Therapist could help conquer post-burglary fears

Q: My apartment was burglarized while I was away about three months ago. I have insurance (thanks, Dad!), so the financial loss isn’t significant. But I can’t shake my anxiety. I hate sleeping there now, and although I know that it’s unlikely someone will come back, that doesn’t make me feel any better. I feel panicky a lot when I’m in there alone. I try to remind myself that it’s not logical that lightning will strike twice, but I feel horrible and am considering moving.
