I’ve spent years hearing from clients, colleagues, friends, family, and my self about how anxiety shows up in our lives.
I’ve learned that anxiety…
tells us we aren’t good enough
makes people “prove” themselves
plays with our emotions
makes people embarrassed
Does any of this sound familiar to you?
You could probably add to this list! Thankfully, over the years, I’ve been gathering some background on how to lower the volume on anxiety’s noisy voice.
During anxiety counseling, we can:
Separate your voice from that of anxiety
Decrease the frequency and intensity of anxious thoughts throughout the day or week
Increase the amount of time you spend enjoying your day
Take actionable steps toward your goals and dreams, without anxiety holding you back
Practice logical thinking so that it becomes your habit, rather than anxious thoughts taking over your brain
Explore what anxiety is doing in your life and what it’s trying to tell
Stop the spirals of anxious thoughts so that you can get back to what you want to do
You’ve taken the first step by starting to research what you can do about anxiety, and who might be able to help you.
Schedule a free phone consultation, during which we can also book your first session and send you paperwork.
Show up to your first session - we’ll review your priorities and goals, and get to know each other.
Typically, we’ll do weekly sessions for 4-6, and track your progress with outcome rating scales.
When you or I feel that it’s time to wrap up therapy and decide next steps, we can do so together. You can always return later if you decide you need support again.
