For both children and adults, challenges can create anxiety, frustration, depression, and the feeling there is no way out. I offer a place of safety and support where you can freely process emotions and thoughts, come to a deeper understanding of yourself, and find ways to get yourself unstuck. Together, we look at self-defeating patterns and seek to understand their source. It is my goal to connect with clients regardless of where they may be in their experience. I partner with and hold space for clients of all ages, assisting them in finding their own internal strength and discovering practical solutions to challenges they face.

I skillfully and empathically align with such souls. I have decades of experience and proven approaches to empower individuals challenged with anxiety, depression, relationship struggles or existential fatigue resulting from being a highly sensitive or creative person who has lacked the necessary collaboration to gain greater self-understanding, expression, and actualization.

The season is changing and still nothing’s changed. Every morning is the same. The alarm goes off and you hit the snooze button over and over, before finally tumbling out of bed. Why? Because facing the day is drudgery. You get all the necessary tasks done, but without enthusiasm, connection, or joy. The panic and fear are just icing on the cake. That voice in your head tells you, “Don’t bother you’ll never measure up.” No one knows how hard it is to keep going. It doesn’t feel safe to tell them. Where did the voice come from? When did it start? Too long ago to remember. One thing’s for sure – nothing you’ve tried has worked.

In life, we all experience times when we struggle whether it be with guilt, shame, grief/loss, relationship issues or adjustment to change. With a little help, we can move through this and get to a brighter life. In the 20 years I have been a therapist I have helped many people with these issues. One of my favorite quotes is “If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.

If you're looking for a Venice anxiety therapist, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counseling in Venice.
