Anxiety Therapy in Woodbridge, VA—Anxiety Therapists, Counselors, and Psychologists

Worry is a normal part of human existence. The nightly news gives us plenty to worry about on a daily basis. Our children, aging parents, our health, our jobs, financial concerns, the safety of ourselves and our loved ones, war, political concerns; the list could go on indefinitely of things that are worth our worry. However, sometimes this worry becomes excessive and uncontrollable—better known as anxiety. It can take over our lives and make daily functioning difficult. When this happens, we can benefit from the help of trusted professionals to work through these anxiety issues and regain control of our emotions and feelings.

We have trained professionals who are experts in their field and available to help as soon as today or tomorrow. Call us now to book your session!

Anxiety Disorders and Issues

There are many anxiety disorders, all of which can vary on an individual basis. For example, there are many different potential causes of anxiety. Further, they can manifest as panic attacks, obsessive compulsive tendencies, or the inability to complete daily tasks. These disorders can develop at any point in life, which means that all ages can experience anxiety issues.

The list of anxiety disorders includes:

  • School phobia (particularly in children)
  • Generalized anxiety disorder
  • Social anxiety
  • Phobias
  • Panic disorder
  • Agoraphobia (fear of specific places or situations)
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Separation Anxiety

Again, these disorders vary in severity and frequency of symptoms. Generalized anxiety, as well as full panic attacks, can make healthy living very difficult. You may have been dealing with these anxiety issues for many years, or they may have come on suddenly. Know that you do not have to deal with these issues alone. Thriveworks anxiety therapists in Woodbridge, VA are here to help.

Answers to my prayers

Johanna Lee has been my therapist for the past 7 months and I am extremely pleased with her! She is very professional and goes above and beyond to meet my needs. Thriveworks makes the whole process easy because I can text them to solve any issues I’m having.

Discerning & Thoughtful

I mentored Sharon in her master’s and doctoral studies where I found her to be thoughtful and discerning. She always generated a sincere sense of passion as her desire was not just to obtain degrees but to build the skills and knowledge base to support people within her community. Transparent in all her interactions with me and fellow students, she was unapologetically true to Biblical standards as the foundation of her interactions with others. I am confident that she will continue to be a thoughtful and wise counselor to all who seek her guidance and compassion.

People Person

Sharon is the epitome of integrity. She operates in humility and truth. She embodies what I call the three Cs: Caring, Considerate, and Compassionate. She sees you, hears you, and listens attentively and intuitively to your concerns. Her advice is sound and non-judgmental. Sharon's quiet, calm, and peaceful spirit puts you at ease, and makes you feel comfortable. I often seek her advice when life becomes difficult. I highly recommend Sharon for those that are broken, and in need of much healing and inner peace.
