- Group Therapy for (Mixed) Anxiety Disorders. Led
by Andre Papantonio, Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor
This group is for adults (18 and up) who suffer from any of the
anxiety disorders. The chief approach is mindfulness-based
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Participants are taught a graceful
way of relating with unwanted, anxious thoughts: to neither block
nor try to change or chase away those thoughts, but merely to
recognize them as symptoms, to tolerate them and to allow them to
go away by themselves. This gentle approach does not seek to
control the mind, but rather embodies the slogan, "You don't have
to believe everything you think."
The group will meet every Thursday from 5:45 PM to 7:15 PM. Cost is
$35 per session. It is not time limited; patients may participate
for as long as they and the therapist agree is indicated. Each
participant will meet with the therapist for an hour of evaluation
before joining the group.
Andre Papantonio, LCPC, has over thirty years of experience with
anxiety disorders, and has presented on the topic at the annual
conferences of ADAA, the Obsessive Compulsive Foundation, NASW,
etc. Please call him at 410-825-1257 to inquire further about the

Transform your relationship with anxiety.
Lead a happier, more productive life.
Social anxiety is the fear and worry of being judged and evaluated
by others that prevents people from being able to do the things
they want to do. People with social anxiety want to be friendly,
open, and sociable, but their fear holds them back. Fortunately,
social anxiety is a fully treatable anxiety disorder that can be
overcome with work, practice, and persistence.
Using a form of therapy called ACT (acceptance and
commitment therapy), we will focus on developing skills and
techniques designed to help you conquer your fear of social
situations. In developing these skills, people are able to start
facing their anxiety directly while beginning to lead more
fulfilling lives. Please join us on our journey!
