Therapy to Change the
Tides of Anxiety

Your anxiousness may be so intense that it forces you to procrastinate, sabotaging your ability to live up to your full potential. Consequently, this may result in feeling guilty and embarrassed – as if you’re a bad employee, homemaker, or even a bad person. Meanwhile, your obligations are starting to pile up – school assignments, work deadlines, social obligations, your spouse and kids needing attention. The thought of having to do it all makes you unable to relax, catch your breath, and may even lead to panic attacks.

The “hamster wheel” of anxiousness is difficult to get out of on your own, which is why many people decide to seek anxiety treatment. Therapy is a validating and effective way to overcome the vicious cycle of chronic worry and fear. We use a personalized combination of evidence-based methods, namely Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and will match you with a licensed anxiety therapist who will use these methods to help you unlearn problematic behaviors and introduce coping skills.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Avoidance is a big part of anxiety, but odds are, it has caught up to you more than you realize. Our therapy is tailored specifically to you, addressing the underlying cause of your anxiety. Anxiety is a treatable condition, and our therapists are highly skilled. Don’t suffer unnecessarily.

Moreover, trauma-informed care means that you can rest assured that your provider will be able to recognize what has been traumatic for you and can put any difficulties you are facing into this very important context. Often if you work with a provider who does not have the necessary expertise in trauma and PTSD, common post-traumatic behaviors can be unfairly pathologized and met with the question, “What’s wrong with you?” Trauma-informed care providers are able to ask the very important question of, “What happened to you?” This changes the whole dynamic of how you relate to yourself and your problems.

If you are willing to be open about your experience and learn to sit with your emotions to build the skills to be present in the here and now, that will help the anxiety be less scary. Therapy can help transform your relationship to your anxiety to make it more manageable. Think about all the times you tried to “avoid” your anxiety by not talking about it or not going somewhere. Did it work? No. Avoidance is a great short-term solution, but it doesn’t ever get rid of the root of the problem. It will never actually help your anxiety “go away”. Odds are during those times you thought you were avoiding it the anxiety was present with you in the background anyway and as soon as you stopped the avoidance behavior the volume turned back up on the anxiety. Therapy is a long-term solution to anxiety.

Talking about your anxiety means addressing it, but it also means learning that you can handle it, and that it won’t last forever. Therapy helps you understand that your anxious thoughts and feelings are things that you are capable of experiencing and gives you concrete tools and techniques to be able to do so. Avoidance is the “glue” that sustains anxiety, so bringing anxiety into the light and talking about how it affects you is the opposite of that. You can change your relationship to anxiety and live a life that isn’t controlled by fear and worry. Imagine feeling free to do things you enjoy or that interest you without being held prisoner by your anxiety. Psychotherapy can help you do that.

Therapy is an investment in yourself and your future. Anxiety costs you the ability to experience peace in the present moment, whereas the ability to live a life free of anxiety is truly priceless. Breyta psychologists utilize evidence-based treatments to help you meet your goals in a timely and efficient manner. Our goal is to help you unlock your full potential by guiding you toward taking your power back from the anxious thoughts as quickly as possible by identifying what matters most in your life, and moving you towards it.
The length of time it takes to overcome anxiety varies from person-to-person. While some clients begin to see results after a few weeks, for others it takes longer. The important thing to remember is there is no right or wrong way to heal. By working closely with our psychologists, we’ll continue to evolve your personalized treatment plan with your progress, consistently moving you toward overcoming anxiety.
For each client, we use a personalized combination of evidence-based methods, namely Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). CBT enables you to identify negative or distorted beliefs you may have about yourself, while ACT helps you change your relationship to unhelpful thoughts and feelings, be more present, and engage in meaningful behaviors, both of which help you along the path to improved wellness.
