Have you been feeling overwhelmed and stressed out recently? I help young women and college students struggling with stress and anxiety . Being a young woman and trying to find your way into adulthood is not an easy path. Anxiety is a common feeling during this time, and a natural human emotion, but too much of it can prevent us from leading the life we want.

Through the course of a day, we all play multiple roles. Sometimes those roles can become restrictive and rigid, even inauthentic, as anxiety , depression, or shame cause us to feel less and less able to share ourselves honestly with those around us. For some, the trusting relationship created in therapy offers one of the few places where hiding is no longer necessary and one's whole self can be acknowledged without judgment, without shame. Together, we will create an environment conducive to the exploration of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that lends to greater self-understanding, new perspectives, and lasting change.

I have worked extensively with clients who have sought support for their anxiety , depression, eating disorder, family issues, relationship issues, transition to adulthood, and many others.
NOT Accepting New Clients at this time-My approach to therapy comes from a person centered lens and systems approach. In short, this means I approach every person that I have the honor to work with as the experts on their own lives and the many factors that effect their overall well-being. I approach every client with curiosity and unconditional positive regard and will hopeful help them to see themselves through this view as well. In session, patients can expect typical talk therapy with principles of behavior change techniques weaved in to provide some tools to meet their personal goals.

We want to feel peace and joy in this life. And mental health issues can make that difficult or nearly impossible to experience. I have experience treating clients with anxiety , OCD, depression, low self-esteem, and stressful life transitions which might look like racing thoughts, trouble sleeping or relaxing, difficulty getting rid of a particular thought or worry, feeling bad about yourself and the world, frequent tearfulness, or feelings of overwhelm. I provide a non-judgmental space to understand what you are experiencing. I work alongside clients to figure out what changes will get you to a place of well-being.

Some things cannot be done alone. Managing grief, living with debilitating anxiety , tolerating resentment that will not relent - all are life challenges that require the presence of a patient listener who can bring words to pain where previously there were none. Our therapeutic relationship will create a safe space to share troubling feelings, thoughts, and behaviors that have been experienced as shameful, embarrassing, or isolating. I offer individuals an opportunity to examine past choices, current patterns of behavior, and impending decisions in a curious manner that promotes self-reflection and increases self-awareness.

“Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful parts of us.” Deciding to go to therapy isn’t the easiest thing to do but it can be helpful when wanting to discover our own beautiful parts. Everyone deserves the opportunity to be able to have the time and space to divulge into their lives and become the best person they can be.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.
