Therapy for Social Anxiety Disorder in Westminster, Colorado

Social Anxiety Disorder Counseling – Therapists and Coaches in Westminster

Everyone has been there, don’t try and run away from it or even fix it. Embrace it, give it a kiss on the cheek. Say goodbye, know that it was there, and know that it is now gone.

I mean, really there is no point in trying to escape your zone, right? You are comfortable. That is great, be comfortable. You are safe. That is wonderful, stay safe. You think it is better if you keep to yourself all the time. Keep thinking that. You’re wrong, but keep thinking that and see where it takes you. Imagine what kind of dynamic you add to a group setting (you may think it isn’t much, but your friends and family thinks it’s great and they love it). Removing yourself removes an entire personality from the realm of possibilities.

We can all admit we need our “me” time. In this instance, we are not talking about the time you need to have alone in order to think and clear your thoughts. We are talking about a habitual effort to avoid interaction with others. An effort that goes to great lengths to get out of certain social situations. An effort that is premeditated to ensure solitude.

Social anxiety might be another term we have desensitized (see: your sister who calls herself “OCD” because she organized her dresser).

Even though social anxiety is basically a household term, millions in the United States alone have been diagnosed with social anxiety or social phobia. With this disorder, there are some very real and very hard situations to get through when interacting with someone with social phobia. Especially if they are trying to get through a situation that is actively triggering it.

It’s hard to break out of your shell when you are constantly reinforcing it with layers upon layers of steel.

The shell being your phobia and the layers of steel being the excuses not to be social with others. The stockpiles of steel are endless until your mind stops creating them.

Make an appointment with Thriveworks, let’s get the crowbars and jackhammers to break down the barriers you put up daily. Let’s learn to be open and learn how openness makes us happier and easier to approach. But most importantly you will learn how to hug the rut, squeeze it into oblivion, and say goodbye.

Let’s be #rutsquishers. Call us today at 303-214-2106. Many insurance plans accepted

Thriveworks Counseling Westminster

This saved my life

★★★★★
Chris at Thrive Works saved my life. I started at the beginning of the pandemic, by phone, and I didn’t think therapy by phone would have the impact that it did. But I tried for my kids, my marriage, and myself. I can’t say enough good things about Chris. Thank you for everything, and for literally saving my life. I wouldn’t be alive without his counsel.

Jakob Rosenthal is amazing

★★★★★
Jakob Rosenthal is the best therapist I've ever encountered! He gets to the bottom line quickly and kindly, and helps me to understand as well as helps me to have healthy coping mechanisms. I am a better person for having seen him.

Fantastic

★★★★★
Initially I saw Jacob for my intake appointment and felt he was really great. I was placed with Kate Kelly and overall she is fabulous. She has helped me live to my full potential. She has helped me sort out my PTSD with childhood and adult trauma, as well as being a great resource for addiction counseling. She was also extremely helpful to point me in the right direction on how to deal with (or escape from) toxic family members. She was also a really great help to me during grief and loss of a loved one. I feel so much better than I did before going to Thriveworks. I'm in a great place now and will be back in the future. I can't thank you enough.

Outstanding Therapist

★★★★★
Jacob has helped me much more than any therapist I've ever seen. His skill, insight, and kindness are truly outstanding. Jacob has helped me change my life so that my depression is no longer in charge. His approach is very direct - which may not be for everyone but was perfect for me - but he always acts and speaks with sincere compassion. Thank you, Jacob, you have helped heal me at a level I thought was impossible. Also, Jennifer has always been super wonderful and responsive withheduling and questions. She goes above and beyond to be helpful and kind. Thanks Jennifer! You're awesome.

Peace and Comfort

★★★★★
The more I go to Counseling, the more I recognize the peace and comfort available there. The waiting area (I have always been seen punctually) has warm, comfortable decor and a great offering of beverages. The choice of beverages is just one expression of the warmth and hospitality they offer. I actually look forward to going there! The office is conveniently located and easy to find. I've always enjoyed front row parking, thanks to the abundance of designated visitor's parking. The office is on the first floor just off the lobby. Several counselors have greeted me warmly, even when they know I'm not there to see them. I highly recommend Thriveworks. It's obvious that they are in the counseling profession for the right reasons.

This counseling office is a breath of fresh air. Jacob has brought life back into my marriage. We had some deep issues, but I never felt judged and everyone is very kind. For the first time in a long time I feel like my relationship with my husband is on the right track. Thank You Thriveworks.

question

★☆☆☆☆
This is Eddie Rodriquez, I am a co-parent to a 16 week old baby girl. Mom is concerned that 50/50 custody is not good for the baby and we would like to get a professional opinion. Is this something you would be able to help with?
