What we're about

SOCIAL ANXIETY INSIDE OUT WEST MICHIGAN

Trading a life on hold for limitless possibility.

Our members live bravely knowing intimately the cost that mood and stress disorders have on a life, a family, and a career, constantly limiting joy and ease. Social Anxiety Inside Out is West Michigan’s resource for shifting power out of social anxiety’s hands and into yours.

Your organizers, Jenna and Debbie, are personally familiar with the restrictions that anxiety, irritability, constant fear, and panic attacks inflict on a life. Whether you are a person living with social anxiety or a person supporting a loved one living with social anxiety, this group has something for you.

We created this group as a safe space, not only to talk about the tough stuff, but also to learn and explore. A safe space to share your stories, your struggles, and your exploration. A safe space to implement a break-up from the symptoms and limitations. YES, we said break-up.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

Each month, we will bust a myth that is holding you or your loved one from living the life you are meant to live. We’ll pull back the curtain and shine a spotlight on the real reasons you are stuck in irritability, brain fog, repetitive thoughts, and fear, giving you control. We won’t stop there. Each month we’ll also share steps for shedding the anxiety, feeling better in your body. We celebrate successes and support the challenges; all is valuable in building your possibility toolbox.

The relevant science—that we employ personally—teaches that no one has to live with debilitating social anxiety. Period. You have choices. If your doctor is not telling you this and if you are not getting better with your current treatment choice, then you owe it to yourself or your loved one to check out this group.

So, are you ready to shift power away from social anxiety? To live life on your terms? To meet new possibilities, free of fear? Then this group is for you. Join. Let’s gather, talk, learn, share resources, have some fun, and kick social anxiety’s butt!

Physical Imbalances that Masquerade as Psychiatric Pretenders Pt Two

I have secured a free great meeting place in lovely downtown Holland on 8th street, above the store Lokers', on the second floor. 4TH TUESDAYS March 26 April 23 May 28 So excited to launch a three month workshop series in this space. At each workshop we will bust a myth that explains why so many people are stuck in a state of pain and limits; expose and explain what the most successful, holistic, easy options are for kicking social anxiety to the curb; enjoy open discussion; make new friends. WORKSHOP ONE: Take a Closer Look. Our bodies don't make mistakes. They work hard to establish equilibrium but react to imbalance. The reaction has a name - Symptoms. Symptoms are signals from our body - a sign of imbalance, distress; an outcry for help, support. Give the body what it craves, remove what hurts it and finally, our bodies know & enjoy beautiful balance. It's really that simple. At this workshop we explore how to listen, watch, and dial into the language of an anxious body to identify and understand its clues. Using a whole-body lens and physiological symptom checker it becomes possible to identify the root of the disturbance. Armed with this information you have tools and options to address it. RAISING PHYSIOLOGICAL AWARENESS is a key foundation to driving social anxiety to the back seat and the primary focus of this series of three. Please RSVP. Coffee, Tea, Water available. Free Parking on 8th Street. Free public parking also on 7th Street - behind Lokers' Shoes. Take stairs to second floor. Our Meetup is above Lokers on the second floor - Stairs located near back door (off 7th street). A greeter will be a the 7th and 8th street doors to welcome and direct you. Feel free to bring a friend. Feel free to text me at[masked] for more detail.
