Hey doc. I just got turned down for a job the other day. It occurred to me that social anxiety and performance anxiety caused me to fall short of my potential and not get the job. I’ve never had performance anxiety this bad before.

Do you have any tips, tricks, or suggestions about how to curb this anxiety in important situations?

I think you pissed off the Russian troll machine.

I’ve been through a few bad episodes of life during the past three years, starting when I got expelled and then readmitted to college, my life partner shortly after graduation had a traumatic brain injury, and the death of close loved ones along the way doesn’t help much either. I’ve been out of college for 3 years now.

I’ve had the inclination to see a therapist to work through my anxieties for a while now. Is there a clinic you might recommend in the Boston area? Is there a type of psychiatrist you would recommend who specializes in social anxiety?
