Although I am a generalist, with experience treating a wide variety of clinical issues, I do specialize in the treatment of stress, depression, anxiety , ADHD, couples therapy, child and adolescent therapy, and wellness coaching.
At Heart Light, we believe that personal growth is a natural psychological process that fundamentally belongs to you, not to us. Some mental health professionals seem to imagine themselves as mental and emotional surgeons, whose goal is to identify problems and then fix them for you. We envision ourselves as more akin to doctors that deliver babies. We are ready to intervene as and when needed, but our primary role is to facilitate a natural process that belongs, first and foremost, to you. Our goal is to guide and encourage your growth by helping you to empower yourself.

Sometimes, it can be a challenge to see "the forest through the trees." Having someone to talk to who is outside your circle of family and friends, to reflect back what's important to you, can be the crucial piece that helps you build the bridge back to yourself. This is one aspect of what I do when working with people interested in creating improved health, positive relationships, or achieving an important goal. If you are struggling with depression or anxiety , or wanting to discover your specific formula for happiness, I'd consider it a privilege to work with you.

Many adolescents and young adults struggle with anxiety and depression.
Life can be challenging. Everyone wants to be heard, and it is important to have an outlet. It can be hard to reach out when in need of support, and it can be even harder to find the right therapist for you. When first meeting with a client I focus on building a therapeutic alliance. I want to know your interests and what's important to you. I understand that in order for someone to make change support and care need to be built through trust. Trust doesn't come easy, but with patience, it can be built. I aim to develop a strong bond with each of my clients. You are not alone, we will walk together on your healing journey.

I specialize in the treatment of eating disorders, depression, mood disorders, and anxiety disorders.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist with more than 15 years of experience in mental health and wellness. My passion stems from wanting to help others learn new ways of coping with their environment and garnering new skills to help manage current life stressors and hurdles. My belief is that from early childhood we learn healthy, and sometimes unhealthy, strategies to manage challenges. Coping styles, especially maladaptive ones, work for a period of time, but may become ineffective. When this occurs, people often seek therapy. My job as a therapist is to help you learn, and implement, healthier coping strategies.

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.
