Anxiety & Stress

“Without reflection, we go blindly on our way, creating more unintended consequences and failing to achieve anything successful.”

-Margaret Wheatley

Lately you’ve been feeling like you’re drowning.

There’s an endless to-do list, and for every task you cross off, another three get piled on top. You just keep sinking further and further and you’re not sure how much longer you can keep this up.

You always thought in milestones:

Once I wrap up this project, things will settle down.

Once I earn $_____, then I’ll take a vacation.

Once I close this deal, then I’ll be able to relax.

Here’s the thing, though: Even when you meet (or exceed) these goals, new ones creep up, sending you on a wild goose chase for more.

It’s not even that you’re chasing money — you’re chasing freedom. And the freedom you’re looking for always seems to be just out of reach.

The stress of your career, your responsibilities, and wanting to be present with your family and friends is like trying to keep 20 spinning plates in the air at all times. If one of them falls, they all go down.

You’re probably here because it feels like your body decided that it was done taking orders from you.

You’re noticing that no matter how hard you try, you can’t seem to relax anymore. You always feel on edge, like there’s a tightness in your chest that just won’t go away.

It’s hard to fall asleep without relying on sleep aids, and even then you consistently wake up throughout the night or wake up the next morning feeling like shit.

You’re ready to get off this rollercoaster and figure out how to finally enjoy the life you’ve worked so hard to create for yourself and your family.

Therapy for Anxiety in Simpsonville, SC

What I often tell my clients (and this might surprise you) is that Anxiety isn’t always a bad thing.

In fact, I would argue that your anxiety is part of the reason you’re so successful. 

It’s helped you push through when others may have quit. 

It led you to become the driven, ambitious, and motivated person you are today.

The main problem is that your stress and anxiety have now taken over, and it’s time for you to be the one in charge.

This looks like setting reasonable goals for yourself, sticking to a schedule that includes caring for yourself, and getting back to doing things you used to enjoy

It means facing your fears of disappointing other people, failing, and not being good enough

Because until you work through these things, you may be caught in a loop where the harder you work, the more anxiety tells you that you need to continue working even harder. Your anxiety is insatiable (and kind of an asshole sometimes). 

Together, we’ll begin talking back to your anxiety so that you can finally relax and enjoy your life – even through stressful times.
