In health, anxiety tends to serve a signal function, alerting us to potential dangers. In many cases, though, anxiety goes beyond its signal function, firing when it is no longer useful.
You might have experienced some of the common symptoms of anxiety. They include excessive worry, trouble concentrating, irritability, feeling drained or fatigued, rumination, a shortness of breath, a tight chest, nausea, muscle tension and stomach pain.
I draw on established traditions in psychodynamic psychotherapy to help clients build insight and articulate the underlying sources of their worry. With new insight and therapeutic support, clients can draw on their internal resources to find their own unique solutions.
