"What if this happens? What if that happens?"
"Did I say the right thing?"
"I wonder what they are thinking about me?"
"I can't believe I did that!"
Are self criticism, judgment, and doubt always playing on the radio station in your head? Do you know stuff shouldn't bother you, but it does? And it keeps on bothering you?
Constantly feeling anxiety, worry, and panic is no way to live this one unique life you have to live. It's exhausting. And it lures you into spending all of your time and energy trying to manage the anxious feelings and thoughts, trying to make them go away, trying to make sense of them, or worse, coming up with elaborate plans and excuses to avoid situations that might make you feel anxious, shaky, afraid, or panicky.
Your life doesn't need to keep shrinking down like this, getting smaller and smaller. Your life doesn't need to be something you just get through, always waiting for the sky to fall.
You CAN Break Free from Anxiety and Panic
You CAN overcome worry and achieve more peace, presence, and relaxation in your life. You CAN feel better. You CAN grow in your life instead of just getting through each day.
Whatever you are experiencing - overanalyzing things to the point of dread, wanting to AND not wanting to be around others, anxious feelings all the time, racing thoughts, feeling overwhelmed and extremely stressed, outbursts of irritability and anger, being hard on yourself and constantly beating yourself up - I can help you feel better, think better, and enjoy your life and relationships more.
I Can Help You
Maybe you’ve tried therapy before and came away thinking “I already know all that, I didn’t learn anything new. Analyzing my past didn’t help my anxiety at all". Maybe you've tried medication and ended up feeling more anxious, either from the medication or from worries about taking medication.
Our work together will be different. However you got here, you got here. Together we will deal with what is happening for you now and increase your ability to deal effectively with what is arising day to day, moment to moment, so you can grow in your life, and enjoy your life and enjoy your relationships.
From your very first session, we will be focused on finding you new tools, skills, strategies, and perspectives that will offer you relief and space from your anxious thoughts and feelings. I will teach you how to catch your thoughts as they are happening, and how to effectively talk back to them so that your nervous system calms down and you calm down.
You will learn how to think better which results in feeling better. And who doesn't want to feel better?! I can help you feel better, too.
