I have been counseling and coaching clients by phone
and email since I began private practice 18 years ago.
I create a unique step-by-step action plan with each
client, and use my therapeutic skills to build their
confidence to overcome their fears. Through my practice
and books I have helped thousands of anxious people
free themselves from the grip of anxiety to live full,
rich, and rewarding lives. My Overcoming School
AnxietyProgram is for parents
with school anxious children as well as adult students.
I can help you with:
- School Anxiety—Parents of school anxious
children or adult students are taught the tools to
help their child or themselves thrive and succeed
in school. The program includes: techniques to stop
anxiety from escalating, how to manage and cope with
the feelings and symptoms of anxiety, how to ease
school refusal, how to take tests successfully, how
to manage the homework load, how to approach and interact
with peers, how to stop avoidant behavior, how to
stop a panic attack, how to speak up in the classroom,
how to give class presentations, how to become a confident
and master student.
- Phobias—Animal phobias such
as spiders and dogs; Natural Environment phobias
such as fear of water and storms; Situational Phobias such
as public speaking and the fear of flying.
- Panic Attacks and Agoraphobia
- Stress Management
My anxiety program includes teaching you exercises
and techniques adapted from a range of disciplines:
behavioral and psychodynamic psychological theories,
yoga, breath work, theater arts, and sports psychology
for easing anxious symptoms in any situation. The ability
to be able to decrease symptoms quickly and to stop
being afraid of the disturbing symptoms that anxiety
produces will in time help you to overcome your anxiety.
Since anxiety is a mind/body condition my program is
holistic. Together we help you to make life changes
a little bit at a time. For example, making small dietary
changes will help to decrease the manufacture of adrenaline
and to increase your ability to handle stress.
How it Works
- You email to me all of your contact information
and a detailed history of your anxiety so I can determine
if my programs can help you.
- You work from a custom-designed program
- You receive exercises and techniques by email after
- You work on weekly assignments that are manageable
- You email what you have accomplished for the week
prior to our next session
- I am available to answer questions in between sessions
It takes determination, practice, and time to overcome
anxiety but the benefits of doing so are priceless.
You can take control of your anxiety instead of having
it control you.
