Anxiety Therapy Houston, TX

What is anxiety? Isn't it just a natural part of life?

Feeling nervous or anxious when experiencing financial difficulty, making a significant life change, or when ask to give a presentation is common. However, frequent anxiety about everyday tasks such as housework, grocery shopping, and paying the bills takes a toll. Consequently, you may avoid people, situations, and things because they increase your anxiety.

Ignoring anxiety triggers does not treat their underlying cause. Instead, you may feel stuck, isolated, and depressed. Conversely, addressing your anxiety triggers and building on your strengths can prepare you to face and overcome uncomfortable, fearful feelings.

Anxiety therapy can help you get back to living life without feeling overwhelmed by a constant sense of worry. Our anxiety therapists can help you learn to cope with and let go of fears that are holding you back.

Symptoms of Anxiety:

While anxiety feels different for everyone, some of the symptoms often experienced include:

  • Feelings of nervousness, unease, fear, or panic despite no direct cause or of a higher intensity than the situation warrants
  • Avoidance of people, things, or situations because they invoke feelings of anxiety
  • Sleep disturbances (for example, insomnia and difficulty falling or staying asleep)
  • Headaches, backaches, or other aches and pains
  • Twitching, restlessness, inability to sit still
  • Muscle tension, tightness, and tingling, numbness of the hands or feet
  • Elevated heart rate, a "racing" pulse or pounding heart
  • Chest pains or tightness
  • Lightheadedness, dizziness, or nausea
  • Sweating, chills, or feeling flushed
  • Shortness of breath, shaking or trembling, choking, fear of dying
  • Feelings of unreality, of losing control or "going crazy"
  • Panic attacks: sudden, unexpected episodes of intense anxiety symptoms with physical and psychological manifestations

Types of Anxiety Disorders:

Generalized Anxiety Disorder:

Most of us have felt nervous or afraid at some point in our lives. Likewise, we struggle with life transitions, social situations, and the pressures of everyday life. However, excessive feelings of anxiety persisting longer than six months may indicate Generalized Anxiety Disorder.

Panic Disorder:

People with panic disorder experience heart-pounding terror that strikes suddenly without warning. Because they cannot predict when a panic attack will seize them, many individuals live in constant fear that another one could overcome them at any moment.

Symptoms of panic disorder include:

  • Quickened heartbeat
  • Abnormal sweating
  • Numbness or tingling sensations
  • Fear of losing control or "going crazy"
  • Trembling or shaking
  • Dizziness or faintness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain or discomfort
  • Nausea or abdominal pain
  • Chills or hot flashes
  • Derealization (feelings of unreality) or depersonalization (feeling detached from his or her self)
  • Persistent worry

Therapy for anxiety can help you overcome the fears that are holding you back.

When you’re tired of constantly feeling overwhelmed by anxiety and a sense of impending doom, it may be time to seek help.

Additionally, anxiety symptoms can disrupt your sleep and leave you feeling exhausted. If you constantly feel anxious and nervous and long for a few moments of peace, you may consider exploring options for anxiety therapy in Houston, TX. Our therapists can provide the support and guidance you need to manage and overcome your anxiety.
