I have extensive experience treating anxiety and depression, stress, trauma, and coping difficulties, including addictive behaviors.
It's not uncommon to feel overwhelmed and discouraged at various points in your life. You may be feeling anxious or depressed.

Perhaps you're confronting situations, challenges, losses or crises that you have not been able to resolve on your own. As a clinical psychologist, I can help you gain insight into the nature of your struggles, process difficult experiences, explore new possibilities and make meaningful changes that promote greater satisfaction in life.

Welcome! If you are motivated to decrease stress, pain and anxiety you have come to the right place. I am an occupational therapist with a clinical specialty in biofeedback. I teach people how to quiet their nervous system producing a calming effect. People learn how to relax muscles, breathe slower, lower their heart rate and blood pressure and warm their hands-all physical responses opposite to those we experience while under stress. Using sensors that pick up this information to feedback moment to moment changes people can see how they are doing and make remarkable changes in their behavior.

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.
