Is anxiety taking over your life?
Does it feel like you can’t control it no matter how hard you try? Does trying to ignore and distract yourself only make the thoughts get louder?
You might have noticed that your anxious thoughts can spiral off on their own. As a result, you feel hopeless or depressed when thinking about certain situations. But, you are not alone in this. Our approach to anxiety treatment focuses on the underlying causes of your anxiety. We often think that we know why we are anxious in the moment. But, we don’t realize that we’ve spent a lifetime creating unhelpful thought processes. In the end, these only help us avoid the source of our anxiety.
Have you experienced any of the following?
- Nervousness, restlessness, or tension
- Feelings of danger, panic, or dread
- Rapid breathing or hyperventilation
- Increased or heavy sweating
- Trembling or muscle twitching
- Weakness or lethargy
- Difficulty focusing or thinking clearly about anything other than the thing you’re worried about
- Obsessions about certain ideas, a sign of obsessive-compulsive disorder
- Anxiety surrounding a particular life event or experience that has occurred in the past. This can be a sign of post-traumatic stress disorder

Our Approach to Anxiety Treatment in Orlando, FL
Once you schedule an initial consultation call with us, we will take a few moments to learn more about you. We will get a general idea of what has brought you to anxiety treatment. If we are a good fit for you, we will schedule your first 80-minute session. You will complete the online paperwork (approx. 8-10 minutes to complete). It will include an intake assessment to help us understand your specific needs. Once you complete all the electronic paperwork, we will contact you. Then, we will schedule your first therapy session.
The first session is 80-minutes and will include the following:
Building a connection with the therapist so that you feel as comfortable as possible. The first session can always bring a bit of nerves. So, we do our best to answer any questions or ease any stressors. We will review the intake paperwork and give you the space and time that you need to process your past and any related trauma. Together, we will explore what symptoms you are currently experiencing, and what current life stressors may add to them. We will also create a treatment plan during that time.
Your goals for counseling will be clearly outlined
Your anxiety therapist will create the treatment plan based on your needs and discuss it with you. The plan helps you and the therapist have a point of reference to answer questions. This may include questions such as “How often are therapy sessions needed?” “Are there any improvements within my initial symptoms?” “Is therapy working? If so, how?” etc.
Before the end of your first session, you will be able to schedule your next session (60-minutes). We will continue to work on your goals for therapy and provide a judgment-free space for you to process, heal, and grow. The therapist will offer recommendations to helpful resources. This may include books, videos, articles, and more based on your preference(s).
