Online help for anxiety
right here, for you
All emotions have a purpose, even anxiety. But when we feel too much of something and it stops helping us survive and instead keeps us from thriving, It can turn into a heavy burden. Anxiety is one of those emotions: it helps us get ready to fight or fly away from danger. But our dangers these days aren’t always about running away from lions or fighting off bears. It can stem from work, school, our relationships, and other sources. And if you’re a person who holds one or more marginalized identities, there can be even more anxiety as you try to navigate your world.
Anxiety and its impact
For a lot of us, it can be in the form of a fast heart rate or sweaty palms. Over time you might feel headaches, stomach aches, or chest pains. The you thoughts can be overwhelming because we’re constantly thinking about what could go wrong, how we can prevent it, and what we might do if we can’t. Our behaviors could change, too. We might repeat procedures over and over again to be sure we didn’t miss anything or try to get work done way ahead of schedule. And when anxiety gets really overwhelming, we might freeze and stop working all together just because things feel like they’re too much.
If any of these scenarios sound familiar to you, you might be experiencing anxiety. For some people, it’s not noticeable or recognized as anxiety until we take our symptoms to medical doctors.
The importance of treatment
If your anxiety starts getting in the way of how you want to function in your life, then it’s important to consider getting extra support. Treatment can help you engage with the things that used to make you anxious by giving you coping skills that you can use in any situation. A good therapist will work collaboratively with you to challenge the anxiety that is holding you back. They will also empower you to engage in activities that feel less constricted by fear and worry for the future. When anxiety feels like it is controlling your life, collaborative treatment with a therapist can help you retake the wheel and live the way you want to live. All of this is done in a space that is safe for you to explore all of the parts that make you, you.
How we can help
At Cultured Space, our therapists have been helping people with depression through innovative and effective therapeutic services that target it at the psychological source.

What’s different, though, is that we don’t just look at the symptoms; we look at everything that matters to you.
How we're different
At Cultured Space, our therapists aren’t just aware of the life obligations that impact your anxiety. We are also aware of how your identities, whether they be privileged or marginalized, visible or invisible, may be shaping your experience. These are the parts of your healing journey that we acknowledge and honor because all parts of you are welcome here. While general messages about and symptoms of anxiety may feel similar and resonate with you, some of them won’t because of the ways in which our cultures and communities have raised us to be. At Cultured Space, we want to explore those things with you so that we can create a treatment plan that is individualized, considerate, and beneficial for you.
