Sometimes the right guidance can make all the difference when it comes to anxiety management.
It’s normal to experience occasional anxiety as a part of life. For some, that can go away. But for others, the intrusive thoughts and overwhelming worries don’t seem to stop. Your anxiety may also include physical symptoms, like rapid heartbeat, dizziness, excessive sweating, nausea, or breathing difficulties. Experiencing anxiety at this scale can eventually interfere with school, work, social life, and your relationships. If you are experiencing these symptoms, you might require help with anxiety management.
If you’re concerned about managing your anxiety, you’re not alone. Many people require further help to better cope with anxiety. Our therapists specializing in anxiety disorders take a number of different approaches to anxiety management. Whatever the approach, these types of therapy are based on a belief that anxiety CAN be managed if not halted.
When confronted with anxiety or excessive worry, the natural, human thing to do is to try to stop it. At Eugene Therapy, our approach focuses on developing an authentic presence of mind, that seeks to conquer anxiety by giving into it. It may sound scary, but the secret to managing anxiety is to find ways to embrace it. By doing so, you might realize that you can likely manage it better than you give yourself credit.
Like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, we believe that you possess the “ruby slippers” or the ability to manage your anxiety better than you think. That said, we do realize that sometimes, people need an extra bit of help managing a crisis. The therapists at Eugene Therapy can give you helpful tools to manage the anxiety you experience in your everyday life. By also offering medication and psychiatric prescribing services at Eugene Therapy, we work to match the needs of all of our clients.
If you are experiencing anxiety, panic or symptoms of OCD, please request an appointment.
