Can You Recommend A Good Anxiety Disorder Therapist In My Area?

Complete Question

I’d like to work with one of your therapists because of their personal experiences with anxiety. I think this is a big advantage. But I noticed that none of them live in my area. Do you have any recommendations?


Currently, we don’t have any recommended anxiety disorder therapists in your area. If you have difficulty finding a good anxiety disorder therapist in your area, you might consider working virtually with one of our recommended therapists.

And you are correct. There is an advantage to working with someone who had to recover from anxiety disorder. Someone who has been on both sides of anxiety disorder as a sufferer and has successfully overcome it. A person who knows what it feels like and the many nuances of recovery.

To ensure everyone can work with a good anxiety disorder therapist no matter where they live, our therapists work with people from around the world via phone or Internet-based phone (such as using your computer as a phone or video call, such as with Skype or Zoom). We’ve found that this type of counseling works very well.

Recent research has found that teletherapy (therapy by telephone or video chat) is just as effective, if not more so, as face-to-face counseling. For example:

"Obtaining therapy via teleconference is just as effective as face-to-face sessions, according to a new research by Stephane Guay, a psychiatry professor at the Universite de Montreal." - Medical News Today, March 24, 2010.

"Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) via the internet is just as effective in treating panic disorder (recurring panic attacks) as traditional group-based CBT. Internet-based CBT is also more cost-effective than group therapy," says Jan Bergström, psychologist and doctoral student at the Center for Psychiatry Research. - ScienceDaily, April 15, 2010.

This has been our experience as well.

The vast majority of our clients prefer meeting by telephone or other computer-based technology over face-to-face (even those who were meeting face-to-face) because they find it more relaxed, convenient, and confidential.

You might consider trying it and see how you like it. Since there is no long-term commitment, you can stop at any time. We have many clients in your area.

We know that finding a good anxiety disorder therapist is difficult because although many therapists claim to be able to help with anxiety disorder, few are proficient. That's why we've done that work for you.

We carefully chose our recommended therapists because of their personal experiences with anxiety disorder; their knowledge, training, and expertise; and because they really have a heart for helping people.

We find that this combination makes a big difference. We’ve worked hard to make sure that our recommended therapists are the "best of the best."

If you’d like help selecting the right therapist for you, you can find more information about that in the answer to the question, “I’m thinking of getting therapy from one of your recommended therapists. What is the best way to select the right therapist for me?

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 – which we call 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.
