Anxiety Counseling

Feel more grounded, present and empowered

Counseling for Anxiety in San Jose, California, Florida, and Puerto Rico.

You wish you could just turn your mind off

That sense of worry and self doubt shows up in you work, life, or social interactions.  You're constantly replaying in your mind interactions you've had with others, anticipating what might go wrong during your day, or double checking how your write your emails. 

Your mind just keeps ruminating and overthinking even the smallest decisions.  


It's exhausting, overwhelming, and draining

You’re tired of feeling:

  • not fully present or able to actually enjoy the positive aspects of your life.  

  • worried and lack of confidence, which have affected how you show up in your life

  • like the doom and gloom radio is the only station playing in your mind



It's time. You're ready to prioritize your own emotional well-being.

You're looking for some relief and tools to help you feel more grounded and present.  You'd like to slow your thoughts down so you can start to respond rather than react when things get hard.  You want to show up as your authentic self and reconnect to what's most important to you,


However you've arrived here, I'm so glad you're here and taking time to see if anxiety counseling is right for you.
