Anxiety Treatment in Wake Forest, Raleigh, and Fuquay Varina
Do you find it hard to focus while you’re sitting in class or in a meeting at work, like some kind of invisible force is tugging your mind in one hundred different directions? Do you struggle with fears about day-to-day life? Do you sometimes find it hard to sleep because you can’t “turn your brain off”?
Or perhaps you are worried about your child or teen. Are they refusing to go to school, acting more irritable, or perhaps having difficulty sleeping? These can be signs of anxiety, though they are often missed in children and adolescents.
All of us experience these things from time to time. Mild anxiety can flare up during exhausting seasons of life, like when you’re facing a series of tests in school or a major deadline at work. But if these experiences are becoming more common or severe, (like breaking out in cold sweats, feeling as if you’re drowning, or can’t breathe well), then it is time to seek professional help.
Trouble falling asleep or staying asleep
Regularly feeling paralyzed by worry or troublesome thoughts

How Counseling Helps
You’re tired of just surviving; you want to thrive. You want your life back. Good news: Counseling can help. Our therapists who specialize in anxiety can help by teaching you how to:
Identify anxiety triggers
Learn techniques like mindfulness and grounding
Reduce panic attacks and feel less agitated
Stop feeling overwhelmed
What Anxiety Counselors Do
If you haven’t visited a counselor before, it can be intimidating or even, itself, a cause for anxiety. Wanting to know what therapy could look like is normal.
Typically, your counselor will ask to learn a bit more about you and why you are seeking help. Then, they will map out a plan of treatment together with you so you can achieve goals together. As you move through counseling, you may also practice certain skills between sessions. However, our therapists all take an individualized approach to treatment, so every counseling experience will be a little different and tailored to your individual desires and needs.
Our anxiety therapists use evidenced-based counseling techniques, including things like exposure therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), solution-focused therapy (SFT), and mindfulness and grounding to help our clients overcome anxiety and thrive, rather than just survive.
Getting Help For Anxiety
To begin getting help to deal with your anxiety, you can take one of two steps. First, you can take our online course “From Surviving to Thriving.” It will help you decrease your anxiety, stress, and negative thinking and you can take the entire course from the comfort and safety of your own home.
