Starting therapy is tough, I just want to commend you on taking the first step.
Feeling a certain level of anxiety over big stressors or certain life events is totally normal. However, if you find that your fear or worry does not go away and, in fact, gets worse over time, you may be suffering from an anxiety disorder. Mild anxiety is vague and unsettling and often passes quickly, while severe anxiety can seriously affect your day-to-day life. If you are finding your anxiety unmanageable, can’t identify the cause of your anxious feelings or if you are suffering from physical symptoms (such as heart palpations, fatigue, sweaty hands, upset stomach, or insomnia), it may be time to get help. Reach out to one of TherapyDen’s anxiety specialists today.
My passion is working with transgender, nonbinary, and intersex people, and the people who love them, whether or not gender identity is a topic of exploration. My clients are likely to be involved in relationship models and communities not sanctioned by Those Who Judge, and they often have a strong drive toward creative expression in its many forms. Neurodivergent and Highly Sensitive people report feeling welcome, safe, and seen.
Feeling lost or overwhelmed? Juggling others' needs at the expense of your own? These struggles might stem from toxic relationships, past experiences, or emotional battles. I'm here to help you reshape your thoughts, cultivating a sense of security and inner resilience.
