In an ever-changing world, it is normal to experience occasional anxiety and fears of the future. However, if you have found that you struggle with excessive worrying, panic attacks, or racing thoughts that keep you up at night, it may be beneficial to seek therapy. Anxiety can also cause an increase in heart rate, feelings of nervousness, bouts of dizziness, and/or depression. At Hillcrest Psychological Associates, we are here to help improve your physical and emotional well-being.
Our psychologists will teach you relaxation techniques to self-soothe and reduce anxiety stressors in the moment. We will walk you through the process and support you when you may be feeling vulnerable.
Our therapists utilize strength-based treatments including CBT to collaboratively explore how your thoughts may influence your feelings, which, in turn, influence behaviors. We also utilize mindfulness and contemporary psychodynamic perspectives. We will help you define tools to implement realistic thought patterns, extinguish harmful behaviors, and peacefully engage in activities that once brought you anxiety. Together, we will work towards developing a sense of awareness to the underlying causes of your worries. Ultimately, our goal is to guide you towards shifting your perspective and overcoming each fear or phobia—one step at a time.
We are in-network psychologists in San Diego for Cigna and Anthem Blue Cross. We encourage you to contact us here to schedule an appointment and learn more about how we can help.
