As mentioned, I am going to try to answer many more questions over the next few days, but I wanted to provide some resources as I am wrapping up.

Original Post: I’m a psychologist currently providing online psychotherapy. I’ve been providing therapy for several years now and specialize in treating people with a history of perfectionism and anxiety. While I can’t provide therapy over reddit, I am happy to answer general questions about symptoms and treatment of anxiety, online therapy, and mental health/psychological issues in general.
Outside of the therapy room, I love young adult (YA) and sci-fi stories! Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Supernatural, The Magicians, etc.

Edit 1:13PM EST: Wow, thank you all for the questions! I am going to take periodic breaks and answer as many as I can.
Edit 5:45PM EST: I am still here! I am taking my time and trying to answer as many as I can. I will edit the post when I am no longer answering. I'm hoping to answer as many questions as I can over the next few days. I appreciate all of you sharing and being vulnerable. I am reading every single post. Please keep in mind that I can't answer super specific, personal questions and am doing my best to give resources and general answers when possible in those situations.
