Do I Have Anxiety?
Anxiety is a common feeling for many of us, and it’s normal to be anxious every now and then. But when recurrent anxiety stands in the way of enjoying your life, then it’s helpful to consider whether counseling or therapy could help you start to improve your ability to function while coping with anxiety. In fact, by talking openly with one of our therapists, counselors, or psychiatrists at Thriveworks in Nampa, ID you’ll be able to share your concerns and experience with anxiety. Doing so will also help your provider to address your mental health needs with coping strategies and other treatment options designed for you.
Some of the common signs of recurrent anxiety include:
- Fatigue, difficulty sleeping
- Anger issues
- Decreased performance at work
- Racing thoughts, inability to concentrate
- Digestive problems
- And many other symptoms
What Type of Anxiety Could I Have?
Some of the anxiety disorders that our providers can help you to manage are:
- Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD): GAD causes anxiety in different scenarios, whether real or imagined. This disorder can be difficult to identify because it isn’t triggered by any single source of anxiety.
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD): This disorder often induces irrational thought loops, or impulses to perform random physical actions in repetition.
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD): PTSD, can occur in anyone that has been through a psychologically or physically painful event. Those who suffer from it are often privy to flashbacks to traumatic events, nightmares, and antisocial behavior.
- Social anxiety disorder: Social anxiety induces distress while engaging with other people. Everything from grocery runs to birthday parties can be cumbersome, fear-filled events.
- Panic disorder: Panic disorder can cause panic attacks. These physical episodes might result in dizziness, chest pain, vertigo, and nausea.
How Can Thriveworks Help Treat My Anxiety?
Our mental health professionals in Nampa, ID can offer you many different avenues through which to treat your anxiety. While many providers can help you to manage anxiety, they’ll do so in different ways. Therapists and psychologists primarily use talk therapy or behavioral therapy to achieve results. They’re a great way to:
- Help family members or partners understand their loved one’s anxiety through relationship therapy or family counseling
- Use talk therapy or behavioral therapy techniques to promote your self-awareness
- Work with clients to help them develop coping mechanisms to use in the situations that matter most
Psychiatrists, however, are medical doctors. Psychiatrists can prescribe medication to alleviate their client’s symptoms of anxiety, making the disorder easier to manage, in addition to providing therapy. Regardless of your provider type, we’re committed to offering you personalized mental health care.
