If you are here because of anxiety, you are in the right place. We understand it and we know how to help you with it. Anxiety can take over your thinking, rob you of joy, lower self-confidence, and even interfere with relationships. Anxiety takes many forms. The most frightening (yet very common) type of anxiety is having a panic attack, or having panic attacks often.
Panic attacks can be terrifying. Many people mistake panic attacks for life threatening emergencies, particularly heart attacks. Symptoms include tightness in the chest, difficulty breathing, sudden unexplained sweating, hyperventilating, and a feeling or fear of immediately dying. These are some of the typical symptoms of a panic attack, so yes of course they are terrifying. You’re not crazy, you are having anxiety and we can help.
If you do feel like you are having a heart attack, don’t hesitate to get to the nearest emergency room or call 911. If that has happened to you and you learned it was a panic attack, you are not alone. Let’s talk about it.
Many people have crippling anxiety but you can take back your life. We can work together to help you overcome this frightening problem.
