I specialize in working with adoption, LGBTQ+, and cross-cultural experiences, though I also often work with the following: anxiety, stress and coping, depression, romantic relationship concerns, and communication skills.
People often spend hours upon hours searching and struggling to find a therapist that seems like they will be a good fit for them. Does this sound familiar? As an experienced humanistic therapist, I prioritize matching my therapeutic approach to the individual needs and goals of each of my clients. Whatever your goals may be when you walk into the therapy room, I will work to ensure that we are able to work towards them in a way that respects your beliefs and makes the most sense to you.

Counseling is time we get to bring attention to what you’re feeling and, given what you’ve experienced already, notice what you're ready to connect with now. My practice is rooted in nurturing secure connection with self and others. I work collaboratively supporting feelings of security, purpose & fulfillment, alongside a titrated, intentional release of anxiety/ fear. I am perpetually intrigued at how things can shift naturally and feel surprisingly easier as the wisdom in our body/ nervous system is effectively included in healing conversation.

What are the most common treatments for anxiety?

Talk therapy, particularly cognitive behavioural therapy, is the most common treatment for anxiety. Studies have shown it is equally effective as medication. Other forms of therapy are popular, depending on a patient’s experience. Exposure therapy, for instance, can be useful for people dealing with fears and phobias, or who have experienced traumatic events. Dialectical Behavioural Therapy may be useful for patients who need help with emotion regulation. Anxiolytic medications, like benzodiazepines, can also help with calming a person enough to focus on the skills they’ve learned, and physical exercise has been shown to help symptoms of anxiety across the board.

How long does therapy for anxiety take to work?

The amount of time needed to alleviate symptoms depends on the severity of a person’s condition. Some therapies may take 5-20 weekly sessions to show results. Anti-depressant medications typically take two to four weeks before a benefit is felt. Anti-anxiety medications are felt typically within 20-30 minutes. Medications are best used to offer a patient a better headspace in which to work on techniques learned in therapy. Exercise, improved sleep habits, and meditation are effective, but takes weeks or months to show results.

When should I seek treatment for anxiety?

Everyone feels anxious at times, but when anxiety causes disruption to your daily life, it may be time to seek help. Such disruption can be mental, physical, or both: having fear dominate your thoughts, avoiding situations or objects that bring on feelings of anxiety, or experiencing shortness of breath, sweating, dizziness, or panic attacks. When these symptoms are recurrent and distressing, it may be time to talk to someone.

How effective is treatment for anxiety?

Treatment for anxiety has been shown to be moderately to highly effective, according to a large body of psychology studies and analyses. For some people, treatment using CBT or exposure therapy alone is effective. Others respond best to a combination of medication and therapy.
