Therapy for Anxiety and Depression

We all get a little anxious sometimes – before an interview, when making a hard decision, or before stepping onto a stage – and it eventually fades away.

Anxiety is a natural response to stress. Some anxiety is normal and healthy – it is our body’s way of protecting us from harmful or overwhelming situations.

However, Anxiety becomes a problem when symptoms are severe, persistent, and impact daily life.

You may even have experience physical symptoms, like lightheadedness, trembling, sweating or nausea.

Experiencing disruptions in sleep, appetite, motivation, or energy? Feelings of sadness, hopelessness or thoughts of suicide? You may be experiencing symptoms of depression and psychotherapy can help.

Get the support you need

To the outside world, you’ve got everything under control. You are a working professional who likes to work with numbers or systems (because they don’t let you down). You are social, and fun in a crowd, you tell it like it is and want to hear it like it is. But on the inside, you never feel good enough, you worry about failure, and hold the weight of the world on your shoulders. There are days when you struggle to get through regular activities of life and even just to get out of bed.

You’re tired of feeling weighed down, hiding behind a mask and worrying about disappointing people around you. You’re exhausted of taking one step forward and two steps back, never getting ahead.

You want confidence, to finally let people in and get to know the real you. You dream of being able to enjoy the life you’ve worked so hard to create. You’re ready to feel carefree, good enough, and take control to advance in your life. You’re ready to discover the strongest person you can be with new ways to cope.

Therapy can help get you there! 

It all starts with the first step. Get in touch.
