Anxiety, Panic, & Stress

Our therapists are here to help you face your fears, overcome anxiety, and learn useful tools to cope with stress.

You've been battling with worry, stress, and anxiety for a long time.

Healthy levels of anxiety can act as a built-in warning system developed to protect us. However, when anxiety starts to impact your ability to function and enjoy life fully, it's time to seek treatment.

You've been battling with worry, stress, and anxiety for a long time. You don't even remember a time you weren't feeling nervous. It feels as though anxiety has taken over your life. Your stomach is always in knots to the point of nausea. Before your day even begins, it starts feeling sore, tense, and exhausted. Negative thoughts don't leave your side. Moreover, your appetite has decreased, and sleepless nights have become your routine. You feel tired, but at the same time, you even can't sleep.

Some level of anxiety or tension is OKAY, or I must say it is NECESSARY. It is basically how our body reacts when we are in a risky or scary state. Imagine you are in the forest and see a bear. What would be your reaction? Undeniably you will be tensed and try to escape yourself. In such a situation, anxiety and stress are a must, or else you won't be able to survive. But what if anxiety, panic, and stress have become the routine?

Suppose it's a job interview, and you are nervous about whether you'll be selected or not. Here, you might feel anxiety, and that's okay. But, the problem arises when you start feeling anxious about very little things happening in life. The problem arises when anxiety becomes a hurdle in living your life to the fullest. 

This is where you need to find the a seasoned anxiety therapist in Missouri. When you are in experienced hands, things go easy. Whether you're bumbling with social anxiety, feel paralyzed by nervousness before quizzes at school, or find yourself sidestepping things due to stress, consulting with a competent therapist at BRAVE is the best route for your better life ahead. 

Significant Symptoms of Anxiety

Every individual has different lifestyles, backgrounds, and, most importantly, experiences; hence different people react differently in the same situations. Due to our years of experience and expertise in the mental healthcare field, we have treated diverse patients and analyzed some common symptoms of anxiety:

  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD): you keep yourself occupied with unreasonable stress & worry. You consider yourself to be an incredible mess. 
  • Social Anxiety Disorder – you constantly worry about what people will think about you. You fear a lot about being judged negatively by friends, family, or relatives. 
  • Panic attacks: you are worried about unnecessary things, which leads to persistent panic attacks. This makes you always fear another panic attack. 
  • Agoraphobia: You fear being trapped in difficult-to-leave places.
  • Phobias: Extreme fear for any particular thing or object.
  • Detachment anxiety: you constantly fear losing your loved ones. You keep worrying about what if they will leave you one day.
  • Selective Mutism: it is a kind of social anxiety where children do not speak to friends and relatives the way they talk to family members. If it is not treated at the right time, possibly, even in adulthood, the same problem continues. 

You set the goals; our BRAVE therapists will accomplish them!

We set goals for your recovery. Are you wondering how these goals work? A real-life example will help you better comprehend. Suppose your ultimate goal is to reach Gateway Arch. But only discussing the goal doesn't help. To accomplish your goal (trip), you must also plan things. For example, who will arrange the car, bring all the food, and be ready with a fantastic music playlist and some cards to play? 

Now relate this to your anxiety treatment. Your ultimate goal is to get a fast recovery from all these adverse and scary feelings like anxiety, stress, and panic. But to get there, you must plan things. Our anxiety therapist in Missouri will create a step-by-step plan to reach the recovery stage quickly by understanding you and your preferences.
