"Anxiety is ruthless. What starts out as a helpful coping mechanism eventually turns into something that can overtake your entire life. Anxiety is helpful in moderation, however, for those with anxiety disorders there is no such thing as moderation. I specialize in treating anxiety disorders both as a solitary diagnosis and as part of a co-morbid struggle. I have experience working with eating disorders and chemical dependency and know how much of a struggle it can be to tackle that and an anxiety disorder."

My approach places a central focus on development of a strong therapeutic relationship and creating a space where one can explore personal issues. Symptoms are often what bring people to seek therapy. I see a symptom as a means for understanding the underlying issues that cause them. I have experience working with adults, adolescents, and children (ages 10 and older). In support of working with adolescents and children, I also work with parents in a parallel manner."
