Introduction

Anxiety Therapy in Chaska, MN

 

As Chaska anxiety therapy professionals, we know that anxiety disorders are different than occasionally getting anxious. Anxiety disorders refer to a wide range of symptoms characterized by disabling levels of dread, worry, and anxiety that is not brief or passing. In co-occurring disorders, as anxiety increases, the need to escape the discomfort propels the addict to use alcohol or drugs to reduce the tension and stress and cope with the anxiety.

 

The primary traits of all anxiety disorders include subjective feelings of anxiety, stress, worry, fear, emotional distress, negative thinking, muscle tension, sleep disturbance, feeling out of control, avoidance patterns, and interruptions in daily life. Negative thought patterns continue the cycle of distress, followed by attempts to avoid the anxiety-producing situation or circumstance. With our anxiety therapy in Chaska we work together with you to address all symptoms with which you are affected.

 

SOME COMMON TYPES OF ANXIETY DISORDERS

SEPARATION ANXIETY

This disorder refers to excessive fear or anxiety about separation from parent figures or one’s home. 

.

SPECIFIC PHOBIA

A phobia is an unreasonable fear associated with a specific object or experience. Clients with phobias have unwarranted fear and facing a feared object will immediately make him or her feel tense, nervous, and panicky. 

SOCIAL ANXIETY DISORDER

Social anxiety is best defined as an excessive fear of social situations and affects 2-13% of the US population. About one in five clients with a social anxiety disorder also suffers from an alcohol or substance use disorder.

 

AGORAPHOBIA

Agoraphobia is an abnormal fear of being trapped, helpless, or in a situation with no easy means of escape. This disorder may be accompanied by anxiety or panic symptoms, or the anticipation of those feelings. Trigger situations may include being in public spaces, shopping malls, public transportation, or simply being outside one’s home.

 

SUBSTANCE/MEDICATION-INDUCED ANXIETY DISORDER

When anxiety symptoms are produced by using, or withdrawal from, alcohol or other drugs, substance-induced anxiety disorder may be diagnosed.

 

GENERALIZED ANXIETY DISORDER

Worrying constantly, anticipating disaster, having difficulty concentrating, staying focused, or making decisions, being uneasy, and experiencing trouble relaxing or sitting still are signs of GAD and can make it hard to function normally at work or within relationships. 

 

 

PANIC DISORDER

Panic disorder is a common anxiety disorder in which the client experiences more than one panic episode and often worries about having more of them. 

 

If you struggle with any of these common types of anxiety, NorthStar Regional’s licensed anxiety therapy professionals in Chaska can help you through this journey with our anxiety therapy programs.

 

ANXIETY IS TREATABLE WITH OUR PERSONALIZED ANXIETY THERAPY IN MAPLE GROVE

 

Anxiety can be treated and managed. While anxiety can force one’s mind to focus on failures and fears, we will work with you to reframe your mindset on progress and success. For example, resist the urge to avoid stressful and anxiety-provoking situations, break each task or event into small pieces, and calm yourself using the skills we help build with you. Our anxiety therapy in Maple Grove can help you change your thinking, teach anxiety management techniques, and conquer your fears. In this way, you get stronger with each time you become mildly anxious, rather than getting weaker and more fearful. As you lower your general level of stress and anxiety, and build anxiety management skills, you will move forward with increased self-assurance and confidence.
