    My Approach to Anxiety Treatment in North Carolina 

    When you meet with me for online therapy, my initial goal is to get to know you. First, I’ll learn more about the issues that are bringing you into counseling. Once I understand the challenges you’re having, I will help you establish a baseline sense of calm. With this, you can feel confident tackling the hard things that come up in anxiety treatment.
    When you’re ready, we will discuss your past and present to determine the cause of your anxiety symptoms. Then, we can address these issues head-on so you can pack them away in your mind, move forward, and live a happy life.
