Anxiety & Stress

Anxiety can be a stifling and confusing feeling for anyone; leaving you feeling like you are not sure what to do next. Anxiety can affect your thoughts, emotions, and physical body. Coping with anxiety can leave you feeling exhausted both physically and mentally. We see people coping with anxiety who are struggling with:

  • Physical symptoms such as headaches, muscle tension, stomach pain, sleep disturbance
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Feeling overwhelmed and unsure of what to do next
  • Decreased concentration and focus on tasks or everyday activities
  • Anxiety attacks/panic attacks
  • Feeling “frozen” and unable to make decisions
  • Isolation or fear of social situations
  • Decreased ability to function at work or home life
  • Irritability, anger, or depression
  • Chronic worry, stress, or preoccupation
  • Numbing or addictive behaviors to cope with anxiety

Therapy Can Help

In the midst of dealing with symptoms of anxiety it can help to have a compassionate and knowledgeable professional to guide the way. Working with someone who understands anxiety can assist with decreasing symptoms and help move forward with healing.

A Journeys therapist is trained in assessing symptoms, addressing coping strategies, and talking through deeper issues that may be connected to anxiety.  If necessary, Journeys therapists are also aware of when it might be helpful to consult a medical professional for possible medication. Our team approach will help ensure that you find the therapist who is the best fit for you. Whether the anxiety is related to current life situations or connected to past issues, therapy can help you to address the symptoms so you can heal.


“I’m afraid talking about my problems will make me even more anxious”

Anxiety that is not addressed generally tends to get worse. We understand talking about your problems may seem difficult, but together you and your therapist will set goals and decide on how to move forward. Journeys therapists are trained in many different treatment options such as: processing, coping skills, relaxation techniques, cognitive behavioral techniques, creative/artistic interventions, EMDR, and addressing here and now situations as well as past issues. Working through your anxiety can bring relief and give you skills to utilize long after treatment is over.

We generally recommend scheduling a specialized assessment with a trusted Journeys counselor to evaluate what your specific needs are, as well as determining best the options for treatment and more precise answers to the questions you may have about the process. The Journeys team strives to provide you with the best fit professionally, and will happily direct you to the counselor with the best personality, expertise and approach for your family.
