I am passionate about working with and supporting trauma, family/life change, panic and anxiety concerns, and relational concerns.
I'm currently full- but my Mindful Way colleagues may still have openings. Making the step to come to therapy is a hard one. I feel honored to provide a warm, safe, and compassionate space for you to share your story and truly be heard. I believe you are the expert on your relationships, health, emotions, and body. I work with Adults and children (ages 2-7). I welcome folks of all backgrounds (ethnicity, race, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation) and strive to provide a safe, comfortable, culturally responsive environment that supports your healing journey.

Through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) we can work together to address anxiety, past trauma, boundaries, codependency, and insecurity.
You want a healthy, fun relationship, with a sense of safety and security, with healthy boundaries, connection, and where you can be yourself. Your emotional health may stand in the way of creating a healthy relationship with a healthy person. Your past, with trauma and toxic relationships, and your present anxiety with the negative thoughts swirling in your mind keep you from engaging in relationships the way you would like to, keep you second guessing and never feeling stable in relationships, and keep you falling into the same relationship patterns and self sabotage

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.
