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.

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. Sometimes, anxiety is a response to difficult, real-life stressors and other times it is a response to stressors from your past. Either way, therapy is an effective way to combat anxiety. You don't have to suffer.

Anxiety and stress have a powerful presence in modern life, intricately woven into the fabric of our days. Pressure to perform optimally dictates our personal and professional arenas, and yet we blame ourselves for how anxiety has it's way with us. Productivity is a rampant and influential player in how we measure ourselves, and the self help movement proclaims there is always room for improvement. How do we find leverage over anxiety and stress? How do we carve a place for ourselves despite it? These are some of the questions that are important to explore in order to better understand the phenomenon of anxiety and stress that is permeating our lives.

You might be longing for change that can bring some sense of peace to the anxiety and stress you carry daily but are afraid of the unpredictable and the unknown and find yourself moving aimlessly from one distraction to another. The relationship between therapist and patient has a context, a sharing of subjective experiences that cannot help but play out in unique and meaningful ways. Because every human being and each individual's process is unique, I won't put you through a series of pre-determined exercises or fit you into some theoretical model. I work in collaboration with you to explore and discover the context of your anxiety thereby helping you to manage it more productively.

Anxiety/stress can be debilitating and make life feel unmanageable. Many times people with anxiety want to get better, but don't know how. That's where a good therapist can help! My training, background, and experience can provide those suffering from anxiety the necessary tools and strategies to help improve coping skills and return to stable and healthy functioning. Sometimes it can feel overwhelming to face these challenges, but that is why I focus on taking baby steps, taking it one day at a time, and putting one foot in front of the other, and providing a lot of support and understanding. I have witnessed many clients improve and successfully decrease their anxiety. There is hope!

I specialize in anxiety, fear, worry, and stress. My motto is "manage your life not your anxiety" because too many people spend their lives trying to work around their fears, distract from their anxiety, and avoid scary body sensations. I understand because I was affected by an anxiety disorder that controlled my life for many years. Today, I am helping others get their lives back and start experiencing joy and calmness.

Being stressed out may be the most commonly used saying in America. How do we keep up with all that our lives have become? So many people do not take the time they need for themselves for so many reasons. This causes a tremendous overload to their emotional well being. It is critical that you evaluate stress in your life and look for ways to decrease it and develop or utilize appropriate outlets to deal with it. Males more than females tend to hold onto their stress and not partake in activities that may give the kind of stress relief needed to maintain a stress free life style. Obviously some moderate amount of stress in our lives is good because it is what drives us to fulfill our r

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.

It takes an act of courage for sensitive young adults to learn to trust and believe in themselves. It takes self-awareness for them to learn to speak their truth. I help sensitive young adults to develop the self-love necessary to fully accept themselves. Ultimately, the key to living a peaceful life lies in knowing who you are and what you feel. I help young people stand strong in what is true for them. I help my clients learn to not waste their time looking to others for approval. Through our work together, I help young people to discover their authentic self-expression and embark on the journey of the dream for their life.

Anxiety is an inability to be fully relaxed. It is mental and physical tension. Many things cause it and many things perpetuate it. Not all anxiety is bad or needs to be extinguished. I work with the client to understand the meaning of their anxiety. I find sometimes people are not consciously aware of the real reasons they cannot feel relaxed. Enlisting the client's sense of curiosity about their own thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations I aim to identify their symptoms of anxiety and the origins of them. I utilize cognitive behavioral and mindfulness strategies to identify and replace unhelpful thoughts with more productive ones.
