" When you're looking for a Therapist, it's not an easy time. You’ve struggled to change behavior patterns, communicate better and gotten nowhere, Now you feel powerless as well as in a mess. If someone has mentioned you talking to a professional, you could often catch yourself anxiously focusing on what you imagine other people are thinking about you. You might be surprised at the amount of relief you can feel by talking to a caring, invested but objective professional about what's going on and getting some perspective. You can start exactly where you are. "

"Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is considered the "gold standard" for anxiety. Derailed by anxious thoughts? CBT tools work right away to defeat your negative thinking patterns with 50 cognitive methods to choose from. It takes more than just talking about your problems to transform your anxiety or blues. It's possible to get yourself unstuck from overwhelm, avoidance, and despair, but it requires intensive work, both in and between sessions. Like with any new skill, the more you practice, the faster and more effective you can be at shifting negative thoughts so they don't get in the way of your mood, confidence, and outlook. "
