THERAPY FOR ANXIETY IN DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES

Connor McClenahan, Psy.D

Licensed Clinical Psychologist, PSY30369

Anxiety is like a fire alarm. It’s a signal that something isn’t okay. While it’s normal to experience anxiety from time to time, problems come when we can’t turn the “fire alarm” off. It can feel controlling, suffocating, and unbearable.

When anxiety is too much to handle, we try to manage it the best we can:

  • We busy ourselves
  • Hide it behind a smile
  • Distract ourselves
  • Self-medicate

Often we don’t know what to do, so we try to avoid it. But here’s the thing: anxiety can’t be suppressed or avoided. Like a fire alarm, it’s trying to tell you something. What it needs is for us to slow down and listen in.

Our minds were built to heal in a safe relationship. That’s what psychotherapy is – a chance to develop a new way of managing your difficult emotions so that you are empowered to handle the obstacles before you.

That’s what I offer. I provide therapy for anxiety in Downtown Los Angeles. It’s my goal that by the end of our first session, you feel renewed clarity about the work ahead. In our sessions together, you’ll be learning new ways of regulating and experiencing your anxiety so you can feel control and calm when difficult situations arise. That’s the journey I’d like to help you with. Feel free to reach out today for a free consultation.
