Therapy for Anxiety
If you frequently experience…
Constant feelings of dread
A pounding heart, the racing heightened by the slightest of frights
Anticipating the worst, regardless of evidence
Physical symptoms like headaches, sweating, shakes and jumpiness, trouble concentrating, a frequent need to urinate and stomach uneasiness.
Or if you often think…
“It’s safer to stay at home.”
“But what if…”
“I can’t breath / do this / relax / stop / switch off!”
“They or I could be in danger!”
…Then I’m glad you are reading this.
These signs and symptoms are common in those suffering from a medical condition called anxiety disorder.
While difficult anxiety symptoms can affect many aspects of your life, there is hope for a calm and peace.
Let's work together.
The evidence-based therapy we provide often enables clients to laugh freely, relax fully, and ground themselves in the face of fear.
