Many of my clients beat themselves up after challenging days, have increased anxiety, and a lingering sense of self-criticism over minor mistakes. They constantly replay alternative scenarios which end up becoming an incessant loop, persisting for days or even weeks. Frustration grows as they struggle to shake off this self-critical mindset, fostering thoughts of inadequacy and impostor syndrome. Worries about disappointing others both professionally and personally contributes to exhaustion daily. Despite attempts by friends and family to offer support, the feeling of being truly understood remains elusive, deepening the overall sense of fatigue. If you aspire to regain a sense of engagement in your life, pursue excellence in your career and personal life, experience love and support, and better manage stress and anxiety, these goals can be well within reach. I collaborate with my clients in helping understand the driving forces behind their pursuit of achievement and instilling hope in the possibility of change. Together, we craft solutions that sustain high performance while transforming the self-critical inner dialogue into one of support. I assist my clients learn a set of tools designed to temper self-criticism and manage anxiety, paving the way to a more calmer and focused life. If maintaining peak performance while navigating heightened anxiety and silencing that inner critic resonate with you, reach out for a complementary 15 minute session. Prior to transitioning into private practice, I spent over a decade as a tenured professor. Throughout this time, my research delved into perfectionism, anxiety, and stress management. I am enthusiastic about helping clients learn the knowledge and insights gained from this experience to guide you toward a more fulfilling, balanced life.

Philip Gnilka Practice Description
I utilize empirically validated approaches to treating anxiety disorders such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). While I cannot guarantee individual results, research has demonstrated many clients feel significant relief after 7-10 sessions. I also use an evidenced-based approach that uses real-time input during counseling sessions called Feedback Informed Treatment (FIT). Research has consistently shown that clients and counselors who use FIT are 2.5 times more likely to benefit from counseling. Taking the plunge to schedule that first session can be scary. We have the experience, expertise, and knowledge to help you find the best match in a counselor that can best help you. How fulfilling would your life be if you could conquer anxiety and stress again? You are worth giving it a try. You don’t have to suffer.
