Important update: "Deconstructing Anxiety " has recently been voted one of the top 15 books on Anxiety by a panel of mental health professionals! Take a look at Dr. Pressman's website (www.toddpressman.com) to find out why people have called the program "Seriously life changing", "Truly profound" and "One of the most exciting things to come along in the field". Built on the understanding that there is a single "core fear" at the root of all suffering (including depression, relationship struggles, etc., as well as anxiety ), this program is designed to help you transform your core fear into a deep and lasting fulfillment.

I have 23 years of training and experience working with adults who struggle with low self-esteem, imposter syndrome, anxiety , depression, bipolar, and anger. I'm also very experienced with clients working on transitions such as going to college, new job, marriage, starting a family, a divorce, or coping with a past or recent trauma. I've worked for many years in drug treatment too. I think clients are looking for a way to gain insight and awareness of how challenges effect their thinking, and want to learn new skills to improve how they feel and function in the world.

I treat a wide range of difficulties, including depression, stress, anxiety and life transitions.
I believe that a clear, focused, relaxed and lucid mind is the best instrument for self-discovery and healing. Using a combination of meditation, mindfulness and cognitive methods, I help individuals to attain deep inner awareness of one's mind and body and deep outer awareness of the external world. I believe that the resolution of many of life's problems becomes apparent when we open our minds to our own unrecognized thoughts, feelings, and sensations. I believe that contentment can arise only as a result of a basic honesty and acceptance of oneself.

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.
