Theresa Schaffer LCSW

Telehealth/Online Anxiety Therapist

Welcome to my practice! I’m Theresa Schaffer and I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), anxiety therapist, and OCD counselor. I’m here to support motivated adults on their journey towards a life free from anxiety and substance use disorders. If you’ve been struggling with constant worry, fear, and the impact of anxiety on your daily life, you’re not alone. Together, we can work towards a brighter, more confident future that is no longer limited by anxiety.


As a seasoned professional in the field for over twenty years, I understand the challenges you’re facing. I’ve spent years helping people just like you overcome the grip of anxiety disorders and substance use issues. My approach is rooted in evidence-based therapies and a deep commitment to your well-being. I firmly believe that with the right guidance and tools, you can regain control over your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.


People come to me looking for a therapist who is compassionate, genuine, and affirming. Sessions with me are practical and focused on learning new tangible skills. We always go at your pace, never pushing to a place you don’t feel ready to go.
