Do You Want to Find Peace in Your Mind, Heart, and Body?
Do your thoughts constantly bounce from worry to worry, even about things you can't control? Do you feel nervous all day and find it impossible to relax? Do you become fixated on specifics, running worst-case scenarios through your mind over and over again? Have you experienced heart palpitations, shortness of breath, or constant physical discomfort? Are you unable to sleep at night and exhausted all day?
Living with anxiety can make you feel out of control. You may not remember the last time you could slow down your thoughts and relax. Maybe you wonder if you will ever find peace of mind again. Do you wish you could find a way to calm persistent anxiety, live in the present moment, and enjoy life again?
You Don't Need to Suffer From Anxiety Alone
Many people suffer from persistent worry. Although it may seem that others around you have a magic ability to cope with their worries and fears, like you, everyone has an inner life. Often, you must put on a professional face to navigate the world. But, you don't need to hide your inner turmoil.
Anxiety can have serious consequences for your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing. It may cause you to experience the symptoms of insomnia, including exhaustion and daily disorientation. You may experience heart palpitations, shortness of breath, or other markers of a panic attack when your stress becomes too great. Anxiety may prevent you from engaging fully in the world around you and cut you off from joyful experiences. Thankfully, with help, you can stop living a stunted life. I can help you find the ability to let anxiety go and discover peace and purpose.
You Can Reject Worry and Embrace Joy
I have specialized in anxiety counseling for 30 years, with a focus on stress management and mindfulness exercises. I offer traditional talk therapy, during which you and I will discuss the roots of your stress and worries in an open, comfortable atmosphere. I also offer a unique 'Walk And Talk' therapy option. You and I will take a simple walk through Pennsylvania's beautiful farm country and discuss the issues plaguing you. Walk and Talk therapy promotes the health of mind and body together. While your muscles are moving and your blood is flowing, you may find yourself able to open up and develop problem-solving techniques that you hadn't considered before.
I often challenge clients to use exercise to confront stress and anxiety. Walk and Talk therapy is only one of the tools we can explore together. We can also work on self-discovery, so that you might dig deep within yourself and bring your deepest fears and dreams to light. We can acknowledge your worries without letting them consume you. If you are ready for change, I can help you transfer anxious energy into positive engagement. You can enjoy healthy growth and happiness. You deserve to value yourself again.
I'm Afraid That Talking About My Problems Will Give Them Power
Many people believe that they must shove down or hide their feelings. They worry that talking about problems makes those problems real. But bringing hidden issues to light is the only way to acknowledge, understand, and work through them. When you open up to another person, you take the first steps toward healing. You stop fighting alone.
Won't I be Judged by Others If I Seek Counseling?
There is no shame in going to the doctor with a physical ailment, and I believe there is no shame in visiting a therapist when you are in emotional pain. Our minds and bodies are connected, and neither can be fully healthy if we ignore the well being of the other.
I'm Worried About The Cost of Therapy
Every day, we make investments in what is important to us. You might get your hair done, pay for a gym membership, or make payments on your home. Therapy is a similar investment in your emotional freedom. In addition, most insurance companies reimburse up to 60%-80% of the cost of therapy.
Break Free of the Damaging Cycles of Anxiety
