For dealing with social anxiety, first of all, I help my clients to manage their physical symptoms of anxiety and then they are able to take control of their bodies, secondly we try to identify automatic negative thoughts and learn how to deal with them and challenge them. We learn how to accept ourselves, and stop worrying about other people's opinions.

When life feels painful and hard it can be very difficult to be around others who seem like they have everything under control. It can make us want to avoid situations that serve as reminders of all the ways life may feel like it is lacking. Sometimes it may feel as though you just don't fit in and you find yourself wondering why does it seem so easy for others. Therapy can provide a space to explore social interactions and relationships. Increase understanding of how patterns of behaviour and perceptions relate to how a relationship or social situation is experienced.

As a therapist, and someone who has experienced social anxiety myself, I know how much effort it can take to navigate it. During therapy, it can often be helpful to get to know the social anxiety to feel more in control of it. This can allow us to develop a unique toolkit, best suited to you, to move through the anxiety and live your most meaningful and authentic life. I am here to support you in creating and applying this toolkit. Connect with me today for a free consultation to begin your journey.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, MSW, RSW
I use CBT and DBT approaches to work with individuals dealing with social anxiety. I will work with you to identify and challenge unhelpful thinking patters that may be contributing to the anxiety you are experiencing. You don't have to struggle through anxiety by yourself. My approach can help you change anxious thoughts and manage difficult emotions.

People experience anxiety in different ways and for those with social anxiety the world can feel very uncomfortable or overwhelming at times. This can cause one to isolate and withdraw from others in an effort to avoid discomfort or distress. This in turn prevents us from learning how to navigate social situations and learn to make them feel more manageable. When working with a client with social anxiety I recognize that it can be challenging just to be interacting with a new person. As anxiety often comes from feeling a lack of control, it is a priority for me to promote an environment where my client feels safe and in control. We will explore the history of their anxiety, what makes it worse as well as triggers. We will then use CBT to challenge negative or limiting thoughts and reframe them as more empowering and reassuring thoughts. We will also develop grounding and coping strategies they can use when feeling anxious. If this sounds helpful to you, please book a free consultation where I can answer questions or address concerns.
