Feeling a certain level of anxiety over big stressors or certain life events is totally normal. However, if you find that your fear or worry does not go away and, in fact, gets worse over time, you may be suffering from an anxiety disorder. Mild anxiety is vague and unsettling and often passes quickly, while severe anxiety can seriously affect your day-to-day life. If you are finding your anxiety unmanageable, can’t identify the cause of your anxious feelings or if you are suffering from physical symptoms (such as heart palpations, fatigue, sweaty hands, upset stomach, or insomnia), it may be time to get help. Reach out to one of TherapyDen’s anxiety specialists today.

Anxiety robs us of our moments and keeps us stuck in "what if." I bring a gentle experience to guiding people through evidence-based practices. I use specialized advanced training in cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness based stress reduction, and motivational interviewing to advance the change process. I come from a trauma-informed background to help people re-voice and re-choice after experiences where they have felt powerless and unsafe.

— Karen Keys, Licensed Mental Health Counselor in New York, NY

You often worry about the future, or spend time replaying the past. Anxiety can show up in many ways - from difficulty sleeping, frequent worrying, irritability and often feeling guilty. It is exhausting to feel a lot of anxiety - I can help you find more balance.

— Sarah Barrett, Licensed Professional Counselor

Anxiety can look different for each person, from intrusive thoughts, to frequent worrying, to imagining the worst-case scenario, to avoidance and procrastination, to feeling short of breath, with sweaty palms and a racing heart (and even more possible symptoms than I have the space to name here). I have gained many tools in my years of experience in working with anxiety to support you, and the skills to adapt these tools to your particular experience of anxiety.

Teen anxiety affects practically every kid at one time or another. Being anxious before a big test or nervous on a first date is a normal part of growing up. However, there is a significant difference between a temporary phase of anxiety in teens and a real disorder.

Whoa, this has been a big one considering all we have been through, huh? Many of my therapy approaches not only explore anxiety symptoms, but we also work together to fund unique ways and skills to relieve you from anxious symptoms.

I help the individual understand the root of there anxiety. Once we figure out the trigger we can then use CBT techniques to help with the negative thoughts that affect your daily life. I use other approaches such as EMDR to help you understand your anxiety and how to process it.

— Kemi Alemoh, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in San Dimas, CA

Anxiety can overpower everything. Sometimes it's hard to even see through it, to see what's behind it. It can be overwhelming and exhausting. Perhaps you've already been in therapy and know all the tools, but they're just not working the same. I'd love to help you work through the fog and find deep healing, so you don't have to be exhausted by the anxiety or by working so hard to keep it at bay. I've worked with musicians, professionals, caregivers, students, parents, and more on anxiety relief.

— Crystalyn Jass Kirkpatrick, Licensed Professional Counselor in El Paso, TX

Anxiety is fear of the unknown or fear that something unfortunate will happen. How often does that comes up for us when we enter different phases in our lives? It can cause you to feel unsure of what to do next which is the cause of all the anxiety you may feel. It can be so overwhelming! I want to help you understand the direction you are meant to take by identifying emotions and working with them.

— Chardonnay Badchkam, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in , NY

Anxiety is rough especially when it starts to get in the way of the life you want to live. Therapy can help you learn more about your experience with anxiety to begin confronting your fears. We'll take a look at understanding the roots, challenging anxious thoughts, gradually confronting avoidance, learning self soothing tools, and addressing conflicts in your relationships in order to better manage your anxiety so you can get back to your life.

I am skilled in helping people learn how to better cope with the symptoms of their anxiety disorder, as well as address the underlying sources and cognitive patterns that contributed to the development of the anxiety disorder.

— Sonya Knudson, Psychologist

You can derive value from therapy for a lot of reasons such as personal growth, coming to new insights, or improving communication skills and relationships, etc. However, good treatment for anxiety is not insight-based. Many forms of anxiety do not respond to traditional talk therapy. Making progress often requires specialized, structured treatments that have been specifically developed for anxiety disorders.

— Dr. Luke Allen, Psychologist in Las Vegas, NV

Anxiety is a part of the fear spectrum, so together we’ll explore what you are afraid of and why. What are the obstacles that keep you from moving forward as you would like to? What are the worst-case scenarios that you imagine stand before you, and what makes them so terrible? How do you understand that in the context of your life? I’ll go down this road with you, and together we’ll find ways to work it out.

Anxiety is fairly common and absolutely treatable. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is often the first approach to bring quick relief. However, some individuals also benefit from a deeper look within to understand his or her symptoms. I have worked with generalized anxiety and individuals suffering from panic attacks.
