Anxiety is a common reaction to fear, but you don't have to live with it.
Anxious, racing thoughts keeping you up at night?
Occasional anxiety is a part of life. You may feel anxious when faced with a problem at work, before a big test, or before making an important decision. But anxiety disorders involve more than the occasional fear or worry. For a person with anxiety disorder, the occasional worry does not go away and usually gets worse over time. Now that we’re coming out of the pandemic, individuals that normally didn’t have excessive worry, have been triggered from the incredibly difficult year and a half that all of us faced. The good news is, an anxiety therapist can help!
What is Anxiety?
You may be feeling:
- Irritability, fatigue, or distraction.
- Racing thoughts.
- Having problems sleeping (hard to fall asleep, nightmares, hard to stay asleep).
- Thinking, “I’m not enough.”
- Thinking, “I feel so much better when I’m taking…” (fill in the drug of choice here)
- Trying to put on a good face for the outside world but your insides are screaming.
Anxiety disorders come in many forms: generalized anxiety disorder, frequent panic attacks, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), social anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and specific phobias. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness among Americans—it’s estimated that about 40 million adults struggle with an anxiety disorder in the U.S. alone.

How I Help Clients with Anxiety
At the first session of Anxiety Management counseling, we are building your anxiety toolkit so that you can identify triggers and have a few strategies to practice before you leave the office.
I will listen to your stories, and you and I will consider which stories are helping you and which stories we need to let go of.
You will begin to heal yourself from the inside out and have the confidence to face difficult situations in the future without having to numb or trying to control everything and everyone around you.
