Let's Deal With Anxiety!

A sensitively insensitive blog empowering you to deal with your anxiety. Written by a West Michigan anxiety specialist.    

Thanks for submitting!



Let's face it, telling someone to face their fears or deal with their anxiety comes off as insensitive & typically is not well received. However, since 2015, that is exactly what I have told my clients as a leading anxiety specialist in the State of Michigan.   

My name is Shawn Nabors, I am the owner of The Anxiety Treatment Center of West Michigan and a mental health anxiety specialist who exclusively treats anxiety disorders.  There is a scary trend happening in our society, we are becoming more dependent on needing relief from our anxiety symptoms and becoming less capable of dealing with our anxiety & the things that trigger it.


Anxiety is by far the leading mental health issue in the U.S. & our inability to deal with it is a huge reason why.  As a specialist, I empathetically but firmly help my clients through their anxiety issues by helping them to deal with their anxiety-provoking triggers.  

The Let's Deal With Anxiety Blog is designed to be a resource for how to effectively deal with your anxiety issues in a variety of situations. In this blog, you will learn from an anxiety specialist effective techniques for facing your fears head-on.


Let's Deal with Anxiety Blog: 12-Week Anxiety Skills Course


As an anxiety specialist, I have seen a disturbing trend related to how anxiety is addressed. All too often, symptom management is the primary goal of addressing anxiety issues. The problem with this approach is that people can develop a chronic dependency on needing their anxiety symptoms lowered.

Adaptive approaches to anxiety are methods that empower people to develop a strong resiliency towards anxiety. When a person has a strong & healthy level of tolerance for anxiety, they are much less bothered by anxiety when it is felt.

Since 2015, I have served West Michigan with an evidence-based anxiety treatment program that helps clients become better adapted to anxiety rather than chase an endless cycle of anxiety symptom relief. This treatment program is called Adaptive Anxiety Therapy.

12-Week Anxiety Skills Course

I am excited to announce that Adaptive Anxiety Therapy is now available in the form of a 12-week anxiety skills course called Adaptive Anxiety Training. Students in this skills course learn the same adaptive anxiety skills taught in the Adaptive Anxiety Therapy program. Over the course of 12-weeks, students of this course learn quickly deployable cognitive and behavioral skills for anxiety issues such as panic attacks, social anxiety, chronic worry, general anxiety issues, performance anxiety, and health anxiety.

Adaptive Anxiety Training is exclusively marketed to the State of Michigan and is the first comprehensive anxiety skills course of its kind.
