Stress is an inevitable part of modern life. Anxiety seems to be part of this same package, but does it have to be? Anxiety is the uncomfortable and often intolerable gap between where we are and where we want to be. It can run everything and ruin everything. The where-we-are that anxiety so painfully stretches away from is usually our difficult-to-be-with internal emotional reality involving hurt, shame, anger or fear. Learning to be with ourselves and find release usually requires the help of someone who is intuitive, warm, sensitive and familiar with the terrain of emotions. This is what I do. This is my everyday work. Let me help you.

I work with clients using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness, Narrative Therapy, Expressive Arts, and psychoeducation to address anxiety and stress. Many folks are experiencing extreme stress as a result of all we have experienced in the last year. I'm able to work with clients experiencing burnout, increased anxiety, and higher stress relying on neuroscience as the guide.

Anxiety and fear are primal emotions that under ideal circumstances help prepare you to face danger trhough fleeing or fighting if trapped. However, when anxiety is triggerred too easily the protective function is lost and you are at risk for developing anxiety disorders like social anxiety, panic, phobias, chronic worry, and PTSD. Once an anxiety disorder has developed it is maintained in a vicious cycle of fear and avoidance. I help people break this cycle by learning to deescalate their anxiety response and gradually confront, rather then avoid, their fears. People who have experience trauma growing up may also have anxiety in the form of PTSD. I have special training to help you.

Anxiety and stress are common in our modern lives. Much of it is often how we are being impacted by the larger cultural and socioeconomic forces around us. I will help you identify exactly where and how you're getting stuck and the ways you're relating to the challenges in your life. We will explore the thoughts, fears, trauma, relational issues, and challenges that could be contributing to your anxiety and stress. I believe that feeling connected and being seen are the foundation of helping you get well. From here, we can work on tools to reduce anxiety and stress.

Your Higher Self is your wise inner nurturer who is your guiding light. Your ego on the other hand, is the part of you that gives you "monkey mind"- the thoughts that are fearful, stuck on angry, or judgmental. Neuroscience research has proven that our thoughts and assumptions actually create our reality. Anxiety is an SOS from our soul that we need to heal a core wound and a resulting negative pattern of negative thinking that is creating a negative reality for us. In spite of what appears possible, you can create anything you desire to happen in your life. This is the evolution of humanity that we are all awakening to. To learn more you can watch my YouTube video on Manifesting.

If you're struggling with racing thoughts, wanting things to be perfect and feeling frustrated when they and you are not, worrying about the future, worrying about the past, picking behavior (picking skin at lips, at fingers, etc...), feeling of panic and anything else that feels related to anxiety or stress, I can help. Anxiety is something that can propel us to do great things, but in excess it can severely limit us, make us doubt, and make us lose that spark that we bring into the world. I use ACT and other meditative/mindfulness techniques to drop the struggle with perfection, and embrace the unique talents you bring to the world. We'll let the anxieties rest, so you can shine.

Anxiety and stress are two words that often go hand in hand. They can creep into our waking hours and haunt the evenings when we need to go to sleep. Together, you and I will come up with a plan for both waking hours and for nighttime if needed. We will develop coping skills you can use in the real world and some for when you have more time on your hands. Anxiety doesn't need to consume you and doesn't need to rob you of the good things in life such as being with people or saying yes to activities.
