About

My ideal client is someone who is diagnosed with anxiety disorder. These symptoms develop in childhood and are still present through adulthood if not treated. Individuals need to face their fears with the support of a therapist. By trying to remain calm, without becoming overly anxious or having a panic attack. My goal as a therapist is to help them build their self-confidence so they can control their fears and feel secure. I work with clients to remain calm and practice breathing techniques. I build empathy with my clients by explaining that they are not alone in their struggles.
My specialty is to help the client understand that their feelings are out of proportion and to help them not have negative persistent thoughts. I am available by phone, which has been reassuring for my clients. It empowers them to develop self control over their anxiety.
Please reach out to me to do an initial assessment, and introductory conversation.
