Anxiety Counseling in Newark, DE—Counselors and Therapists

Can you recall a time when you felt uncontrollably worried? Say, about an upcoming annual review at work, a tough talk with your significant other, or maybe even a weigh-in at the gym? Consider:

  • Your boss sets a day and time for your annual review. You know that these are routine, but you can’t help but worry about his feedback and the result of the meeting.
  • You and your partner have been arguing about money—specifically, how much money you spend. You’ve set aside some time to talk about it tonight. You aren’t sure you’ll make it until then, you’re so anxious.
  • You’re in a 6-week workout program and it’s weigh-in day. You can’t focus at work because you’re too busy worrying about what the scale will say at the gym.

Can you relate to any of these examples? Do you experience anxiety at work, in your relationships, or in other areas of life? While some anxiety is normal and unavoidable, it can get out of control and hurt your wellbeing.

What Are the Signs and Symptoms of Anxiety?

Many find it hard to explain what anxiety feels like. It can be described as excessive or uncontrollable worry, but this simple definition doesn’t encompass all that comes with anxiety. Here are signs and symptoms, which paint a clearer picture of anxiety:

  • Racing thoughts
  • Irritability
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Sweaty palms
  • Fatigue
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Trembling or shaking

As you can see, anxiety comes with emotional and physical symptoms. Often, even with the presentation of several or more of these symptoms, an individual won’t recognize the presence of anxiety. In fact, many people mistake a panic attack for a heart attack! This makes understanding the symptoms above important. If you observe any combination of the above, talk to a medical professional and consider working with an anxiety counselor at Thriveworks Newark. These providers want to step in and make a meaningful difference in your life. They can help you to understand and manage these symptoms, as well as offer you support during this trying time. Additionally, they can offer a diagnosis, if you present symptoms of a specific anxiety disorder like generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety, panic disorder, and others.

How Might Anxiety Counseling Help Me?

The Thriveworks Newark anxiety counselors will look at your specific presentation of symptoms and then tailor counseling to best help you. They will help you to understand what might be causing your anxiety and develop a plan that will help you manage this excessive worry.

The anxiety counseling process often involves discussing negative thoughts and adapting a positive, more helpful way of thinking! Here’s a glimpse into this important conversation: If you demean or bully yourself every time you make a small mistake or don’t perform as well as you hoped, this could lead to anxiety in future endeavors. For example, you might be more likely to develop anxiety as your next big project nears. Your anxiety counselor can help you to understand the effects of negative thoughts and correct those thoughts.

Great scheduling team!

★★★★★
I called to make an appointment for my daughter and Kenyata was SO friendly and helpful. She answered all of my questions and was so easy to talk to. Scheduling as a first-time patient is always so difficult, but this was so easy and accomodating. If the scale is 1-5, 5 being the best, I'd give my experience a 10!

The right kind of help when I needed it

★★★★★
Dr Thompson provides great support and advice. She helped me through a rough time in my life and gave me the right kind of help when I needed it. I learned a ton about myself, cleaned up some past baggage that was weighing me down, and got my life back on track. I still use the skills she taught me in my relationships, at work, with my kids and I feel in control of my life. I’m not happy go lucky 100% of the time, but I’m much more relaxed and open and confident that I can handle whatever comes up. Big thanks to Dr Thompson!

Caring, competent therapists,

★★★★★
When Dr Thompson announced she was opening a Thriveworks office in Newark, I was thrilled. Over the past 20 years, I have referred many clients to Dr Thompson and found her to be sensitive, caring, ethical, and highly skilled with a wide range of clients. She was able to connect with folks who’ve had difficulty finding a good fit with other clinicians, and she seemed to know just the right approach with some of my clients who’d tried therapy in the past, but didn’t really feel at ease. Her compassion, experience, and excellent clinical skills make her my first choice when referring out; I would send my own family members to Dr Thompson.
