Groups I Work With

    Are worries and fears preventing you from living your life the way you would like to? Are you experiencing excessive anxiety leading to panic attacks day and night for no apparent reason? It is normal to worry and feel tense or scared when under pressure or when facing stressful situations. However, when anxiety is constant and/or overwhelming and interferes with your relationships and activities of your daily life, that is when you need to seek professional help. Anxiety is experienced very differently from person to person. To name a few of the symptoms:
    *Suffering from intense anxiety attacks that strike without warning
    *Feeling panicky at the thought of mingling at a party
    *Struggling with a disabling fear of driving
    If you are starting to avoid certain situations or places because you are afraid of having a panic attack, please seek help.
    Axiety attacks are highly treatable. Coming to therapy can help you reduce or eliminate your anxiety symptoms and help you to take back control of your life. Give yourself the chance to get better. Call to make and appointment.
