I can help you navigate concerns related to emotional intensity, anxiety, perfectionism, self-criticism, underachievement, frustration intolerance, peer relationships, and executive dysfunction.
Do you or your child display high emotional intensity? Passion and drive for learning? Insatiable curiosity, extreme focus and perfectionist tendencies? Deep empathy and awareness of social injustices and hypocrisy? Fear of trying new things and anxiety about the unknown? Gifted individuals are characterized by their heightened perceptions of self and the world around them, but are often limited in their ability to process their intense reactions and emotions. I understand and can relate to the varied and complex needs within the gifted population.

Women so often feel overwhelmed by responsibilities, expectations, and a need to do/be it all, they can feel like it's their fault that some days anxiety and depression get the best of them.
You have made the brave decision to seek support and you are worth it. Meeting with a therapist can be intimidating; it requires strength and vulnerability. We are imperfectly human and we deserve to work towards honest self-acceptance, empowerment, and esteem in a safe place. Anxiety, codependence, depression, grief, isolation, and feelings of powerlessness can leave us exhausted and at a loss for answers. It can be easy to forget that we deserve "to be loved, and to feel worthwhile" (W. Glasser). I invite you to remember that when experiencing stress. It would be an honor to be witness to the growth of your self love.

I partner with clients in order to support specific needs in the areas of depression, anxiety, stress, relational issues, spiritual concerns, and maternal mental health.
I value the counseling setting as a place to discuss all thoughts and feelings freely and without fear of judgment so that new associations can be made, and emotional isolation can be replaced with connection. When we understand and accept ourselves, growth and healing can occur! I create a safe space where individuals can first understand how their personal experiences have impacted their lives and then collaborate with clients in order to establish authentic insights that will shape their stories moving forward.

Are you exhausted and frustrated by feeling like you can’t live the life you want? And it seems like almost everyone expects you to do it all and be someone completely different than who you really want to show up as. Maybe you’ve been daydreaming about how it would feel for your relationships to be even a fraction better? But now, more than ever, you are feeling stuck, anxious, or hopeless about overcoming your different relationship stressors at work, with your kids, or even in bed.

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.
