Managing Anxiety

Therapy for anxiety in Orange County

Therapy for anxiety can help in three primary ways.

First, therapy offers a supportive, confidential space for you to talk openly about your fears and worries. Anxiety always feels worse when you try to deal with it on your own. Therapy gives you the opportunity to talk through your thoughts and feelings without worrying about passing your stress on to someone else.

Second, therapists like Dr. Suzan Pazak can help you develop effective coping skills for managing anxiety and stress. You can learn to use strategies such as mindfulness, thought stopping, and boundary-setting to help reduce the anxiety in your life.

“As a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist, I strive to equip you with psychological tools that you can use outside of sessions whenever anxiety shows up.”

And third, therapy for anxiety isn’t just about anxiety – it’s about making you the best version of yourself. You get the chance to make sense of your thoughts and feelings and understand yourself on a deeper level. We work together as a team to help you move closer to the life you want to live.

Therapy for anxiety can also help you with:

  • Learning to relax and feel at ease
  • Regaining a sense of control
  • Developing increased confidence
  • Improving your quality of sleep
  • Building deeper connections with others
  • Enhancing productivity and focus
  • Finding your sense of direction in life

No matter how long you have struggled with anxiety, there is hope. You can learn to overcome stress and worry – all you have to do is get started.

Dr. Pazak’s primary approach to treating anxiety is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

The effects of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) on reducing anxiety have been well established. The goal of CBT is to help clients identify thoughts that negatively impact mood and produce negative behavioral patterns. Many of us have maladaptive “automatic thoughts” that shape the way we view ourselves and the world around us. These thoughts unknowingly reinforce our anxious emotions and can lead to deleterious self-defeating behaviors. CBT strives to change your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors as you work to achieve your goals.
