I work with adults who have backgrounds of addiction, anxiety , and depression with a specialty in treating religious trauma.
Finding the right therapist who really gets you can be a challenge! I am happy to talk with you and discover together if we might be a good fit. In therapy we will look at the repetitive patterns that keep you stuck and with a moment-to-moment awareness of letting go of what holds you back from being who you want to be. This awareness naturally opens a new possibility for feeling and thinking differently. Starting therapy can be scary, but it is also a courageous step and something we do together. Whether you are new to therapy or returning after a break I can help you gain experiential insight to move in a new direction.

I've worked in the healthcare field for over 20 years, garnering extensive experience treating clients struggling with life transitions, depression, anxiety , and traumatic events.
Life challenges are a normal process. While they are personal and can often be transformative, some can be stressful. Psychotherapy may help you cope better with these changes. I respect the importance of creating and maintaining the therapeutic bond; helping clients discover and refine their personal strengths, identify appropriate goals, and work towards a path to wellness. It is important to have a mindful and empathetic listener, able to provide patience and understanding, and that is my personal responsibility if you wish to engage in this process.

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.
