Do you feel lost, stuck, confused, or disconnected from your life? I believe that we are at our best when we are truly connected to what is important to us. Often, we become out of touch with our values and our own strengths. This can lead to depression, anxiety , and a variety of other issues. Exploring these issues with a therapist can encourage you to discover your innate strengths and inner resilience. I am here to provide a safe, confidential, and comfortable space to allow you to explore your thoughts, feelings, goals, and values

In these uncertain times of a global pandemic and racial injustice, many people are faced with increased anxiety , fear, anger and are left feeling disheartened. The gift of a therapeutic relationship is that it is built during times of emotional distress or when everyday life becomes overwhelming. It is within the vulnerability of the therapeutic relationship that I help people find their strength, embrace their imperfections, and fully align with their true inner self.

Spicy? Artsy? Neurodivergent? Hypermobile? Me too. Those on the fringe are my favorite kinds of people. Your emotions are intense. You see the best and worst in life. It can get hard though; the anxiety , rage, and sadness hurt. You get impulsive - say and do things you regret. You can be a hot mess. The emotional roller coaster is exhausting - you've been riding it all your life and want off. Familiar? The good news is it's gonna be ok. You're not "crazy". You don't have to live in misery. If you think you might have Borderline Personality Disorder, or are just a highly sensitive person, Dialectical Behavior Therapy can help.

Anxiety Therapists

What are the most common treatments for anxiety?

Talk therapy, particularly cognitive behavioral therapy, is the most common treatment for anxiety. Studies have shown it is equally effective as medication. Other popular 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 Behavioral 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.
