Anxiety Therapy & Counseling Services In Northwest Arkansas: Imagine if your days were no longer plagued by anxious thoughts or feelings of dread. How many times have you longed for the day when you didn’t have those feelings of heaviness or fear? When people are struggling with anxiety it can be isolating, sometimes even limiting. It can interfere with life and relationships. Anxiety counseling in Northwest Arkansas is available.

Our fears can sometimes protect us from threats, or help us notice something that just doesn’t feel right. However, many people experience anxiety and fear that seemingly stems from nothing. Some people cannot seem to stop worrying. Some experience fear or anxiety in response to something that appears harmless to others. Others have panic attacks regularly. Whether anxiety is like a constant noise or a flood of panic, there are effective treatments for anxiety. We have experience working with numerous types of anxiety issues, from generalized anxiety to panic attacks. (1)

Signs & Symptoms of Anxiety

  • Excessive worry. This is the low-level kind of anxiety that never seems to go away. Your brain is always asking ‘what if?’ and waiting for something to go wrong.
  • Worry that is difficult to control. If you can’t stop yourself from worrying, even when everything is going well, that can be a sign of anxiety.
  • Anxiety that interferes with life activities or responsibilities or relationships.  Anxiety can also interfere with your career if it stops you from speaking up in meetings, taking on an important project, or working well with colleagues.
  • Restlessness or feeling on edge. This is the kind of anxiety that won’t let you rest or relax. Sometimes this anxiety stops you from sleeping well.
  • Being easily fatigued. If you feel that you don’t have enough energy, get tired easily, or can’t seem to ever feel rested this could be due to anxiety.
  • Difficulty concentrating or your mind going blank. Anxiety can get in the way of focusing on tasks or concentrating on schoolwork.
  • Difficult falling asleep or staying asleep. When you can’t turn your mind ‘off’ and it worries excessively, they disrupts sleep patterns.
  • Feelings of intense fear or panic in situations that are objectively safe. This can be a generalized anxiety or a panic attack (see below for more information on panic attacks).
  • Fear or anxiety about social situations. Also called Social Anxiety, this is the type of intense worry that crops up when we meet new people, go to a social event, or have to make a presentation. Social Anxiety can be so paralyzing that it stops some people from making friends or having a romantic partner.
  • Tightness or heaviness in your chest or feeling a “pit in your stomach”.

What is a Panic Attack?

Often in Anxiety therapy or counseling we talk about panic attacks, what they are, and how to control them or make them stop. Panic Attacks can be common. Many people have one or two panic attacks in their lifetime. If you have them more regularly, this is usually a sign of an anxiety disorder that can be helped with therapy. Although panic attacks are not life-threatening or harmful to your body, they are very upsetting and can be scary. Sometimes they are so intense people feel like they are having a heart attack and will go the the emergency department.

Signs of a Panic Attack:

  • Sense of impending doom or danger
  • Fear of loss of control or death
  • Rapid, pounding heart rate
  • Sweating
  • Trembling or shaking
  • Shortness of breath or tightness in your throat
  • Chills
  • Hot flashes
  • Nausea
  • Abdominal cramping
  • Chest pain
  • Headache
  • Dizziness, lightheadedness or faintness
  • Numbness or tingling sensation
  • Feeling of unreality or detachment

What Does Anxiety Therapy Look Like?

You’re an individual, and deserve a completely customized approach to treat your anxiety. We meet you where you are. However, there are some common themes in Anxiety therapy. What we do in our office for anyone in Northwest Arkansas for anxiety often looks like this:

  • We work together to deeply understand your anxiety. Where does it likely come from? Does it run in your family? How does it manifest in your life? When is it at its worst?
  • We create a customized treatment plan and objective goals to reduce your anxiety. We want to know what success looks like to you. Maybe it is feeling more in control or having more peace.
  • We learn and perfect the most helpful and practical  tools for your anxiety. We know everyone is different and some coping tools work well for some, but not others. Our coping tools are always practical, accessible, and helpful for managing anxiety.

Anxiety is able to be treated very effectively with certain types of psychotherapy. You don’t have to keep struggling with anxiety any longer. We offer individualized treatment for your anxiety to deal with your specific needs, and bring relief.
