Oakland, California therapist: Jeffrey Gianelli, licensed clinical social worker
Social Anxiety

Jeffrey Gianelli

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, LCSW
Social Anxiety is one of the toughest things to struggle with because it hits us right where things matter most- our connections with others. It can feel like an oppressive force that won't allow you to be who you are or to experience the connections with others that you would like. However, oftentimes it comes from a place of hurt and trauma, or even just the negative things we learned to tell ourselves based on growing up in a society where we are constantly comparing ourselves to others. But, we can learn to get in touch with the wounded and hurt parts or ourselves, the self critical and judgmental parts, and help them to feel more safe and at ease. Social Anxiety does not have to rule your life! There are some many different tools and skills. You can learn to work with it instead of against yourself.

Social Anxiety

John Jakubowski

Marriage and Family Therapist, AMFT, APCC
Social anxiety, in my opinion, is a completely normal reaction to a world that has become increasingly hard to navigate, interpret and understand. The last few years have been devastating for people trying to function, yet alone trying to make sense of the world around them. I work with clients to reframe their experience into an affirming, compassionate narrative that helps them see the beauty in both themselves and their environment.

Often a strong inner critic and judging mind contribute to social anxiety- creating a different relationship with this critic will free you up to enjoy yourself and others much more.

Social Anxiety

Vanessa Wolter Holistic Therapy

Marriage and Family Therapist, MA, LMFT
I have extensive experience working with social anxiety and also run a social anxiety therapy group called Social Anxiety, Shyness and Highly Sensitive Person Group. Social anxiety is often experienced as intense self-consciousness and a fear of being negatively judged by others and can get in the way of relationships and living the life we want. I help clients get to the root of their social anxiety. Understanding where it came from gives us clues as to what the anxiety is trying to protect or prevent. Often there are social traumas that created an intense vigilance and harsh inner critic as protectors. However, these protections likely have become outdated. With empathy I help clients heal and transform these painful moments to create a more compassionate and empowered self narrative so that they can safe again to connect with the world and people around them.

Social Anxiety

Marriage and Family Therapist, LMFT
I hope you can take a moment to celebrate your success in reaching out to start a new relationship. In working with social anxiety, we'll consider the exceptions in your life—the times when you have connected with strangers, when you’ve entered into a new social environment, when you’ve stayed longer at a social event. We’ll bring curiosity to what made those experiences exceptional for you. We’ll then bring those differences, as well as, newly learned skills into corrective experiences in the therapy room and the least risky environments for you outside of therapy. We will likely use EMDR and somatic therapy approaches to work through the engrained difficult messages and bodily experiences of social anxiety from your past to increase your confidence in your capacity for present and future social connections.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, LCSW
It feels like we all have anxiety at this point, right? Especially after COVID - so let's get down to it. I have years of experience working with teens, young and middle-aged adults in overcoming the symptoms of social anxiety - whether that is due to interacting in specific situations, more general public environments, or anything in between. Assisting my clients with building insight and understanding into your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors is an essential part of overcoming social anxiety, and I provide evidence-based practice tools that you can use outside of therapy as well. I am passionate about providing a safe and welcoming space where you can be open about your worries so we can work through them together.
