Anxiety disorders are the most common and pervasive mental health disorders in the United States.
What is Anxiety?
Anxiety is the presence of excessive and persistent worry and fear about various events or activities – even ordinary, everyday situations.
Day-to-day worries and fears are a normal part of life. In fact, most people experience anxiety at times. Whether you’re experiencing a stressful change or difficult event, it’s particularly common to experience anxiety. But if anxiety becomes overwhelming or challenging to manage, interferes with your daily functioning, or affects your quality of life, it may be an anxiety disorder.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Anxiety
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is the most common type of psychotherapy used to treat anxiety disorders, and Palo Alto Therapy specializes in this form of therapy. CBT is highly recognized among the psychological community because it’s been extensively researched and proven effective.
CBT for anxiety is a hands-on and solutions-focused approach that helps individuals identify their thinking and behavioral patterns and adopt healthier thinking and behavioral patterns to relieve their symptoms and improve their feelings AND their lives!
Additional Support for Anxiety
Our other approaches available to treat anxiety besides individual therapy are our anxiety classes. These classes consist of people with similar problems who meet to learn about anxiety, share personal experiences, give/get support and encouragement to those who participate in the class AND learn and practice lots of excellent skills to gain more peace of mind.
At Palo Alto Therapy, we offer Anxiety to Wellness classes for teens (13-17 years) and adults (18+ years) in January, April, and September. Our class is perfect for you if you want excellent group support and connection, a structured 8 week class and or you appreciate the cost savings of a group vs individual therapy.
