My specialties are working with people with autism & Asperger's, Veterans, First responders, trauma, anxiety , and depression.
We all need support sometimes. Life can be difficult. We can quickly feel overwhelmed and get consumed with negative thinking. When we don't have the tools to cope, in a healthy way to tolerate stressors, we can fall into destructive patterns. My counseling style is caring, supportive & intentional. I want you to feel understood so that you are comfortable enough to explore your emotions, expore tough issues and help you to gain insight into your situation. For those who identify with the Christian faith, we can discuss Godly principles. Whatever your beliefs or values are, it impacts our experiences. I am glad you're here.

My specialties include anxiety , depression, difficult life transitions, women's issues, unresolved trauma, grief, along with relationship and self-esteem related issues.
One's deepest desire is to be truly accepted and understood. Yet, many times we find ourselves afraid of being judged or ridiculed for sharing our true thoughts, feelings, and challenges. In our busy lives it is a rarity to find someone who is not only equipped but also has the desire to truly listen to our deepest thoughts. It is my belief that if given the needed support and proper surroundings, we will find that we hold the answers within ourselves to overcome the challenges we are facing.

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.
