Heal the heartache. How healing attachment wounds offers anxiety relief.

Have you been struggling with anxiety that has no “apparent” cause?

I understand how hard it is to venture out and seek someone who you will open up to, and allow them in to help you with your innermost worries, hopes, fears and wishes. At the same time, I commend you for beginning this search as it takes one step to begin making the change you seek; and research proves that good therapy helps people committed to change.
