About

Many people experience the “normal” jitters when giving a presentation, going on a first date, or sending kids off to school for the first time. But what happens when anxiety interferes with your day-to-day functioning? When it starts to inhibit you from doing the things you are passionate about, from spending time with your children or being successful at your job? Anxiety has the potential to be disruptive and frustrating, hampering your quality of life and distracting you from the moments of which life is made.

Did you know that the National Alliance on Mental Illness identifies anxiety as the leading cause of mental illness in the United States? A surprising number of Americans—40 million to be exact—have some form of anxiety disorder. The good news is you’re not alone! Through a variety of counseling approaches, the specialists at Lifeologie can help you develop coping skills and tactics to address your anxiety and foster a sense of hope and well-being.

Signs and Symptoms

  • feeling restless
  • fatigue
  • physical twitches
  • increased heartrate
  • shallow, rapid breathing
  • difficulty sleeping
  • change in appetite

How does Lifeologie help?

Discuss your concerns with our intake specialists.

When you reach out to a Lifeologie, you’ll be connected with one of our Intake Specialists. In a “call center?” No way. Our specialists are each located in their local Lifeologie office and know the counselors well. Their entire job is to learn about you and what you’re looking for and to match you with the counselor who will be the very best fit for your needs and preferences.

Find a counselor that is passionate about helping you reach your mental health goals.

Our counselors are literally the cream of the crop. We get hundreds of applications every year to intern and work at our offices. Lifeologists are counselors, life coaches and overall wellness advocates who are experts and specialists in their craft. At the intern level, they have set themselves apart as incredible learners and collaborators, chasing after the highest-level trainings in the field. From EMDR to nutrition coaching to brain spotting and addiction specialists, we have you covered. Once you enter a Lifeologie office, you’ll find that we’ve carefully curated the environment to feel modern, comfortable and inviting. Counseling at Lifeologie is not your typical counseling experience – in any way.

Receive continuous support and guidance as you go on your mental health journey.

Your counselor at Lifeologie will meet you wherever you are, whether you’re just starting in counseling for the first time ever… or returning to a life-long counseling journey after a brief break. Your Lifeologist will partner with you to meet your goals. As you learn and grow, we can help you focus on overall wellness through mindfulness practices such as Psychotherapeutic Yoga or mindful eating. Wherever you are, we can come alongside and help you move forward!
