It is natural for everyone to feel sad, anxious or stressed out for a day or two after something unpleasant happens in their lives. These emotions are just temporary and one of the ways that our body and mind protects us from thinking about unwanted memories. But if these feelings of anxiety, sadness or stress persist for more than two weeks, it means you are experiencing symptoms of clinical depression. Therapy can help!
It’s common to feel nervous or worried during stressful situations. However, individuals living with anxiety experience feelings of nervousness, worry, and even panic. When these feelings become overwhelming, they can impair an individual’s ability to function at work, school, or social situations and even impact physical health. If you feel like anxiety might be impacting you, don’t hesitate to reach out to a therapist for help! Contact me now for a complimentary 15-minute phone consultation!
