Anxiety is not simply nervousness. It is an uncontrollable fear, stress, and even physical symptoms in situations that do not warrant it. Anxiety can also be self-sustaining. You find yourself in an uncomfortable situation, that anxiety affects how you act in that situation in a negative way, and suddenly that situation becomes a place for further anxiety.
As a Garden City anxiety therapist, I recognize how difficult and stressful this anxiety can be. I also understand how deeply personal that anxiety is, and why it can feel as though you are the only one that understands your symptoms and experiences.
Anxiety is Physical and Mental
Anxiety is not just an emotional issue either. For many it is physical, with shaking, heart palpitations, lightheadedness and more. Seeking out anxiety therapy in Garden City isn’t only to improve your social life – it is also to help you feel happier and more physically comfortable with each passing day.
It’s my goal to help you both learn strategies to overcome your anxiety and figure out where your anxiety comes from so that you can control it. I work with all types of anxiety, including:
- Social Anxiety
- Panic Attacks
- Generalized Anxiety
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and More
Whether you have a “diagnosable” mental health disorder or you simply feel like your shyness and nervousness are affecting your life, I encourage you to come talk to me so that together we can discuss what it is you’re feeling and why you’re feeling that way.
My goal as an anxiety therapist in the Garden City/Long Island area is to make sure you have someone that you can talk to, and someone that will guide you on the right path towards recovery. I have two separate offices, and we can schedule a time that will work for your needs.
Even if you’re not sure whether therapy is right for you, feel free and contact me today at (516) 732-0273. I’m happy to talk to you about what’s involved in my anxiety therapy, why it works, and perhaps start to learn more about you so that we can start creating a long term relationship. I have been a Garden City psychologist for a number of years, and I would love an opportunity to learn more about you and start you on your path to recovery.
