Diane Peters Mayer
Clinical Social Work/Therapist, MSW, LSW
If you have anxiety attacks the distressing physical and mental symptoms may leave you feeling frightened, exhausted and even "crazy" at times. Depression may make it hard to just get out of bed in the morning. Conflict in your personal or professional life could have made you angry, dissatisfied, feeling lost or trapped. This is where I come in. Through our therapeutic relationship based on my deep respect for your feelings and uniqueness and with my clinical expertise, we journey down a path of healing toward a more rewarding and freer life for you.
My specialty is anxiety in all of its forms including school anxiety, panic attacks and performance anxiety. School anxiety treatment focuses on separation anxiety, test anxiety, speaking up in class, other worries. Panic and performance therapy targets symptoms that create the need to avoid situations or to flee to safety.
In addition to my therapy work I've written the following books: "Overcoming School Anxiety: How to Help Your Child with Separation, Tests, Homework, Bullies, Math Phobia, and Other Worries," "The Everything Health Guide to Controlling Anxiety," and "Conquering Ring Nerves."
