Anxiety Counseling for Women​

Do you feel trapped in this cycle?

You live with an almost constant sense of stress, worry, or overwhelm…like it’s always lingering right under the surface. It might show up like a need to control everything (even things that cannot be controlled) or a racing heart every time you’re placed in a social situation. You don’t feel comfortable or confident in your own skin, and that spills into your relationship with your partner, your kids, and even your boss.

Sure, you could keep living this way…but you don’t want to anymore. You’re ready to get to the root of this and begin thinking, feeling, and responding differently.

WHAT WE CAN WORK ON

Anxiety counseling can help you break unhelpful patterns and build new skills to manage whatever life throws your way.

Anxiety therapy treats more than just symptoms.

It helps you identify and address the underlying causes. So you don’t just feel better—you are better.

How we’ll work together

You may have been to therapy to address your anxiety before, but didn’t experience the relief you were seeking. I know how frustrating that can be and I commend you for considering getting support again.

I take a very active approach to anxiety counseling. That means I’m going to do more than just let you talk (although there will be lots of that!)—I’m going to actually engage in conversation, brainstorming, and skill building with you.

Through hearing your story, I’ll begin to build a picture of what your challenges are. We’ll start by addressing any immediate concerns you have, such as skills to cope with difficult emotions or life situations you’re navigating, as well as setting some larger goals for therapy. 

As you begin to manage your day-to-day challenges, we’ll be able to spend time exploring what’s caused this anxiety and addressing it at its core. Over the course of our sessions, you will start making progress towards the life you desire.

Common Questions about Anxiety Counseling

Anxiety looks a little bit different for everyone—it’s not always just feeling worried. Here are some common symptoms:

  • – Nervousness, restlessness or being tense
  • – Feelings of danger, panic or dread
  • – Rapid breathing or hyperventilation
  • – Increased or heavy sweating
  • – Trembling or muscle twitching
  • – Weakness or lethargy
  • – Difficulty focusing or thinking clearly about anything other than the thing you’re worried about
  • – Insomnia
  • – Obsessions about certain ideas, a sign of obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • – Nervousness in social situations, a sign of social anxiety disorder 
  • – Anxiety surrounding a particular life event or experience that has occurred in the past, a sign of post-traumatic stress disorder

You’re absolutely right—stress, overwhelm, and worry are all parts of the human experience (especially in this day and age!). When these things start to impact your day-to-day functioning or flow over into multiple areas of your life, however, it’s usually a sign that therapy might be helpful for you.

When it comes to treating anxiety symptoms, research shows that therapy is usually the most effective option. That’s because anxiety therapy – as opposed to anxiety medication – treats more than just symptoms to the problem.

My fee for a therapy session is $285 for 45-55 minutes.

Navigating insurance is complicated, so please read carefully to avoid any misunderstandings.

Like most private mental health practitioners, I am considered an “out-of-network” provider. This means that some of my clients pay fully out of pocket, while others pay my fee up front and then receive partial reimbursement from their insurance provider.

In order to use your insurance then, you must have out-of-network benefits and reach your yearly deductible before reimbursement begins. After you’ve met your deductible, you’ll only be responsible for your copay/coinsurance, which is determined by your plan.

In my experience, reimbursement is common and many of my clients are reimbursed for 50% to 80% for the cost of their sessions if they have out-of-network mental health coverage.

I am partnered with “Mentaya,” a platform that makes it easy to check if you have out-of-network benefits, and then claim them.

When you reach out, we will discuss your unique challenges for therapy, and I will also check for your out-of-network benefits (so you don’t need to spend time on the phone with the insurance company). Most insurance companies will list your OON benefits immediately, so we can know how much you’ll have covered. 

When it comes to claiming them, the process is even easier. With “Mentaya,” you do not need to mail any claims to your insurance company, “Mentaya” does this step automatically for you. You would simply pay for therapy as normal, and then once you’ve met your deductible, “Mentaya” will begin reimbursing you according to your OON benefits.

If you’re going to get the most out of anxiety counseling, it’s important that you’re working with the right therapist.
