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.

Anxiety is an emotion that helps you know you are in a dangerous situation and is part of the Fight/Flight response. However, sometimes anxiety goes "haywire" and this "danger alarm" is triggered in situations that are not actually dangerous. With education and mastery of easy to learn skills you will be able to face and overcome your fears. I can help you live a freer 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.

Everyone feels anxiety at some point in their lives but when it starts to interfere with your life, counseling can help. Although anxiety can feel debilitating, it is treatable. People with anxiety don’t always share the same symptoms, they vary from person to person. Therapy will help you to reclaim your life and function in a chronically stressful world.

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 tends to feed on itself, and can hit you just when you can least handle it. It can become a vicious cycle. Talking with me about your anxiety or panic attacks may seem hard, but can actually give you some immediate relief. For that relief to last, you need to allow yourself time - both to understand what triggers you, and to practice thinking in a different way that will help you respond differently. This helps to break the vicious cycle, and begins to create a virtuous cycle so you can handle more and more situations with less anxiety, or with confidence rather than fear. I'll walk with you through this, listening, helping you take each step, giving practical suggestions.

Anxiety and stress are so prevalent in today's society. I can help you gather the tools you need to successfully handle those moments when you feel overwhelmed - even if those moments seem like they are all the time. I utilize psychodynamic and/or a cognitive behavioral approach to treating anxiety and stress. I also treat Obsessive Compulsive Disorder using Exposure and Response Prevention.
