Anxiety Treatment Services:
Assessing and Finding the Right Treatment Plan

Dealing with anxiety can impact your day to day life. Changing the way we interact with the world as well as the people within it. While it is normal to feel anxious at times, it isn’t normal to feel this way to the point that we are overwhelmed. Fortunately, anxiety can be treated so that you can live your daily life.

Help Overcoming Anxiety

Anxiety is a challenge that can be improved and in some cases eliminated. With the help of a professional therapist, it can be managed. A therapist can employ a variety of tactics to help ease anxiety, including behavioral treatments and medications. Behavioral treatments, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), can help individuals identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviors that contribute to anxiety.

Common Treatments for Anxiety

Panic attacks, excessive worry, and avoidance are only some of the symptoms of anxiety disorders. Wellness Psychiatry provides a variety of treatments backed by scientific evidence to alleviate these signs and help patients reclaim their lives.

Medication Management

Medication management might be helpful for people who suffer from anxiety and are looking for relief. All your symptoms can be evaluated and treated by our team of mental health nurse practitioners. Medications such as antidepressants, anti-anxiety medications, and beta-blockers can help with the mental and physiological manifestations of anxiety.

Therapeutic Interventions

Therapy plays a pivotal role in anxiety treatment. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), exposure therapy, and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy are just few of the methods used by our trained therapists. Patients are given the tools they need to identify and combat destructive thought patterns, face their anxieties, and build resilient coping mechanisms through these therapeutic interventions.

Mindfulness Techniques

Mindfulness techniques are incredibly effective for anxiety treatment as they help in grounding an individual in the present moment, thereby reducing feelings of anxiety and overwhelm. Mindfulness involves paying attention to the present moment without judgment. Techniques such as deep breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, and guided imagery can help in calming the nervous system and reducing the physical symptoms of anxiety. Additionally, mindfulness meditation, which involves sitting quietly and focusing on the breath, can help in quieting the mind and reducing rumination and worry. Regular practice of mindfulness can also lead to structural changes in the brain that are associated with improved emotional regulation and reduced anxiety. Overall, mindfulness techniques can be a powerful tool in managing anxiety, as they help in creating a sense of calm and relaxation, and foster a greater sense of self-awareness and control.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
about Anxiety Treatment

Can anxiety be helped by therapy?

Therapy has been shown to be effective for anxiety management. Wellness Psychiatry use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to assist patients in recognizing and counteracting anxious thoughts and building resilient coping mechanisms.

Is lifelong medicine use a possibility?

Medication regimens last for varying amounts of time. Some patients find that long-term use of medicine is the best way to control their symptoms, while others, with their doctor’s approval, wean themselves off of medication.

How long before anxiety symptoms begin to lessen?

The rate of progress depends on a number of elements that are unique to each person. It may take a few weeks or longer for some people to feel better, though. Maintaining regular treatment and honest dialogue with your provider is essential.

Is it necessary to conduct genetic testing before treating anxiety?

The results of a genetic test can shed light on how a patient’s body processes medications, which might inform therapeutic choices. Those who haven’t benefited from more conventional therapies have this alternative available to them.

Can two or more mental health issues occur simultaneously?

It is not uncommon for anxiety problems to arise alongside other mental health issues like depression or OCD. We have the resources to handle difficult cases and create individualized treatment strategies.

what our clients say

I was extremely apprehensive on my first visit because I was in a very bad mental state. Amanda was very thorough, very friendly, and made me feel very comfortable from the very beginning. As I recovered I looked forward to our visits but in the end we mutually decided that it was time for me to leave the nest and fly away. If I ever need her I can always call on her. There was something about the layout of the office, the furnishings, and the calming energy that always put me at ease. My first encounter with psychiatric counseling was definitely a positive experience and something that I'll cherish.
This practice has not only helped my mental health, but I have been treated in a way that is caring and thoughtful. I feel like I'm more than just the 10:30 client - there's a vested interest in my well being. Amanda Farrell is who I've been working with for a few years now and I highly recommend her! I also feel confident that anyone in the practice is trustworthy and reliable. Again, highly recommended!
Amanda is an absolute RARE find. My husband even agreed that she does….actually….. care about me and my health. I’m 50 and this might be the first time in my life that I’ve felt that my doctor/therapist really wants me to be happy and successful in life. Starting therapy when I was in my 20’s so there is a long list of docs/therapist that I’ve seen over the years. Highly recommend — especially if you’ve started feeling like you’re just another patient in the queue.
This is the best psychiatry practice I have been to. Everyone I have worked with has been empathetic and understanding. The office feels very warm and I feel very taken care of. I always know when I call or email, Riley will be super responsive to my needs. Highly recommend!
Amanda has been incredibly helpful. I'm much happier and more productive.
Wellness Psychiatry goes above and beyond. Everyone from admin to clinical staff. The team fosters warmth and are very attentive to your needs. Addressing mental health has felt overwhelming but this team makes it me feel comfortable and supported. Thanks!
