We all get worried from time to time but when the worry doesn’t seem to stop or when it becomes so debilitating that it interferes with daily life and relationships. talking to a therapist can help. A LMFT isn’t a medical doctor, and cannot prescribe medication, but can work with clients to learn ways to identify and manage symptoms of anxiety. In certain cases, a LMFT will refer a client to a physician for a medication evaluation and continue working with the client by using talk therapy and teaching self-soothing techniques that can reduce symptoms.
