I specialize in anxiety and maternal mental health, with a belief that therapy should be collaborative and catered to each individual.
Society tells us the journey of pregnancy and motherhood should be a joyful time. While that is a wonderful thing to strive for, it might not happen as easily as we expect it to. Instead, it might end up being a very vulnerable time, filled with overwhelming stress, worry, sadness, or grief. Though these things would be completely normal to feel, they don’t have to stay that way. If you’re struggling with infertility, pregnancy, the transition to parenthood, or being a parent, please know I am here to help.

Life transitions, loss, relationships, isolation, low self-esteem, shame, anxiety , and procrastination can make you feel trapped in a cycle of pain. When emotions are raw, it's easy to feel like you have no control over your circumstances or the way that you feel. You may find yourself stuck in old patterns of thinking, feeling, or behaving, but are unsure of how to change. Let me offer you warmth and support while helping you discover that you do in fact have the power to feel differently. As your sense of agency grows, so does your ability to make choices that lead you to a life of joy and fulfillment.

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.
