The Info You Need To Get Started (https://goo.gl/E12NNc)

A big part of our initial work together is formulating a diagnosis and treatment goals for you.

At the end of each month, a statement of services will be provided to you either in person or via email. This form then gets submitted to your insurance company along with a health insurance claim form, to receive payment.

We'll be happy to walk you through the reimbursement process when you contact us for your initial consultation.

Anxiety Symptoms People Mistake For Personality Traits (https://goo.gl/pJ2XLR)

Therapists still find people in their office who had no idea that what they were experiencing was an anxiety disorder. In many cases, this is because anxiety disorders and personality overlap, and people are surprised that their "personality quirks" are actually a sign that they're suffering from anxiety.

Here are a few of the common anxiety symptoms that are often mistaken as personality quirks, according to therapists.

Perfectionism
If you are constantly checking and re-checking everything you do, or you don't do new things out of fear that they won't be perfect, it may go beyond perfectionism and be a sign of an anxiety disorder.

Introvertedness
Many people are introverted, but when it's motivated more out of fear of interacting with people than the desire to recharge alone, it may be a sign of an anxiety disorder.

People-pleasing
If you're known as a people-pleaser, examine where this drive comes from. If deep down, you have a fear of letting people down, and you're neglecting your own needs because of it, it may have to do with your anxiety.

Ways To Care For Yourself (https://goo.gl/GaZdQU)

Self-care is important. While doing things like going to the spa or relaxing in a bubble bath can be one way to practice self-care, they're not the only ways. Here are some ways that you can care for yourself:

Dig into your feelings.
Start by accepting your feelings, even the ones that seem inappropriate or wrong, so that you can begin digging into them. Without criticism, get curious about why you feel certain ways and what things trigger different emotions, good or bad.

Clean house.
Get rid of the things that are weighing you down. Whether they're clothes that don't fit or books you never plan to read, if they don't have a use and they don't bring you joy, get rid of them.

Keep your doctors appointments.
When you're feeling down it can be hard to want to go, but it's important to dig into those emotions. When you're feeling great, you may think that it's not the time to go, but working through different techniques and preparing for the down times is just as important. Care for yourself by committing to attending your sessions.

Take Your Time (https://goo.gl/ReW6c9)

At Williamsburg Therapy Group we know that it's not always easy coming to the decision to seek therapy, or, if you're already in therapy, to look for a new therapist or psychiatrist.

When you're looking for a therapist, it's important to spend the time that you need to find an office and therapist who you feel comfortable with.

One great way to go about finding a new therapist to ask friends and family for recommendations. If you don't feel comfortable doing that, spend the time reading through reviews and trying to understand a bit more about each practice that you are considering.

Take advantage of initial assessments to help gather a better understanding of the care that is available to you.

Lastly, trust your gut. You deserve the best mental health care available, so trust your gut about what that means to you.

Changes To Your Bedroom That Can Help You Get More Sleep (https://goo.gl/zuNfAs)

Sleep is important to your overall physical and mental health, so it's important that your bedroom isn't preventing you from restful nights. If you've been having trouble sleeping, consider making some of these changes to your bedroom.

Pick the right colors.
Bright colors can subconsciously trigger your senses, so opt for softer muted colors on your wall and for your bedding.

Splurge on a mattress.
A comfortable bed and supportive pillow are the most important items to help you fall asleep.

Keep your room tidy.
Clutter can be a distraction and even cause anxiety. Aim to keep your room tidy at all times. One good way to keep things neat is to keep furniture and possessions in the bedroom to a minimum.

Make it a technology-free zone.
Many sleep experts suggest that exposure to blue light long after sunset is a major contribution to insomnia. Keep your bedroom set up for one purpose and one purpose only: sleep.

For more tips for transforming your room, read the full article here: https://goo.gl/zuNfAs

Science Says Happy Couples Do These Things (https://goo.gl/ijkm3s)

No relationship is the same, but there are common behaviors and traits that connect relationships.

According to The All-or-Nothing Marriage: How the Best Marriages Work, which dissected numerous scientific findings, these are some of the traits of a happy marriage.

Happy couples interpret things the right way.
When spouses screw up, those in happy marriages see mistakes as temporary and external. Rather than attributing the screw up to the partner's character, they attribute it to context.

Happy couples work on their relationship.
Psychologist Raymon Knee says that partners with strong growth beliefs cultivate high-quality relationships by working and growing together. They view conflict as an opportunity to develop a stronger relationship.

Happy couples are grateful.
When one person feels gratitude, both partners are more satisfied with the relationship.

Happy couples have supportive friends.
It's unrealistic to believe that your spouse will be your everything emotionally. Those in happy relationships have supportive friends who can support them emotionally as well.

You can read the full list here: https://goo.gl/ijkm3s
