Learn skills to stop anxiety before it morphs into panic attacks, clarify your values and goals, and deal with barriers that block your joy in life.
Sometimes, we find ourselves on an unfamiliar road and traveling towards a frightening future. We fear what may lie before us because the road is dark. Going back is not an option; going forward is strange and fearful. We feel stuck, lost, lonely--and hurting. If this is your experience, you don't have to navigate the journey alone. Sense the possibility of someone coming along side you who is gifted in the art of healing, someone skilled and compassionate.

I help clients heal from trauma, reduce anxiety , and enjoy healthier relationships.
Lately, you’ve felt overwhelmed by your emotions. When you try to make sense of things, your thoughts are impossible to organize. You know that your friends/family are concerned about you but you don’t know how to ask for support. And honestly, you’re scared to slow down- staying busy keeps the negative thoughts and difficult emotions away. You might be surrounded by people but you feel utterly alone. You’re trying not to burden others but you’re not sure how much longer you can avoid having a break down.

Although I will see anyone who is brave enough to seek help, my areas of focus are men's issues, stress, anxiety , depression, anger management, grief, loss, LGBTQIA+, and chronic pain.
Before I start, I want you to know that you are not broken beyond repair, you are not too damaged, and you seeking help says more about your strength than anything else. Being on Psychology Today is a massive first step, and even if it is not with me, I genuinely hope you continue to reach out to professionals on here to get the help you deserve. That being said, I offer online sessions for anyone in the state of Texas, as well as in-person sessions in Carrolton. My ideal client is anyone who is willing to be honest, genuine, and vulnerable about the struggles and concerns occurring in their life.

Unfortunately we live in a hectic and fast paced world. At times things can be overwhelming, often feeling negative and hopeless that change will ever occur. I have worked with clients struggling with depression, social anxiety , mood disorders and self-esteem issues sort out their own darkest and deepest moments. We all have bridges to cross and at times reaching out to a health care professional is the first step. Allow me to be that stepping stone for you.......

Are you struggling with anxiety , panic attacks and chronic depression? Have you suffered from traumatic relationships or experiences. My name is Shelley and it is my privilege to help trauma survivors get unstuck, feel better about themselves and start living again. It is my personal goal to help clients move through the feelings of overwhelm and anxiety allowing them to feel lighter and freer to explore new relationship with themselves and others.

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.
