My 11-year-old really is struggling with anxiety. Is there anything I can do to help her?

Dear Greenville First Steps,

My 11-year-old really is struggling with anxiety. She doesn’t like to ever be put into new situations or to have schedule changes. She often complains about having the door shut to her room at night or being in the dark. She always struggled with being fearful but has been worse since Covid. Is there anything I can do to help her?
