The answer is simple. I had a loved one, a very close dear friend, who suffers from anxiety. We grew up together and I watched this friend go through our teenage years confused about what they were feeling. Dealt with individuals telling them to just “get over it” or “you worry too much.” The Anxiety was real, but we as their support system didn’t really understand what they were dealing with.
By the time we realized the severity of the situation, it was overwhelming to see the cost and time commitment for different treatment options. As friends and family we pulled together to get them the help that they needed, but it was exhausting, financially stressful, and time consuming. It then became my personal mission to make sure that people who suffer from mental health illnesses, like anxiety, can get more affordable treatment and easier access to the resources they need.
I have since completed a Bachelors and Masters degree in psychology and the study of the brain through neuroscience. With this education and the partnership with other licensed therapists we created the Anxiety Healing Program. Our mission is to get treatment into more homes, helping more individuals get help earlier and without financial stress so there can be more healing and less hurting.
I plead with you if you or a loved one is suffering from Anxiety, take action now to bring healing and freedom into your life. Know that if you have anxiety, there is hope, there is help and there is healing.
