Anxiety Therapy in Jacksonville, FL (West)—Anxiety Therapists, Counselors

Think back on your week: Did you stress about whether you’d make it to work on time? Did you worry about how your kid was doing at school? Did you feel anxious about your interview? Did you worry that groceries would be too expensive? You likely answered yes to one of the former questions. If you didn’t, you likely worried or felt anxious about another event. Why? Because it’s human nature! However, though it’s completely normal to worry, it’s important to differentiate the occasional worry from out-of-control anxiety.

“Slow breathing is like an anchor in the midst of an emotional storm: the anchor won’t make the storm go away, but it will hold you steady until it passes.” –Russ Harris

Anxiety is what we call excessive and uncontrollable thoughts.

Anxiety Symptoms: Am I Suffering from Anxiety?

Some people can easily recognize that they suffer from anxious thoughts; others have trouble separating normal worrying from anxiety. In any case, it’s important to understand and recognize what anxious thinking looks like. In addition to excessive, uncontrollable thoughts, anxiety can come with:

  • Fast heartrate
  • Tense muscles
  • Lack of concentration
  • Irritability
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Nausea
  • Sweaty palms
  • Sense of impending doom

As you can see from the statistics we mentioned above, there are plenty of people just like you who struggle with anxiety and its accompanying symptoms. You should not feel shame about your anxiety, but you should seek the right help. An anxiety therapist or psychologist at Thriveworks Jacksonville, FL (West) can help you understand your anxiety, including your symptoms and triggers. They can also help you manage your anxiety symptoms and cope better with your anxious thoughts.

Anxiety Disorders: What Kind of Anxiety Do I Have?

There are different types of anxiety, including generalized anxiety (the kind we’ve been discussing), as well as social anxiety, specific phobias, obsessive-compulsive thoughts, and more. Let’s delve into a few of these disorders below:

  1. Generalized anxiety: Generalized anxiety disorder is the anxiety that most people experience, which is characterized by anxious thoughts about a variety of events and circumstances.
  2. Social anxiety: Social anxiety disorder, on the other hand, is characterized by anxiety caused by social situations and the fear of being negatively perceived by others.
  3. Specific phobia: Specific phobia varies on a case by case basis, in terms of what makes one fearful or anxious. For example, one might have a phobia of flying or encountering a spider.
  4. Obsessive compulsive disorder: OCD is characterized by recurrent thoughts that lead the individual to perform specific actions.

If you are experiencing symptoms of any of the above anxiety disorders, again, reach out for help. You can learn to manage your specific symptoms with an anxiety therapist. You might also benefit from an anti-anxiety medication, which a psychologist can help you attain in medication management.

Thriveworks Counseling Jacksonville (West)


Jessica Gort is by far the best therapist I’ve ever had. She’s not only met my needs and expectations, she goes above and beyond that. When I first met with Jessica i was newly sober and recently lost my father, I was struggling and had just ended a professional relationship with a prior therapist that couldn’t help me with what I needed at that time. I felt lost and was losing hope until I met her. I expressed my concerns with Jessica and she did everything she could to help me in the ways that I needed, to keep my sobriety and mental health intact during my grieving process. If I could rate her 10 stars I would. She’s amazing. Highly recommend.

I enjoyed working with Erin. She has my best interest at heart which is very important to me. I love how attentive and empathic Erin is towards my needs, and I am close to meeting my therapeutic goals. I have learned that life is a journey, and we should work on improving ourselves daily. I would most definitely recommend Erin to anyone who may need therapy, and I would work with her again. Thank you, Erin

Ms. Jessica Bailey

In my time working with Jessica, I have experienced nothing but kindness and empathy from her. Jessica fully listened to my concerns and helped me work through overwhelming situations on multiple occasions. Jessica provided non-judgmental support without being overbearing. I would definitely work with Jessica again and recommend her to anyone in need of support.
