Katrina has a family history of anxiety disorders, so when she started getting panic attacks, she recognized that she needed help. A failing marriage and career change triggered feelings of inadequacies and panic attacks. Katrina reached out for both individual and couples therapy to help get her life on track. By eliminating the panic attacks and reducing her overall anxiety, Katrina could make sound decisions about her career and marriage. She decided that she was strong enough to get out of the abusive relationship and is a much happier, calmer person today. Without counseling things may have turned out very differently for Katrina.
