Hi, I'm Jessica! I help folx with ADHD in adulthood better understand themselves, find a sense of peace, and thrive. I know living with ADHD can be challenging, do any of these sound familiar? You’re a people-pleaser and struggle to advocate for yourself. You seem to have it “all together” from the outside but internally are struggling with anxiety, loneliness, self-doubt, or burnout. You struggle with procrastination, keeping track of all the tasks on your plate, leading to overwhelm. You feel like no one quite fully understands you. It feels like it’s so much easier for everyone else to accomplish goals.

We all face challenges in life, but sometimes we get stuck, overwhelmed, or notice repeating patterns that negatively affect our relationships, work, and our overall health. I work with women who feel anxious, worried, lonely, sad, not good enough, or confused about what to do next. My clients struggle with self-esteem, anxiety, hurtful relationships, family issues, difficult transitions, trauma and many other life challenges. Most women I see are looking to build confidence, become empowered to make changes, break unhealthy patterns and form healthier relationships. Counseling can be a great resource we can use to heal and grow.

Are you tired of being stuck in a pattern of thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding you back from being who you want to be? Is anxiety, depression, or intrusive thoughts stopping you? I work with clients in a multitude of ways.
Accepting new clients. "While we all move through similar spectrums of emotions and experience similar battles with attachment and old patterns, we all have unique conditioning that sets us apart from each other. No two people have traveled the same journey. And we each have our own emotional history that we have to traverse when we start our healing. Since each individual has their own conditioning, how one person heals is not how all people heal." (Yung Pueblo, Lighter 2022) As a therapist, I hope to create and hold a place where clients can feel safe to do the work they desire to move closer to the life they would like to live.

As a therapist I believe in a strengths-based approach to counseling in which growth comes from a person's own values, goals, and desire to implement impactful changes in their lives. I also encourage a collaborative approach to therapy – I am simply a guide who has developed an expertise in supporting the goals of my clients or helping them develop goals which feel personally meaningful. Through identity exploration and development, values building, and symptom reduction, my goal is to lend support to an individual's growing sense of competence, confidence, and empowerment.

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.
