Depression, anger, shame, anxiety, ADHD, trauma, relationship issues, problematic patterns - you can start to reclaim your life from them now by contacting me.
We run. We hide. We fight. We comply. And nothing changes. The stress/pain remains. We go to bed and get up the next day to do it all over again. Maybe you're at the beginning stage of coping with a stressful event. Maybe you know you need support. Maybe you don't know what you need. Maybe you're feeling out of options. Life can throw some difficult, seemingly impossible, events at us. When that happens, it's normal to feel out of control. But there is hope. I’ve spent over two decades helping people remove obstacles to living a more fulfilling life. You can feel in control again and experience life as joyful and fun.

I have experience working with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, chronic illness, relational challenges, life transitions/adjustment, and trauma.
If there is one thing in life that is guaranteed, it is that it’s unpredictable. The many twists and turns we experience throughout life can be challenging and overwhelming to manage. My goal is to help you navigate this unfamiliar territory and become the best version of yourself! I help my clients achieve this by looking within: accessing their own strengths, values, and purpose, while providing an empathic and nurturing environment.

I believe therapy is an opportunity to be compassionately curious about ourselves – to reflect on our experiences, patterns, losses, traumas, and relationships, and consider how they impact our wellbeing and our sense of self. I want to support you in your process of tending to the pieces of yourself and your story that often feel sticky or unapproachable and offer a space to explore ways to find peace and a sense of grounding. If you’re going through a major loss, experiencing anxiety/depression or noticing patterns in your relationships, I am here to witness your insights and strengthen your connection to self.

Life can be demanding and stressful, even when things are going well. This is especially true for high achievers. High achievers have a great number of strengths that have helped them be successful. However, high achievers often struggle with stress, anxiety, depression, perfectionism, uneven work/life balance, role overload/conflict, and interpersonal relationship challenges. These struggles can take a toll on your health and overall quality of life. If you are a high achiever, I can help you discover how you can achieve your personal and professional goals, while living a high quality, healthy, meaningful, and fulfilling life.

Life can be stressful and dealing with it can lead to anxiety, depression, self-esteem concerns and many other emotions that can leave us feeling completely overwhelmed and with little hope that things will ever get better. But I know that people are capable of extraordinary things, especially when we open our hearts to having someone present throughout the journey to self-improvement. As a Christian, I feel that this journey is meant to be shared with others. As a former caregiver who routinely saw good people at their very worst times, I understand the need to feel heard, seen, valued, respected, encouraged, and supported.

I specialize in distressed relationship issues, depression, anxiety and PTSD.
I enjoy my work! I spent 19 years working in a church-based Christian counseling center. During that time I counseled primarily women. Each woman taught me something about their relationships, their challenges, and their hearts. I believe adult women (over 18) experience a safe haven, a lot of grace, and well-developed clinical skills. My training focused on relationship issues, depression, anxiety disorders, domestic violence, and childhood abuse.

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.
