Our most common response to anxiety is to try to push it away or to avoid it. But imagine that I give you this simple instruction: don't think about chocolate cake. What happens? You probably think about chocolate cake. Paradoxically, the harder we try to not think about or not experience anxiety, the more anxiety we experience. Therefore, to treat anxiety we take steps to make room for the anxiety. When we can become willing to experience anxiety, we usually have less anxiety and we are free to live our lives.

Our brains are designed to fight or flight in scary life threatening situations. However, sometimes what our brains think is scary is actually irrational and we end up with avoidant behaviors, low self esteem, and poor boundaries because it's scary to confront situations head on. My psychotherapy sessions begin with identifying triggers to the anxiety, current negative coping skills that you utilize to manage the symptoms, and identifying the thoughts and feelings attributed to the anxiety so we can work together to change thought processes and create positive skills to sustainably manage anxiety.

If you are feeling tortured by anxiety symptoms such as panic attacks, obsessive thoughts and worrying, or being overwhelmed by stress, you may feel that you can do nothing to change it. However, this is not true. You can recover from anxiety with the right type of therapy. I provide help for anxiety using the most effective techniques, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Therapy, or Hypnotherapy to address conditions such as Panic Disorder and panic attacks, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, constant worry, social anxiety and fear of public speaking, and overwhelming stress. With support and encouragement, we will work together to develop a plan to decrease your anxiety.
