Experiencing stress is a normal function of living. However, anxiety occurs when stress becomes overwhelming or when we feel uncomfortable in what are typically low stress situations. Reducing feelings of anxiety often requires working with a counselor and we encourage you to make an initial appointment if you are experiencing the signs of anxiety described below. You can also refer to the bottom of this page for other resources.



What are the signs of Anxiety?  A person with anxiety may:

  • Worry very much about everyday things
  • Have trouble controlling their constant worries
  • Know that they worry much more than they should
  • Not be able to relax
  • Have a hard time concentrating
  • Be easily startled
  • Have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep
  • Feel tired all the time
  • Have headaches, muscle aches, stomach aches, or unexplained pains
  • Have a hard time swallowing
  • Tremble or twitch
  • Be irritable, sweat a lot, and feel light-headed or out of breath
  • Have to go to the bathroom a lot.
