If you're suffering from anxiety, it can feel like your stomach is always churning, your mind is constantly racing and you feel like you’re out of control. Your anxiety can show up in different areas of your life and at different times. Maybe it’s in your everyday life, or it shows up in your relationships, with money, or your work. It makes it hard for you to concentrate, to be present with people you care about and to enjoy the things you like to do. At times you feel overwhelmed and stuck like there is no way out of this feeling and you wish you could just go to sleep and wake up and the anxiety be gone.

My psychotherapeutic practice opens a vital place where an individual's speech, and sometimes their silence, can be generated and heard. Matters that carry such urgency —sadness, despair, anguish, but also joy and pleasure— are understood within this approach as always profoundly individual, demanding to be met in their singularity. Together we work to allow new perspectives to emerge, new lives to be made.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?

Some of the most common types of mental health providers in 3141 are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
