Tips, Tools and Practices for Stronger Confidence and Self-Worth.

While Valentine's Day is behind us, the desire for love, romance, and partnership are still at the forefront for many, especially those who are single. But dating can feel vulnerable, especially for those already struggling with depression, anxiety, and self-doubt. Lack of confidence leads to ineffective experiences or even non-action for some. Join Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and Dating Coach Molly Lyda, MA, as she shares helpful and proven practices to improve self-esteem while dating (or even in preparation for dating!) and learn to thrive while finding romantic love and partnership.

Ken and ADAA

"Prior to joining ADAA I wrote and produced several self-help audio programs including The Anxiety Solution Series, a 12-hour audio course, Stress Free, a compilation of six guided meditations, and The Personal Growth Series, a collection of seven hypnosis sessions. Since becoming a member of  ADAA and being elected to their Board of Directors, I have completed two books: Break Free from Anxiety and The Emetophobia Manual. Although my practice in Los Angeles was focused on treating anxiety disorders, prior to joining ADAA, I did not know other therapists who shared the same specialty.  Attending my first ADAA conference in 2013 changed that. The presentations filled the gaps in my knowledge and I met and become friends with other experts in the field.  The articles I have written and the webinars and videos I have produced for the ADAA website on health anxiety, the fear of driving, and emetophobia, have helped thousands of people around the world and they have generated close to one hundred patients in my private practice.  ADAA is an organization that uniquely benefits anxiety sufferers, therapist, and researchers."
