Does this sound like you?

You’re constantly worried about a long list of “should’s.” You feel more successful at work than you do in your personal life. It feels harder to communicate your wants and needs in a relationship than it is to do a difficult project at work. You feel pressure to always do more, and if you don’t achieve your goals, you blame, shame, and guilt yourself.

My clients often feel stuck in their lives as they struggle with relationships and feeling confident in themselves and their decisions.

If this sounds like you, anxiety therapy can help.

Hi, I’m Danielle Wayne, a Boise therapist.

I work with anxious millennial-aged professionals because I’m a millennial myself. I know what it’s like to face our generation’s unique challenges, and it’s my mission to help people like you overcome their anxiety, so they can live anxiety-free, fulfilling lives.

Even though being a millennial has its challenges (I’m talking about you, anxiety), we’re also the generation that is normalizing mental health care. We recognize that it’s okay to not be okay, but also that no one should have to suffer alone.

That’s what I’m here for: to support you in your healing journey. Ideally, during our time together, I work myself out of a job. We’ll identify coping strategies for your daily life and address the deeper issues causing your anxiety so that you won’t need therapy anymore.

If you’re ready to start a new chapter of your life, contact me below for a complimentary consultation. We’ll get to know each other and see if we’re a good fit for anxiety therapy.

My therapeutic approach

As a fellow millennial, I recognize how difficult it can be to open up. When you constantly feel external pressure to be someone other than yourself, it’s hard to let your guard and just be you. However, it’s my job to validate you and your experiences.

During our sessions, I vow to create a space that allows you to be your most genuine self--and you can expect the same from me. Authenticity is my number one value.

This helps us create a strong rapport, which is an essential part of the therapy process. It also provides you with the opportunity to be truly vulnerable in a world that makes it hard to be yourself.

With that being said, I also recognize that people have unique experiences that can make it even more difficult to be and speak about themselves. That’s why I practice trauma-informed care. This means that I have been trained to be especially sensitive to the needs of people who have been through particularly challenging life events. I won’t judge you, blame you, or focus solely on problems. Instead, my approach is about healing from past experiences and celebrating your strengths.

Here's why I offer exclusively online therapy in Boise.

In my experience, online therapy is perfect for millennials’ busy schedules and anxiety about therapy. Instead of commuting to your appointment, you can simply open your laptop for our sessions and decompress in your home.

With online therapy, committing is easier because the process itself is easier. When you’re anxious, it can be hard to complete even the smallest tasks, but online therapy reduces overwhelm around therapy.

If online anxiety therapy sounds like it may be a good fit, schedule a consultation with me below.

Danielle has been exactly what I needed when I sought counseling. Attentive, understanding and prompt. Her schedule has been very flexible and allowed me to choose times that work best for me. I continue to recommend her services to those i know in need.

Danielle has been wonderful to work with and I feel I have gained a lot from our time together. She's helped me initiate changes in my life that I was struggling to make on my own and given me helpful tools in the process. She's well-versed in her field and offers an empathetic, yet practical perspective that allow you to understand yourself a little better.

Danielle has been very helpful in her sessions with me. I feel very safe confiding in her. She has helped me think through issues and helped me develop positive coping strategies. I highly recommend her as a counselor.

Here's how it works.

FAQs
Here are some common questions I get about anxiety therapy.
What is anxiety therapy like?

Anxiety therapy looks different depending on the type of therapy, but very generally, you will discuss what’s bothering you.

During sessions, your anxiety therapist guides you through your thought processes and emotions as they identify triggers and suggest coping strategies.

Sessions are typically 45-60 minutes and can be attended weekly or twice per month.

How does therapy help with anxiety?

Therapy is one of the most effective treatments for anxiety. When we’re anxious, we get in our heads. We think about our daily interactions, responsibilities, and relationships so much that it’s unhealthy. With anxiety therapy, you can get all of those thoughts out of your head and into the open as you discuss them with a trained professional.

During anxiety therapy, you learn what’s causing your anxiety and what you can do to fix it. By analyzing your thought patterns and triggers, you can understand yourself better, live a fulfilling life, and say goodbye to your anxiety for good.

How long does anxiety therapy take?

How long anxiety therapy takes varies from person to person. For some people, a couple of months is all it takes. For others, therapy is a lifelong practice they do to feel well.

Essentially, as long as you are benefiting from anxiety therapy, you should continue.

Can anxiety be cured with therapy?

Anxiety can be potentially be cured with therapy.

Although that’s not a guarantee, I have seen my clients live healthy, happy, and anxiety-free lives after therapy. For you to accomplish this, it’s essential to think of therapy as a healing process rather than solely a stress management exercise.

My clients and I discuss the surface-level stressors, of course: work, toxic relationships, home life… but more importantly, we address why these things are deteriorating or causing stress in the first place.

Why do you have toxic friendships? Why does your job stress you out or leave you feeling unsatisfied? Why are you a perfectionist to the point where it’s problematic?

By digging deep, we can address these problems at the root to ensure lasting change.

How do I pick an anxiety therapist in Boise?

Success in therapy is all about the relationship with your therapist.Consider the following things when consulting with a Boise therapist:

→ Do I feel safe? Therapy is often the one place where we aren’t judged in our lives. You should feel safe to speak freely with your therapist.
→ Do I feel understood? Your therapist should understand you and your problems. Although you’ll have to explain your life and how you think, you should feel like your therapist “gets” you.
→ Do we get along? You should enjoy spending time with your therapist. Chemistry is important.

How much does anxiety therapy cost?

How much anxiety therapy costs depends on the therapist. Therapy is a personal decision, and part of that decision is deciding how much it means to you.

Consider this: do you want a bargain on your therapist? Is your mental health something you’re willing to compromise on due to price?

Therapy is an investment, and this investment’s effects can last for the rest of your life.

When choosing a therapist, if possible, don’t let price be the #1 factor in your decision. Instead, consider the therapist’s qualifications, specialty, and experience along with your relationship with them.
