Anxiety Q & A

What are anxiety disorders?

Anxiety disorders affect over 40 million Americans, making them the most common mental health disorders in the United States. Anxiety disorders cause distressing thoughts, worries, and fears that affect your behavior and ability to function in your day-to-day life. 

There are several types of anxiety disorders, which are usually identified by their triggers. For example, fears of abandonment and loneliness can cause separation anxiety. 

However, generalized anxiety disorder, which causes nervousness about everyday issues and situations, is the most common type of anxiety.

You may have lived with an anxiety disorder since childhood, managing to get through your life, but never reaching your full potential. 

Even if you feel like anxiety is part of who you are, with therapy and support, you can recover and learn to live your life fully and without distressing and disproportionate fears.

When should I talk to a psychologist about anxiety?

Feeling nervous or anxious is a healthy and vital human emotion. After all, it’s part of your fight-or-flight response, which helps you avoid danger. However, anxiety disorders cause persistent, intrusive, and distressing worries that interfere with your life. 

Some of the signs that it’s time to contact Dr. Liner at Flux Psychology for help include:

  • Worrying about everything, even minor details
  • Feeling nervous all the time
  • Having a constant impending sense of doom
  • Irrational or unfounded fears
  • Frequent self-doubt
  • Feeling restless or on edge
  • Insomnia
  • Expecting the worst

You might also have physical symptoms like chronic indigestion, muscle tension, rapid heart rate, sweating, and trembling.

Anxiety can also trigger avoidance behaviors, which disrupt your ability to perform at work or school and interfere with your relationships.

How can therapy help me cope with anxiety?

At Flux Psychology, Dr. Liner provides compassionate, integrative psychotherapy to help you cope with anxiety. During your sessions, you explore your negative thoughts and fears and identify the underlying issues that contribute to your anxiety. 

Then, you learn how to identify the early warning signs of anxiety. As you learn to recognize negative and inaccurate thinking, you also learn to adapt your responses so that instead of being crippled by your fears, you take healthy and productive action.

If you’re ready to lead a fulfilling life without the constant presence of anxiety, call Flux Psychology or make an appointment online today.
