Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

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

When you have a big presentation, test, or occasion looming on the horizon, you might feel nervous or stressed, even if it’s nerves of excitement or anticipation. Anxiety is your body’s natural response to stress, and it’s how your brain and body prepare for the near future.

It’s normal, even healthy, to feel stressed or anxious about some things in life. But for people with an anxiety disorder, their stress response might be too intense, or those feelings just don’t go away. Anxiety disorders can create a constant barrage of stress, fear, or worry that are unexplained or way out of proportion for the situation someone is facing.

Anxiety is an extremely common mental health issue but is not a condition that should be ignored or swept under the rug. Severe anxiety can change the way you think and feel and can have a serious impact on your life.

Fortunately, even the most severe anxiety disorders can be managed and overcome with the help of a therapist or counselor. Therapy for anxiety at Thriveworks in Loveland, CO, can help you understand your condition and give you the tools to cope with your anxiety.

Recognizing Common Causes and Types of Anxiety

Anxiety can come in many forms with a wide range of physiological and psychological symptoms. While the exact cause of anxiety is not fully understood, it is likely influenced by a complex interaction of biological and environmental factors.

Genetics, past experiences, and hormonal changes might all contribute to anxiety. While anxiety affects everyone differently, some forms of anxiety present themselves in a similar way that makes them more easily identifiable.

Some common forms of anxiety include:

  • Social anxiety disorder: This involves feelings of embarrassment, self-consciousness, and a fear of being judged by others. This can also lead to high levels of anxiety and avoidance of social situations.
  • Separation anxiety disorder: This is most common in children and relates to excessive fear of being separated from parents or other loved ones, places, or objects.
  • Phobia disorders: These are characterized by extreme fear, anxiety, or panic when presented with a certain object or situation. Phobias range from annoying to severe and can have a major impact on someone’s life.
  • Panic disorder: People with a panic disorder experience panic attacks, which are frequent episodes of extreme anxiety, fear, terror, or a sense of impending doom. Hyperventilation, heart palpitations, and dizziness are also common. Panic attacks can be intense, so people with panic disorder might spend a lot of time and effort trying to avoid them.
  • Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD): GAD may appear on its own, but it often accompanies other anxiety disorders and is marked by excessive or persistent worry about ordinary activities or events.

Because anxiety manifests very differently from one person to the next, there is no textbook set of symptoms to consider. This makes recognizing and diagnosing anxiety difficult to do without the help of a mental health professional.

A therapist or counselor at Thriveworks in Loveland, CO, can help you determine what form of anxiety you may be experiencing and guide you through understanding, coping with, and managing your symptoms.

What Can I Expect From Anxiety Therapy?

Treating anxiety is a highly personalized and often multifaceted experience. Once your therapist can determine the type or cause of your anxiety, they will create a unique treatment plan built around your specific concerns, issues, and experiences. Your treatment plan will likely include a combination of therapies, prescription medication, or a mix of multiple treatment modalities.

Anxiety counseling often includes one or more types of talk therapy. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a common form of talk therapy used to treat anxiety disorders and it teaches you how to reduce anxiety, cope with anxiety symptoms, and manage your condition. Interpersonal therapy and exposure therapy can also be particularly helpful in helping you accept and overcome specific sources of anxiety or fear.

When you are ready to regain control of your mental health and overcome your anxiety, Thriveworks in Loveland, CO, is prepared to help. We can often accommodate new clients within 24 to 48 hours and accept many different insurance plans.

I am very happy to offer my highest recommendations for a therapist working with the community at Thriveworks. Here is an example of what it is like to be in Linda Armendariz’s care. We had a family session with Linda. She spoke with each of us beforehand, to have a clear understanding of what each person hoped to accomplish. She was a calming presence throughout our session, gently bringing us back to the issues we wanted to address and helping us hear what was being said. Our common goal was to really understand each other and to be heard. As parents we wanted to support our adult son without enabling him, showing high expectations with a lot of warmth. We were mostly struggling with boundaries, which was confusing to him. In the end we came to a very clear and actionable plan with goals and dates. We each had assignments that we could accomplish. It was agreed that we would work together, openly. We agreed to communicate as a group moving forward. Respect has been key. Linda models what she says. She is intuitive and to the point, so time is used wisely. I believe that anyone who gets to work with Linda will grow steadily!
