Are you worrying about life on a daily basis? Do you constantly feel on edge, have difficulty falling or staying asleep? Together, we will work to reduce your overall, level, frequency and intensity of anxiety, as well as stabilizing your anxiety level so that you can increase your ability to function on a daily basis. We will do this by identifying what has happened or is currently happening in your life that forms the basis for your present anxiety.

If you are struggling with feelings of anxiety or depression a wonderful tool is to learn about Mindfulness Meditation. Once you learn the simple steps, you can practice a little as five or ten minutes daily and see the results immediately. Mindfulness Meditation is easy to learn, has no side effects and is very cost effective. You can use it as a tool for stress management or for deepening your spiritual growth and practice. There is no right or wrong way. You take what works for you and apply it to your life.

I find that the most important part of working with anxiety and stress is to work with creating a safe environment to explore and work on these feelings together. This is an important goal. Without safety, and a feeling of genuine and concern and compassion for you, I do not think we will be able to get very far. From here learning to approach, tolerate and understand what makes you anxious and stressed out, the things you avoid talking about and are fearful about being overwhelmed by are the things I want to help you master. So much of anxiety is feeling smaller than what we are up against. Getting confidence in yourself and coping effectively with your anxiety is what I will help you do.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

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.

Anxiety and stress can be caused by many things; job challenges, marital discord, family crisis and financial difficulties to name a few. I first try to determine i this anxiety can be lifted through problem solving. Sometimes just talking through an issue with an objective listener is helpful. For deeper issues I work on incorporating stress reduction into your daily life in a way that is helpful and do-able. Depending on the level of stress, I may refer you for medication if you want it. I have many ways of working with stress and anxiety and use what works with each patient.

Anxiety and stress are often difficult to assess and even more difficult to overcome. In a caring and compassionate setting, I work with clients to develop insights regarding the sources of anxiety and the nature of patterns contributing to stress. With deep understanding of the ways in which stress and anxiety are operating, we can create strategies of dealing with both.
