Social Anxiety


Are you...

  • Anxious in social situations?
  • Nervous about being judged?
  • Worried about embarrassing yourself?
  • Concerned you won’t know what to say to people?
  • Avoiding social situations?
  • Holding yourself back professionally due to anxiety?

Imagine if...

  • You’re able to interact with ease - even with a group of people
  • No fear of embarrassment or of being judged
  • No need to “pre-think” everything you say - you’re able to speak spontaneously
  • You are more relaxed and confident at job interviews and networking events.
  • You have the freedom to develop a more fulfilling social life

Ready for relief? Mark Bottinick, LCSW-C has helped many overcome many anxiety and Social Phobia. He employs gentle techniques that are gaining a world-wide reputation for bringing about rapid, dramatic and long-lasting results.

Paradoxically, the idea of eliminating the fear caused by any phobia can itself be scary. People often subconsciously believe that their fear protects them from getting into situations where they could be embarrassed or judged. Rather than persuading clients to “feel the fear and do it anyway,” Mark’s method helps clients feel that it is safe to let go of the fear. Thus, they are able to address social phobia or other problems more directly and make rapid improvements without distress.

You don’t need to live with social anxiety. It’s unhealthy and robs you of quality of life. Why cope with feelings of anxiety if they can be comfortably eliminated? To learn how you can get on the path of a more relaxed, pleasurable life, call or email Mark for a free consultation. Mark works with people by phone and in his Silver Spring, MD office.

Get Beyond Talk!

Therapy That Gets Results!
My goal with therapy and coaching is transformation, not merely insight. Some people can spend years in therapy, and as a result, they are more insightful about their problems, but they still have all the same problems. I use techniques that often help people eliminate their problems. Insight is commonly a rewarding by-product of the work, but it's insight into problems now resolved.
