Proven Anxiety Therapy, Holistic focus with CBT
Di Philippi, MA, LPC, Holistic Anxiety Counselor – Milwaukee area in Brookfield
I’m passionate about my holistic approach to anxiety treatment because I think anxiety medication can be over-prescribed for many people who could resolve the root cause of their panic and anxiety in other natural, healthier ways.
Too many people are told they will have anxiety forever so they must take medication for it forever. This is simply not true. When you get to the root cause of your anxiety, you can get over anxiety – you do not have to live with it for your whole life!
Holistic Anxiety Counseling featuring Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Holistic Anxiety Therapy for Anxiety and Panic means:
Holistic Anxiety Therapy: How It Works
1. Anxiety Therapy and Counseling Personalized to Achieve Your Goals
Are you Goal Oriented?
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.
2. Think Better and Feel Better with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Anxiety
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is always a part of the best anxiety treatment. It is a neuroscience-based, goal-oriented anxiety therapy that teaches your brain how to change the thoughts that are actually the root cause of anxiety. Learn how to literally rewire the way your brain thinks!
YES! Eliminating anxiety and panic attacks is possible! Thousands of research studies prove this and I see it in my practice every day.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is the most effective anxiety treatment for reducing and eliminating all anxiety disorders including: generalized anxiety disorder and worry, insomnia, panic attacks and panic disorder, social anxiety, fears and phobias, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
Research proven! Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is 65-90% effective.
PLUS! CBT has longer-lasting results than medication because it gets to the root cause of anxiety. Medication does nothing to prevent anxiety from returning so this is why people are told they will need medication forever.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for anxiety with an experienced anxiety counselor is a key part of Holistic Anxiety Therapy. The heart of our work together is changing your brain’s habit of anxiety thinking and “rewiring” your brain. It is not necessarily a quick fix (there is no such thing) – but it is a lasting one.
3. Holistic Tools and Techniques to Empower You for Life
The best anxiety treatment includes the right combination of holistic approaches to empower you to stop anxiety in its tracks. I have never seen just one technique be the answer for anxiety. What works best is integrating Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with the right holistic tools to help you meet your goals. Let me help you find the right combination for YOU!

Here’s a SAMPLE of some of the holistic anxiety therapy approaches that we may draw on (customized for your specific situation) to reduce and eliminate anxiety:
Frequently Asked Questions
I've tried lots of other things for my anxiety, so how do I know if this will work?
Many of my clients have been struggling with anxiety or panic for a long time. They feel like they’ve tried everything (like self-help books, meditation, breathing, mindfulness, prescription and over the counter medications, even seeing other therapists) and they are still struggling.
What I can tell you is that I see people get results every day with Holistic Anxiety Therapy. You must be open to change, and be willing to learn and practice new tools and techniques, as well as new ways of thinking.
(Of course, no health care practitioner can guarantee specific results.)
Together we’ll set goals and I’ll do everything I can to help you achieve those goals. (Read more about How I Work.) You are not in this alone.
My doctor said anxiety is due to a chemical imbalance and recommended medication. What are your thoughts?
I am not a physician and I don’t dispense medical advice. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor specializing in non-medication anxiety treatment.
What I know is that there are many natural, healthy ways to affect your chemical balance. There are also many holistic, healthy ways to calm your body, calm your mind, get better sleep, stop worrying, stop the spiral of anxiety thinking, and stop panic. The key is finding the right combination of tools & techniques that work for you.
Do you work with people who are taking anxiety medication?
Yes, I work with many people who are currently taking anxiety medication but would like to reduce or eliminate it. I see medication as one possible tool for managing anxiety and panic.
I generally think it makes more sense to resolve the root cause of the anxiety instead of just focusing on the symptoms. So for those who wish to avoid drugs, there are many other holistic tools and options that work to get at the root cause of the problem to prevent anxiety in the future. (Read more about How I Work.)
If you are taking prescription medication, it is important that you continue to take it as prescribed. At the same time, we can work on some new skills for getting anxiety under control (skills not pills!). If you’d like, I can work with you and with your doctor to see if medication can be reduced or eliminated.
I've had anxiety for a long time. Is it too late?
It’s never too late! You can get anxiety relief regardless of your age or how long the issues have been there. When anxiety has been there a long time, it just makes sense that it can take some time to resolve it. But it is definitely possible – I see it everyday. I’ve worked with people as old as 94 years old. I’ve also worked with many people who’ve had anxiety for as long as they can remember.
What does “HOLISTIC” anxiety treatment mean?

Anxiety counseling services might be covered in part by your health insurance if you have out-of-network coverage. Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:
- Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
- What is my coverage for out-of-network providers?
- What is my deductible?
