I have experience treating anxiety, depression, peer relationships, and other traumatic life experiences.
Moving through life we collect stressors, unhealthy or poor coping skills, negative thoughts, traumas and more. Collecting these experiences may lead you to feel lost, unprepared, and overwhelmed. However they manifest, realigning with yourself and working through these life experiences can be a journey that we take together. We will work together to address your needs and goals in a non-judgmental, safe environment where you can better understand yourself and find progress forward.

In a world as vast as ours, it can be easy to feel lost. Societal pressures, social media and marketing may send a message that you are somehow not enough; that being your own unique self is somehow lacking. You may be experiencing feelings of anxiety, worthlessness, and depression. These internal experiences rarely stay internal for long, and you may find yourself lashing out at classmates, coworkers, and loved ones. You are not alone. Many people from young children to teenagers and young adults feel as though they are not doing enough, or that they don’t belong. You do belong, you are enough, and you are worthy of a life filled

This is especially true when we stray off our personal course and begin to feel out of balance. This may present as increased anger, anxiety, depression, relationship conflicts, substance use, or other emotional symptoms. At first it may be very subtle, but then you realize that it’s getting in the way of you being able to live your best life. Today is the day that you listened to your messages.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.

If you're looking for a Columbia anxiety therapist, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counseling in Columbia.
