Recovery from Anxiety
When you’re in a heightened state of anxiety or panic, it can be hard to leave the house. Getting out into the world and trying something new that you’re uncomfortable with may seem like the last thing you want to do. This is especially troublesome when you need to get help for anxiety. All too often, someone struggling with anxiety will find it difficult to reach out and seek treatment. In some cases, a person may not even realize how much their anxiety is affecting their day to day life.
When a person’s whole mindset is discolored fear and diminished self-worth, it can be difficult for them to see anything beyond their own immediate situation. Anxiety is often self-perpetuating. The symptoms of anxiety can make a person feel so isolated and alone that they can’t bear to go out and do things that might improve their mood. When someone is stuck in a desperate place, they begin to feel depressed by their very circumstances. This leads to feelings of self-pity and guilt that can dig them deeper into their anxiety.
Luckily, even the most severe cases of Generalized Anxiety Disorder are able to be effectively treated. D’Amore offers a variety of evidence-based treatments to help a person struggling with anxiety to make healthy changes and live a life free from fear. At D’Amore, we are committed to finding the right treatment for each individual. From psychotherapy to medication management and even holistic methods, we provide a full spectrum of therapeutic modalities so that we can design a treatment plan to fit each of our patient’s unique needs.
