Anxiety Counselor

Francesca Licciardi, MA, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

401 9th ave N, Seattle, Washington

Similar in my work with depression I find that often anxiety is a product of mental constructs governed by ones past and anticipatory constructs of ones future. My approach is to strengthen the connection to the here and now and develop skills necessary to maintain a present centered state of mind and body. Body awareness strategies and techniques paired with cognitive restructuring serve as a basis for my work. Psychotherapy can be useful as well for targeting habitual behavioral tendencies and their rooted influences from our past in which we may want to challenge and develop more effective skills to replace.

Lower anxiety and stress with helpful tools for you individually, in relationships, or at work. Sometimes anxiety rises because of specific circumstances and for others it has always been there. Our culture adds to our anxiety levels and learning how to avoid excess stress can make a huge difference. Anxiety can also be a reaction to something that happened in our past. Let me help you lower your reactions to stress.

Karen Morton, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

9415 Roosevelt Way NE, Seattle, Washington

We live in an ever-increasing anxious world, and for those who struggle with anxiety, I can help you put your anxiety in it's place. Anxiety and stress can be helpful, but only to a certain degree- and I want to help you lower your stress from a 9-10 to a 2-3. We will work together to create coping skills to immediately address the pressing stress. Then, I often use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) or Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to get to the root of what is triggering your anxiety. In the end, I want to give you the tools so you can handle any new stressor without fear.

Anxiety Counselor

Darchelle Worley, MA, LMHCA

Psychotherapist

3417 Fremont Ave N, Ste 314, Seattle, Washington

Anxiety is on the rise - and it pops up in many shapes and forms slowly or suddenly, taking up so much of your mental and emotional space inside that nothing else gets to flourish. However, change is possible! Through a process of coming to know you, your story, the triggers for your anxiety and why it seemingly capsizes your boat leaving you to drown in fatigue and despair, we will find a path forward and you will regain a sense of control and internal strength. In my work I have been honored to help my clients over time to find relief and hope as they regain their lives - or for the first time, to build their life without the crippling experience of anxiety taking over any or all of it.

Anxiety Counselor

Emily Wood, MA, LMHC, NCC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

2722 Eastlake Avenue East, Suite #300, Seattle, Washington

In a world that feels increasingly chaotic, anxiety and stress are common challenges that can feel anywhere from overwhelming to debilitating. I enjoy working with clients as they practice new skills to feel calm. I provide psycho-education about the connection between mind and body, along with practical tools to reclaim areas of agency clients have in their own mental health and wellness. If you feel overwhelmed in your work or at home, counseling can act as a "reset button" to slow down and evaluate what could be different. If you feel fearful or uncertain with racing thoughts or panic attacks, counseling can be the first step in finding relief.

Anxiety Counselor

Eric Borgh, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

411 West Mercer St, Seattle, Washington

Anxiety is rough- you likely know this. You might think "why is this happening to me? Why does this phase me like it does? This isn't anything big." You also may be under intense stress and perhaps even intensely traumatic situations and just now starting to feel the impact. I offer helpful practical tools to deal with anxiety in how you think and how you breath. But I don't stop there as those things are often un-effective, as you may have already found, if not partnered with a deep understanding of how to work with, on an emotional level, messy feelings.
