Anxiety Therapy

Why Does Anxiety Exist?

It's an essential part of human history. 

We no longer have to worry about getting attacked in our cave, but our fight-or-flight instinct is still an ingrained and essential part of our being. 


The anxiety you might be feeling – from indecision and apprehension to sweaty palms and tightness in your chest – comes from the same hormonal responses our ancestors felt when they saw something approaching them with sharp teeth. We are always on alert.

What Are The Different Types of Anxiety?

  • Generalized anxiety: We all worry sometimes, but you may find yourself paralyzed by indecision, obsessed with worst-case scenarios, or unable to relax enough to get to sleep at night.

  • Obsessive-compulsive thoughts: OCD isn’t just about keeping your desk neat and tidy. OCD can be repetitive behaviors or thoughts you engage in to neutralize, counteract, or make your obsessions go away – like fears of contamination, fears of acting on impulse, or perfectionism. With OCD, things have to be done in a way that feels just right.

  • Social anxiety: You may feel extreme self-consciousness at parties or feel dizzy venturing even by yourself into a public space like a mall. Others may see you as being shy, but your reaction to social situations may be so extreme it keeps you from going to work or visiting with your friends.

  • Panic disorder/ Panic Attacks: You may feel dizzy and sweaty. You may feel like you can’t breathe. You may feel your heart beating erratically. These episodes can be triggered by external events – or they may come on for no reason at all.

The Therapy Space Approach to Calming Anxiety

Anxiety treatment like therapy and counseling can help you live with your anxiety and develop coping mechanisms so you can live your day-to-day life.


We practice both cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT).


When a trigger is causing you anxiety, we can help you find the balance between your emotional mind and your rational mind to get to your wise mind, which will allow you to determine the reality of the situation.

Your counselor can help you acknowledge, reframe, and challenge your negative thoughts to help you reduce the stress and anxiety in your life.
