Kristi Thrailkill is a Clinical Social Worker, Licensed Psychotherapist, and owner of Baltimore Family Therapy.
She has an eclectic list of specialties, and is most simply described as an Anxiety Disorder Specialist & Relationship-Fixer (she knows that is not a thing...but she's going to make it a thing).
She focuses on the worries & doubts that hold her clients back while also paying particular attention to the interpersonal dynamics that have shaped them. She believes true happiness is often based upon the relationships we hold dearest—spouses, extended family, friends…and if there is a hole in any of those systems, it’s her jam to mend those fences.
& I will tell you personally...I am EXCITED to share today’s episode with you all because it is SO POWERFUL.
We are talking all about anxiety, in terms of feeling anxious, in terms of clinical anxiety, and then in terms of how we can better deepen & understand people in our lives that struggle with a different type of anxiety than we do. Kristi shares some seriously impactful ideas & concepts while also giving tips, tricks & tangible things we can implement to honestly build lives we are really excited about.
She has the passion, education & knowledge, but also that best friend vibe that I KNOW you are going to LOVE. Can’t wait to hear what you think!

“Choosing to be happy. And choosing to be less anxious. And doing the things that you need to do in order to get there.”
“A panic attack is caused for NO reason. An anxiety attack has a cause.”
“How many times has this fear actually been proven right? We say all the time, what if it goes wrong, what if it goes wrong? We never say what if it goes RIGHT.”
“Even when you’re having an anxiety attack, reminding yourself, I’ve survived this before.”
“You have a right to be heard, and you are worth your story being told and you are worth feeling better.”
