Hello! Thanks for stopping by- I am currently unable to take new clients, but can consider adults for waitlist. **Therapy dog in training on premises** Are you feeling like you are struggling to be the best version of yourself? Feeling stuck or hopeless, having family stress, life transition stress? I believe that everyone can benefit from counseling- even the most capable and healthy people can go through low or dark times which might require a little extra support. For those with more serious mental illnesses, these times can exacerbate existing struggles, making everything thing harder.

My career has been dedicated to the treatment of children and adolescents with a wide range of presenting issues including: family disruptions, school related and social anxiety , depression, ADHD, sexual orientation, gender identity and trauma.
During this crisis of coronavirus restrictions and disruption of family routines, many kids are anxious with worries about school, missing friends, and not being able to enjoy their normal activities. Telehealth sessions (video) are a way to offer support and to help both kids and parents talk about the challenges they are facing. The goal of sessions is to help family members develop positive coping strategies, enhance communication and build self-confidence during this challenging time. Sometimes kids need a neutral, outside person with whom to sort their feelings. Helping kids in this way is the focus of my work.

The uncertainty in the world today is intensifying many of our feelings of isolation, sadness, anxiety , and depression. New routines may be causing friction among family members who are working or learning from home. Stress levels are high, and lots of people are missing their old lives. It can all seem overwhelming at times. Would you like a safe place to talk through your feelings and learn new ways to cope?

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.
