Anxiety can be a very uncomfortable and distressing experience for many people. It's a normal human emotion that can serve as a helpful warning signal in some situations, but when it’s present all the time, it can get in the way of your daily life and lead to significant levels of stress. That’s when it’s helpful to reach out to a anxiety therapist


Anxiety can feel different for each person, but here are some common physical, cognitive, and emotional symptoms that are often associated with anxiety: 

  • Rapid heartbeat or palpitations

  • Chest tightness or discomfort

  • Intrusive or unwanted thoughts

  • Difficulty concentrating or focusing

  • Catastrophizing or expecting the worst-case scenario

  • Feeling on edge or hyper-vigilant

  • Racing thoughts or mental overload

  • Feeling overwhelmed or out of control

  • Sense of dread or impending doom

  • Avoidance or withdrawal from activities or social situations


For Women of Color, anxiety can often be what is underneath certain behaviors that can be masked as unproblematic, like being a high achiever or the “go-to” person.

Below the surface, Women of Color who struggle with anxiety are also dealing with:

  • Negative inner dialogue that reduces one's confidence

  • People pleasing tendencies such as: being the peacekeeper, difficulty with saying No, or suppressing your true thoughts/feelings out of fear of rejection. 

  • Low self esteem and tying their worth to how much they can achieve 


While overachieving may lead to short-term success, it can also lead to burnout, exhaustion, and other negative consequences in the long run.


Anxiety Therapy can be especially helpful in addressing these issues by providing a safe and supportive space to explore feelings and experiences, build coping skills, and develop strategies for promoting self-worth and resilience.


If anxiety is getting in the way of your ability to function or enjoy life,  we got you sis. Schedule a consultation with our team.

Anxiety Therapy in NYC FAQs

  • When should I see a Therapist for Anxiety?
    It's a good idea to consider seeking therapy for anxiety if you're experiencing significant distress or impairment in your daily life due to your symptoms. Here are some signs that it may be time to see a therapist for anxiety: You are experiencing intense and frequent anxiety symptoms such as panic attacks, excessive worry, or obsessive thoughts that are interfering with your daily life. Your anxiety is causing you to avoid or withdraw from activities, social situations, or relationships that you used to enjoy or find important. Your anxiety is impacting your ability to concentrate, work, or perform everyday tasks. You are experiencing physical symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, or digestive issues that are related to your anxiety. Your anxiety is causing you significant emotional distress, such as feelings of sadness, hopelessness, or worthlessness. If you're experiencing any of these symptoms, working with a therapist can help you develop coping strategies, explore the root causes of your anxiety, and provide support and guidance as you work towards managing your symptoms. It's important to remember that seeking help for anxiety is a sign of strength and self-care, and that with the right support, it's possible to manage your symptoms and live a life filled with ease.
  • What triggers Anxiety?
    Anxiety can be triggered by a wide range of factors, and what triggers anxiety for one person may not necessarily trigger anxiety for another. Here are a few common triggers of anxiety: Stressful life events: Major life changes, such as a job loss, breakup, or illness, can trigger feelings of anxiety. Trauma: Experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event, such as a natural disaster, accident, or violent crime, can trigger anxiety. Genetics: There may be a genetic component to anxiety, meaning that it can run in families. Substance use: Alcohol, drug use, high caffeine intake can trigger anxiety symptoms or make existing symptoms worse. Understanding your individual triggers can help you manage your anxiety and develop coping strategies to deal with challenging situations.
  • What is Anxiety Therapy like?
    At be Morr, we understand the powerful connection between the body and the mind. The mind-body connection refers to the relationship between your thoughts, emotions, beliefs, and attitudes (the mind) and your physical health and well-being (the body). Some of our preferred types of treatment include: Mindfulness-based therapies: Meditation and yoga can help you develop awareness of your thoughts and emotions, and learn to respond to them in a more helpful way. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT): Helps you identify and challenge negative thought patterns that contribute to anxiety, and develop more balanced ways of thinking. Relaxation techniques: Skills such as deep breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, and visualization can help reduce anxiety symptoms by promoting relaxation. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT): Teaches you to identify and regulate your emotions in a healthy way, rather than allowing emotions to control your behavior. Because anxiety looks different for everyone, we first work together to discover what is underneath (aka what is causing it). Throughout your journey, you will collaborate with your therapist to gain insight into the root causes, and your triggers, while also learning tools to regain a sense of control in your life.
  • What is a Trauma informed approach?
    A trauma-informed approach is a way of providing care that takes into consideration the potential impact of trauma on individuals. There is an emphasis on creating a safe and supportive environment that promotes healing, empowerment, and resilience. In sessions, this can look like: Ensuring your physical and emotional safety Building trust through transparency, clear communication, and consistent follow-through ( aka if we offer to follow up on something- we keep our word) Allowing you to make choices and have control over your treatment (if a coping skill is not working out- we welcome that feedback) Building skills to empower you Acknowledging the unique experiences of how you experience your culture Tailoring sessions to your unique needs- therapy looks and feels differently for everyone.
  • Where in the body is Trauma stored?
    First, the mind and body are interconnected and influence each other. Trauma can be stored in the body in several ways. Here are a few examples: Tension: Tight muscles/knots, chronic pain, headaches, and digestive issues. Hypervigilance: Trauma can lead to a constant state of hypervigilance, where the body is always on high alert and ready to respond to perceived threats. This can cause exhaustion, sleep disturbances, and heightened anxiety. Numbness: Have you ever described your emotions as “I feel numb/nothing” or often answer “I don’t know” when someone asks how you feel? Trauma can cause the body to shut down and numb out, disconnecting from emotions and physical sensations. This is what we call feelings of disassociation. Sensitivity: Trauma can make the body more sensitive to external stimuli (ex. Noisy environments, touch, etc), leading to an increased frightened response.
  • How can Trauma impact your relationships
    Trauma can have a significant impact on relationships in various ways, including: Trust issues: It could feel difficult to trust others and form healthy relationships. Codependency: Becoming overly reliant on another person for emotional support and struggling to set boundaries. Intimacy issues: Trouble feeling comfortable with closeness, leading to difficulties in forming and maintaining intimate relationships. Communication issues: Finding it hard to effectively express emotions or needs in a relationship. Emotional reactivity: A pattern of intense flood of emotions or shut down in response to triggers. Conflict: Strains in relationships due to intense feelings of anger and irritability.
