Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

Anxiety therapy helps people better understand and manage their anxiety. Anxiety therapists at Thriveworks in Johnson City, TN 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 Johnson City 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?

Have you been living with anxiety for years? Do you believe that there’s nothing that can help you? If you’re tired of feeling anxious, if you’re tired of having panic attacks, or if you’re tired of avoiding things that you know can trigger you, then there’s something you should know: Johnson City anxiety therapy could help you.

Understand the type of anxiety you have

Anxiety disorder is an umbrella term that encompasses many different types of disorders. When your counselor can help you understand what term describes what you’re feeling, you may feel relieved to finally have a list of symptoms and to understand that it isn’t all in your head. Some common anxiety disorders include:

  • Panic disorders
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (often referred to as PTSD)
  • Generalized anxiety disorder
  • Social anxiety disorder
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder

While each of these is classified as an anxiety disorder, they each have their own symptoms and their own treatments.

Work with a professional who can walk you through your anxiety

There are many ways to treat anxiety. There are medications that can help but remember that they treat the symptoms of anxiety – they don’t actually treat the anxiety. A counselor at Thriveworks in Johnson City, TN can help you look back at your life and determine what’s causing your anxiety.

Often it’s a traumatic event that caused the brain to essentially get “stuck” in fight or flight mode. When your brain interprets certain situations as risky ones – even when they’re not risky – it will kick into a danger mode that can feel terrifying and cause people with anxiety to act irrationally.

There are many solutions to your anxiety

Just like there are several types of anxiety, there are also numerous solutions. At Thriveworks Johnson City Counseling & Coaching we’ll work directly with you to find the right solution for your unique needs. Some options may include learning how to care for yourself, exercising, reducing anxiety-causing substances like alcohol or caffeine, family counseling, or individual talk therapy.

No matter where you’re at today, Thriveworks in Johnson City, TN to partner with a mental health professional who can help you get to where you want to be tomorrow.

I have met with MJ ( Marissa) Jordan at the Johnson City,TN location for 5-6 sessions. My main issue is gaining understanding and knowledge of how and why I act the way I do, and what changes I need to make. Her ability to help me understand and change without feeling bad about myself is amazing! She uses enlightening personal examples that make it easy for me to comprehend. I am learning so much about how making a few positive changes will allow me to become a better person. I highly suggest MJ if you're looking for help with personal issues!
