Anxiety can take on many forms.

Anxiety is a normal response to stressful situations that cause fear or nervousness. Anxiety can appear at some point in everyone’s life, but those feelings are short-term and in response to a stressful situation.

Some forms of anxiety are more long-term and can impact a person mentally and physically. Most of our clients tell us about a persistent worry, a sense of doom, a chronic feeling of unease in their body, tension, or nervousness.

Sometimes, anxiety can begin in childhood, and at other times during adulthood, when a person experiences painful life events or stressful periods. Reexperiencing that event can occur when a situation triggers past experiences or stressful events.

For those experiencing persistent anxiety, therapy helps identify the underlying cause and provides suitable methods for overcoming those anxious feelings.
