Anxiety is an emotion that lets us know something has happened to frighten us. If you experience anxiety often or intensely, you are likely looking for relief.
You may know that there are both healthy and unhealthy coping strategies and some that only help in the short run, and others that are long term solutions.
Sometimes when the waves of anxiety come crashing down, it is difficult to know which healthy path to choose. Consistent anxiety therapy can help to provide stability when these feelings hit and provide alternatives to the addictive or compulsive behaviors that can perpetuate the anxiety.
Anxiety, stress, and fear can also be tied to past trauma, and talking with a good therapist or psychologist can help you understand how your past is impacting how you feel today.
