I also enjoy working with young adolescents as well as young adults addressing issues related to anxiety, depression, and relationship concerns. Working with a variety of age groups, including adults; allows me to maintain up to date clinical skills as well as having a better understanding to all life stages. Regardless of what difficulty you may be facing, the first step to change is the awareness that something doesn't feel right. This awareness is usually the first step to the possibility of change.

I have over 10 years of specialized experience, generally blending warmth, mindfulness, behavioral and phenomenological approaches in my work with individuals with mood, anxiety and trauma-related difficulties.
We are wired for growth, for healing, and for connection. All of us have an in-built, innate capacity to weather changes, recover from/with pain and loss, and find balance and meaning in our worlds amidst difficulty and change. And still, we can encounter real barriers to living in connection with our strengths. Sometimes habitual thoughts, painful emotions, ineffective patterns of behavior, or stressors, losses and traumas that we meet without the support or stability needed to move through - such challenges can leave us depleted and distrustful of our own capacity for well-being and connection.

Depression and anxiety are so very common and so little understood. I am interested in helping people come to terms with what is keeping them from living a contented life. Suffering is part of life. However, with compassion, empathy and understanding from an important other, it can be navigated successfully and dealt with in a way that allows growth. I want to help you get unstuck from the emotions, thoughts and behaviors that are keeping you unfulfilled. While this can be a lengthy process, it can be seen as a significant investment in yourself.

Many of my clients are referred for treatment of Adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and related symptoms, marital issues, as well as depression and anxiety. I frequently find that ADHD is an underpinning of other emotional, work and interpersonal issues, but has never been diagnosed. Clients often seek relief from "stress" without realizing the impact of ADHD on their lifestyle, choices etc., which often leads to that stress.

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.
