Your wound is probably not your fault, but your healing is your responsibility. As your therapist, I will create a safe non-judgemental space for you to start your healing process. In your first session, we'll explore what brought you to therapy and then decide the most appropriate ways to help you make progress. We will look at how your thoughts affect your emotions and experiences. During treatment, I'll help you learn how to change the irrational thoughts or beliefs that are currently impacting you. The ultimate goal is to Empower You to Live Your Best Life.

Typical clients of mine are women that are dealing with life transitions, which can include a variety of topics such as breakups, career challenges, insecurity, attachment issues, friendship issues, anxiety/depression, and just general "I don't know what I'm doing with my life". I help my clients gain more self-compassion and confidence.

I don’t believe in cookie-cutter methods, not everybody's grief, anxiety, depression or any other issue is the same.
Often life throws us curve balls that prevent us from seeing ourselves, or a situation, clearly. This can be especially painful for children and adolescents. If you suspect your child needs professional help, you are probably right! I can teach your child tools to help them navigate the difficulties of life. Just because someone is young does not mean they aren't experiencing depression or anxiety, and there are solutions! I also have extensive experience in dealing with grief and/or trauma issues with children ages 3 - 18, as well as with adults.

I work with a wide array of issues including, anxiety, depression, trauma, stress-related problems, grief and loss, cross-cultural issues, substance abuse, anger management, domestic violence, parenting, family and couples’ relationships, and life transitions.
People seek my professional help for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, something in their lives is just not right. They may wish to make specific changes or to understand themselves better. They may struggle with their relationships, have difficulties in their jobs or studies, and/or old traumas continue to negatively affect their present. Also, sometimes they just don’t know what to do with their inner voice that is too critical and sabotages their lives. Therapy or counseling is not always about making big changes or exploring past issues. It can be used to simply have a place to check-in and stay attuned with themselves.

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.
