"Anxiety is the body's natural response to danger, an automatic alarm that goes off when you feel threatened or are facing a stressful situation. Anxiety isn't always a bad thing. In fact, anxiety can help you stay focused and motivate you to solve problems. But, if anxiety is constant or overwhelming, if it interferes with your relationships and activities, or it keeps you from experiencing joy and happiness-- then your anxiety has moved from mild to moderate/severe. The bottom line is you don't have to be a prisoner to your anxiety. There is hope, support, and treatment."

"In our contemporary society it is easy to be content and even glad for medications that soothe symptoms, but healing comes from working through our underlying inner conflicts in a textured human relationship in which we can feel what we truly feel and become who we truly are. I believe distressful symptoms, whether depression, anxiety, anger, hurt, a sense of meaninglessness, a sense of emptiness, addictions, or behavior problems are signs. They are signs that it is time to grow our mindfulness of our underlying needs, feelings, and thereby gain choices for living more contently within our communities and families."
