Anxiety Therapy in North Charleston, SC—Anxiety Therapists, Counselors

There are moments in life when we can’t help but overanalyze or hyper focus. For example, imagine that you’ve just applied for your dream home. You’ve handed over all of the required info, including your current residence, your employment history, references, social security number, and more. You’ve checked all of the boxes… yet you can’t help but worry about everything that might go wrong. “What if the leasing office doesn’t get the right info? What if I forgot to sign something? What if someone else, someone better, applies for this house?”

Our minds go into overdrive and it’s sometimes difficult to calm them back down. This is normal—however, it’s important to monitor your thoughts, as they can become uncontrollable and signify a problem. If you experience this anxious thinking more often than not or on a regular basis, you might have an anxiety problem on your hands.

“People become attached to their burdens sometimes more than the burdens are attached to them.” –George Bernard Shaw

What Are the Different Types of Anxiety? Anxiety Disorders

The primary anxiety disorder is generalized anxiety disorder, which explains the symptoms we have been discussing. That said, there are several other anxiety disorders, which are hyper focused on more specific circumstances. If you’re experiencing anxiety related to specific events or circumstances, you might have one of the following:

  1. Obsessive-compulsive disorder: OCD comes with persistent and unwanted thoughts as well as behaviors one can’t resist performing. For example, locking the door multiple times or checking that the oven has been turned off, even when the individual knows he or she has done so already.
  2. Social anxiety disorder: With this disorder, individuals feel anxious about social events and situations, from meeting new people to being the center of attention.
  3. Panic disorder: Panic disorder is characterized by panic attacks and a deep-rooted fear. One might experience serious physical symptoms like shortness of breath and a quickened pulse.
  4. Post-traumatic stress disorder: PTSD comes with anxious thoughts, feelings, and behaviors pertaining to a specific trauma, such as physical or mental abuse, the death of a loved one, or bullying. Symptoms include hypervigilance and flashbacks.

If you think you might have one of the above disorders, reach out to Thriveworks North Charleston as soon as you feel comfortable. We can help you get a hold on these disorders before they harm you further.

Emily Frichtl is amazing

I am a survivor of childhood trauma. I've struggled with depression most of my life. Emily Frichtl has helped me in so many ways. I felt safe with her and over time I learned to trust her, which was hard for me. I still have a lot of work to do in learning to live with the things I've been through but I wouldn't be in a more accepting head space without the work we've done. I highly recommend her.

I have worked with Jennifer Brown for a number of years and have found her to be caring, compassionate, and conscientious. She has an empathetic personality and truly cares for her clients and wants what is best for them. One of her greatest skills is her ability to ask "the right question" to help you find YOUR correct answer. Her support during the time my Mom was passing helped me get through a very difficult time. No hesitancy in recommending.
