In the past decades we have learned so much about the way our brains and bodies work together in order to help us survive. We are hard-wired to feel and react to threatening events in our environment - it tells us we are in danger. These thoughts, along with the accompanying feelings, can become overwhelming if we obsess on them without finding possible safeguards or solutions. Psychotherapy can help by identifying stressors and anxieties, helping you understand how you are thinking about problems, adapting to certain situations, managing the emotions related the related emotions, and working on self-care (sleep, nutrition, exercise, medical treatment of anxiety disorders).

My primary area of expertise is the treatment of Anxiety Disorders. There are different anxiety disorders such as Panic Disorder, Agoraphobia, Social Anxiety Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Specific Phobia, PTSD and more. My therapeutic approach for the treatment of anxiety consists of: educating my client about their specific anxiety, teaching coping mechanisms to reduce stress/anxious mood, learning to interrupt the development of anxiety that leads to unpleasant physical manifestation and confronting behaviors and thoughts that maintain ongoing anxiety. It is imperative to work on my client's issues that perpetuates anxiety and distress.

I handle anxiety and stress in many ways but a few ways are through TRAUMA counseling, I can use EMDR which is a way to handle almost any trauma, Brain Spotting, or Havening Touch. All these methods are gentle and can be used on children as well. I also love the 12 step models for using good boundaries and just sometimes learning how to say NO. I was trained by Pia Melody, a master in teaching her CoDependence method. I have also used Hypnosis in the past and can easily use Visualization for my clients. I always give homework for my clients to continue the work at home. Many clients don't know that after they leave my office their therapy keeps on working and may manifest in change!

Anxiety and stress are a part of our every day existence. It is when anxiety and stress become unmanageable that we need tools to help us cope. By providing a safe environment and teaching anxiety and stress reducing techniques, I have seen clients greatly improve the quality of their lives. When these simple techniques are used, they enable you to have more of an ability to think clearly and make better decisions for yourself.

Everyone can feel some level of anxiety once in a while. But overwhelming, recurring, or "out of nowhere" fear can deeply impact people. Sometimes anxiety can cause fatigue, irritability, difficulty focusing, sleep problems and muscle tension. When anxiety interferes like this, therapy can really help. Together, we will figure out the most troublesome issues, develop a treatment plan, and tackle the goals at a comfortable pace. I utilize cognitive-behavioral therapy, but also incorporate other modalities when helpful (i.e. exposure therapy, systematic desensitization, relaxation).

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!

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Available for Online Therapy

Over the course of time, a client may start to experience increased anxiety and find themselves beginning to become more and more tentative as they approach their relationships and personal and professional goals. I provide a comprehensive assessment, that takes into account biopsychosocial (biological, psychological and social) areas of life, and together we are able to develop a holistic and integrative plan that is adjusted to the client's changing life circumstances. When clients redesign their approach to life, they have greater insight, are transformed, and better skilled to attain a higher degree of life satisfaction.

Do you relate to any of these thoughts or beliefs? I can’t do it. It’s too overwhelming. I feel stuck. It’s too hard. I feel crazy/I’m going crazy. I can’t get it right! What’s wrong with me?! What’s the point?? I’ve worked with a lot of women, and I hear these words all the time. It may seem like you’re alone right now, but you are so NOT. As women we’re quick to feel isolated---like there’s something wrong with us. I’m here to help you see you’re not alone. You’re not crazy. When we feel stuck, we start believe there’s no hope. Knowing something is off is incredibly powerful! It allows you to move towards change. You don’t have to stay stuck and there is HOPE for you. I can help!

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.

Stress or anxiety don’t always get in the way, but sometimes they do. Learn to identify the sources, recognize how they stop you, and change the impact they have on you and your life. Learn how old patterns shape your self-image, self-esteem, and expectations, and discover new ways of dealing with that. Fear doesn’t have to stop you from having what you want in life. And, sometimes it’s a valuable asset, like knowing which is the lion and which is the lamb. Psychotherapy with me helps you to sort out when to listen to the fears and when they no longer apply. You’ll also learn coping strategies that can help when you’re caught up in the fear. Your fears don’t have to control you.

Stress and anxiety are often the root causes leading to unhealthy coping mechanisms such as addiction and eating disorders. By evaluating triggers for stress and/or anxiety and developing healthy coping strategies (often with cognitive behavioral interventions), patients learn to self regulate and experience significant mood improvement. When necessary, referrals for medications are made as an adjunct to psychotherapy.
