Fear is the result of a motivational system that is designed to help us survive. When there is danger, fear motivates us to flee or fight and fear helps us to organize our activities so that we can stay out of harm's way. However, if you experience fear or anxiety that is persistent, intense and seems uncontrollable or you experience an out-of-proportion dread at the thought of everyday activities, you may benefit from consultation with a psychologist. Many times there are simple strategies for alleviating runaway fear; there are also very reliable therapeutic strategies for treating anxiety disorders that are more severe and protracted, like PTSD. Contact us today to receive a free, 30 minute consult and learn about strategies for trauma resolution and solutions for chronic anxiety.
