Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

Anxiety therapy helps people better understand and manage their anxiety. Anxiety therapists at Thriveworks in Tigard, OR 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 Tigard 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 can be a beneficial survival element in the human psyche, but not if you let it control you. Anxiety is a spectrum. On one end it can be a normal, healthy reaction to stress. On the other end it can cause a person to become overwhelmed by fear and worry, virtually paralyzing them and preventing them from performing basic functions. But no matter where your anxiety falls on the spectrum, it’s good to have a healthy relationship with your stressful feelings. And that’s where anxiety therapy can help.

The anxiety therapists at Thriveworks in Tigard, OR specialize in diagnosing, treating, and helping prevent anxiety disorders. They can help clients manage social anxiety, specific phobias like agoraphobia, panic attacks, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD), and more. They support clients with debilitating anxiety symptoms and clients who feel pretty good most of the time, but just have a few problem areas and want to learn deep breathing techniques. At Thriveworks in Tigard, OR, anxiety therapists treat their clients with compassion, insight, and the wealth of knowledge that comes from many years of experience at the top of their field. 

What Are the Symptoms of Anxiety?

Anxiety can manifest in a number of physical, behavioral, and emotional ways. In children anxiety can show up as bedwetting, fear of the dark, or fear of strangers. Anxious teenagers might have unexplained outbursts or stop going to school. Adults with anxiety may notice any of the following symptoms:

How Do I Stop a Panic Attack?

The best way to stop panic attacks is to never have them in the first place. Anxiety therapists at Thriveworks in Tigard, OR can work with clients with panic disorder to prevent panic attacks from occurring. But if you do find yourself in the midst of a panic attack, experts recommend the following techniques:

  1. Breathe deeply to send a signal to your mind that your body isn’t threatened
  2. Consciously recognize what’s happening, i.e., you’re just experiencing a panic attack, not dying
  3. Find an object to focus on
  4. Repeat a mantra like, “Everything is okay.”

If you suffer from panic attacks, you’re not alone. Many celebrities have even spoken up in recent years about their frightening experiences with panic attacks. A-list singers might need to throw up backstage before performing. They may start hyperventilating and want to cancel concerts. Celebrities like Ariana Grande and Travis Barker, who have been through traumatic events (a bombing and a plane crash, respectively), have been professionally treated for panic attacks.
