Learn CBT for Anxiety from Home!
Many of my clients are SUPER busy, so coming to the office to learn CBT techniques feels time consuming. To address this, I have created an on-demand anxiety management product that is JAM PACKED with my most popular techniques!

My online anxiety management toolbox deals with the three major types of anxiety that I’ve found are most common in driven, results-oriented people: Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and panic attacks. Why would these be common in successful people? I have found that a bit of GAD helps people to be conscientious, a little OCD actually helps people to be detail-oriented, and often times panic attacks are the result of hyper-focus on a particular goal. Many of my clients have actually RELIED on their anxiety to bring them a certain amount of success, and now they need to harness that anxiety so they can rise even higher!
