Are you a woman struggling with infertility, challenged with anxiety or depression during pregnancy, after having a child or coping with pregnancy/infant loss? Each of these specific struggles are worthy of validation of feelings, empathetic listening, development of coping strategies and an objective supportive place to gain perspective.
Are you finding yourself feeling unable to cope with the challenges of day to day life, job stress, divorce, family strain, relationship problems, and/or symptoms of depression and anxiety ? Seeking out brief solution focused therapy is sometimes a great way to refocus and get back on track. Therapy does not need to be long term. Therapy can focus on the here and now while using the past to connect the dots to today's struggle. Therapy is an investment in yourself, your family and your future.

Most people seek counseling when they have exhausted all efforts at making their pain go away, or in changing the dynamics of an important relationship, or in making a successful life change or transition. Do you find yourself feeling, thinking, and behaving in ways that you wish you could change? You know what you are supposed to do, but for the life of you you can't seem to do it! Are you discouraged and frustrated? Sad and afraid? Do you struggle with depression, anxiety , trauma, anger, and loneliness? To find healing, "what was hurt within a relationship, must be healed within a relationship." We were created for relationship.

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.
