Treating anxiety focuses on the development of a strong and cohesive sense of self, which reduces the terror associated with anxiety and uncertainty. By working to strengthen the self, you can be better able to regulate your emotions and manage anxiety. We'll focus on understanding uncomfortable thoughts and feelings, rather than trying to eliminate them. Over time they will subside

Often, our work will emphasize the importance of exploring unconscious conflicts and defense mechanisms that contribute to anxiety. For example, anxiety may arise as a result of unconscious conflicts related to our desires, fears, or sense of self. By exploring these underlying factors, individuals can gain insight into their symptoms and develop healthier coping strategies.

Psychotherapy in NYC involves understanding the relationship between your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is often used to treat anxiety disorders, as it can help individuals identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviors that contribute to anxiety. Uncontrollable anger often arises when we feel most vulnerable and have a fragmented or weakened sense of self.

ANXIETY IS A SIGNAL, NOT A STATE
Anxiety May Feel Overwhelming, but It is Not Insurmountable.

My approach to understanding anxiety involves looking at your early developmental experiences and their impact on your development of a strong and cohesive self. Anxiety arises when the self is threatened or fragmented, leading to feelings of helplessness, powerlessness, and uncertainty. A sense of injustice and feelings of persecution can arise.
