Anxiety Therapist in Chicago
Overcome Your Anxiety
Have you ever felt worried about certain aspects of your life? Maybe you feel as if your life is hard to control and perhaps these worries have manifested in physically debilitating symptoms. If any of this sounds familiar, then you may be suffering from anxiety.
Anxiety can be hard to distinguish from other feelings such as sadness, doubt, and trauma, but what sets it apart are the thoughts or concerns about the future. With the help of an anxiety therapist, you’ll be able to approach your fears by pinpointing what’s causing this emotional response. We will help you let go of worries and make peace with those negative emotions.
Dealing with anxiety on your own requires a great deal of mental strength, but you don’t have to go through it alone. By seeking the assistance of an anxiety therapist from Latinx Talk Therapy, you’ll be able to overcome your anxieties to lead a more free and fulfilling life.

Treating Anxiety with Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive-behavioral therapy is often used when treating and assessing anxiety disorders. This therapy works by reducing fears, helping the individual to become less sensitive to events and situations they deem triggering. CBT therapy focuses on identifying, understanding, and changing thinking and behavior patterns in order to reduce the presence of anxiety. With an anxiety therapist, individuals can gain a sense of control and apply helpful skills they can use throughout their lives.
How Effective is CBT Therapy for Anxiety?
Cognitive-behavioral therapy has proven itself to be especially effective for anxiety-induced phobias. Results and improvement are usually seen anywhere from twelve to sixteen weeks with active participation in therapy and mindfulness exercises. Additionally, CBT therapy calls for individuals to be actively involved with their progress, which is helpful in motivating them as they take a look at how far they’ve come. With CBT therapy, you can expect to learn how to control your thinking, maintain self-confidence, and learn coping skills when confronted with uncomfortable situations.
