Midlothian, VA—Anxiety Counselors and Therapists

Midlothian, VA—Chesterfield Anxiety Counselors and Therapists

According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, 40 million adults experience anxiety each year. This accounts for general day to day anxiety as well as more specific anxiety disorders from social anxiety to panic disorder, agoraphobia, and many others. These differ in more ways than one, but they are all rooted in an excessive fear or worry. And they all come with potentially crippling effects.

These crippling effects include an inability to control the worry, irritability, difficulty focusing, muscle tension, and sleep problems. Additionally, those who struggle with anxiety often struggle to complete day to day tasks: going to work, joining friends for dinner, or leaving the house at all. In essence, anxiety can change life as you know it. But the good news is that there is effective treatment out there.

“The greatest weapon is our ability to

choose one thought over another.”

–William James

Do I Have an Anxiety Disorder? What Are the Symptoms?

As mentioned above, there are different kinds of anxiety disorders, which come with various symptoms. That said, generalized anxiety is the most common form of anxiety—those with this form of anxiety are anxious more days than not, for at least 6 months straight, about a variety of events. For example: someone who worries excessively about their job, health, and kids. These individuals often experience a combination of the following symptoms:

  • They can’t control their anxiety/excessive worrying
  • They feel restless or tire quickly
  • They have a hard time concentrating
  • They become irritable
  • They develop muscle tension
  • They have trouble sleeping

Many individuals grow frustrated, as they can’t or don’t understand why they feel so anxious. But the thing is that the cause is often unclear. It can have to do with biological factors as well as environmental factors. For example, one might be genetically prone to develop anxiety, or they might become anxious after experiencing an anxiety-provoking event.

In any case, an anxiety counselor at Thriveworks Midlothian in Chesterfield can help you get your anxiety under control. They will help you master techniques for managing anxious thoughts and responding well to anxiety-provoking situations.

How Does Anxiety Counseling Work?

Cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT, is a common and effective method of treatment for anxiety disorders. This approach focuses on changing negative thoughts and thinking patterns, which will help to reduce or improve anxiety. For instance, CBT can help someone with generalized anxiety to realize that worrying about work each day isn’t helpful. A CBT counselor can also help someone with a specific phobia (such as an intense fear of spiders) understand that they rarely come into contact with spiders—and when they do, the spiders are harmless.

Furthermore, your Thriveworks anxiety counselor can help you accept the following, which will supplement the work you complete in and outside of the therapy room:

  1. Worrying is normal. It’s important to recognize that we all worry—we worry about catching that flight on time, getting the kids ready for school, bombing that presentation at work, etc. Accept this reality, and you’ll find yourself relaxing soon enough.
  2. You have control. Sometimes, it’s hard to control our thoughts or think positive thoughts over the negative thoughts. However, we are able to do so if we put the work in. Your counselor will offer helpful tips for doing so, of which could include exercising, journaling, or practicing mindfulness.

Erica Stewart is so knowledge, caring and concerning when it comes to getting to the root cause of your situation. She is always patient and understanding. Erica gives you an opportunity to state your truth as she digs deeper into getting to know who you are so that she will best be able to help you. Erica has a heart of compassion and love. I would go to her for anything because I know once we have talked I will feel better about myself and my situation even if it has not completely been resolved. I can depend on Erica to be truthful and honest. She is always just a phone call away. I would recommend her to anyone that is going through anything and watch her walk with you through your issues until the two of you find a solution and if by chance she can't initially help you, she will research or reach out to find answers. She is very professional and confidentially is on the top of her list. You have a problem? Erica will help you find a solution. It may not be what you want to hear, but it will be what you need to hear. Go see her today. I encourage you.

Lauren Campbell has shown exceptional abilities as a clinical social worker in the Richmond area of Virginia.
