Announcement icon At the present time, I am only seeing clients via video sessions with Zoom. It is easy, safe, and confidential.
My goal for you is to live your best life. I want my clients to live life according to what they value and enjoy, not avoid what they fear or are unsure of. I want to help my clients to overcome the burdens anxiety and depression have had on family, work, school, and relationships. My focus is on individuals with anxiety and/ or diagnosed anxiety disorders with or without depression. Utilizing the evidence-based treatments of cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness, and exposure with response prevention , I will assist you in the most challenging struggles.
Utilizing these modalities in treatment will help to manage the anxiety provoking thoughts, situations, and emotions. When children come for anxiety treatment, we frequently engage in a version of CBT called CBPT (P for play). Play is a child's natural problem solver and we use it to reinforce new behaviors and emotions.
One factor unique to treatment is my therapy dog Chive. Chive is a toy Yorkshire Terriers who love coming to work and loves to play ball, cuddle, and play more ball. www.perspectivespsychservices.com
