David helped me identify and notice the things that trigger my anxiety before it gets too bad and I feel overwhelmed. When the spiral begins, I have just found it easier to focus on that, talk about it rationally with myself and others, and move past it. I am not great at asking for help, something I am working on, and as my first therapist David made the process very easy and comfortable.
