Anxiety Reduction Group

Do you spend a lot of time worrying about things you can’t control? Or do you spend too much time thinking negatively or feeling stuck when you could be taking action? If anxiety is interfering with your quality of life, it may benefit you to join an Anxiety Reduction Group.

Anita Dean, LPC, will be facilitating this group on Tuesday evenings, every 2 weeks, from 5:15 to 6:45 pm. Each group session will include an educational component about how to understand, reduce and manage personal anxiety. You will have the opportunity to put what you learn into practice during group time, guided by the group facilitator. You will also be provided with tools to take home and use between sessions. As group members become more comfortable with one another, time will be set aside for “checking in,” receiving support, and benefiting from the experience of others. You may also just listen if you choose.

The group is designed to run for 8 sessions, after which members may choose to continue, or complete their time in group. The facilitator will use evidence-based practices and techniques including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Action and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Studies have shown that these are effective in treating Mood Disorders, including anxiety and depression. This group is suitable for those with mild to moderate anxiety.

The group facilitator, Anita Dean, LPC, has almost 30 years of clinical counseling experience and has worked in a wide variety of settings. Her specialties include, but are not limited to, depression and anxiety.

ith the best counselor for my needs. I have to admit that I was skeptical at first, but I was pleasantly surprised when I met Anita Dean. She is very knowledgeable, professional, and genuinely cares about others. I have observed that she doesn't create cookie cutter plans. Instead, she creates a plan specific to the needs of her her clients. My husband and I lost our sweet family pet of over 15 1/2 years and it also caused the loss of a child to resurface. Anita, has handled my situation with care and assisted me as I walked through the grief process. I am so grateful.
