Anxiety can be defined as an apprehension about something that is to come. Anxiety differs from fear in that it is often not in response to an actual stressor, but more of a “what if” based apprehension about future events.
We all experience anxiety from time to time – when having to speak in front of an audience, apply for a job, or try a new skill. However, if anxious feelings begin interfering with your daily life, or become debilitating or uncomfortably dominant, it may be time to reach out for help.
Additionally, if you’re experiencing physical symptoms as a result of anxiety, it may be time to work with a professional. BasePoint Psychiatry and Wellness can help you write your next chapter, free from the limitations that can come with excess anxiety.
See the list below for some typical symptoms of an anxiety disorder:
- Increased heart rate
- Trouble concentrating
- Trouble falling or staying asleep
- Rapid breathing or hyperventilation
- Increased or heavy sweating
- Trembling or muscle twitching
- Persistent Thoughts
- Digestive or gastrointestinal problems
- Obsessions about certain ideas, a sign of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
- Performing certain behaviors over and over again
Anxiety disorders can become chronic if not managed. Our care team is trained to treat anxiety with multiple strategies including CBT, coping skills, imagery, mindfulness or medicine.
We’ve all felt it. Stress. But did you know there are many techniques to address specific types of stress and triggers for them? BasePoint’s care team can help you discover what’s causing your stress and make a personalized plan to manage it.
Stress is inevitable. It can come from big things, small things, positive and negative. Stress can be defined as a bodily, emotional, or mental response to outside pressures.
Stress can occur from big life events (death of a loved one, a move, new job, planning a wedding, having a baby, etc.), or everyday things like work deadlines, parenting, relationships, even traffic.
Stress is a reality of life, so learning to manage it in healthy ways is crucial. High levels of stress, or unmanaged stress, can have devastating effects on emotional, mental, and physical health. Consistent stress levels left untreated can produce chronic diseases like hypertension, diabetes, chronic pains, stroke, and even heart attack
Physical symptoms of stress may include:
- Body Ache
- Stomach aches or digestive issues
- Unexplained body pain
- Tight muscles
Mental symptoms of stress may include:
- Substance Abuse
- Suicidal thoughts
- Food /eating issues
- Sleep Disruption

Stress is a part of life. Learning techniques to manage it, or talking through it with a trusted care provider, can ease the effects on your mind and body.
