Is Constant Worry Preventing You From Feeling Relaxed?

Are you having difficulty sleeping at night because your mind is reeling with worrisome, anxious thoughts? Do you struggle to maintain your relationships because overthinking causes you to feel insecure or untrusting? Does it feel like anxiety has taken control of where you go, what you do, and who you interact with?

Perhaps you feel overwhelmed by stress at your school or job. Maybe you struggle to concentrate because no matter how hard you try, you just can’t seem to quiet your racing thoughts. At face value, you seem to have life all figured out, but behind closed doors, your functionality and happiness are at the mercy of anxiety.

Symptoms Of Anxiety Disorders Show Up In Many Ways

With anxiety disorders, you may experience tearful or crying spells, a fast heartbeat, sweaty palms, GI issues, headaches, fatigue, or panic attacks. Or maybe a poor appetite and irregular sleep patterns are throwing off your daily routine.

In social settings, you may become more withdrawn and avoidant. And perhaps you never step outside your comfort zone because you're plagued by thoughts of how people may perceive you.

Some examples of anxiety disorders we frequently treat include:

  • Do you accept my insurance?
    In order to provide the highest quality therapy, our practice is not directly in-network with insurance, however, we work with a company called Mentaya Health, that will submit clients out-of-network claims for them. When you are eligible for reimbursement for sessions, you will directly receive a check in the mail from your insurance provider. We are also happy to provide you with a superbill, which you may submit to your insurance company directly for reimbursement. A superbill serves as a “receipt” of therapy sessions, and is very commonly accepted. We can answer any questions you may have in regards to Mentaya Health, or superbills.
  • I’m confused about my insurance coverage. Can you help answer my questions?
    We are happy to answer any questions about Mentaya submitting claims. You can also use our Mentaya Health widget above to verify your out-of-network therapy benefits within seconds. Since each client’s health insurance coverage is different based on your individual plan, it is easiest for clients to directly reach out to their insurance provider with questions regarding coverage. We find most phone calls for this take less than 10 minutes. Many insurance companies also offer the option to live chat with a representative, if you prefer not to call.

Everyone Experiences Anxiety To Some Extent

Anxiety is more common than most people think. Nearly everyone has faced it at some point in their life. In the majority of instances, anxiety is temporary and the body’s way of responding to an uneasy or stressful situation. For example, it’s normal for people to feel nervous about a big exam, work presentation, job interview, or having to give a speech on graduation day.

However, sometimes worry can become incessant and debilitating, and that is when anxiety can begin to negatively affect an individual’s quality of life.

Anxiety Is Often As A Result Of Societal Norms

Unfortunately, we are surrounded by an unhealthy amount of expectations and pressures. Many of us spend significant time on social media, caught up in a cycle of constant comparison to people we don’t even know.

Society demands that our personal and professional lives must be of a certain standard, and if we fail to live up to this standard, we are made to feel inadequate. This pressure to look and act a certain way is preventing us from being present and enjoying life as it is.

On top of that, since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, we were conditioned to fear other people and fear being outside our homes. The rules and regulations we abided by to protect our safety created hyper-vigilance and constant worry in many people’s lives.

If anxiety has been overshadowing your life, we want to help. Anxiety treatment with Elevation Behavioral Therapy can help ease your burden by pinpointing what may be triggering your symptoms, teaching you techniques to effectively manage them, and giving you peace of mind.

Anxiety Therapy Can Help You Feel At Peace

We understand discussing anxiety or uncomfortable experiences may be challenging, however, we are here to meet you with kindness, compassion, and understanding. Our therapists will provide a safe space where you can speak freely about your anxiety with zero judgment, allowing your experience with anxiety to be validated.

Anxiety Treatment Sessions – What to Expect

Our sessions will concentrate on teaching you awareness. Together with our licensed therapists, you will work on the core issues surrounding your anxiety, how you can prepare for triggers and cope effectively, and how to not avoid situations altogether that are anxiety-inducing. Our ultimate long-term goal is for you to no longer need therapy and be able to manage anxiety symptoms on your terms.

During sessions, you will also learn various cognitive and behavioral techniques that will help you manage stressors and increase emotional regulation and self-awareness. With the use of grounding and breathing exercises, you will learn to regulate your nervous system and interrupt negative thinking patterns.

Anxiety Treatment Approaches

Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) or ExRP, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) are the most common approaches we use in anxiety treatment.

Psychotherapy

Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP)

is a form of CBT based on the notion that anxiety is maintained by avoidance and safety-seeking behaviors. In ERP, you will learn to gradually confront feared stimuli while resisting the urge to engage in anxiety-driven behaviors.

In sessions, your therapist will work with you to identify specific triggers, and gently expose you to the feared stimulus in a controlled environment. In this way, you learn to tolerate the anxiety and become less sensitive to it. Over time, this leads to a reduction in the severity and frequency of anxiety symptoms.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

is used to help you develop new coping skills and a greater sense of control over anxiety symptoms. Through psychoeducation, cognitive restructuring, and relaxation techniques, CBT can help you identify and change negative or distorted thinking and behavioral patterns.

Therapy session

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

for anxiety focuses on helping you develop skills to manage your emotions and tolerate distress. The use of mindfulness techniques helps you to observe thoughts and emotions without becoming overwhelmed by them.

 

These tools involve practicing self-compassion and can show you how to identify and manage your emotions in a healthy way.

Our overall goal for treatment sessions is to help you drastically improve your anxiety symptoms, and regain control of your life and happiness.
