Therapy for Anxiety

“Anxiety’s like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but it doesn’t get you very far.”  ― Jodi Picoult

 

Anxiety is one of the most common mental health issues in the United States. At some point or another, we all experience some sort of anxiety – a worry, fear, uncomfortable feeling, or rumination. When it becomes overwhelming, uncontrollable, or interferes with our ability to get through everyday life, it’s time to get help.

Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based treatment option for most anxiety disorders. It involves looking at how we think about a situation, how we behave in response to our thoughts, and what we do about it.
