Anxiety is normal and present in everyone's life, especially now with the current environment. Anxiety is your brain's way of reacting to stress and alerting you to potential danger. While everyone feels anxious now and then, if it is constant then it can interfere with normal functioning in life including problems at work, home and with family. You can get help with your anxiety and panic by reaching out to a trained therapist.
It is normal for people to experience a wide range of emotions over the course of days, weeks or months. Typically these vary based on events and circumstances that we experience. Sadness is a normal emotion. When we suffer a loss, we grieve. Normally these feelings ebb and flow and will respond to input and changes. Depression tends to feel heavy and constant. People who are depressed are less likely to be cheered, comforted or consoled. If you or a loved one are suffering from depression, please reach out to a professional for help.
Life transitions are periods in life that involve change. Change can be more difficult for some people and can increase stress levels. When in a life transition, it can be very painful and emotional.

Stress is a feeling of emotional or physical tension. It can be caused by any event or thought that makes you feel frustrated, angry, or nervous. Stress is your body's reaction to these events or thoughts.

Untreated and ongoing stress levels can create physical and emotional issues that are unhealthy. We are here to help you deal with the stress in your life.
