Anxiety can be a debilitating condition. Fortunately, cognitive behavioral therapy has been proven to help people break free from anxiety's limitations. I work with individuals struggling with worry, indecisiveness, OCD, panic disorder, social anxiety, and generalized anxiety. I work collaboratively with people to set concrete goals and then systematically go about achieving them. My ideal client is someone who no longer wants anxiety to dictate their choices in life. My clients want the freedom and flexibility to make decisions based on values rather than fear.

It's time to start feeling better. You've tried distraction, talking to friends. But like a ball pushed underwater, your feelings of anxiety, unhappiness, grief or sadness keep surfacing. Distress disturbs your life, relationships and sleep. Worst of all, these bad feelings, like a shameful secret, isolate you. It doesn't have to be this way. Asking for help to feel better is a sign of strength, not weakness. I am dedicated to helping individuals and couples recognize and overcome the obstacles between them and their dreams. Personal growth, intimacy and self-confidence are natural outcomes of successful therapy.
