I’m dubious about the term “social anxiety.” I don’t doubt for a second how paralyzing or distressing it is to be anxious in social situations, but diagnosing someone with social anxiety sometimes feels like an excuse for a quick fix: “Here’s a prescription!” That’s not my approach (although I get it if that’s where you are now). Whether you’ve been diagnosed or not doesn’t matter to me. What matters is that you want to be more confident and comfortable around people. Because I can help you with that. The tools I use – energy psychology, hypnosis and NLP (neurolinguistic programming), nutritional guidance, and voice dialogue (or “parts work”) – all have a part. As can figuring out if “social anxiety” is part of a bigger problem, such as chronic anxiety or perfectionism or a general distrust of people, or a seemingly unrelated bad experience that subconsciously affects you in social situations. Human beings are social animals. Social connection is so important that a lack of it is a reliable predictor of early death. And technology now gives us so many ways to “connect” that it’s easy to stop connecting in meaningful ways. If you’re tired of not being able to be yourself (or the person you want to be) in social situations, there’s a good chance I can help. Please get in touch.

Social Anxiety

Psychologist, Ph.D.
True social anxiety is debilitating, overwhelming, and draining. It is also painful for those who want to have meaningful relationships, but as of yet, can't cope with the ongoing effort entailed to make it happen. Therapy will examine your specific trigger thoughts and situations, problematic recurring patterns, and identify reasonable goals for you to improve upon your comfort level and relationships.
