Waitlist for new clients
I most often work with individuals hoping to navigate symptoms of stress, anxiety, depression, and trauma.
I currently have a waitlist for new clients. Help me, help you. Taking a step toward beginning therapy is brave and you aren’t alone! Though it may feel daunting initially, therapy can be quite rewarding. I find joy in discovering strengths in others they may not notice in themselves, while providing practical tools, resources, and support.

Do you have thoughts, behaviors, or maladaptive patterns that have become a hinderance in your life? Have they become a barrier to creating and maintaining healthy relationships? Is this interfering with your sense of self, causing growing self-doubt or poor self-esteem? It is likely that these patterns were formed as defense mechanisms, uniquely designed in response to early experiences and environments, but now they no longer fit into the context of your life. Often these patterns are so entrenched in us that we’re not sure where they came from or how to stop them, which may produce feelings of anxiety, depression, fear, or grief.

Hello! I'm Evan Davies, I specialize working with substance use, anxiety, depression, and trauma. Alongside my specialties I have a knack for helping people that go to therapy feeling ambivalent as to what they're looking for, what they're struggling with or how to describe it. I want everyone to know that they're welcomed. Finding a therapist that you feel is a good fit and just therapy in of itself can be difficult. Being aware of that helps me strive to meet people where they're at, modify my approach accordingly and help with any barriers during the onboarding process.

I've had the privilege of working with individuals and families on various issues, including sexual abuse and assault, other forms of trauma, LGBTQ issues, depression, anxiety, substance use and grief/loss.
There's a beautiful passage by Jacquelyn Small that sums up the way I view and practice therapy: "When therapeutic relating occurs, both parties have dissolved the boundary between the one needing help and the other offering it; they are simply two beings bouncing off each other in truth; We all just need clear people to bounce off of so we can see our own light." I strongly believe that we're the experts of our own lives and sometimes we just need a safe, non-judgmental person to see us, believe our experiences and remind us that we're deserving and healing is possible.

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.
