Thank You, Stacey Ellertson, From The Bottom Of My Heart

I have suffered off and on with anxiety for most of my life. I did lots of therapy, read all the books, tried different remedies but never learned how to manage my thoughts and feelings effectively. This last bout of anxiety I experienced was by far the worst. I was a mess.

I have to honestly say that that I was truly blessed the day I found; and I am sure it was “Divine Intervention” that brought Stacey Ellertson into my life. He was the light of hope at a very dark time.

My experience working with Stacey has been nothing short of extraordinary. He has a way of explaining what goes on physiologically in an anxious person’s body that helped me to better understand how my thoughts and reactions to my anxious feelings and sensations were feeding my fear. He listens and hears what you are saying. He has a way of tactfully calling you on your “stuff”. His demeanor is calming and compassionate.

I really looked forward to our sessions and although I miss talking to him, he is always with me each day as I apply what he has taught me.

What I know for sure is that recovery from anxiety is an ongoing process. Applying what you learn doesn’t stop just because you feel better.

I thank Jim Folk for creating the website that is such a comprehensive and valuable resource for all anxiety sufferers. And, most importantly, I thank you, Stacey, from the bottom of my heart for supporting me and facilitating my growth to become more whole. Thank you!

The combination of good self-help information and working with an experienced anxiety disorder therapist, coach, or counselor is the most effective way to address anxiety and its many symptoms. Until the core causes of anxiety are addressed - we call these core causes the underlying factors of anxiety - a struggle with anxiety unwellness can return again and again. Dealing with the underlying factors of anxiety is the best way to address problematic anxiety.
