FREE Book:Simple Steps To Overcome Anxiety & Worrying

Do Any Of These Thoughts Sound Familiar To You?

  •  I can’t get my thoughts to stop going round and around.”
  • “I start thinking of all the things I have to get done and get overwhelmed.”
  • “I wake up with a feeling of dread and I don’t know why.”
  • “I can’t stop worrying about my children, whether they are doing well and questioning myself about whether I am doing enough to help them.”
  • “I lie awake at night, going over things that happened and what I said.”

Worry usually involves thoughts about negative events that might happen in the future or sometimes about things that you have done, or said, in the past that you wish you had handled differently. Often it involves worry about what other people think about you.

Everyone gets anxious sometimes, but if your worries and fears are so frequent that they interfere with your ability to function and relax, you may have an anxiety disorder.

Symptoms of Anxiety – Everyone’s experience is different but can include emotional and physical symptoms:

  • You know that you worry much more than you should
  • You have trouble controlling constant worries
  • You are not able to relax
  • You have a hard time concentrating
  • You have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep
  • You might feel tired all the time
  • You can have headaches, muscle aches, stomach aches, or unexplained pains
  • You experience irritability and mood swings.

By providing therapy remotely, by phone or video sessions, I help people access specialist help in the most convenient way. Read more about how remote sessions work Video & Phone Sessions.

In a supportive environment with a therapist who has over 25 years of experience you can learn how to reduce worrying by:

  • Learning a variety of relaxation and breathing strategies which can help you reduce your overall levels of stress and help you face anxiety-provoking situations.
  • Learning how Cognitive Therapy (CBT) helps you to distinguish between worries that require your attention and worries that are unnecessary.
  • Learning skills to manage anxious thoughts and to tackle fears that may have been holding you back.

There isn’t a cookie-cutter approach to treating anxiety. First, we will get to the root of the problem and then our sessions will go over coping strategies and homework tasks between sessions that are individually tailored to your particular worries and concerns.

While all your worries won’t disappear, you will be given strategies to manage them better and tools to reduce the impact they have on your life.

If after reading the booklet you feel ready to start working on reducing your anxiety but need support, I can help you overcome worrying in one-on-one individual counseling sessions.

Please let me know if  you have any questions after reading the booklet. Also, if you would like to read more, I have many articles and anxiety, what it is and how to overcome it in my Anxiety blog posts .

What Can I Do Right Now That Will Help?

When clients first come in to see me, the main concerns that come up again and again are:

  1. How can I feel less stressed, angry and overwhelmed?
  2. What should I do if I feel panicky?
  3. How can I stop worrying about everything: my children, partner, friends, work, my “to do” list….

So I put together a booklet with some strategies I am always giving to my clients to help them begin to feel less anxiety and to worry less.

Empowered to Combat Anxiety.

Dr. Allen has helped me through several difficult times. She has taught me tools to use to combat anxiety which is something I have dealt with my whole life. She has empowered me and given me strength that I didn’t know I had. I am so thankful!

Excellent Therapist!

Dr. Allen is a colleague of mine and she is an excellent therapist. She is warm, caring, and exceptional at her work. I refer clients to Dr. Allen and I highly recommend her if you are looking for a top notch therapist.

Thankful for Dr. Allen’s Help & Support.

Thank you for all of your support. I am finally feeling so much better. I never thought I would get to such a good place in my life. Your voice and words of encouragement were extremely helpful.

Highly Recommended.

I had heard great things about Dr. Allen from a friend so I decided to try her. I have had therapy in the past as I have experienced anxiety and depression for many years but this is the most productive therapy I have ever had. I have really learned a lot and felt very supported. I feel my mood has improved greatly and my depression has significantly decreased. I would definitely recommend her if you are looking for a therapist.

Dr. Allen Helped Me to Feel More Empowered

Dr. Allen has really helped me find my own voice. When I began therapy I would swing between being passive and doing whatever other people wanted me to do to being angry and frustrated. I have been on antidepressants for quite a few years but it wasn’t really working. Through therapy I have learned to listen to my own needs and to speak up. I used to worry that people wouldn’t like me if I didn’t agree with them but when Dr. Allen gave me the support I needed I challenged my fears. I spend a lot less time feeling angry and depressed now and I have really widened my social network. This is how I have always wanted to be but didn’t know how to get there. Dr. Allen has a very reassuring manner and makes you challenge yourself but by using small steps so you feel ready to do it. I have really come out of my shell and would recommend anyone who is feeling depressed to come and talk with her.

Worry & Panic Attacks Transformed by Dr. Allen

Last year I was so crippled by anxiety and panic attacks and I didn’t believe that anything or anyone would be able to help me. Since seeing you my life has changed forever and I am finally turning into the person that I always wanted to be…and the person I never thought I could be. You will be the person I call if I start to feel that way again.

Wendy T.

Trusted & Knowledgeable Therapist.

When I need to refer any of my patients for talk therapy I immediately think of Dr. Allen as she is wonderful at helping people with severe and complex issues really get to the root of their problems. She is very caring and knowledgeable and I have found her extensive experience really helps people to change their lives for the better.

Dr. Teresa Poprawski

If you are thinking about getting counseling and you’d like to talk to someone about the things that are troubling you, I am happy to help.
