How can we be of best service to those struggling with anxiety when it seems everywhere you turn there are valid reasons to be anxious? This 3 hour class will broaden your understanding of anxiety and teach you valuable ways to work with anxiety.
“A very refreshing take on an age-old issue. I really appreciated the perspective of anxiety as an entry point for insight and evolution and the multi-prong approach to managing it, rather than looking at anxiety simply as a disorder to get rid of.”

“A very refreshing take on an age-old issue. I really appreciated the perspective of anxiety as an entry point for insight and evolution and the multi-prong approach to managing it, rather than looking at anxiety simply as a disorder to get rid of.”

“The class had a very intuitive flow and approach to work with anxiety that I can apply not only to my work with my clients but to my own life. The summary of polyvagal theory and how to use it was an added bonus and Veronica was such a compassionate and heartfelt teacher and guide. I’m always satisfied when I learn with her.”
“What a wise and enriching class. This holistic and integrative approach just makes so much more sense and I love how she utilizes practices from a variety of schools of thought and fuses them together in a very practical and impactful way.”
“Starting with the distinction between productive versus counterproductive anxiety set the tone for the entire class which unfolded in a very smart, practical, warm and caring way.”

Meet Your Instructor

Veronica Vaiti, LCSW-R, CCATP

Co-Founder & Executive Director

Veronica Vaiti is a NY State Licensed Clinical Social Worker who is the Co-Founder and Executive Director of Bhava Therapy Group.

As a child and teen who struggled with anxiety, Veronica has learned firsthand how debilitating unmanaged anxiety can be. In this class, Veronica teaches not only from her professional expertise and years of helping others, but from her firsthand lived experience of learning how to harness and manage the energy of one’s anxiety to deepen insight, promote self-growth, and create change.  Whether serving as an integrative psychotherapist, mentor, consultant or instructor, Veronica is driven by her profound respect for and curiosity in the human condition and believes in our innate creative capacity for resilience, realization and evolution.


Is the focus of this class for treating anxiety in adults, teens, children or all ?
The focus of this class is mostly the adult population’s experience with anxiety although the course facilitator has experience working with anxiety in all ages and offers a variety of case examples to illustrate the lessons, some of which may be related to teens and children.

What is meant by Holistic in this class title?
Holistic is a term that refers to interconnectedness of the various parts of a whole system and in particular in this class, the whole system would be a unique human being and a holistic approach would one that considers many lifestyle factors including biological, environmental, emotional, professional and relational for instance.

Do I need a certain qualification to utilize a holistic approach in the treatment of anxiety with my clients?
The realms of discussion of taking an holistic approach to working with our clients who struggle with anxiety all fall within the bounds of how a licensed mental health clinician and social worker can practice and would not require any additional certification unless of course a particular clinician wished to pursue such. An example would be a licensed clinical social worker who was then certified as a yoga teacher or a yoga therapist.
