I have significant experience assisting individuals with various types of anxiety, mood issues, trauma, and LGBTQ+ concerns.
Sometimes even just the idea of change can be overwhelming. By nature as humans, we tend to gravitate towards what is familiar out of a sense of comfort, whether this supports personal growth or hinders it. For this reason, I recognize that change is a gradual process and respect the importance of meeting my clients wherever they currently may be in this process. It takes an admirable amount of courage to be willing to explore and uncover specific thoughts and behaviors that may be preventing us from attaining true happiness and fulfillment in our lives.

My professional interests include working with individuals who have faced traumatic experiences of any nature; symptoms of anxiety and depression; difficulties stemming from troubled relationships and complicated family dynamics; bereavement; perinatal issues; and cultural issues.
Every individual’s motivation for seeking therapy is unique. I am sensitive to the specific goals that an individual has for the treatment, and frame recommendations accordingly. For some, therapy may involve a few, brief targeted consultations, while others may choose to engage in a longer term treatment. Regardless of the duration of treatment, I view the therapeutic relationship as providing the scaffolding to achieve one’s full potential, and resolve symptoms which often arise out of unresolved conflicts and anxieties.

I have experience working with individuals across the life span who present with a wide range of difficulties, including everyday job and life stress, anxiety and depression, relationship problems and substance abuse, and characterological problems.
People often seek therapy at a point where life feels too stressful or off-kilter. This point might emerge gradually or occur in the face of acute problems, stressors or losses that feel overwhelming. Effective therapy requires commitment and engagement on both the part of the therapist and patient and often involves exploring parts of oneself and one’s life that feel elusive or painful. The pursuit of change and growth can take time, however there is a remarkable payoff to effective treatment, which can include greater freedom and satisfaction in the areas of love and intimacy, family and relationships, creativity and work.

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.
