Anxiety takes many forms.
Worries about the future, fear of embarrassment or public scrutiny, panic attacks, assumptions that others are judging you, health anxiety, perfectionism, wondering if you are good enough.
OCD appears different from person-to-person.
A fear of contamination, discomfort when something is out of order, distress that you might act on a harming or sexual thought, fear that you are a bad person or will be punished by a higher being, or are responsible for something bad happening.
What does yours look like?
If this sounds familiar, my practice may be a good fit for you! My name is Amanda Petrik-Gardner, and I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor. I work with individuals and families in Topeka, KS. I specialize in the treatment of anxiety disorders and the overwhelming feelings and symptoms that often surround anxiety. In addition, I have extensive training in the treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors, such as Trichotillomania and Excoriation. If you find yourself struggling with intrusive and unwanted thoughts and engaging in compulsions to alleviate that anxiety, you have found yourself in the right place. From the initial appointment, you will gain a sense of hope and relief that the anxiety you have been experiencing really can be managed! Let’s get you “unstuck” from the excessive, racing thoughts you have been facing and work towards a more peaceful lifestyle.
