Did you know?

There are variations of anxiety disorders such as OCD, panic disorder, and PTSD. Women are twice as likely to experience anxiety than men, as their fight-or-flight response remains activated for longer periods. Anxiety disorders have a biological basis and can run in the family.

Anxiety can manifest in many ways, and it looks different from person to person. Some people suffering from anxiety may feel most anxious in specific environments, like social situations or in public places. Others may struggle most with constant worry which they find difficult to control about a long list of possible negative outcomes. Some suffer from specific phobias that make it difficult to function in their daily lives. Others suffer from recurrent panic attacks which ultimately leave them in constant fear of the next attack.

Treatment for anxiety often includes learning effective relaxation strategies to calm the tension often associated with anxiety. You will also learn strategies for managing worry so you can be present and focus on the here-and-now.

Beyond being a resource for learning helpful strategies, counseling provides a safe and comforting space to speak freely about your worries and fears without judgment. Anxiety counselors at Great Lakes Psychology Group in Grand Rapids are trained and experienced in helping their clients overcome their challenges with anxiety so they can reclaim their joy.
