Anxiety can feel like a never-ending swirling of thoughts in one’s head, latching onto the uncertainty of the future. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, a constant state of worrying about various potential outcomes and irrational thinking are hallmarks of individuals with anxiety, and these symptoms can begin to significantly interfere with individuals’ ability to manage their everyday lives. Anxiety can also present as feeling distracted, having clouded judgment, procrastination, and feelings of pessimism. While these are certainly negative initial outcomes for someone afflicted with anxiety, there are luckily interventions that aid in helping their management. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) are effective therapeutic interventions for anxious thoughts. Clinicians will patiently work with clients to reframe worrying thoughts and become more attuned to the present moment.
Clinicians at Madrigal look forward to making space for patients to discuss their struggles with anxiety and working with you to take back control of your thoughts.
