Do I Have an Anxiety Disorder?

There are several different anxiety disorders, but the most common form is generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). Those with GAD struggle with excessive worry or fear more often than not, for at least 6 months. They might also experience the following symptoms:

  • You struggle to control your anxious thoughts
  • You feel restless or fatigued
  • You find it difficult to concentrate
  • You display irritability
  • You struggle to fall or stay asleep

Anxiety can cause significant distress and impair important areas of your life, including your relationships or career. This makes seeking help crucial. If you are experiencing any of the symptoms above or symptoms of another anxiety disorder, reach out to Thriveworks Kennesaw. We want to help you live a happier, more successful life. And we can accomplish this mission by helping you to manage or control your anxiety.

How Does Anxiety Therapy Work?

Anxiety therapy varies on a case by case basis. Why? Because anxiety can vary, too! As we mentioned earlier, there are multiple anxiety disorders, each with unique symptoms, potential causes, and effects. We detailed GAD above; here are a couple other anxiety disorders:

  1. Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD): Generalized anxiety disorder is ongoing anxiety that interferes with daily functioning. Symptoms include constant worry, difficulty concentrating, and restlessness.
  2. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD): Obsessive compulsive disorder is characterized by excessive thoughts that drive one to engage in repetitive behaviors, or compulsions. Symptoms include ritualistic behavior, repetitive movements, and social isolation.
  3. Panic Disorder: Panic disorder is characterized by sudden feelings of terror or impending doom, even when the individual is in no real danger. Symptoms include fast heartbeat, chest pain, dizziness, and tingling hands.

Your treatment will be tailored to your specific anxiety disorder and your unique presentation of symptoms. For example, if you have OCD, your treatment needs to be different from someone who has GAD. The length of treatment can also vary from person to person, though for most, anxiety therapy is relatively short-term! To be more specific, the American Psychological Association (APA) reports that many people see significant improvement around the 8th or 10th therapy session.

Kelli Beechler

Let's talk about Kelli Beechler for a second! This woman is an absolute God send to me! If you don’t believe in God, well then let's just say the universe or regardless of whatever it is you actually believe in, she has been an absolute gift in my life! This is a woman who NEVER makes you feel like you are just a number or a paycheck to her! I feel so thankful to know her! I can't fully express in words, how blessed I feel to have her in my life but I'm going to try just for the sake of someone else who might need to know her could be reading this. She is someone who’s beyond kind and compassionate and caring! She always meets me exactly where I am, and there has never been a single time that I don’t feel better after a session with her. My sessions change my week, my life, and also keep me sane when things go crazy! It brings me comfort in remembering no matter how hard things feel I get to see her and she will do whatever is in her power to help me help myself! She never fails to remind me who I am in my core, or what I’m trying to accomplish, or how to lead with a level head and not my emotions based on what I’ve told her I'm trying to accomplish. She helps me stay focused, determined, and accountable. Her soul is one of the best I’ve ever seen! I have been in and out of therapy the better half of my life and I'm about to be 28. I have had all kinds of people and teachings and nothing compares to the relationship I’ve developed with this woman in just a few short months. I don’t feel like she’s just a counselor, I feel like she’s my friend! Kelli shows up for me in a way no one else in my life does! I feel like I can tell her anything without fear. It's always a judgement free zone! I feel like she always comes from a place of love and of service in her heart! She’s always teaching me new ways and tricks and tips that help me. I am going through a great deal of things in my life right now and I’ve got to say I don’t really know what I would do without this woman and her support! The role she plays in my life is so significant. There is something so special about knowing you can count on someone, and not just count on someone but have great advice. There is something huge to say when a person is choosing to show up for you when you need them most, and I just want to express that I have literally never ever felt like I was just a way for her to make money. When I think about Kelli I can't help but want to express how beautiful her soul is. She is such a special person and anyone who knows her knows she’s a gift; the kind of pure magic! Don’t believe me? Set up a session with her and find out for yourself!
