Connecting with the versions of ourselves we want to be is challenging: anxiety , depression, gender dysphoria, stress, relationship issues, and myriad internal and external/systemic factors make it difficult to “show up” in the ways we would like. My goal as a clinician is to help you get in touch with and connect to the version of yourself most aligned with your values, while you learn how to effectively and consistently navigate the challenges along the way.

I work with women who want to explore and understand the impact of early childhood or traumatic experiences and how such experiences could contribute to anxiety , depression, low self esteem, relationships and potentially hinder them from accomplishing their life goals and/or the purpose God has for their life.
Life is hard. Period. Do you find life is pulling you in different directions leaving you stressed and overwhelmed? Maybe this shows up as you finding it hard to say "no" to others? Or you thinking that you are “never good enough” Or feeling lonely and isolated from your family, friends, or culture, such that you feel like no one understands you, no one really “gets” you? Or sometimes you do not feel like getting out of bed or want to do anything. Therapy with me is a space for you to explore ALL that is blocking you from being the best version of yourself. A place for you to realign, renew, live your best life, & flourish.

I have worked quite a bit with couples who have experienced infidelity. I also enjoy working with individuals struggling with anxiety , depression or other concerns helping them with coping strategies. Further, I have had a lot of experience working with healthcare professionals and first responders.

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.
