Anxiety is commonly associated with trauma, though some people who have never experienced a traumatic event also feel anxious. The following list identifies some of the signs of anxiety.

I work with you to identify the source of anxiety in your life and talk with you about solutions to help reduce and manage it. Anxiety makes it feel like you’re having a hard time “shutting off” your thoughts or may cause you to feel like you need to worry about everything. Sometimes anxiety is associated with panic attacks or flashbacks as well.
It’s normal to feel anxious around a stressful event. However, anxiety that is ongoing and lasts several weeks might be a sign that additional help could be useful. I can help you learn ways to manage anxious feelings and thoughts and decrease panic attacks, nightmares, and flashbacks using relaxation, education, and interactive feedback.
