About Social Anxiety is a digital media company that shares tips and strategies for managing social and performance anxiety and developing social skills. It is best known for providing reliable and accessible articles, workbooks, and courses on all topics related to social anxiety.
I founded About Social Anxiety in 2017 after having written about social anxiety online since 2007 for Verywell.com (formerly About.com).
I spent 10 years building a substantial online resource for people living with social anxiety at Verywell, but the company took a new direction and I’ve since been writing on a broader range of topics on that site.
However, I still felt like there were people who needed tips for social anxiety, and they needed them all in one place. That’s how About Social Anxiety was born.
I learned about how social anxiety is diagnosed and treated through my master’s degree in clinical psychology and work as a research assistant at the cognitive-behavioral therapy unit at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto.
I further learned about how anxiety is assessed during my time as a research associate at a psychological test publisher.
More importantly, I learned the hard way that people can go years with a phobia that can be easily treated. I don’t want that to happen to anyone else.
At About Social Anxiety, I share my knowledge through blog posts, workbooks, and courses aimed at answering all of your questions and helping you get the help you need to manage social or performance anxiety and live the life you deserve. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
