I also treat anxiety , depression, relationship issues, and stress.
I am an empathic Psychologist who uses humor to speak about difficult topics. My goal is to help my clients reach their goals, whether that be increased insight, behavior change, or managing thoughts. I use a non-judgmental and supportive stance to help my clients feel more comfortable when speaking about issues that may make them feel vulnerable. At times, I can be irreverent and direct, which helps when we find ourselves avoiding what needs to be addressed. In addition to working with clients in my private practice, I'm also the the Associate Director of the Counseling Center at Iona College, a Division 1 athletics institution.

Therapy is a wonderful opportunity to gain a deeper sense of fulfillment in your life. By exploring and understanding your feelings, thoughts and behaviors you will begin to develop more self-awareness and self-acceptance. It is quite rewarding to better understand the many complicated and self-sabotaging part of yourself and gain more control over those behaviors. Developing insight allows you to have a greater understanding of who you are and the life choices you have made. Insight and self-awareness give you more freedom to make healthier choices and change unsatisfied areas of your life.

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.
