Therapy for Anxiety
Are you avoiding situations that make you more anxious? Do others tell you that you worry too much or that you’re too hard on yourself? Do you believe that you can live a more enriched life if you were less anxious? According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, 40 million adults, or 18% of Americans, experience an anxiety disorder. The good news is that there is help to treat anxiety. While it’s true that some people are naturally less comfortable with uncertainty and risk, experiencing ongoing heightened levels of anxiety is not necessary.
Finding the right anxiety therapist can be challenging. Anxiety counseling with Dr. Shah provides you with the knowledge and skills to face challenges so you can move towards a more fulfilling life. There are several different types of anxiety disorders, and treatment may take a different focus for each. Understanding when and how your anxiety comes up is important in learning how to manage it.
Finding an Anxiety therapist in Atlanta
Finding the right therapist for anxiety can be challenging whether you live in Midtown, Buckhead, or metro Atlanta. Dr. Shah focuses on your whole story, the challenges you might be facing, and the strengths you can use to overcome them. Treatment for anxiety does not need to be long-lasting or require in-depth analysis. Cognitive behavioral therapy, positive coping skills, stress management, and mindfulness can be effective techniques that can be learned relatively quickly in therapy with Dr. Shah and applied to manage and overcome stressful circumstances. In certain cases, if anxiety has been long-standing, it may be necessary to uncover the origin of anxious thoughts and examine the factors that led to the current challenges you are facing.
