What does Anxiety Disorder Feel Like?
Anxiety, PTSD, OCD, GAD, ADHD, ...the list goes on. Do you have intense, excessive and persistent worry and fear about everyday situations? That choking feeling that robs you of fullness of life… Comes when you least expect it. Stays when you most want it to leave. What purpose does it serve but to antagonize your life? It robs you of good times and sours life experiences that others enjoy with ease. The fear and anxiety from this disorder often repeat themselves throughout your daily activities. They intervene in your everyday life; making living life a struggle.

What is a Session Like with Our Counselors?
At Crossroads Counseling, our therapists are well versed in the many symptoms and therapies that come with anxiety disorders. We strive to identify individual needs; our diagnosis provides tailor made treatment. Once the patient’s issues unfold, we introduce them to the underlying problem and offer practical solutions to manage and deal with anxiety disorders outside of the sessions. We believe the road to recovery is available to those seeking help. We are here to help you confront anxiety issues head on so that you don’t have to fight the fear on your own. It has been proven that when clients face their fear continually without the negative outcome they expect, the fear will disappear on its own. You don’t have to face anxiety alone. It is best to face it with caring, compassionate help. This helps not only resolve anxiety issues, but also rebuild the confidence and self image that is often lost when anxiety attacks.
In certain cases, the therapist may partner with a primary physician or a psychiatrist who can aid with medication to help treat physical symptoms that are caused by anxiety. Crossroads Counselors work with clients both clinically and therapeutically. Our goal is for our clients to overcome emotional distress of all kinds. We want you to enjoy the road trip to a better, fuller, anxiety-free life.
