Heal Anxiety with Ease

$99

with Kristé Sprague, Ph.D., York Adult Education

Calendar Jul 1, 2021

There is a difference between healthy apprehension and debilitating anxiety. Healthful worry helps you solve problems and keeps you safe, and then it eases quickly. Disordered anxiety takes control of your thoughts and impacts all areas of your life. It steals your joy, shrinks your world, causes deep sadness, holds you back, and can even lead to substance use disorder. 

There is hope. You don't have to live this way. Anxiety is one of the most treatable mental health conditions.

This course is the perfect solution for individuals unable to afford or attend counseling or anxiety relief coaching. And, this course is perfect to use alongside therapy.
