Anxiety Counseling in Tucson (East), AZ—Anxiety Counselors and Therapists

Racing thoughts, consistent overthinking, chronic worry, obsessiveness, dreaming up “what if” scenarios with disastrous outcomes, panic, dread, despair. These are the common features of anxiety. Anxiety is a part of the human body’s natural fight-or-flight response to danger or stress. It is often why, in certain situations that make you feel anxious, your heart rate increases, and your mind is crowded with urgent thoughts.

Feelings of anxiousness are a normal part of the human experience, but the persistence of anxiety can negatively disrupt a person’s daily life, leaving them unproductive and consistently unhappy. For people suffering from persistent or chronic anxiety, simple daily tasks, events, and interactions can prompt anxious feelings that cling to them for hours, leaving them feeling exhausted. Some people are just prone to it as a result of a family member passing it down through genetics. Early childhood trauma can set us up for anxiety for the rest of our lives. Many people find it hard to control persistent anxiety. Taking the step to understand that you may have anxiety is an important start.

Anxiety therapists at Thriveworks Tucson East have the expertise to help you tackle your anxiety issues. You can make a change for the better, Thriveworks Tucson East counselors can help. Call (520) 827-6372 to get the support you need now.

What Are the Symptoms of Anxiety?

Anxiety manifests itself in different ways.  It is important to be aware of the sources of your anxiousness. Anxiety is a form of stress that can affect your thoughts, feelings, behavior, as well as your physical well-being.

Below are the signs of anxiety that you might recognize:

  • Redundant worry that seems to always be present in your mind
  • Inventing worst-case scenarios to every type of situation
  • Thought obsessing
  • Becoming easily irritated or agitated
  • Easily fatigued
  • Trouble sleeping or constantly being asleep throughout the night
  • Stomachaches
  • Headaches
  • Muscle tension
  • Avoidance of situations that may cause anxiety
  • Trouble being still, or restlessness
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Panic Attacks

What Are Panic Attacks?

A panic attack is generally defined as an event that invokes severe fear. Panic attacks along with fear can result in psychological responses such as:

  • Intense, and heavy sweating
  • Tremors, or limbs shaking
  • Inability to breathe regularly
  • Increased heart beat that can be felt outside the body
  • Chest pain
  • Chills throughout the body
  • Feeling of Nausea
  • Stomach Cramping
  • Feeling of lightheadedness, or as if you might faint

It is important to note that panic attacks are striking, and usually come without warning. It can happen while you are grocery shopping, completing stressful tasks at work or school, or even exercising and they can last from moments to hours. Learning to manage the anxiety that has resulted in a panic attack is a key to moving forward.

Psychotherapist Kat Robey is simply the best!

Psychotherapist Kat Robey is simply the best! I’ve had the privilege of working with Kat as a service volunteer at a the Southeastern School for Behavioral Health conference annually since 2014. She has great energy & tremendous networking skills. Everyone at the event knows Kat, moreover, trusts that she has the capability & experience to proactively resolve any adversities before they even arise - given her tenure as a volunteer support staff member prior to becoming the oversight team lead, Kat’s unique blend personality & professionalism is exemplary for that particular role. I highly commend Kat Robey in her new business venture as she continues along in the helping field. I also know that no matter how, “busy,” life becomes, she’s the kind of human being who will create the time necessary to lend an ear & some careful guidance. Much love & respect your way, Kat Robey! Kudos & best wishes on this new venture... Namaste

The Kat I Know

I have been blessed to be Kat's neighbor for the past 4 years. We don't get to pick our neighbors, but if we did, I would pick Kat. In these years I have come to know her as a friend and not just a neighbor. It isn't often that people come in to your life whose light fills you up. Kat is one of the most loving, caring, and compassionate people I have ever known. She takes a genuine and deep interest in everyone she meets. When you are with her, you feel like there isn't anyone else in the room. I believe that anyone who works with Kat will come to know her like I have and that she will provide you with the guidance and tools you need.
