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.

Everyone experiences anxiety or stress in some from or another at some point in their lifetimes.

Anxiety and stress can be debilitating, affecting all areas of life--school, work and relationships especially. Anxiety and stress are internally self-perpetuating, and can lead to panic attacks or anxiety attacks. Panic and anxiety attacks are scary and can feel like you're dying, making someone feel hopeless and helpless. However, therapy can provide significant relief from anxiety and stress. Through the use of talk therapy, yoga and conscious breathing, art and sand tray therapy, and EMDR; relief is possible. Therapy can provide the relief you're looking for, so you can finally rest peacefully, live life confidently and fearlessly, and finally take a deep breath and breathe.

Cold sweats. Butterflies in the stomach. Avoidance. Sense of doom. Pounding heart. Racing and repetitive thoughts. Symptoms of anxiety are often overwhelming and leave us feeling powerless in their wake. Anxiety can feel like a thief of joy. In therapy, working both on the root causes and the symptoms themselves leads us toward a more fulfilling and peace-filled life.

We are not born with anxiety. Anxiety and stress are a learned way to cope with difficult situations, and they actually do not help the situation, they just make it worse. Medication treats the symptoms, and can be helpful, but it does not heal anything. I want to work with you to help discover what is the reason you react this way and others don't. We can explore how you learned this, and discover if there is indeed a better coping mechanism available to you.

We often go through our lives in a chronic state of anxiety. Often feeling overwhelmed by not knowing what it is we're even anxious about. I help clients identify the "why" behind their anxiety. Once we identify the why and other emotions present, we can identify what we need. Once we are able to work towards meeting that need, often our anxiety subsides. Learning to relate to our anxiety with compassion, is also a critical step in lowering and regulating symptoms of anxiety.
