How I Work

One size does not fit all when it comes to treatment for anxiety and panic. 
So I customize an approach and treatment plan designed for your specific situation.

Before our first appointment, I’ll send you some paperwork to fill out and bring with you so we can maximize our time together in our first session.  This gives me a holistic view of who you are, what problems you’re experiencing, and your goals for feeling better.

Are you Goal Oriented?

Achieve your goals with Di Philippi, Holistic Anxiety Therapist, Milwaukee, Brookfield
Me too!  I want you to get results that will really make a difference in your life!  So we start by setting goals for your specific situation, designed to bring you more peace, calm, and freedom from anxiety and panic.

If you didn’t have all that anxiety or worry, what would be different in your life?

I want you to be able integrate what we’re working on in our sessions and apply it to your everyday life so you can see real results. So you’ll often have “homework” to do in between sessions to help you get results faster.

Long Term RESULTS for Anxiety and Panic

The single most powerful thing you can do to reduce anxiety is to change your perspective and train your brain to start assessing situations differently.  When you can look at problems, worries or fears in a different way, you can reduce feelings of anxiety.  Different thoughts lead to different feelings.

But if you could do that on your own, you probably would have done it already.

This is where my Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) comes in. Based on dozens of scientific studies, CBT is probably the most effective treatment for anxiety. 60-80% of people experience a significant reduction in anxiety.  And CBT has longer-lasting results than medication because it gets to the root cause of the problem.

Changing those habits of anxiety thinking and “rewiring” the mind is the heart of our work together. It is not necessarily a quick fix – but a lasting one.

You can get immediate relief for panic, anxiety and worry with very practical, holistic techniques.  Not all tools work for all people, so I’ll help you build a custom toolkit that works for YOU.

You’re always welcome to question me or my treatment methods so you can understand what we’re doing and why. I want it to feel right to you. We will experiment with different techniques until we find the right fit.
