Anxiety Therapy in Houston
Hi, I'm Marian, and I'm an Anxiety Therapist in Houston. When you live with anxiety, any moment can become one that creates a slow-rising panic within you. Life is normal one second and the next, you feel your chest tighten and your heart begin to race. You may begin to hyper focus on future events and find yourself getting lost in "what-ifs." I understand, and I'm here to help.
I help highly motivated professionals like you learn to identify, challenge, and change unhelpful thinking patterns so that you can start feeling like yourself again.
If you're ready to learn a new way of dealing with your anxiety, schedule a complementary consultation call with me today.
My Approach to Anxiety Therapy
Anxiety can feel debilitating especially when you find yourself getting lost in the "shoulds" of the past and the "what-ifs" of the future. Whether it's over something big or small, anxiety can stop us from living a normal life. Just like you, my clients come to therapy because they feel overwhelmed and are exhausted with their inability to slow down. Luckily, there are many powerful tools and techniques you can use to manage your anxiety effectively.
I can assist you in uncovering the underlying causes of your anxiety, help you look at situations in a new less frightening way, and help you develop strategies to tackle worries head on. My approach to therapy incorporates my sense of humor, is supportive, directive, personalized, and collaborative.
In sessions, I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy which is also known as CBT. This is an evidenced based intervention that has been clinically proven to help reduce anxiety. CBT looks at the connection that exists between our feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. CBT provides an educational approach to helping you learn about your thoughts, the situations that create them, and your responses. I then teach you how to change your thoughts and reactions. I do give homework but don't worry it is often another opportunity to connect to the topic of our session. Some homework assignments can include listening to a podcast episode on a specific anxiety tool, reading an article on relaxation strategies, practicing a relaxation technique I may have modeled in the session, or completing a thought log (a tool to help you track your thoughts).
I also assist clients in problem solving ( a fancy way of brainstorming options and making a plan of action). I understand that my clients are driven, hardworking, and motivated and are fueled by results. I use a goals-based approach to help us keep track of progress.
