Do you feel that you are surviving but you are not living life due to the pain that you have experienced? Often times we run away from the pain; we incorporate countless of ways to avoid it including through symptoms of anxiety , anxiety attacks, depression, substance, post-traumatic stress, adjustment disorders, anger, or any other means that will help us to not lean toward the pain. I often tell my clients, "You have to Feel in order to Heal," and this is where we take back our authentic power and we learn to thrive. Let me be the one to speak to that wounded part of YOU and allow me to say, you are able to HEAL!

My professional focus has been in helping others process trauma and overcome anxiety and depression that often develops as a result of a traumatic experience.
Beginning therapy can be a difficult and scary step for many of us. It is never too late or the wrong time to seek services that can help you through life’s many struggles. As a therapist my approach is person centered and focuses on the immediate needs of the client. My focus is to work collaboratively and alongside with you to help navigate and gain a better understanding of your emotions, past experiences, and most critical concerns. Our emotions can be strong and difficult to manage, in session we can focus on providing you the ability to practice emotion regulation, relaxation, mindfulness, and coping techniques.

Everyone struggles. We fight to get thru stress & problems. You may be there now or feel like it will happen. Like the rest of us, you may not let others in or show your emotional pain, but try to do the best you can to hold on daily. So there's nothing wrong with working on your own, yet it helps to let others in to unload the burden & pain you carry. Many of us fear to share our private pain, hurt feelings, or concerns stirring us emotionally. Anxiety is a normal part of talking to a therapist about your challenges. My goal is not to judge you but to aid you in your process of recovering to a balanced & healthy mind to live fully.

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.
