In the fast-paced and demanding world of today, anxiety has become an increasingly prevalent diagnosis affecting individuals across diverse backgrounds. Whether triggered by societal pressures, personal relationships, or internal struggles, anxiety can manifest in various forms that impact one’s overall health and well-being. At Hess Psychological Services, we aim to help you understand and manage your anxiety by offering psychoeducation, therapeutic interventions, and healthy coping strategies.

What Is Anxiety?

At its core, anxiety is an emotion that at a maladaptive level can cause feelings of panic, dread, worry, nervousness, and fear. These intense emotions may lead to physical responses such as a rapid heart rate, sweating, and changes in breathing, or changes in one’s thought patterns. Anxiety is more than the day-to-day worry many experience and can impair one’s life to a significant degree when these worries become hard to control, understand, or predict. As a result, anxiety disorders can affect your daily life and interfere with your work, sleep, and social functioning.

Signs and Symptoms of Anxiety

When it comes to deciphering whether your feelings of anxiety are normal or if they may be related to an anxiety disorder, there are certain behaviors and symptoms to look out for. Signs of an anxiety disorder can include:

  • Feelings of nervousness, restlessness, and being on edge.
  • Feelings of impending danger, doom, or panic.
  • Increased heart rate, sweating, shaking, or difficulty breathing.
  • GI Issues or headaches.
  • Trouble concentrating or impaired memory.
  • Sleep disturbances.
  • Tendency to avoid people, places, or things.

When it comes to effectively treating your anxiety the first step is understanding the contributing factors to your unique needs. Our team is qualified in working with you to identify the etiology of your anxiety and developing the best treatment plan for you.
