Therapy for Anxiety

The intensity of everyday life builds. Chores to complete, bills to pay, deadlines to make. Pushing through your feelings of discomfort and worry may feel like the only option in a world that never stops. Overtime, the exhaustion of suppressing anxiety begins to feel as demanding as your full-time job.  

I feel anxious, but do I need to talk to someone?

In life’s difficult moments, the last thing you need to feel is alone. At BPC, we want to normalize the value in seeking anxiety treatment for anyone experiencing symptoms like:

Think of symptoms as signals. When you feel thirsty, you drink water. When you cannot see, you wear glasses. When you feel anxious…It’s not as straight forward. We are not always equipped to single-handedly meet the need of this signal. Trying to control anxious thoughts alone often feels like a dead end.  

If experiencing anxiety inhibits your enjoyment of life’s pleasures or throws extra hurdles into your already busy routine, counseling can help.

When you experience anxiety, you are, on a conscious or unconscious level, dealing with the body’s natural response to feeling unsafe. Your body’s survival instincts trigger the sympathetic nervous system’s fight or flight response.  

At Brittani Persha Counseling, we take a science-backed, bottom-up approach to helping our clients who struggle with their mental health. What do we mean by bottom-up? 

Taking research from psychiatrist and neuroscientist Dr. Bruce Perry, therapists at Brittani Persha Counseling understand that changing anxious thought patterns begins with a strong foundation for regulating the nervous system. The “bottom” parts of the brain, including the brainstem and midbrain, are like first responders in an emergency. Your counselor at BPC will work with you on strategies to regulate and calm the arousal you experience when these “first responders” fire off more than desired or needed. 

 Commonly used interventions might include: 

Additionally, counselors at BPC incorporate various evidence-based talk therapy modalities into treatment including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), exposure therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, attachment therapy, and more.

During weeks 2-4, you and your therapist will set goals for treatment and make plans to work towards them.
