I had been experiencing anxiety since I was a young boy and it had been holding me back from achieving what I wanted in life. I was looking for help, so I came to Wellnest’s Access & Wellness Center and began working with their counselors. Through therapy sessions, I began to understand the origins of my anxiety and learned coping strategies that gave me more control. Gradually, I was able to take the initial steps towards going out and making friends. I started a job and even planned to return to school. Thanks to the help I received at Wellnest, I am now on my way in the world.
