I have experience working with adults, adolescents, children and families who have experienced a variety of mental health issues including anxiety , depression, OCD, ADHD, and trauma.
It's normal to feel overwhelmed when trying to manage the expectations we set for ourselves and that others set for us. Given the busy nature of our lives, there is little time to process what these expectations mean to us and why they can cause us distress. Therapy can give space for life to slow down, to limit distractions, and to keep the judgments of others out. By engaging in the therapeutic process, we gain an understanding of our values and how they inform our behavior and emotional well-being.

Thank you visiting my page. Anxiety can have a paralyzing effect making it difficult to make choices or to live your life to the fullest. The constant doubt can be exhausting and confusing. While depression can convince us that we can't and that our future is hopeless. These feelings can lead us to get stuck in unhelpful patterns that are hard to stop. I provide a safe and nonjudgmental space to identify strategies you can use to break out of these self-defeating patterns so that you can live a more fulfilled 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.
