I have worked with adolescents and adults, particularly transition-age youth (ages 16–25), struggling with general life stressors, life transitions, depression, anxiety , trauma, grief, relationship & attachment issues, body image, personal identity, and LGBTQ+ issues.
Some of us hold immense pain resulting from isolation, shame, humiliation, oppression, and marginalization felt individually and collectively. My clinical work is rooted in anti-racism and informed by Relational-Cultural Theory. I utilize a variety of trauma informed techniques and approaches to meet my clients’ needs. Together, we will collaborate in identifying both individual and systemic elements that have impacted your well being and unlock your full potential by uncovering the strengths, courage, and solutions that are already inside of you. I believe healing happens when we are able to deeply connect to ourselves and others.

I invite you to an open space to hear your own voice. In a fast pace world one may often find themselves feeling a sense of 'separation from self'. As you practice noticing your experience, and listening to the messages of your emotions and physiological sensations, a deeper understanding develops. By ‘attending and befriending' ones pain and suffering it settles inside, and symptoms of stress, depression, and anxiety become integrated into healthier lifestyle patterns allowing for greater joy and overall well-being.

I have years of experience with individuals struggling with narcissistic abuse, addiction, anxiety , depression, personality disorder, trauma, and OCD.
I believe one of the most courageous things you can do is begin to understand your own story. Many people see therapy as an intimidating situation. Often people envision a one-sided interaction with a distant therapist providing ambiguous feedback or over-generalized commentary. I am the opposite! I spend the time to gain get to know you and provide real, honest observations. I work to identify your personal strengths and utilize them to work towards your goals- I don't believe therapy has to be an emotionally painful process. Since 2014, I have helped individuals from a variety of backgrounds find meaning and purpose.

Many clients I work with are experiencing burn-out, anxiety , depression, and a general sense of overwhelm.
Life can be hard, but it can also be wonderful and exciting. Challenge finds its way into our lives in many ways and we are not always equipped to cope or mange life’s demands. I want you to know that you are not alone in this, no matter what you are going through. In my practice, I work with many clients who are are in helping professions or high stress academic fields. Whether you are a student, teacher, healthcare worker, or nurse, it can take a significant amount of mental and emotional energy to make it through the day. You deserve to prioritize your own well-being and therapy can offer a respite from the demands of your life.

I have worked with clients ages 14-40 who suffer with issues such as trauma, abuse, anxiety , depression, low self-esteem, & major life transitions.
Are you feeling anxious? Are you overwhelmed & overstimulated? Are you saying things like "I just don't feel like myself" and feel like this isn't how things should be? Every step of the journey through fertility/infertility, pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period can sometimes feel like an uphill battle no one prepared you for. In a time where others expect you to feel bliss, it is frustrating when you feel sadness, hopelessness, and fear instead. You don't have to suffer with anxiety , depression, & your scary thoughts alone. You are not your thoughts, and your feelings aren't facts.

These last few years have presented many challenges for everyone. Depression, anxiety , addiction, grief and other issues are on a rise. It is not always easy to make the decision to reach out for therapy. However, therapy can help and support a person through what they are experiencing.

I feel confident to work with many mental health issues.

I have special expertise in addiction and also work with anxiety , depression and trauma.
I have been a psychotherapist for 25 years. I see adults and adolescents. I do not see children, 11 and under. Psychotherapy works best when the process seeks change. The focus of change needs to be delineated through a collaborative relationship between therapist and client. As a Ph.D. I understand the importance of applying evidence based methods and staying updated in relation to the current state of knowledge. This underlies your effectiveness as a therapist. Fees are reasonable and customary. I am on most major insurance panels. My office is in a safe location. I am the sole occupant.

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.
