Anxiety Therapy

Overcoming Chronic Anxiety

Anxiety is a normal human response to danger or stress, but when it becomes chronic, it can be debilitating and affect all aspects of an individual’s life. Whether it is a result of external circumstances or biological predisposition, anxiety can be treated with the right tools and strategies. At New Foundations Psychological and Family Services, P.C.,, we are committed to providing individuals with a safe and supportive space to explore the underlying causes of their anxiety. Our goal is to guide individuals towards personal growth and healthier living by addressing the root causes of their anxiety.

Understanding the Causes of Anxiety

The body’s natural stress response mechanism, the autonomic nervous system, triggers the “fight or flight” response to perceived threats. For individuals with anxiety disorders, this response is either too sensitive, leading to panic attacks, or continuously on, resulting in chronic stress and worry. Sources of anxiety can be environmental, such as traumatic events or life changes, or biological, due to genetic predispositions.
Therapy aims to equip individuals with coping skills to manage, reduce, and overcome anxiety. Working with a therapist, individuals can identify their triggers and develop techniques to manage their thought patterns that cause anxiety. Therapy also helps individuals reduce physical symptoms of anxiety and improve their overall quality of life.
