North Little Rock, AR—Anxiety Counseling

Anxiety Therapy in North Little Rock, AR—Anxiety Therapists, Counselors

We all feel anxious every now and again—some more than others, but the majority of us have experienced that nervous, worried feeling. When the CEO walks into the office unannounced, when or your car starts making an unsettling noise while you’re driving down the highway. When your significant other says he or she “wants to talk,” or when you’re getting ready for a first date. But sometimes, this nervous, worried feeling isn’t mere worry—it’s a crippling fear. And it’s accompanied by other troubling feelings like panic, doom, and restlessness. Furthermore, it comes with out-of-control breathing or sweating. And your efforts to control it fail. Sometimes, it’s an anxiety disorder—which doesn’t just come and go within seconds. Instead, it requires asking for a little bit of help and seeking treatment.

“You are never strong enough that you don’t need help.” –Cesar Chavez

Diagnosing Anxiety: Signs and Symptoms

Anxiety disorders include generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder (social phobia), panic disorder, specific phobias, and others. Each disorder varies in symptom presentation, but the most common symptoms of anxiety, include:

  • Feeling extremely worried or nervous
  • Sense of impending danger or doom
  • Increased heart rate
  • Breathing rapidly
  • Trembling and/or sweating
  • Tiredness or fatigue
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Inability or difficulty controlling worry

As mentioned, these symptoms can vary in presentation. For example, if an individual has social anxiety disorder, their symptoms are rooted in and appear in social situations. Otherwise, they don’t typically experience these anxious feelings. Someone with generalized anxiety disorder, on the other hand, experiences anxiety about many events, even everyday activities and circumstances. Again, the good news is there is effective treatment out there for anxiety, whether someone’s dealing with social anxiety, generalized anxiety, or another form of anxiety. If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, consider working with a counselor at North Little Rock.

How Can Anxiety Counseling Help?

Anxiety counseling, like other forms of counseling, often depends on the individual’s symptoms, the severity of their disorder, and their goals for treatment. Once these are communicated and understood by the counselor, he or she will then design treatment to best help their client. Here’s how your anxiety counselor can work with and benefit you:

  • Counselors can help you identify and manage factors contributing to your anxiety.
  • They can teach you all about negative thoughts, of which are often a cause of anxiety.
  • Counselors can equip you with tools for reversing those thoughts and thinking positive thoughts instead.
  • They can also help you to change unhealthy habits or behaviors associated with your anxiety disorder.
  • Counselors can help you understand that whatever your mind and body have learned to fear is not threatening.
  • They will guide you in exposing yourself to situations or things that make you feel uncomfortable and anxious.

Again, your counselor will design treatment based on your presentation of symptoms and needs. Your sessions might involve working on the above and/or it might involve other tasks. In any case, rest assured that the counselors at Thriveworks North Little Rock have your best interest in mind and will do everything in their power to help you manage your anxiety.

THRIVE ALIVE is working on a project and it’s “ME” and she also has my “FFL” as a patient too. Let’s just say she is a little Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey wrapped in to one! I’m not telling you her name because I don’t want her to get booked and deprive me of my scheduled appointments. I’m just saying this woman is a “MIRACLE WORKER!” I got this CM!

Zack Is the BEST

I’ve known Zack, both professionally and personally, for the last 3 and a half years. He is a great person, and you won’t find anyone more dedicated to what they do. He truly cares about his patients and their outcomes, and he puts 110% of himself into his work to make sure they have the best outcomes possible. I consider myself lucky to have gotten the opportunity to work with him, and I know he will do great things now with Thriveworks.

I have known Dr. Caren Moore both personally and professionally for about 3 years. As a professional she sets the bar for those in her field and I've always been in awe of the level of care she provides to her patients.

Great Experience

Curtiss came and worked with several teenagers from our area and the response they gave me was excellent. He was energetic and spoke about topics on mental health that they needed to hear in a fun, friendly environment. Very grateful he came and helped us out.
