Therapy begins when we are ready to make a change. Pain and compassion are the forces that motivate us to grow. What worked well enough in the past no longer satisfies. Old habits, wounds, defenses, and fears have protected us, while holding us back. We’re seeing this now, after a long time. We want more peace, joy, purpose, love, connection, wisdom, and energy. We want to be more alive and engaged, even if that means facing what has been avoided and leaving the familiar behind. Changing has its risks and rewards, as does remaining where we are. The end of suffering is through the pain, to find the treasures beyond it.

I specialize in working with anxiety that may be due to a variety of reasons.
Being a child or teen right now is hard, with a lot of pressure and emotions dealing with school, friendships, social media, family, and their future. Supporting and helping our children navigate all of these factors, along with the new things that seem to pop up every day is stressful. My approach is that everyone can use therapy to learn skills to manage our emotions. My aim is to create a safe place for children to open up and learn tools to better manage their emotions and behaviors, and improve self-esteem. I strive to always provide a warm space, where you and your child feel safe to be vulnerable and work towards your goals.

You're lost in the weeds of to-do's, obligations, & responsibilities; your mind a cacophony of distractions clamoring for your attention. At some point, this life you built got so busy that you're no longer enjoying it. Instead, you're overwhelmed by the anxiety of it all; sure that something will go horribly wrong. You tell yourself that these worries aren't real, just scary stories you contemplate- your own "monster under the bed". So you push them to the back of your mind and slap a smile on your face, forging on. Unfortunately, until we open the door to face the boogeyman, that gnawing feeling of dread won't ever really go away.

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.
