Anxiety Therapist in Tampa, FL
Anxiety disorders affect all aspects of a person’s life. The symptoms for each type of anxiety disorder are different. Effective treatment needs to target anxiety symptoms based on an individualized plan. I offer research-based treatment grounded in the principles of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), neuroscience and mindfulness training. This approach gives you a fresh perspective for going forward and a solid set of tools you can use to feel less anxiety.
This treatment approach is relatively short term, and focuses on learning concrete skills to reduce anxiety and other symptoms.
Specific problems targeted include social anxiety, generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, (OCD), panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, specific phobias and Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Treatment begins with a comprehensive assessment aimed toward diagnosis and development of an overall treatment plan. After the assessment process, interventions may include individual therapy, intensive treatment, family-based treatment, mindfulness training, or a combination of these approaches.
Of the various anxiety disorders, social anxiety is the most frequently encountered. Those with social anxiety have problems with severe anxiety in everyday social situations. In many cases, interacting socially becomes very stressful and even emotionally painful. Often, clients have the feeling that they are constantly being judged by others. Sometimes feelings like this become so problematic that they may completely avoid all challenging social activity. Since anxiety reduces cognitive flexibility, sufferers typically say they are chronically worried about being embarrassed or humiliated by what they might say in social settings. Therapy emphasizes a practical way of going forward, creative approaches to resolve distressing emotions and puts insights to work right away.
PTSD is most effectively treated with cognitive-behavioral therapy, emotional regulation strategies, exposure therapy and mindfulness training. Treatment is designed to teach individuals about their symptoms and strategies to overcome them. Stimulating negative emotions related to the PTSD leads to narrowed attention, diminished behavioral and decisional repertoires and it reduces cognitive flexibility. But, gradual exposure therapy will help you gain control over distressing emotions-and-cognitions, and facilitate a return to activities that are avoided as a result of the traumatic event.
