It takes courage to take the first step. I invite you to do just that and move forward from where you are to where you want to be.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Madison, NJ
You know you are not any fun to be around and your unhappiness is making everyone around you concerned and miserable. What can they do? They are sympathetic to a point, but enough already. You feel pressure to feel better or be better, but you just don’t. The more you pretend, the more disconnected you feel. I use an integrated treatment approach and work in two steps: assessment & action because I don’t just want you to understand how you got here. I want to help you feel better.
Anxiety is . . . + Being fast asleep and violently waking up because your heart pounding. + Stomach aches. Headaches. Muscle aches. Breaking out in a rash for no reason. + Constant mind chatter: What if? What’s wrong? Am I okay? + feeling on edge, irritable and snapping at the smallest annoyance. Anxiety doesn't mean that you are crazy. I can help you not only learn skills to better manage these symptoms, but also overcome those troublesome thoughts and worries that are disrupting life
Loss has crashed down on you. Loss of a loved one, a home, a job, a community you loved, your own cancer diagnosis. Your feelings express themselves in unwanted places. You need to talk, but don’t want to burden those around you. You worry that if you start crying you will never stop. The way you coped in the past isn't working for you anymore. You don't know what to do or where to begin.
