Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

Anxiety therapy helps people better understand and manage their anxiety. Anxiety therapists at Thriveworks in Gilbert, AZ 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 Gilbert 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?

Megan tends to overthink things. Even things like parallel parking, choosing food off of a menu, or talking to her coworkers becomes difficult as soon as her thoughts start to race. She’s always tried her best to hold on tight as her emotions take her for another wild ride, but the vicious cycle of anxiety is starting to get old. 

While she used to think that dealing with her anxiety meant staying closed off to talking about it, she’s noticed that might not be the healthiest approach. In fact, Megan is looking to schedule some time with a mental health professional to talk about her anxiety and hopefully learn to manage it better. She’s nervous about speaking with someone unfamiliar but also knows that it’s important to engage with them. 

If you’re in Megan’s situation, then perhaps you’ve noticed that your anxiety has also become a negative, disruptive presence in your life. We all get anxious from time to time, but when anxiety becomes a persistent issue, then talking with a mental health professional can make a big difference. If you’re ready to reclaim your independence from the grasp of anxiety, call Thriveworks in Gilbert, AZ. 

Do I Have Anxiety? What Are the Symptoms?

Anxiety manifests differently in everyone, but with that in mind, there are several common symptoms that may serve as warning signs when someone is constantly anxious. You may have anxiety if you experience the following: 

  • Racing thoughts, inability to focus on daily tasks 
  • Constant fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Constantly feeling stressed 
  • Desire to avoid social encounters 
  • Reliving traumatic experiences in dreams or flashbacks

With these symptoms in mind, it’s important to note that if you’re diagnosed by one of our providers, you may find that your personal experience with anxiety varies. Until you talk with a provider, it’s a better idea to be wary of the signs of anxiety and to connect with a licensed professional at Thriveworks in Gilbert, AZ to get treatment. 

How Can Thriveworks in Gilbert, AZ Help Me with My Anxiety?

Our therapists, counselors, and psychiatrists can help you to better manage, understand, and mitigate the symptoms of anxiety that you may be feeling. While our providers can all assist you effectively, their treatment approaches may vary. Our counselors and therapists help to treat anxiety by:

  • Teaching clients coping mechanisms to use in real-life, anxiety-inducing situations
  • Using talk therapy or behavioral therapy to promote self-awareness 
  • Helping family members or partners to understand their loved one’s anxiety through relationship therapy or family counseling 

In comparison, psychiatrists differ in that they… 

  • Are medical doctors 
  • Can prescribe helpful medication that assists clients in managing the disruptive, damaging symptoms of anxiety 
  • Can use a combination of therapy and prescriptions that may treat more severe cases of anxiety more successfully

The Different Anxiety Disorders

“Anxiety” as we commonly think of it actually refers to a cluster of closely related mental health disorders. There are many different types, but some of the most common that our therapists, counselors, and psychiatrists help to address and treat are: 

  • Social anxiety disorder: Social anxiety induces distress while engaging with other people. Everything from grocery runs to birthday parties can be cumbersome, fear-filled events.
  • Panic disorder: Panic disorder can cause panic attacks. These physical episodes might result in dizziness, chest pain, vertigo, and nausea. 
  • Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD): GAD causes anxiety in different scenarios, whether real or imagined. This disorder can be difficult to identify because it isn’t triggered by any single source of anxiety. 
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD): This disorder often induces irrational thought loops, or impulses to perform random physical actions in repetition. 
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD): PTSD, can occur in anyone that has been through a psychologically or physically painful event. Those who suffer from it are often privy to flashbacks to traumatic events, nightmares, and antisocial behavior.
