You worry. I worry. We all do….
There’s a lot for women to feel worried and anxious about, if you’re paying attention to the world today.

Exploring the worries and stress with curiosity and compassion allows you to truly know yourself and live more authentically. And, you will discover someone who is strong, capable and resilient, come what may.

Battling with your worries can make sleep difficult, can make it hard to feel fully present, grounded and really hard to focus on tasks. The struggle keeps you from trusting your inner wisdom and intuition and leaves you feeling like you’re not fully living your life. I know, I’ve been there.

I’m Elizabeth Cush and I’m a licensed clinical professional counselor in Annapolis, MD, and the creator and host of the Woman Worriers podcast. I’ve struggled with anxiety and worry most of my life. Over the last 15 years I’ve learned to work with the anxiety when it shows up, to trust my inner wisdom, and to speak up and be heard.

I want to help you build a caring, compassionate relationship with your anxiety and unleash the warrior within.

It’s time to stop battling against yourself and start using your power to meet the challenges of everyday with energy, purpose, and bravery.
