Anxiety is one of the most pervasive mental health issues in the United States, yet women are twice as likely as men to be diagnosed with an anxiety disorder in their lifetime. This means women deserve special attention and personalized treatment plans designed to bring peace to their life.
Everyone experiences anxiety a bit differently. Some levels of anxiety equate to a diagnosable disorder, but most of the time anxiety is a normal response to a stressful environment, subpar self-care choices, and/or unproductive thinking patterns.
The most prevalent symptoms of anxiety include:
Feeling nervous, irritable, or like you're "walking on eggshells"
Having a sense of impending danger, panic or doom that is unexplainable
Having an increased heart rate
Breathing rapidly (hyperventilation), sweating, and/or trembling
Feeling weak and/or tired, even after getting a good night's sleep
Difficulty concentrating or focusing
Having trouble sleeping
Experiencing gastrointestinal (GI) problems like nausea, cramps, or constipation
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, or have been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, agoraphobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety, or specific phobias, integrative mental health counseling online can help you.
Our Approach to Anxiety Counseling
At Her Time, anxiety is treated with an integrative model that includes identifying symptoms, evaluating for a diagnosable (disorder such as generalized anxiety disorder), and providing referrals to medical providers who can assist in evaluating if the anxiety symptoms have a medical explanation, such as hyperthyroidism, substance misuse, heart disease, or respiratory disorders that mimic symptoms of anxiety. If your therapist and medical provider find that your anxiety is stemming from mental health issues, we use a mix of interventions from evidence-based modalities such as cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and exposure therapy to help reduce symptoms.
Therapy for anxiety at Her Time is individualized for each client, but will often include a combination of psychotherapy, guided behavior change, referrals to psychiatric medication evaluation, and/or referrals to complementary medicine providers such as acupuncturists, personal trainers, and holistic nutritionists. We believe in the body and minds ability to heal, and will exhaust life style changes, talk therapy, and functional medicine options before recommending clients consider anxiety prescriptions, as many of these medications can be addictive and come with a long list of negative side effects.
