Therapy for Anxiety

In Los Angeles, the pressures of careers, relationships, family, or even traffic - to name a few - are just some of the common stressors we all experience. Although some anxiety is adaptive and helpful, anxiety becomes a problem when it seemingly shows up out of nowhere, when it interferes with your relationships, and/or when it stops you from doing the things you need to do at school, work or home.

Anxiety can feel debilitating - whether it’s in the face of real or perceived threats - and it’s something you feel intensely in your body just as much as in your thoughts. If you’re struggling with anxiety, you may’ve noticed:

  • a pattern of excessive worry
  • spiral thinking patterns
  • irritability
  • self-doubt
  • irrational fears
  • hyper self-awareness
  • perfectionism.
  • trouble falling asleep
  • muscle tension
  • a racing heart
  • dizziness
  • chest or stomach pain

If you frequently and/or intensely experience any of the above, then it might be time to do something about your anxiety. At Highland Park Therapy, our therapists are trained in one of the most effective forms of therapy for anxiety - Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness. In our work together, we’ll explore how the body, mind and behaviors all influence each other, explore the roots and history of your anxieties or fears, and ultimately transform your anxiety so that you can stop struggling and start living.
