Anxiety

AnxietyDo you find yourself constantly worrying about the future or find that your anxiety is getting in the way of your day-to-day life?

 

Anxiety and nervousness are natural emotions that usually occur in response to a stressful situation such as an upcoming challenge at work or a problem with your family.  Experiencing occasional feelings of anxiety is perfectly normal and healthy.

 

Anxiety Disorders

However, anxiety becomes a problem when it interferes with your ability to function in your life.  If this is the case for you, you may have an anxiety disorder.  Anxiety disorders take many different forms, including:

 

  • Panic Disorder:  This may describe you, if you have feelings of fear or terror that come on suddenly and repeatedly.  This attacks may come with physical symptoms or feeling of “choking.”
  • Social Anxiety Disorder:  If you feel overly self-conscious or afraid of being judged or ridiculed in social situations, you may have social anxiety disorder. 
  • Phobias:  A phobia is an intense fear of a particular thing or situation such as spiders, small spaces, or flying.
  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder:  This occurs when you experience excessive worry, fear, or anxiety without any specific cause or reason

 

Dealing with Anxiety

If you are unable to cope with your anxiety or would like to learn new tools to deal with it, I am here to help. 

 

I believe in a holistic approach to therapy and avoid using medications whenever possible.  Medications have limited ability to help deal with anxiety and often the side effects leave you feeling emotional dead and outweigh the benefits. 

 

When you work with me, we will use non-medical methods of coping with your anxiety whenever possible.  If you are currently taking medication and would like to stop, I can help you do that.  Through our work together, you will learn to effectively deal with your anxiety so that you can continue to lead a fulfilling and productive life.

I look forward to working with you.

 

All the Best,

Dr. Wayne Carr
