Anxiety can be such a constant struggle. But . . . you do not have to be alone, isolated, and overwhelmed anymore. You can reenter a place of peace and confidence. Often a trauma, loss, or other tough season leads to anxiety and keeps you feeling unsettled and unsure even if that particular situation has passed. Mindsight/ mindfulness wheels are one area we will develop and make sure you go home with practical comforting tools to deal with anxious moments. Let's talk and find a new rhythm for you in this season.

We live in an ever-increasing anxious world, and for those who struggle with anxiety, I can help you put your anxiety in it's place. Anxiety and stress can be helpful, but only to a certain degree- and I want to help you lower your stress from a 9-10 to a 2-3. We will work together to create coping skills to immediately address the pressing stress. Then, I often use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) or Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to get to the root of what is triggering your anxiety. In the end, I want to give you the tools so you can handle any new stressor without fear.

Anxiety is a common struggle that we all face from time to time. However, for some, anxiety can become an all consuming, unshakeable force that threatens your ability to live with a sense of security and peace. If you are struggling with what seems to be uncontrollable moments of anxiousness, please hear that there is hope; you can once again, or sometimes for the first time, feel a sense of peace and direction for your life.

Anxiety is a real mental and physical reaction to the unconscious need for change. Panic and anxiety attacks are physical reflexes in response to psychological, physical and/or environmental conditions. Anxiety and panic are signals that strategies and coping skills are no longer working and change is needed. Overcoming anxiety is not about will power or anything you are doing wrong. It is a emotional and physical experience that often develops into learned coping skill, as maladaptive as it may be. You can understand how this happened and you can learn other way to be, to respond, to cope and more importantly to grow beyond it.

Anxiety and stress come up in so many different ways. From worries to full blown panic attacks, anxiety is not a simple thing to be dealing with. But in sessions with me, you will understand how to notice anxiety and deal with it in ways that free you to experiencing the rest of your life. If you find that you worry, therapy with me can help you work with the anxiety instead of against it.

Psychotherapist

Does worry interfere with your responsibilities or daily life, disrupting normal activities, causing you to miss social events? Does it seem like you can’t stop your mind from racing as you worry about all kinds of things and often expect the worst? If you answered yes, you may be suffering from generalized anxiety. It may seem like your worries are coming from the outside, people and events that are causing you stress. In fact, your worrying may actually be self-generated from your own internal dialog running in the background. I will help you calm down and learn to override the negative thoughts while teaching you valuable self-soothing techniques, bringing peace back to your life.

Relational Psychotherapist / Counselor

You have this shortness of breath, your heart is racing and your foot won't stop tapping. You can't sit still and you really just want to get up and leave the room. You have hives that are unexplained and this irritating cough that just won't go away. You find yourself yelling at the person in the car in front of you, and you don't understand your kids. Anxiety takes on more forms than we can fully know or understand. Yet when you begin to talk about it, any of it, all of it, your story, your life in general, with someone who is trained to listen and to help see into your life, all of a sudden, the cough lessens, the yelling softens, the hives disappear, and life begins to make more sense.

I know it takes courage to ask for help, so I honor your ability to let me collaborate with you as you find your way to better living.
