Anxiety


Anxiety

Anxiety comes on for many different reasons and situations. It can hit you out of nowhere or it can be consistent throughout your day. You can feel ready to go out, but when the time comes, you retreat and decide you aren't going or you worry so much about going, but then once you get there or do the thing you were worried about, you are fine. You replay an event, a conversation or experience over and over. You are indecisive, insecure and fearful of so many things that it seems easier to just stay in your own bubble. Your mind is no longer yours. You want to stop behaviors that make you feel crazy, but the fear of stopping is worse than continuing. 

If you can relate to any of this or other anxiety stressors, I can help. 

I work with clients experiencing all types of anxiety or stress as well as obsessive compulsive disorder. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, a research based treatment to help you learn how to identify negative patterns of thinking, feeling, and living that increase anxiety. I use Mindfulness, Self-Compassion and Exposure Therapy to help you learn to tolerate feelings of discomfort, while working towards freedom from anxious thoughts and behaviors. 

As we work together, you will begin to feel a sense of compassion toward yourself while facing your fears. 

You will stop running away and avoiding things that make you anxious and get in the way of living the life you want. You will become aware of unhealthy behaviors that maintain the anxiety verse healthy behaviors that help you break free of anxiety.

You will be able to connect with others without letting anxiety or fear get in the way. You will feel more comfortable in your own skin, and feel more accepting of yourself and others.
