Anxiety Counselor

Robert Nemerovski, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

3628 Sacramento Street, San Francisco, California

Racing pulse? Sweaty palms? Tight chest? Shortness of breath? Difficulty thinking clearly? A little anxiety keeps us alert and is a healthy, useful human function. A lot of anxiety can distract us, make us physically uncomfortable, steal our sleep,lead us to avoid important activities in life, and even increase our risk for serious illness. I help clients decrease their suffering from excessive anxiety by working on several fronts: reducing uncomfortable symptoms by increasing coping and relaxation skills; examining and changing anxiety-provoking ways of thinking; and getting to the root causes of the anxiety in order to minimize recurrences and develop mastery over excessive anxiety.

Anxiety Counselor

Elizabeth Hayes, Psy.D, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

1195 Valencia Street, Suite 4, San Francisco, California

Anxiety can be difficult for some to identify and sometimes it's hard to distinguish anxiety from depression. Anxiety and depression can be so closely knit that teasing them apart can be the first step towards generating understanding and emotional change. I will work collaboratively with you to understand what your personal and unique experience is with your anxiety. We will explore your history and make links between your past and present to help increase awareness and develop new ways of coping with your anxiety. My style is warm, empathic, and collaborative and I will work hard to help you better understand and manage your anxiety.

Everyone experiences anxiety at some point, but for some the anxiety is so frequent or intense that it interferes with their lives or even triggers panic attacks. I use Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to help my clients get a sense of control over their own anxiety. We collaborate to learn skills to reduce the frequency or intensity of the anxious feelings, to tolerate the anxiety when it does occur so they can still function through it, and to practice habits that reduce stress and improve general mental health.

Anxiety Counselor

Judith Wyatt, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

870 Market St., Ste. 968, San Francisco, California

Looking at the symptoms of the anxiety, we will identify the onset and the triggers. Anxiety may be a constriction of excitement, a cover for sadness or loneliness, a pushing away of anger. We will look for underlying feelings, past traumas or losses, negative belief patterns that may underlie the anxiety and work them through, choosing from a variety of techniques. We can create affirmations and practice relaxation techniques or guided visualization that apply to your particular situation. At all times we will make sure we are going at your pace, and that we are doing whatever we need to make you feel safe and relatively relaxed with me.

Anxiety Counselor

Theo Reynolds, RC

Relationship Counselor

Anxiety is one of the most prevalent problems that so many of us face in our lives. It can feel completely overwhelming sometimes, to the point that even panic attacks are a result. But you don't have to keep suffering from the debilitating effects of anxiety. We've learned so much about how the brain is wired and what causes anxiety. I use methods that help you become more solid in your nervous system so that you are no longer ruled by your overwhelming feels of stress and anxiety. You can have more peaceful days that will allow you to live your life with more aliveness and contentment.

Anxiety Counselor

Amelia Katkov, MA, MFTI

MFTI

1795 Union Street at Octavia, San Francisco, California

It can feel scary and deeply lonesome to struggle with anxiety stress. I work with clients navigating acute symptoms of anxiety including negative self-talk, cyclical and catastrophic thought patterns, repetitive behaviors, loss of sleep, and difficulty with time management. When appropriate, I employ concrete CBT tools to aid in some immediate relief in tandem with traditional and interpersonal talk therapy to explore the root of the anxiety and provide long-term relief. My goal is to help individuals build a "tool box" of anxiety and stress management tools they can carry with them throughout their lives.

Anxiety Counselor

Maureen Fiorelli, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

582 Market Street, Suite 312, San Francisco, California

I use mindfulness, meditation and breathing techniques with my clients who are experiencing stress and anxiety. I often give my clients homework (writing assignments) if they are interested in this. I find that giving clients practical tools to use in their daily life are most helpful when a client struggles with anxiety or panic attacks. We also look at negative thought patterns that may be contributing to the anxiety.

Anxiety Counselor

Kyle Corsiglia, LMFT

You will develop more inner peace and self acceptance benefitting you in all areas of your life.

Anxiety Counselor

Zak Forrest, Zachary Forrest, LMFT

Licensed Psychotherapist

423 Gough St, San Francisco, California

Anxiety and stress are felt when life overwhelms the capacity to experience. When events are too much to bear, too much to make sense of, or tolerate, we feel stress or anxiety. If unable to be with challenging life events we are left in this anxious state, held hostage by what cannot be digested or made sense of. I help people decrease stress and anxiety by increasing their ability to more fully inhabit themselves and be with their own experiences so that events of the past and present can be lived in and more comfortably felt. A sense of self, self-confidence, capacity, and control is restored.

Anxiety Counselor

Daryl Temkin, Ph.D

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Available for Online Therapy

Anxiety and stress seem to the two factors that are running most people's lives. Between, work, performances, home, family, friends, returning phone calls and emails and all the additional pressures of life, stress and anxiety can simply become overwhelming. Counseling and psychotherapy has an outstanding track record for helping people cope with their anxieties and stressors in life. The therapeutic relationship established by a professional counselor often substantially decreases and relieves the wave of anxiety that can paralyze anyone. Counseling along with if needed medical intervention will under most circumstance return needed control, comfort and success.

Anxiety Counselor

Dietmar Brinkmann, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

2120 Market St #205, San Francisco, California

The key to overcoming excessive stress and anxiety is to understand the role of mind and body in regulating your nervous system. Learning to soothe and relax your body changes your mind and general outlook on life. And taking conscious control over your thoughts has a calming effect on your body’s nervous system. My integrative mind/body approach to psychotherapy offers you effective learning strategies to join the power of your mind with the innate relaxation response of your body. I can also help you addressing other issues that often lie at the root of anxiety such as relationship conflict or disconnect, intimacy issues, workplace stress, low self-confidence, depression, and trauma.

Anxiety Counselor

Natalie M. Mills, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

870 Market St., Ste. 1055, San Francisco, California

There is an almost infinite list of causes for anxiety and stress, probably a few more if you live in a metropolitan area. Maybe your anxiety is decades old from trauma, family of origin, or chemically related. Perhaps it's situational and can be attributed to a recently suffered trauma, is work related, or relationship related. When you are stressed out or anxious, your brain doesn't function optimally. Instead, it functions in crisis mode and impairs your decision making ability and leaves you feeling too drained for the rest of your life. I will help you to regain your control by giving you concrete strategies and tools to manage them.
