Anxiety Treatment

What Can Be Done About Anxiety?

Psychotherapy can assist in reducing the overall level, frequency, and intensity of the anxiety so that daily functioning is not impaired by helping to resolve the core conflict that is the source of the anxiety. In psychotherapy one can learn to enhance his or her ability to handle effectively the full variety of life’s anxieties.

Areas of focus in psychotherapy for anxiety relief can include:

  • Identifying major life conflicts from the past and present
  • Increase understanding of beliefs and messages that produce worry and anxiety
  • Verbalize insight into how past traumatic experiences are causing anxiety in present unrelated circumstances
