People who suffer from generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) worry intensely about everyday incidences and circumstances that might not be a big deal to other individuals. Sure, it’s not unusual to feel anxious about life’s occurrences—such as your finances or job—at one time or another. But someone with GAD may agonize irrepressibly about their finances or job quite a few times a day for months on end. The person often knows that there’s no reason to worry, but he (or she) can’t restrain himself from it.
The therapists at the office of Mars & Venus Counseling Center want each patient to get the most out of life. They know that psychological issues can stand in the way of finding happiness and satisfaction. Your therapist will work with you to uncover the reasons behind the issues that are holding you back from being your best.
People with GAD worry despite the frustrating fact that they can’t pinpoint what they’re worried about. They live with a nebulous dread and are unable to quell those feelings of trepidation. This excessive, improbable fear scares them and can hold them back from daily activities and personal relationships.
Indications of GAD include insomnia, tense muscles, constant digestive problems, fatigue, trembling, a hard time concentrating, a short temper, a rapid heartbeat, and even neurological symptoms, such as numbness, tingling or prickling in various parts of the body.
Therapists can treat GAD with cognitive behavioral therapy. The goal is to alter the ways you think and behave. This method has proved successful in treating many people whose lives are hampered by anxiety. A therapist will teach you how to identify and manage your anxious feelings. The therapist will also tell you how to soothe yourself when thoughts that upset you start to surface.
At the office of Mars & Venus Counseling Center, we appreciate that every patient is unique. During your initial consultation, you’ll tell us about your goals. We’ll then evaluate your case and discuss any concerns you may have. We’re dedicated to delivering the results you expect.
