I am trained in EMDR, which I have successfully used to release trauma and anxiety.
Would you like to embark on a deep exploration of what is most alive in you? I offer a psychotherapy process that includes body, mind and soul. Perhaps you are ready to finally move beyond the habits, patterns and addictions that keep you bound within a limited version of yourself. Let's resolve what is getting in the way. Maybe you need to grieve a loss or gain freedom from a traumatic experience that still impacts your day to day. I can help you. Or maybe you are ready to step more fully into your power and leadership. It's time.

I work with many people who are struggling with symptoms of anxiety and depression. These symptoms are often related to their current context or may be rooted in past experiences or issues. I support clients taking an active role in the therapy process; clarifying their goals is an important way of doing this. We will work together in moving toward achieving these goals. It's important to know that therapy is a process and sometimes significant change takes time.

My areas of work include loss and grief, trauma/PTSD, depression, anxiety, adjustment difficulties, parenting, and conflict resolution.
Congratulations on taking the first step in starting therapy. For over 20 years, I've enjoyed collaborating with adults, teens and their families to resolve conflicts, and foster more meaningful relationships. Anxiety and depression can cloud our ability to see ourselves and others in a positive light. Together we can challenge negative thinking that blocks goal attainment, regulate overwhelming emotions, and calm the body. In a safe environment we can explore new ways of thinking and being. I look forward to joining you on your journey

Contacting a therapist is a first courageous step toward: a) understanding yourself and making healthier choices; b) creating more loving relationships while handling conflict positively; and c) empowering yourself to work through symptoms (such as depression or anxiety) that keep you "stuck" – just waiting for your life to get going.
Are you at a crossroads in life? Maybe your job or relationship is not where it should be. Or are you new to the area or back on the dating market? I can help you navigate change to discover meaning and happiness in work and relationships. I start by honoring the strengths you already have, while you develop lost or hidden aspects of your self. My approach emphasizes the connections between your physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being – including the value of a good sense of humor. I will collaborate with you to develop an individualized treatment plan.

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.
