The simplest definition of anxiety is our mind and body’s fear reaction. As humans, it’s important for us to know when to detect threats and protect ourselves. But sometimes we struggle with irrational fears or feel on edge in everyday situations. Navigating through a crowd, meeting new people, or even getting work done on time can feel overwhelming. Anxiety can also look like general worry about life, a specific fear or phobia, or even sensations of panic. And when anxiety is high, it can feel almost impossible to think clearly and work on personal goals. Anxiety counseling can help you overcome those fears and live a healthier and more comfortable life.
