social anxiety in 15 year old dd

Hello everyone,

After seeing a counselor for some anxiety, a counselor told me that she thinks my dd has some social anxiety with starting h.s., but feels as she gets older and gains more confidence, it will lessen. She doesn't feel she has to be seen, although the door is open if necessary. My dd is not an unhappy teen, but she is quite the loner. She is perfectly content spending almost every weekend and weeknight with hubby and I. Maybe 3 times a week, she will gt together with a friend, but it is almost always with our urging her to. Does anyone have issues like this? Any advice? I know she talks to friends in school, but not much out.
