Anxiety disorders have become the most prevalent psychological disorders in the United States, affecting roughly one-third of the population (NIH, 2018). Anxiety disorders – including panic disorder, agoraphobia, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder and specific phobias – are more common among women than men, and in terms of age, prevalence rates are highest during mid-life.
Some common signs and symptoms of anxiety include:
Feeling nervous, restless or tense
Experiencing a sense of impending danger, panic or doom
Increased heart rate
Rapid breathing (hyperventilation)
Trembling or tingling sensation
Feeling weak or tired
Difficulty concentrating and inability to focus and complete tasks
Obsessive, racing thoughts about your worries
Experiencing gastrointestinal (GI) problems
Difficulty controlling worry
Avoidance of anything that triggers anxiety
You Can Gain Control Over Your Anxiety.
If you’re experiencing symptoms of anxiety, you’ve come to the right place. I’ve helped countless clients manage their anxiety and break out of the prison of their minds.
But you might be asking…
“I’ve tried therapy, medication, all kinds of treatment and I still can’t get relief from my anxiety. What makes Humble Warrior Therapy’s approach different?”
Humble Warrior Therapy uses an integrative, holistic, mind-body approach to therapy. Counseling at Humble Warrior Therapy isn’t your standard clinical “talk therapy”; it’s so much more. I use a highly educational, directive teaching approach to therapy, and pull in as many resources as you may need to help you learn a new way of relating to your emotions. Through media such as TEDtalks and books, and tools including guided meditation, “walk-and-talks” and yoga, I incorporate as many different mind-body-spirit techniques and tools that you might need, always working to find the most relevant, effective and custom-tailored therapy program for you.
Anxiety is affected by numerous factors, including your diet, exercise habits and sleep. In addition to working with the mind, I also assess your body and spirit: including what foods and supplements you take, how socially connected you feel and if you’re satisfied with your spiritual/religious life.
