NW Anxiety Solutions

I know finding a therapist can be challenging and finding an anxiety specialist can be even harder. Where do you find someone who specializes in OCD, pediatric OCD, PANDAS/PANS, selective mutism, panic disorder, emetaphobia, and social anxiety? It can seem overwhelming.

Then there are anxiety related disorders such as Body focused repetitive disorders, tics, tourettes, misophonia and others.

It can be embarrassing to talk about anxiety behaviors. Many people wonder if even therapists will think their crazy for having intrusive thoughts or repetitive behaviors. They think they aren’t normal. Anxiety specialists know what they are doing and normalize these behaviors. They offer support and understanding instead of judgment.

How do you know when clinicians are skilled anxiety specialists. What questions do you ask?

I work together with individuals and families to focus on what is best for people and families struggling with anxiety and related disorders.

I also provide consultation for therapists wanting to learn more about an anxiety specialty career. I want to increase the number of clinicians out there to serve clients in need.
