My areas of specialty include anxiety , depression, stress, LGBTQQI issues, teens (high school and older), and women's issues.
We've all seen the stereotypical therapists on TV, but that's not what you'll find with me. I am a down-to-earth person, which is reflected in my approach as a therapist. Compassion, warmth, and believe it or not, humor is what you will experience in our work together. You first must feel comfortable with your therapist for the experience to be successful.

I have over 12 years experience working with adults and youth facing depression, anxiety , trauma, grief, eating disorders, BPD.
Life is beautiful, and sometimes rocky and unpredictable. By nature, humans are collective beings. When we suffer or feel down or lost, we need others - someone to talk to, someone who can offer a healthy perspective and someone who helps us see our own personal good and path again. In my practice, I create a safe and trusting environment, providing people with the emotional support needed to overcome challenging times and make positive adjustments to be and feel your best.

I offer integrative Jungian psychodynamic therapy to people motivated to address underlying reasons for their struggles. The presenting concern for most regards relationships. We have come to find that symptoms of anxiety and depression are usually rooted in relationships with primary attachment figures. Hidden wounds may manifest as life-long beliefs that you are damaged, overly sensitive, unhealthy, and have poor judgement. On the one hand you may be quite accomplished, socially and professionally, but deep inside you may suspect that you are irrevocably broken, eternally confused, and unlovable.

As a caring & experienced psychotherapist, I listen carefully & respond honestly in person or by phone, FaceTime, zoom, Skype. Parental neglect or abuse leaves us with low self esteem, unresolved hurts & insufficient coping skills. Self criticism leads to painful and negative beliefs that cause depression and anxiety . We begin with the formative events in your life & your current issues. By drawing on family systems & psychodynamic principles, I use the latest interpersonal, cognitive & behavioral techniques with an informal and collaborative therapeutic approach that leads you toward greater self understanding & positive steps.

I’ve helped clients emerge from anxiety , trauma, depression, low self-esteem, & burnout with a client-centered, trauma informed, & multicultural approach.
Maybe you’ve dedicated many years to meeting the needs of your family, your children, or your career. Perhaps you feel like no matter what you do, it’s never enough, and you’ve become burned out, frustrated, maybe even numb. You might be coping with a major life transition such as a divorce, job change, or a newly empty nest. Suddenly, you hear a wakeup call: Who am I now, and what do I need to be happy?

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.
