In the journey of life, storms occur in our path that may throw us off course. Some of these challenges, transitions & adjustments can be difficult to navigate. Past storms can also keep us from moving forward in life. When feelings of stress and worry become overwhelming and are impacting daily life, it may be time to seek assistance. I believe in the capacity of every person to live a joy-filled, empowered life. I enjoy walking alongside my clients, for a time, to assist them in reclaiming their life.

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.

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.

Anxiety is an obstacle that keeps people from moving towards their goals and dreams. Anxiety hinders relationships, career opportunities, dreams, and keeps people from being successful. I believe in order to get through anxieties one must change their "yes but" language to "yes and" so that opportunities begin to present themselves. The biggest regrets in life are generally now what we have done, but what we didn't do. I believe it is never too late to do the next right thing. Using evidence based modalities of CBT, ACT, and DBT interventions, I can assist you in moving past the anxiety and back to the life you desire.
