Looking for Anxiety Therapy in San Diego?
We Can Help.
Anxiety. The words “I’m anxious” get thrown around a lot. Rightfully so. Our society is basically telling us we need to have it all, be it all, and still find time to take care of ourselves without being selfish. That’s a confusing message! Today’s busy world with expectations, pressures, and timelines can cause symptoms of anxiety, both physical and mental/emotional. Maybe you’re feeling fatigued, maybe you feel that your heart beats faster than it should, or your palms are sweaty, or its difficult to catch your breath sometimes. Maybe you are feeling more tired than usual. These can all be physical symptoms of anxiety.
Maybe your symptoms are more recognizable in the mental/emotional state. Do you find yourself obsessing over certain things? Is it difficult to get certain thoughts out of your mind? Do you find it difficult to concentrate? Are you forgetting things? Are you in a constant state of worry? We don’t need to be formally diagnosed with an anxiety disorder to experience the symptoms of anxiety. Stress in itself has a very similar impact on our body and both can have an impact on our emotional and physical health.
Anxiety Therapy: What to Expect
If you are looking for anxiety therapy in San Diego, we can help. We work with you through both the physical and emotional/mental aspects of anxiety. We join you, in a safe relationship, to duplicate anxiety provoking situations, thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. In doing this, you can work through your anxiety in real life, in real time. We use aspects of Exposure Therapy, Somatic Healing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to help first build awareness over your anxious symptoms and then work to accept, change, and/or replace them.
Anxiety is a fear-based response. It serves as our brain and body’s way of protecting us. Through anxiety therapy San Diego at Connected, we will help you honor that within yourself. We will help you to recognize that while that fear is keeping you safe, it’s also keeping you stuck. Allow us to create the safety for you to explore your life in new ways.
