Anxiety

We hear about anxiety so often in life today. 

In many instances, anxiety is utilized as a descriptor for nervousness.

Anxiety is the experience of an overwhelming fear of the future or possibly threat to safety. 

Anxiety can be very debilitating and most often does not come and go as easily as feeling 'nervous'.

Anxiety can be present in so many different areas in our lives.  There are multiple different anxiety disorders in the DSM-5 including generalized anxiety, phobias, social anxiety, OCD, and panic disorder. Anyone from young children to elderly adults can experience anxiety.  It can show up in many different ways including racing thoughts or rumination, low energy, body pain, hand or feet stims, shortness of breath, insomnia, racing heartbeat, dizziness, or even feelings of not being present. 

Anxiety can stem from our experiences as a child, trauma, our parents, and so many more.  There are many different types of therapies that can help to relieve anxiety.  Combating anxiety through mindfulness, self-compassion, and working through past experiences to understand what may be informing your current state is core to my approach.  Learning safety behaviors and understanding where anxiety may be rooted is essential to flow into a present state and feeling of safety.
