You are making one of the best investments you will ever make in yourself. Many people with anxiety attempt to control their thoughts, avoid, or perform behaviors to prevent unease or a negative outcome, only for worry to return. This feels intuitive, but actually prolongs distress long-term by reinforcing the ideas of intolerance and that there is something to fear. It's human nature to experience some discomfort. With Exposure Therapy, you can gradually minimize fears with support and thrive *in spite of* discomforts the brain, body, & life send your way. Let's replace the confinements of certainty with the freedom of uncertainty.

Your anxiety is relentless and has taken over every aspect of your life. You’ve struggled with it for so long but nothing seems to be able to get it to go away. You try, oh, believe me, you try. Regardless of what you do, how many times you do it, or how long you do it, the anxiety persists. Your mind is a playground for anxiety provoking, distressing and sometimes obsessive thoughts that are uncomfortable and sometimes even makes you question you as a person. Who would have thoughts like this? Why can't I let this go? What makes me so afraid of this? One thing is for certain, it doesn't seem like ANYTHING really works.

Anxiety is ruthless. What starts out as a helpful coping mechanism eventually turns into something that can overtake your entire life. Anxiety is helpful in moderation, however, for those with anxiety disorders there is no such thing as moderation. I specialize in treating anxiety disorders both as a solitary diagnosis and as part of a co-morbid struggle. I have experience working with eating disorders and chemical dependency and know how much of a struggle it can be to tackle that and an anxiety disorder.

I offer a therapy called Radically Open DBT (RO-DBT). It's a specialty treatment for people with excessive control - introverts, perfectionists, worriers, brooders, and the notably stubborn. When self-control is over-expressed, people struggle to authentically connect to others, effectively relax and recover, and cultivate openness to new information and ways of behaving that might make them happier in the long run. The following are associated with over-control: chronic anxiety, significant depression, anorexia nervosa, OCD, and social isolation.

As a result, we may experience fear, sadness, lack of motivation, or simply feeling lost.

I bring a wealth of life and professional experiences to the counseling practice with a 30-year career in biotech and business.

Hi! I'm Allie Wilson, MA, LPC, owner of Brave Steps Counseling, LLC. Anxiety manifests itself differently for each person, but often includes the words "what if?" and offers a way out through avoidance, worry, rituals and reassurance. These behaviors are often automatic and seem uncontrollable; however, they are not effective long-term and only serve to increase anxiety rather than provide true help. Some people feel bullied by their anxiety and despair of life ever changing. There is hope for a life that is not controlled by anxiety, obsessive thoughts or traumatic memories.

Not performing the obsessive rituals can cause great anxiety. A person's level of OCD can be anywhere from mild to severe, but if severe and left untreated, it can destroy a person's capacity to function at work, at school or even to lead a comfortable existence in the home.
