Hi. My name is Gretchen J. Penner. Thank you for visiting. For years I suffered from anxiety. I was always a stressful person, but there came a time in my life when my stress turned into anxiety.
I specialize and am trained in the treatment of trauma, anxiety and depression. Through evidence-based practices I help those who are suffering increase healthy coping skills and decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression.
At the Therapeutic Center for Anxiety and Trauma I offer outpatient therapy for a range of mental health services, especially those associated with anxiety and trauma. I collaborate with a team of professional clinicians to ensure the highest quality of care.
Anxiety and depression can steal our joy. It can stop us from doing the things we love, and impede on our daily activities including sleep, appetite, and overall peace. It can also have negative effects on our relationships, and even our faith. Living with anxiety is not always living. Sometimes, it’s barely surviving.
