In brief: Absolutely yes
You can work with a psychotherapist on your anxiety.
The symptoms you describe could be part of different types of problems, which can be differentiated in an evaluation -- then treatment plan developed. Depending on how severe this is, medications could be recommended but the choice to use them is yours. Some can be very helpful in managing symptoms, while you're working in psychotherapy.

In brief: TO A DEGREE
Yes you can do therapy and do relaxation and meditation and deep breathing and get involved with biofeedback.
Eat healthy and reduce caffeine and alcohol and other drugs and exercise. If too severe however these may not be sufficient and a combination with medication will be the most beneficial. See a therapist or a psychiatrist and discuss your symptoms and se what is best.
