Excessive worrying

Worrying about things is as common as breathing. However, if you are finding that your worrying is excessive or you are worrying about things more that usual, it is time to get help. You may have always been a “worrier”, but perhaps something has changed in your life to cause it to increase. Things such as hormonal changes, major life transitions such as moving or job change, the birth of a child, death of a loved one, recent tragic news events, or an accident can cause anxiety to increase.

You may try to hide your worry from others or perhaps your significant other may suggest that you are worrying too much and say things such as “it will get better”, “you will be ok”, or “just suck it up.” However, if you have anxiety, you know that these suggestions, although well intended, are not helpful.

We understand exactly what you are going through and you are not alone. Decades of research on anxiety and excessive worrying have proven that anxiety is a result of chemical imbalances in the brain. Using the most widely used empirically-based treatment called Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), we have proven techniques that work (often without medication) to reduce anxiety and worrying so that it is no longer negatively impacting your life. Treatment is often short-term and immediately effective. There is no reason to wait to schedule an initial consultation appointment with one of our experts to see if Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy is the solution to you leading a happier and more content life.
