Anxiety Counselor

Melissa Brentlinger, MA, LPC, LMFT

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of McAllen

If you worry a lot or obsess about negative outcomes you are probably stressed and/or anxious. This can take the form of ongoing, generalized anxiety or panic attacks.I help my clients to recognize their own signs of anxiety and to learn to be able to do this for themselves on their own. I teach relaxation skills and use hypnotherapy so they can enjoy being relaxed and truly get what it feels like. I help my clients learn to manage their thoughts and come up with stress-relieving thoughts.

Anxiety Counselor

Dean Sims, MAR, LCDC

Addiction Recovery Counselor

Available for Online Therapy

According to Dr. Kevin McCauley, M.D. stress is the cause of addiction as a disease. I say anxiety is the underlying cause of that stress. I will use all kinds of addictive behaviors to avoid feeling anxiety. The number one way most people manage their anxiety is with overeating. When I can start to manage my anxiety in a healthy way, my stress will go down and my stress response system which triggers urges and cravings for addictive behavior can relax. The process involves mindfulness and learning to feel and release your emotions.

Anxiety Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Available for Online Therapy

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.
