Feeling on edge, irritability, difficulty concentrating or experiencing frequent negative intrusive thoughts all may be symptoms of anxiety. Katie has over ten years of experience treating clients with various symptoms of anxiety utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness and other research-based techniques. Other symptoms of anxiety may include:
- Difficulty falling asleep, frequently waking up or not feeling well-rested

- Feeling angry or irritable. You may often feel overwhelmed or overstimulated by your environment (noises, lights, crowds, etc).
- Physical symptoms such as a racing heart, “butterflies” in your stomach, feeling nauseated, shaking hands, rapid breathing.
