Anxiety Counseling – Counselors and Therapists in Tucson, AZ

Fear is a normal part of our human life and actually plays a vital role in helping us navigate it. It will warn us of danger with a tight feeling in our gut about a situation/relationship that could be destructive; send a signal through the body when we are not taking care of our physical health; go on full emotional and physical alert when it’s time to fight, flight or freeze. At it’s best; it helps us live more constructive lives by allowing us to avoid the pitfalls. For all that, we tip our hat to it.

When fear gets out of control, though, creating Chronic and/or Severe Anxiety, it becomes more like a pervasive, insistent cry that everything in life is a danger and protecting the self in each given moment is imperative. If you experience this, we know that it can be an excruciating experience. It can leave you feeling constantly raw and exposed to an unsafe world. This kind of anxiety takes a toll not only on the mind, but also the body, which was not designed to be on constant alert status.

  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Digestive issues
  • Sweaty palms
  • Restlessness
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Dizziness
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Dry mouth
  • More frequent urination
  • Experience of dread or avoidance of particular situations: social settings, being in the public/crowds/spotlight, new environments
  • Obsessive thinking
  • Anxiety/panic attacks

Eventually, this anxious state wears down many physical systems in our bodies, including immune, digestive, cardiovascular, hormonal and respiratory. Now, we feel anxious and physically weak…which in turn can produce more anxiety and difficulty focusing on any kind of solution. And, it becomes a cycle that’s hard to get out of.

At Thriveworks Tucson, we are committed to help you move out of that cycle and experience increasing moments of calm, presence & peace. We’ve seen these results when we blend awareness of the underlying cause(s) with structured modalities, tools and powerful practices, including:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Work
  • EMDR
  • Proactive ways to recalibrate your nervous system
  • Assessing physical ramifications & how to address them
  • Experiential work to release the past
  • Reframing
  • Redefining
  • Visualization
  • Mindfulness
  • Group support

As you read this, it’s estimated that over 18% of adults in the United States struggle with Anxiety Disorders. That means that 40 million people, in this country alone, are facing the same challenges everyday. If you are one of them, please know you are not alone and that help is closer then you think. It takes that first step to reach out. When you do, we will be there.

More than I hoped for

I initially went to Amy to help me manage my fear of flying, but before we could really tackle that, my relati...Read more

onship began to fall apart. My counseling sessions with Amy saved my sanity. I looked forward to being able to openly share my feelings and get tools to help manage my anxiety around flying and the loss of my relationship. Amy helped me get through one of the toughest times of my life. I wish we were still in the same state, so I could get "tune ups" when I get stressed out.
