Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

Anxiety therapy helps people better understand and manage their anxiety. Anxiety therapists at Thriveworks in Cave Spring, VA can develop a treatment plan that will help you better manage your day-to-day anxiety or your anxiety disorder.

How does anxiety therapy work?

Anxiety therapy involves talking to a therapist about symptoms, potential causes, and more. Thriveworks Cave Spring therapists will then work with you to determine where your anxiety might stem from and teach you effective coping mechanisms.

How to deal with anxiety?

One of the best ways to deal with anxiety is to learn about your own anxiety: your symptoms, what triggers it, and what coping mechanisms have been effective in the past. When you learn what your anxiety is tied to, it can help you be mindful of what's really happening as well as prevent and mitigate symptoms by processing and working through the issue in therapy. Other strategies that have been shown to help manage anxiety are meditation, challenging anxious thoughts, exercising, and journaling.

Symptoms of anxiety

Common symptoms of anxiety include:

  • Sense of impending danger
  • Nervousness/restlessness
  • Trouble focusing
  • Excessive sweating
  • Shaking
  • Headaches
  • Stomach issues
  • Fatigue
  • Panic attacks
  • Increased heart rate

What is the best therapy for anxiety?

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) can be incredibly effective in treating anxiety and anxiety disorders. Other effective techniques include exposure therapy, Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and EMDR therapy.

Is anxiety therapy conducted in person or online?

Anxiety therapy is conducted both in person and online, depending on the individual's preferences and their therapist's availability. We suggest choosing the option that best suits your needs.

How long does anxiety therapy last?

On average, people can tend to attend 15 to 20 session of anxiety therapy (five or more months). However, this number is heavily dependent on the type of anxiety that's being treated and its severity, with many choosing to attend anxiety therapy for a longer period of time to ensure its effectiveness long-term.

Is therapy worth it for anxiety?

Yes, it is worth going to therapy for anxiety. If you are struggling with regular anxious thoughts and feelings that are affecting your day-to-day life or you suspect that you have an anxiety disorder, you should seek expert anxiety help.

Need more help deciding?

Anxiety and fear are common and affect more people than you may expect. However, we often have difficulty discerning between the two. Fear is generally a response to a real or perceived threat and is usually tied to something very specific. On the other hand, anxiety is typically characterized by the general feeling of continual worry or stress, and it’s usually difficult to pinpoint the source of this worry or anxiety on your own. Not only is anxiety common, but it’s normal. Almost everyone experiences anxiety at some point in their lives, but it is when anxiety becomes a constant presence in your life that it translates into a serious problem.

Anxiety has the potential to take a firm hold on your life, and can leave you feeling that it will never go away. The effects when anxiety creeps in at this level are numerous and often create both mental and physical problems. Unfortunately, the damage from anxiety doesn’t stop there; the physical and metal effects bring with them a negative impact on your interpersonal relationships as well.

Anxiety not only affects you, it affects those around you.

The struggle against anxiety can seem insurmountable, especially when you face it alone. Fortunately, the challenge becomes immensely more hopeful when you partner with a trained, caring professional anxiety counselor.

I was very pleased with our first visit. My son is not the easiest child to get to open up and Christine was very good with him and knew how to communicate with him effectively.

I had the pleasure of working with Chris in a professional capacity for 6 years, during which time he provided individual counseling for a number of children that I referred to him. Chris always demonstrated a sincere empathetic sensibility in his relationship with his clientele. He is keenly adept at providing the skills and guidance that allows others to pursue a self-actualizing understanding and awareness of themselves. He is a superb counselor.
