Sometimes things go sideways despite your best planning. And unfortunately, nothing can protect you from that. Anxious about this lack of control is pretty normal even if its all you think of. What if you could get back all the time you spend avoiding, worrying, planning, etc.? What would you do? My approach is to help you live in the midst of struggle and get a life you really want.

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.

Anxiety and stress can have a huge impact on not only your mental health, but also your physical health (sleep, appetite), your relationships with others and your regular activities of daily life.

Anxiety is an emotion about expectations, perfectionism and looking to the future. We hold anxiety in our bodies; we develop anxious behaviors and often disorders develop which involve panic. We can get caught up in the beliefs driven by society of pursuing happiness externally. Anxiety comes in many forms manifested from the conditioned belief of “not being good enough and seeking that place, the place of outer validation and acceptance.” Sometimes our beliefs are only habits and we think without them we would not know how to be in the world. To let go of these old beliefs would be frightening. Our first step is self-compassion. Compassion reminds us that we do belong, as surely as we have been lost in obtaining approval from others rather than...(view profile to read more)

Anxiety and stress is one of the most common reasons for seeking therapy. Anxiety can be triggered in many ways and therefore, it can manifest and impact us in many ways. Living anywhere, especially in a large city such as Los Angeles, can create day-to-day stress, which then has the potential to impact one’s anxiety. Anxiety and stress can also impact one’s sexual needs, as well as be a result of such issues. Goals that target both anxiety and stress can be achieved with the right therapist by your side. I appreciate you trusting your therapeutic needs with me.

Much like depression, anxiety and stress is something we all deal with at some point in our lives. Anxiety, in and of itself, is not a bad thing. In fact, some anxiety is not only healthy, but necessary for us to get things done. Without some anxiety, we lack motivation to take action. However, anxiety can become problematic when it overwhelms and paralyzes us. Therapy helps by giving us a space to learn skills to better manage the anxiety and no longer feel gripped by it. I use a holistic/mindful approach consisting of connecting the mind, body, and the environment (incorporating all 5 senses) to live fully in the present moment with respect and compassion for ourselves.

One of the most effective treatments for anxiety is EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) which was developed about 30 years ago. The most common anxiety disorders are specific phobias. Other anxiety disorders include social anxiety disorder, panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I will help you find the root cause of the anxiety and process the memory that feeds the current symptoms of worry and fear.

At its core, anxiety and stress is fear. A stressed or anxious person might not think of it as the feeling of fear, but fear is what drives a person to worry and tense up. My clients have frequently told me how they cannot help it, that life just piles heavy responsibilities and problems onto their shoulders. This is true, that life hands us unthinkable challenges. That is exactly why you cannot afford to let anxiety and fear take over your mind--fear and worry cannot solve a single thing, but give you emotional suffering. I know how to help you better manage your stress and anxiety. Therapy does not take your problem away, but it helps you gain control over your stress and anxiety.

The benefits of therapy for people who suffer from anxiety are the reduction of symptoms, and the development of greater well-being. Anxiety is a kind of friction among the moving parts of the self, an internal conflict that is distracting, depleting, and highly unpleasant. It is closely linked to stress, to boredom, and to fear of sadness. Rather than struggling, we can collaborate to turn toward the source of the anxiety and try to resolve it at the roots.
