Anxiety Therapy

At Brighter Sky Counseling, we recognize that anxiety is more than just temporary stress or worry. It's a condition that can cast long shadows over your daily life, making even simple tasks feel daunting, overwhelming or impossible. However, we firmly believe that with the right support and treatment, everyone can rediscover the brightness in their lives and live with less anxiety.

Anxiety disorders encompass a variety of conditions marked by persistent and overwhelming anxiety and fear. These intense emotions can significantly disrupt daily life and are often misunderstood by those who haven't experienced them.

Symptoms of Anxiety Disorders:

  • Persistent, excessive worry or fear that's hard to control
  • Feelings of restlessness or being on-edge
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Elevated heart rate
  • Rapid breathing or hyperventilation
  • Sweating, trembling, or feeling weak
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Avoidance of potential anxiety triggers
