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 However, these protections likely have become outdated.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

Philip Starkman

Registered Psychotherapist, MSW, RSW
In my approach to helping clients overcome social anxiety, I craft a nurturing space where individuals can safely tackle their fears. Integrating Mindfulness, the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), Role-Playing, and specifically, Exposure Therapy, we collaboratively develop a path to confidence and ease in social situations. This comprehensive approach is designed to gently confront and desensitize clients to the social scenarios that trigger their anxiety, enhancing coping mechanisms and fostering resilience. By also focusing on building social skills and self-awareness, our aim is to empower individuals to navigate interpersonal interactions with greater comfort and less fear. My role is to guide and support you through this transformative process, offering the insights and techniques necessary for managing social anxiety. Together, we work towards achieving a more fulfilling and engaged life, helping you to step out into the world with confidence.

Psychologist, Clinical Psychologist
We all do our best to navigate a complex and often unpredictable social world. It usually isn't easy, and the uncertainty that accompanies any social interaction can drive some to feel afraid, even to the point of feeling paralyzed. Therapy should be a place where you can talk about all of your relationships.

There are many root causes of social anxiety. While some people are naturally introverted, anxiety is an unnecessary extension of that. Social anxiety can also become entrained through conscious or unconscious habits of thought and expectation based on past experiences. No matter what your personality type or prior traumas you don't have to suffer with anxiety in any social situation, whether at a party, giving a presentation at work, or interacting with a clerk at the store. Using hypnosis I will help you resolve any negative feels around previously triggering situations and help you discover inner strength and confidence that will allow you to function well in any social situation.

I provide compassionate support to individuals who struggle with overwhelming feelings of fear and discomfort in social situations. Do you find yourself avoiding social gatherings, feeling self-conscious, or experiencing intense physical symptoms like sweating, trembling, or rapid heartbeat when interacting with others? These are common symptoms of social anxiety that can significantly impact your quality of life. Just the other day, I was standing at Starbucks and was afraid to ask for a straw for my drink. Even after all the work I have done, sometimes my own social anxiety creeps back in. The difference is that now I have tools to get though these situations. Drawing from my expertise as a stress and anxiety coach, I offer practical strategies and personalized guidance to help you overcome social anxiety and regain confidence in social settings. Together, we'll explore the underlying beliefs and thought patterns that contribute to your anxiety, and we'll work on developing healthier coping mechanisms and self-esteem.
