Anxiety Treatment Worry Less, Live More
Worry is a natural part of being a human, but carrying that stress around day after day can disrupt our work, our relationships, and our inner peace. Understanding how our emotions impact our fears and worries can be enormously beneficial in disrupting the patterns of anxiety and help us feel more in control of our lives.

Your first session will be a deep dive into your reasons for seeking therapy. We'll talk about the issues you're currently facing, what you've done in the past, and what your goals are going forward. You'll have the opportunity to ask questions and take an active part in planning the path for future sessions.
There are dozens of therapy styles in practice today. The biggest difference between emotionally focused therapy (EFT) and methods like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is that EFT seeks to work with your emotions, not against them. The goal of EFT is emotional intelligence, and learning to use your emotions in a positive and constructive way in dealing with life's challenges.
