Social Anxiety Help
Roxane Keller, LGPC; Clinical Associate
I offer an empathic, nonjudgmental, safe space within which to process presenting difficulties and learn concrete skills that help clients make significant progress toward their personal goals. Using an integrative and individualized approach, evidence-based practices guide how we work together to tackle the issues you want to work on.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), which examines how our thoughts contribute to our emotional state and our actions, is consistently shown to have the highest treatment success rate for a wide variety of mental health difficulties. In therapy, we explore the dynamic interplay of thoughts, feelings, and behavior to understand how feedback loops perpetuate maladaptive cycles that make us miserable. We collaboratively identify specific goals to work on to disrupt these patterns and we pursue them in a systematic, progressive manner.
As we confront what’s troubling you, we put the gears into motion to effect real change. I utilize varying CBT strategies, including dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), to help clients learn skills to challenge unhelpful thought processes and practice alternative behavioral responses. An important piece of this is mindfulness practice, which helps individuals practice anchoring themselves and returning to the present moment rather than getting swept away by their anxiety.
I obtained a Master of Arts degree in Psychology in 2013 and a Master of Science in Mental Health Counseling in 2020. I have experience in outpatient and community-based settings with a wide variety of populations and difficulties.
My graduate clinical internship was completed in an outpatient substance abuse clinic. I also have several years of experience providing individual, group, and family therapy to a diverse client population in Miami, FL, as well as urban areas of West Africa. Originally from Switzerland, I am fluent in 6 languages and can offer you culturally sensitive counseling in French, Spanish, or German if that is more comfortable for you.
In the context of a warm, supportive relationship, I have used the cognitive-behavioral to treat social anxiety, generalized anxiety, insomnia, depression, trauma, substance abuse, eating disorders, personality disorders, and more. I have had training in trauma-focused CBT and CBT for social anxiety in adolescents and adults. I am a member of the American Counseling Association and the Psi Chi International Honor Society in Psychology. My pronouns are she/her/hers.
Please reach out if you feel you need help. The most important endeavors we undertake in life are rarely easy but always worth it.
