Anxiety Therapy in Arizona

Life comes with a lot of constant worries and concerns. Most people who start therapy for anxiety feel like nothing they do stops the influx of negative, worrisome thoughts and self doubt. Perhaps you can relate. Maybe you just can't seem to "turn your mind off", you have a strong inner critic that is constantly telling you that you fall short, or you struggle in social interactions because you are always worried about what others are thinking of you. You may feel insecure in relationships and experience a constant fear of abandonment. As a result, you may notice yourself needing excessive reassurance from your partner/friend, overapologizing, or automatically assuming someone must be upset with you if they don't respond in a timely manner to your texts/calls/emails.  Stuck in negativity and often doubting yourself, you may feel constantly on edge.

Woman Struggling with Anxiety, Worry, Overthinking

If these sound true for you, I want you to know that even though you might feel like a failure for needing help, that couldn't be further from the truth. It takes courage to acknowledge what you are going through and to ask for help. We as human beings are imperfect by nature.  Embracing our weaknesses and struggles provide us with an opportunity to learn more about ourselves and heal those parts of ourselves that are hurting. You don't have to suffer alone anymore.

Do any of the following feel familiar?

  • You can't seem to relax or quiet your mind, leaving you exhausted and stressed. 

  • You often worry about the future and play out worst-case scenarios in your mind.

  • You are able to manage things fairly well on a day-to-day basis, but on the inside, you feel you are never good enough and often compare yourself to others. 

  • You "freeze up" in the company of others, or avoid certain situations altogether, driven by a fear of rejection, judgment or criticism.

  • You feel irritable and are easily set off by what you feel are "little" things.  

Helping You Break Free from The Cycle of Anxiety

It's possible to feel better. Imagine being able to....

  • Let go of constant worry and self-doubt

  • Feel more secure and connected in your relationships with others

  • Feel more in control over your mind, instead of your mind being in control of you.

  • Stop letting anxiety interfere with doing the things that are important to you in life.

  • Feel more confident in yourself and hopeful about the future.

Overcoming Anxiety through Therapy

How Anxiety Therapy Works

Therapy for anxiety consists of one-on-one sessions that help you gain an understanding of your anxiety, gain practical tools to reduce and manage anxiety, and feel empowered in life. In addition to listening to your struggles, I will share what neuroscience tells us about what's happening within you, and address the root cause of your struggles. I play an active role. I've helped people struggling with worry and anxiety to find their way to feeling more calm. My clients discover that it's possible to be productive without living life at a frenzied pace; and walk away with practical tools to manage emotions, have more clarity, and possess greater self-confidence. Here’s how it will work step-by-step:

1.    First, I provide a safe, non-judgmental space so you can feel comfortable sharing your struggles with me. 
2.   We will work together to discover what your goals are in therapy and in life.
3.   Through exploring your family history and your story, I will start to get a picture of where your challenges stem from.

4.   I will start helping you with immediate concerns such as managing difficult emotions, so you can develop tools to tolerate distress.
5.   Keeping your unique goals in mind, we’ll figure out what’s needed to help you reach them. EMDR and IFS are very effective therapies that I utilize, which have been shown to reduce anxiety through resolving past experiences that may have contributed to your anxiety. 

6.   Over the course of our sessions, you will start making progress towards the life you desire and deserve.
