Anxiety & Stress
The Psychologists at McNally Psychology can help those suffering from anxiety and stress.
You feel like there is a huge weight on your chest. The pressure is not making it any easier to work, study, complete everyday tasks, or sleep the 8 hours we are told is so important to function optimally. You find your mind is constantly racing, playing out worst-case scenarios to events that haven’t even happened yet.
Anxious thoughts are joined by physical discomfort. You might experience a knot in your stomach, and others may notice your uncontrollable tapping, finger biting, or fidgeting. Whether perfectionism leads you to overcompensate, or nervousness leads to total avoidance, you feel like your quality of life has taken a hit. You’re not reaching your full potential and your closest relationships have become strained by tense interactions. You feel defeated and alone, and are questioning whether or not it is possible to feel any different.
We want you to know you are not alone. In fact, anxiety disorders are among the most common mental illness in Americans, affecting roughly 40 million people (ADAA). Although severity varies from person to person, most people will admit to worrying about finances, job security, relationships, health, or the future at some point in their lives.
Although unpleasant, anxiety and stress can be normal and even adaptive, if managed properly. At McNally Psychology, we are here to provide guidance and support to help you cope with these symptoms. Please give us a call today to schedule an appointment.
