Social Anxiety

Social Anxiety

How would your life be different if you accomplish these goals?

  • Overcome fears about being judged
  • Let go of worries about blushing, trembling, or a shaky voice
  • Stop avoiding people or events due to negative expectations
  • Get over worrying about feeling embarrassed or humiliated
  • Give up anxiety about talking to strangers
  • Address low self-esteem and communication difficulties

Does This Sound Familiar?

Social anxiety or social phobia involves being afraid of social interactions. Such fear can interfere with your social goals, work objectives, or routine activities. Worrying about what others think of you can also lead to physiological effects including blushing, sweating, stuttering, or having a shaky voice. Social anxiety can also cause you to avoid situations with strangers or groups and prompt social isolation. Negative cognitions about others’ perceptions of you can undermine your self-esteem and ability to enjoy daily life.

Here Is How Counseling Can Help

Regardless of the cause of social anxiety, counseling can help you learn to feel more comfortable with other people. Many people feel shy at times around people they do not know well, but they often have strategies that help them cope. Counseling can help you become proficient with interpersonal communication so that you may feel more at ease with strangers, in groups, and when speaking in public.

I provide a combination of evidence-based cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and mindfulness counseling designed to help you overcome social anxiety. I have experience as a counselor since 2006, and my approach offers techniques that are easy to learn and can be applied right away. CBT can help you learn to engage in social activities in a comfortable way. CBT will also help you replace critical self-talk with more supportive thinking.

Mindfulness counseling can help you learn how to relax prior to, during, and after social interactions, so you will experience more enjoyment in interpersonal situations. In addition to CBT and mindfulness techniques, you can learn communication skills designed to help you in the short- and long-run to feel grounded, assertive, and socially competent.
