Philip Kolba, MA

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

Parke Burgess, MA

Psychotherapist

3503 N Cheyenne St, Tacoma, Washington

Anxiety in moderate amounts is necessary for life: It motivates us to attend to problems, get things done, and meet challenges. It helps us grow and develop. But when there is too much it can overwhelm us. We can become frantic or paralyzed. And it just feels horrible! Sometimes we feel like we can't turn it off, get any relief, or just enjoy life. As you explore your experience with me in therapy, you can become more deeply aware of just how anxiety operates within you; you can become really intimate with it. As uncomfortable as this is at first, it has the paradoxical effect of bringing some measure of relief. The anxiety can now move through you and out in a new, healthier way.

Anxiety Counselor

Carolyn Ratley, LMFT, CMHS

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

2002 65th Ave W, Tacoma, Washington

Anxiety and stress is one of the most common issues children come in for counseling. It can be very difficult for children and their families to manage alone. I am honored to help families, children, and young adults who struggle with anxiety to find joy and peace again. Anxiety in children can manifest itself in health issues, school problems, peer problems, sleep issues, eating issues and even anger. Children feel safe and secure in my office, find tools to help them manage their anxiety, feel empowered instead of afraid and enjoy themselves in the process.

Anxiety Counselor

Gary Mayne, MA, LMHCA

Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate

1011 S L St. , Tacoma, Washington

Anxiety and stress are both pieces of the human experience for everyone. If one or both of the pieces stand in the way of what someone wants to do, then they may have become an issue that needs to be addressed. Through learning what makes a client anxious, when/where anxiety occurs, and approaching them uniquely and individually, clients can expect their anxiety to decrease, although never entirely go away. We are humans, not robots!
