Talking to a therapist or counselor about your anxiety is a great way to reduce the emotional weight of your mental health challenges. Our therapists and counselors will listen and do their best to offer you coping strategies that target your anxiety and serve to help you control your emotions. Some of their techniques may include: 

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) 
  • Dialectal behavioral therapy (DBT)
  • Exposure therapy
  • Acceptance and commitment therapy

Talking to a therapist or counselor is often beneficial for many people, but for some with more intense or persistent anxiety, our psychiatrists may be preferred.

Psychiatric Services for Anxiety 

Psychiatrists are licensed providers who are also medical doctors, while psychiatric nurse practitioners are skilled professionals who can also assist our clients. With helpful prescription medication, psychiatrists and nurse practitioners are aptly equipped to diagnose and treat complicated disorders that affect the emotions and behavior of those who are suffering from anxiety. 

While not every person will need a prescription, those who do can receive them discreetly with our online psychiatry option. Online psychiatry is a great way to cut back on the time it takes to travel to a brick-and-mortar office for treatment.

  • High-touch assistance 7 days a week 
  • Assistance in adding your insurance, or even Medicare for some locations (check web availability)
  • Help talking you through online and in-person session options 
  • Help finding you weekend and evening session times

Thriveworks Counseling Georgetown

Ashley

★★★★★
I thought our marriage was over. I only gave him one option (counseling) or I was leaving. I wanted him to do it because he realized he had to make some changes in his thinking and his life...for his own happiness. The first counselor he tolerated for 1 session. I told him to do his own homework and he found Ashley on his own. The fact that my husband has been in her counseling for close to 2 years is truly amazing. This was one man who I totally expected to do 3-4 sessions and then decide it wasn't for him and then I would just consider divorce because our life was intolerable for me. He has learned things about himself that now make him very thoughtful about things and about what matters in his life and in our life. I am so appreciative for Ashley.

Amazing!!!

★★★★★
Absolutely love everything about Lindsey. She is amazing with my son (age 6). It has helped him so so so much and helped me parent the way he needs. I am so glad we were able to start seeing her and continue seeing her. He loves going to therapy and since we started his behavior has become so much better. Being a single mom of two, I'm glad he get specific attention from someone who cares. Thank you! I would give 10 stars if I could.

Excellent therapist

★★★★★
Linda Mikesic is a fantastic therapist and person. She has a compassion and love for others that can’t be taught. Being a mental health care provider, I am always looking for therapists to refer patients to. Therapists I can count on to treat my patients with love and respect. I've known Linda and collaborated with her for 3 years and fits that definition every time. I know when I refer my patients to Linda, that they will get individualized compassionate person-centered care.

Linda Mikesic is amazing.

★★★★★
I started seeing Linda Mikesic in 2016 when my soulmate cat died suddenly and in a horrible way and I was consumed with grief. The death of my cat brought up several unresolved issues in my life and I desperately needed someone to help me and to give me tools to want to wake up in the morning and face life once again. I had gone through a very traumatic experience and Linda walked me though step by step to heal showing me what was broken inside of me and how to move through my grief. I was stuck and she listened to me and was strong and gave me the tools to get unstuck and to feel joy in my life once again. I will be forever indebted to her for showing me the light in life once again. Anyone who can get an appointment with her will be very lucky. She is involved from day one and she cares and is accessible via text and email and from the first session will give you tools and help to make you feel like you can see things in a different way. Such a cool lady and such an amazing professional. I love that she is strong. Just go and see her do not hesitate. She never minimized my grief and I felt tremendously safe and supported by her. She is a ROCK STAR. Forever grateful for meeting this woman.

Linda Mikesic is an outstanding therapist. An active and nonjudgmental professional she had me set realistic and actionable goals that I expected to receive from therapy. Linda's insight provided me a customized process for identifying, understanding and addressing the root causes of my issues. Cognitive therapy at its finest! While I am a work in process Linda was instrumental in assisting me in bringing me to a place where I have never felt better. I will continue to use the tools she provided daily to grow confidently and live a fulfilling life! I enthusiastically recommend Linda. At the same time I encourage you to take responsibility for the assignments she provides so as to facilitate recovery.
