Life is a wonderful, and at times difficult journey. When you experience anxiety , depression, trauma or relationship/family issues on top of the pressures of daily life, coping effectively can be overwhelming. Yet know that with the right support and toolbox of skills, you have the ability to prioritize your happiness and achieve your goals. Your journey to assemble this tool box does not have to happen alone. I can provide a nurturing space where you can gain insight into unwanted patterns of behavior, identify and challenge unhelpful automatic thinking patterns and get in touch with your innate strength.

Some of the problems I treat in individual psychotherapy include anxiety and stress, depression, grief and loss and the myriad challenges that come with any life transition. I currently focus my practice on working with adults, both individually and as couples. When working with couples I include practical information on exactly what the research has to say on what makes relationships succeed in general. I then focus on the deeper and more personal factors that that are helping or hindering a couple in finding their way to each other and to greater relationship satisfaction. I can help you live your life better.

I have experience working with the adolescent and adult populations in PHP/IOP levels of care along with clients in an outpatient setting, dealing with anxiety , depression, bipolar, addiction, personality disorders, and psychosis, to name a few.
Life can be hectic at times, and will lead us to prioritize anything and everything else before ourselves. There may be times where we feel lost and unsure of what to do. This can be an overwhelming feeling and may lead us to question who we are and what makes up our identity. By entering the journey that is therapy, you will be able to finally prioritize getting to know yourself; your likes and dislikes, triggers and strengths, as well as developing the wisdom to become A Better You.

Depression, anxiety and problems in relationships often cause deep anguish and pain, just getting by each day can be difficult. We often struggle in silence, believing things will never get better or that no one could understand. Well-meaning friends and family urge us to “just get over it”-but that often that makes us feel alone. I believe every person possesses the potential to transform their life. With the right support and ability to learn healthy coping skills, we will work together in a collaborative process to create the change you have been waiting for. Therapy is a place just for you, to be heard, validated and supported.

Hi! I’m Nicole and I am the therapist and founder of the Healing Place LLC. It’s a brave decision to start therapy. Life can be quite a journey, and our emotional responses to our personal experiences can impact our ability to think clearly, to communicate effectively, and to function adequately in our daily lives. If you have been feeling overwhelmed, sad, or just not yourself lately, then maybe this is something that you and I can talk about together. You are not alone on this journey and perhaps, I can help you.

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.
