I have training to work with children, adolescents, and adults with a wide range of concerns including stress, anxiety , depression, suicidal thoughts, self-esteem, and relationship problems.
Life gets tough sometimes and everyone needs a little help. Sometimes that help comes from friends or family, but other times that help can come from a professional. Reaching out to a counselor is tough but frequently can be the first step towards improvement in life. It is important to find a counselor with whom you feel comfortable enough to do the tough work and talk about the hard issues. I enjoy learning whether that is from formal training and classwork or from the people I work with. I consider therapy a collaborative experience where we learn from each other.

As we go through life it can become very challenging, overwhelming, and even scary. Sometimes we need emotional support to get us through the mishaps and worries of life. There is hope for our issues and problems we face. Working together we can bring about a connection of your thoughts, feelings, and behavior and help you understand your ability to bring peace and joy to your life. Sometimes change is hard but it takes strength and determination from you to make those changes. It takes courage to want to change and ask for help.

Wouldn't it be nice to turn down the voice in your head, to not have to deal with its constant criticism and attack? It keeps ruining things: putting you down, telling you you're not good enough, making you second guess everything you do. Then the spiral starts. It's your fault, all your fault, and your relationships suffer because of... you. Yep, there's definitely something wrong with you, the voice says. You don't have problems. You ARE the problem. If this sounds familiar and you're tired of fighting yourself, we should talk.

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.
