Anxiety and stress are correlated with depression and frequently they co-occur. I can help people relax and lower their anxiety with EMDR and supportive counseling. I can also refer them for medications. Many times anxiety is a symptom of deeper unresolved issues which can be addressed psychotherapeuticly.Again EMDR can be used to help create a "safe place" to go too. It can also be teated with cognitive behavioral psychology as sometimes "distorted thinking" is involved.

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 is an intruder! It interferes in an individual's daily life and interpersonal relationships. My approach to anxiety is straightforward: "Either you manage anxiety or it will manage you." The good news is that with knowledge about anxiety and the right tools you can manage this intruder. I teach my clients about the two primary responses to anxiety (one good and the other not good) and give them the strategies and management tools they need to keep this intruder from ruling their thoughts, feelings and behaviors.

I help my clients identify where their anxiety and stress is stemming from. Not what triggers it, but what ideas about themselves and the world causes them to respond to triggers with anxiety and stress. After identifying the causes of these uncomfortable feelings, we can find ways to be present and aware of when this comes up and learn to accept and manage it in the moment.

I have a particular interest in treating anxiety disorders including OCD, generalized anxiety, specific phobia, panic disorder, health anxiety and separation anxiety. I recognize that anxiety often manifests with physical symptoms which can be exhausting and in some cases feel overwhelming and isolating. Understanding and treating the underlying cause of the anxiety can eliminate the symptoms and dramatically improve quality of life.

I teach clients tools they can use to deal with their anxiety and stress. Some of these tools are from Dialetical Behavioral Therapy(DBT). I also offer tools I've gotten from other sources. In addition, I do relaxation exercises with clients, mainly guided imagery. Clients will often find meditation, which I can teach them, helpful as well. Sometimes, the cause of clients' anxiety and stress is rooted in past experiences(and, at times, trauma)that continue to run their lives. In this case, EMDR(Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)is quite effective and clients notice a great improvement in their symptoms.

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist

Consistent worry, fear and a feeling of being unsafe or unsettled can have a serious impact on relationships, work and self-esteem. Stress slowly diminishes are ability to live a full and engaged life and is often difficult to control on one's own when it has spiraled to unmanageable levels. My work with mindfulness and meditation, on a personal and professional level, has led me to believe that it is very effective for teaching us how to successfully walk through a world that is becoming increasingly hectic and often overwhelming. We will work together to recognize what patterns in the mind/body can be eliminated to leave room for joy and ease to enter into daily life.

I work with many children, teenagers, and young adults who manage varying levels of anxiety. In the pediatric population anxiety comes out in a variety of ways including social anxiety, test anxiety, school refusal, panic attacks, and constant worries. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an evidenced based intervention that I adapt for pediatric clients to help them overcome anxiety. If your child lives in a constant state of fear that something terrible will happen, don't delay another day, call to set up an appointment and start your child on the road to reducing anxiety.
