About

My road to becoming a LCSW started by having debilitating panic attacks. What was my worst nightmare became my passion to help others recover from anxiety. I suffered from panic attacks for many years, until a major setback caused my life to derail. I dropped out of college after having a panic attack in class. I could no longer function without having someone with me at all times. I sought treatment and slowly began to regain my life back. Each success pushed me further to my ultimate goal of becoming a LCSW.
Treatment is focused on learning new skills to address frightening body sensations, phobic avoidance, and "what if" thoughts. Anxiety produces a myriad of body sensations including dizziness, palpitations, stomach distress, sweating and avoidance of trapped situations. Clients often have an irrational fear of dying or losing control. Recovery is not just about tools and techniques.
Every client comes with their unique life story. Filled with ups and downs, conflicts, and obstacles. Addressing these issues, in context of how they interplay with anxiety is a key component to treatment. However your anxiety manifests, I look forward to hearing your story and being a part of your recovery.
