    Anxiety Therapy in Minneapolis

    Providing relief to your anxiety & stress in Minneapolis – Saint Paul, Minnesota

    In today’s society, we have so many different things to worry about or pressures we have to be living up to. It is quite easy to spend day after day worrying about:

    • All the things that have to get done
    • All the potential things that could go wrong or worst case scenarios that could happen
    • The well being of ourselves and loved ones
    • Am I keeping up with everyone else or the expectations that others have set?
    • How am I going to handle the next set back?
    • How am I going to address my fears?
    • When am I going to get time to take care of my own needs?

    The many pressures in the world can lead to perpetual feelings of stress & anxiety. Our bodies are constantly in a state of “fight or flight” in order to survive. This can wear out our brain & bodies ability to thrive.

    The symptoms of anxiety look like:

    • Nervousness, restlessness, or being tense
    • Feelings of danger, panic, or dread
    • Rapid breathing or hyperventilation
    • Increased or heavy sweating
    • Trembling or muscle twitching
    • Weakness or lethargy
    • Persistent thoughts of worry
    • Difficulty focusing or thinking clearly about anything other than the thing you’re worried about
    • Insomnia
    • Irritability or easily set off with relationships
    • Wanting to withdraw or avoid stressors

    If you are struggling with anxiety or stress, I’m confident I can help. I offer the most researched & effective forms of psychotherapy, to get the relief that you deserve.

    When it comes to treating anxiety and stress related concerns, research shows that Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is usually the most effective option. That’s because psychotherapy – as opposed to just medication alone – treats more than just symptoms of the problem.

    What does Therapy for Anxiety & Stress look like?

    Psychotherapy can help to uncover the underlying causes of your worries, fears, & stressors. My approach in therapy involves building strength & resources for managing stressors, developing solutions oriented thinking, how to lower the feelings of anxiety or stress in the moment and how to address thoughts related to core fears & concerns. You will be given exercises from week to week that help your brain change how it processes stress. The process of therapy can help shift all that energy from worry into confidence.

    Most quick fix options in life disappoint. Just as in physical therapy a person must do the proper exercises to heal the muscle; psychotherapy consists of doing the right exercises for the brain to be able to handle the anxiety and stress more effectively.

    If you are ready to start feeling an improved sense of well being, I invite you to contact me today for a consultation to see if I would be a good fit for helping you have greater control over anxiety or stress in your life. I am passionate about helping people move from fear towards a more abundant life.

    Anxiety Therapy FAQs

    When is Anxiety Therapy in Minneapolis needed?

    Just like an athlete would need to complete physical therapy in order to heal an injury and perform well in a game; psychotherapy is needed when anxiety is impacting how well you can perform in key areas of your life (work, family, education). 

    How long does the Anxiety Therapy process take?

    This is really dependent upon how severe is the impact of anxiety and how consistently are the exercises we do in session completed. We need at least a couple of months at minimum to see the effects of the process. We can then evaluate from month to month how many sessions are needed. 

    How do I know if Anxiety Therapy is right for me?

    I am glad to do an intro call or consultation before scheduling. We can go over the approach, what is offered, answer any questions or concerns you have. I will give as much information as possible for you to help with your decision.
