“Without fear, there cannot be courage”
– Christopher Paolini
My name is Angela, and if you struggle with anxiety, you’re in the right place to get help.
I appreciate the courage that it took to look for support for the challenges that you’re facing.
Now, more than ever, our lives are stressful and overwhelming. Thoughts swirl and swirl and you might find yourself unable to settle the thoughts enough to sleep. You might worry about your kids, or your job, or your relationships, or keeping up with the constant changes in our society as we all struggle with the pandemic. You might have trouble communicating what you need from your family and friends, especially during really stressful moments. You might know of someone else who is going through something that seems so much harder than what you’re going through, yet they seem to be coping just fine. You might wonder why you’re not.
Anxiety can be powerful. It can stop you from going to certain places, or finishing something, or enjoying a social function, or attempting something big, or even just leaving the house at all. It’s really common, and you’re not alone.
If you’ve never been to a therapy session before, it may seem like another thing to stress about, but that’s the first place where I can help. My practice is completely online so there is no travel for you and sessions are in the comfort of your own home, from anywhere in Ontario. I provide a welcoming and comfortable environment so that you can safely think and say anything, without judgment or fear. We can set goals big or small, and explore the best way for you to work towards achieving those goals, that is uniquely tailored to where you are right now.
We will discuss together what anxiety does to your body and mind so that it’s easier to believe that it’s not your fault, and that it can get better. I can help you navigate challenging thoughts, develop strategies for working with powerful emotions, and check in with you along the way about what’s working and what’s not, so that when life gets stressful again (and it probably will!) you’ve got the skills and experience to work through it more effectively and efficiently.
