Over the course of time, a client may start to experience increased anxiety and find themselves beginning to become more and more tentative as they approach their relationships and personal and professional goals. I provide a comprehensive assessment, that takes into account biopsychosocial (biological, psychological and social) areas of life, and together we are able to develop a holistic and integrative plan that is adjusted to the client's changing life circumstances. When clients redesign their approach to life, they have greater insight, are transformed, and better skilled to attain a higher degree of life satisfaction.

Anxiety can be debilitating, especially if you have panic attacks. It can feel like and assault on your senses and makes you want to flee to safety. I liken it to feeling as if a lion had walked into the room. Your brain tells you there is danger and you must fight or flee. For those who suffer from anxiety medication can help but there are also ways that you can learn to manage and control it. I try to help my patients to understand the universalized thoughts and feelings that feed the anxious beats and to learn techniques that will improve the quality of their lives.

Stress and anxiety feel bigger in isolation. Therapy can help identify the source of stress, what triggers stress reactions, fears and worries, negative thought patterns, and how to manage and cope with stressors in positive ways. If you or your child / adolescent are overwhelmed with stress and are experiencing increased anxiety then I would like to help.

We live in stressful times and many people struggle with anxiety that can range from simple daily worry to debilitating fear. Identifying the triggers underlying anxiety, big or small, can help you develop strategies for dealing with the thought patterns and fixed beliefs that are preventing you from living life to the fullest. As we begin to process your anxiety together, we may find that it is caused by past trauma or events in your family history. Developing skills to cope with immediate anxiety, while slowly working through past trauma or family issues can help to decrease the experience of anxiety in daily living, as well as in your life, overall.

My approach to the treatment of anxiety is to use the most effective intervention strategies possible. My treatment for anxiety (including panic disorder and OCD) utilizes exposure therapy, which works by helping a person confront a specific fear or memory while in a safe and supportive environment. The main goals of exposure therapy are to help my clients learn that by stopping the avoidance of what they fear, they actually become MORE comfortable and can reduce their anxiety to a substantial degree - all of which opens doors of hope and increases the potential to reach your desired goals with an improved quality of life.

Everyone experiences anxiety at some point, but for some the anxiety is so frequent or intense that it interferes with their lives or even triggers panic attacks. I use Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to help my clients get a sense of control over their own anxiety. We collaborate to learn skills to reduce the frequency or intensity of the anxious feelings, to tolerate the anxiety when it does occur so they can still function through it, and to practice habits that reduce stress and improve general mental health.

Suffering from anxiety and stress is one of the leading reasons why people seek therapy. In a supportive, non-judgmental relationship, I will help you to explore and recognize the sources of your worries. As we work together we will identify unconscious thoughts and feelings, make connections between past and present, and you will gain increased clarity and understanding of what gets in the way of your enjoyment and sense of peace. I have helped many clients to progress from a sense of overwhelm and stress to a sense of tranquility and centeredness. I look forward to hearing from you and to accompanying you on this journey.

Anxiety can leave many clients feeling completely powerless. I would empower clients to take control of their anxiety by separating themselves from their anxiety and working towards their preferred relationship with anxiety. I would encourage clients to use mindfulness to decrease their anxiety by focusing on the present moment, acknowledging their anxiety, and accepting that their anxiety will not last forever.

I work with many patients who are struggling with anxiety and stress, whether it is due to relationship or life pressures, difficult family dynamics, or long-term individual anxiety that is preventing them from experiencing life in a freer, stronger, more peaceful and productive manner. We work together to determine the underlying causes that have produced (or may be continuing to provoke) their anxiety; then we focus on ways to see their lives and their problems more clearly, giving them more ability to have realistic expectations & more impact on their life situations. I help them find (and practice) concrete ways to reduce stress in their lives, increasing strength and lessening anxiety.

Depending on the diagnosis, symptoms and severity, we will come up with a treatment plan that would be most effective for you. All treatment plans will include relaxation techniques and learning ways to manage those "what if" thoughts.

My clients benefit from a mindfulness approach to managing anxiety and stress. I have extensive experience working with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and victims of crime and early childhood trauma including physical and sexual abuse. Through processing trauma in the psychotherapeutic process and learning to implement mindfulness techniques like meditation, progressive muscle relaxation, and the Emotional Freedom Technique, clients learn skills that are both meaningful, practical, and effective in reducing stress and anxiety.
