Life's challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they're supposed to help you discover who you are. –Bernice Johnson Reagan

Anxiety is a normal part of life, but when anxiety is accompanied by feeling hopeless or out of control, it's time to get help. Therapy can help to identify and change underlying patterns of thought and behavior that are contributing to these feelings of anxiety and can provide strategies to decrease the pain and restore a sense of peace and competence.

If we want to
uncover our deepest recesses of joy and peace, we must first face and conquer our anxieties. See the About Therapy page for a deeper look at this process. We also offer group therapy for anxiety and anxiety related issues such as panic disorder, hypochondriasis and eating disorders. Learn more about our anxiety support group at the following link: Group Therapy.
