Online Anxiety Therapy
Your anxiety keeps you feeling stuck, paralyzed, and afraid. Let’s help you break free from that cycle and regain control of your life.
Did you know anxiety is one of the #1 mental health problems in the country?
If you look around, it’s not hard to see why.
Pressure to succeed in our culture has skyrocketed. Children, teens, and young adults all feel intense pressure to do well in school, at work, and in choosing a life path.
Worries about relationships, family, independence, and success impact young generations at an alarming rate.
Bad news articles and stories circulate constantly, making the world feel like a really scary place.
Social media dominates communication, making younger generations constantly compare their lives, bodies, and material possessions to others.
And these are just a few of the reasons anxiety is so prevalent.
Whatever the reasons for your anxiety, you’re not alone. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, nearly 1 in 3 Americans will experience an anxiety disorder at some point in their lives. And this statistic doesn’t even account for all the people who experience regular anxiety but don’t seek treatment for a specific anxiety disorder.
The truth is, anxiety doesn’t need to be classified as a “disorder” in order to feel debilitating. And it can show up in your life in a lot of different and sneaky ways.
Feel paralyzed and overwhelmed by all the pressures, worries, and “what-ifs” in your head
Have repetitive, looping thoughts and worries about the future
Feel a lot of pressure to succeed
Feel overwhelmed by sadness, irritability, anger, or some other negative emotion
Feel “on guard” and nervous a lot of the time, like you just can’t relax
Frequently feel shaky, antsy, fidgety, tense, out of breath, or like your heart is racing too fast
Feel like every decision and action you take is driven by fear or stress
Experience physical symptoms like digestive issues, headaches, or muscle tension
Have problems socializing or being in public
Have difficulty sleeping
Struggle to make or maintain friendships or relationships
Feel stuck and unable to move forward in life
Anxiety feels like an all-consuming, neverending battle. The fear, worries, and dread following you around can start to call all the shots.
You might feel like anxiety is running your life.
And it’s exhausting.

How Anxiety Therapy Helps
Our services are based in New York.
Anxiety Therapy for Kids
We offer anxiety therapy for kids.
Middle schoolers are dealing with a lot. They’re undergoing puberty changes, navigating the “in-between” stages of childhood and adolescence, and trying to figure out who they are in the world.
Not to mention all the pressure kids feel from society and schools to succeed.
It’s no wonder kids are so anxious.
They may have anxiety without even knowing it. And as a parent, it can be hard to tell what’s really going on in their heads.
Here are some signs your middle schooler might be experiencing anxiety:
They don’t fit in with their peers
Finding friends has been difficult for them
They struggle with some aspects of their identity
They’re stressed about grades or assignments
They feel pressure to get onto certain clubs, teams, or sports
They experience homesickness at summer or sleepaway camp
You’ve noticed a change in temperament, attitudes, or behavior
They exhibit signs of ADHD (Easily distracted, hyperactive, can’t seem to focus or pay attention, and being “spacey” are common signs in children)
They’re having behavioral issues
They get in trouble in school
When kids experience anxiety, they don’t understand what’s happening to them. They don’t have the coping tools or knowledge to identify what’s going on or deal with it.
Anxiety Therapy for Teens
We offer anxiety therapy for teens in high school.
Teens are under a lot of pressure to succeed and do well. They’re at the age when they’re testing boundaries, discovering their independence, and figuring out who they are. They’re worried about belonging and success, and their moods are all over the place.
They may ask you about seeing a therapist – but they also may have no idea that anxiety is even impacting them.
Here are some signs your teen might be anxious:
They’re stressed about college – the admissions process, getting good enough grades in high school, entrance exams, or choosing a school to attend
You’ve noticed physical, behavioral, or mood changes in them beyond the normal teenage changes
They seem exceptionally moody, angry, sad, irritable, or frustrated
They struggle to belong or fit in
You notice that social media impacts their behaviors or moods regularly
They might feel depressed, socially anxious, or lonely
Therapy can help teens develop the self-awareness, knowledge, skills, and tools they need to manage their anxiety.
