Hi, I'm Tracy Sloan, a Clinical Psychologist. Welcome to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Panic.
Most people with anxiety tell themselves negative stuff that increases anxiety and worry. For example, have you ever felt your heart racing? Did you think, "oh no! I'm having a heart attack. I'm going to die."? Ever felt dizzy? Did you think, "Oh no! I'm going to pass out."? What we're going to do is work on changing that negative stuff you tell yourself, to make it easier to do the things you want to do.
My 20 years of experience doing face-to-face therapy, and my research in the field of anxiety has led to these evidence-based techniques. You will gain tools and techniques to help you decrease your anxiety, at your pace, with a focus on your specific fear. We start with an educational component, learning terms to be used, and definitions. Next I will teach Cognitive Techniques to help you change that thinking that's getting in your way. Then we will work on confronting your fears. I know, that sounds super scary. BUT, we'll do it slowly, baby steps. You'll see. It's an amazing feeling to be able to do something you've been avoiding. Really!! Finally, I will give you some added tricks and tips, as well as keys to recovery and relapse prevention.
My goal is to help you grow, heal, and live your best life.
