Anxiety is experienced as an excessive reaction to stress or in anticipation of future stressors. It typically includes physiological changes (e.g., elevated heart rate, muscle tension, and sleep problems), emotional components of fear, and mental components (e.g., "what-ifs” statements, dread, and constant worry). Anxiety can have crippling effects on quality of life and day-to-day functioning. We teach skills that address the cognitive, physical, and emotional aspects of anxiety and stress-related disorders that keep you from leading a fulfilling life.
During the consultation you and your therapist will discuss why you're interested in starting therapy, and review your goals for therapy. Your therapist can also answer any questions you may have about our services. Consultations are by secure video conferencing session, or by phone.
