Anxiety

Anxiety can take many forms and affects the way we feel, our physical responses, as well as the way we think. Anxiety can range in intensity and length. In some cases it can be thought of as a healthy response stressors in our lives. On the other hand, anxiety can affect our function, interfere with sleep, and prevent us from accomplishing the things we want to. There are a number of psychiatric disorders that describe ways that anxiety commonly interferes with our function.

I offer a warm and safe place to discuss anxiety. I have clinically assessed and treated a large number of people who present with anxiety being their primary concern. Treatment options and length vary as personal goals and the causes of feeling anxious vary. I draw from multiple evidenced based treatment techniques to create a mufti-dimensioned plan that fits your goals. I am aware of the special challenges that different social, occupational, family, and cultural contexts can bring.

It is very important to not self-diagnosis anxiety disorders or any other psychiatric disorder.  With so much information available to us on the Internet today this can be tempting, but anxiety disorders can have very real effects on your function and needs the attention of a mental health professional.

Talk therapy is very effective at treating a variety of anxiety disorders. Psychiatric pharmaceuticals can also be part of effective treatment for anxiety.

Because of the wide variety of reasons that can cause us to feeling anxious and the complexities and subtleties of professional diagnosis and treatment, feel free to call me to discuss further. I am experienced and trained in a variety of treatment and assessment methods for a variety of reasons that you might be experiencing anxiety.  Contact a licensed mental health professional or your family doctor if you have concerns about anxiety. Prairie Owl Psychology & Counselling is waiting to help with all your Edmonton psychologist needs, call Today.  Prairie Owl Psychology & Counselling is waiting to help with all your Edmonton psychologist needs, call Today.  Looking for a psychologist Edmonton, think Prairie Owl Psychology & Counselling.
