What we’re about
This complimentary, confidential, private Meetup group has been running since 2009 and is back in-person as of January 2022. This is an excellent opportunity to meet new people that you can openly share your anxiety challenges with or just listen and know you are not alone.
It's a judgement free, no pressure, structured environment. See group members' reviews of this group over the years.
When you request to join - feel free to use your initials or first name only to ensure confidentiality.
If you prefer not to speak at all, no problem, just come and observe. Please don't let the fear that you will have to speak hold you back from attending. Usually only half of those who RSVP actually attend.
Check out the free resources on my website including life-changing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) based worksheets.

If you experience chronic anxiety when it comes to social and speaking anxiety, we will learn how to see outside of the tunnel vision of fear.
You'll learn how to:
- Reframe automatic negative anxiety thoughts
- Create a gradual hierarchy to overcome this fear - even during Covid
- Simple statements to use that will change your perspective
I’ve been researching this specific type of anxiety for over 20 years in my personal and professional life. I’ve worked directly with thousands of people with social anxiety and/or public speaking fear over the past 16 years.
Everyone has different types of social anxiety (generalized, performance only, or both) and it affects their daily lives in multiple ways, even if they’re masking it well to their loved ones and/or the outside world.
I’ve learned what helps and hinders individuals within a variety of circumstances.
Most importantly, I have the passion, dedication, and motivation to guide you with this challenge.
I look forward to meeting you soon!
