What Is Anxiety Therapy? 

Anxiety therapy works to treat the symptoms of these conditions—symptoms that can often affect multiple aspects of daily life in a negative manner. The following are some of the effects that both depression counseling and anxiety therapy can treat:

  • Hypersomnia or insomnia: Difficulties surrounding sleep are a common effect of anxiety and depression.
  • Fatigue: Fighting depression and anxiety can deplete people’s energy, leaving little space in their lives for anything else.
  • Difficulty focusing: Negative thoughts often accompany depression and anxiety. These thoughts can capture people’s focus and make focusing upon what matters more difficult. 
  • Disrupted eating habits: Many people experience disrupted appetite, taste buds, and eating habits as they experience anxiety and depression. As with sleep, people can experience an increase or a decrease in appetite.
  • Indecisiveness – Making decisions while battling anxiety and depression can take a herculean effort. Even small choices, like where to eat or what to wear, can overwhelm people.

Depression counselors and anxiety therapists may use a myriad of different therapeutic approaches in order to help clients work through their challenges. Some of the most common include:

I started with Dr. Maddy about 3 months ago and I think that I had my last appointment last Friday,1/12. I really enjoyed talking to her. She is very down to earth and, most of all, she listens. I told her some things a few months ago and she remembered when I was talking with her on Friday. Amazing. We talked about a lot of issues, among them, what would I be working on, my certain issues. I would very heartedly recommend her. I can’t say enough kind words about her.
