Specialty in Anxiety

Do you experience panic attacks? Do you find that

your mind races into the future worrying often?

Are you having trouble sleeping, or experiencing

intestinal distress? Is it hard for you to focus at home, work and / or school? Do you find it hard to express you needs and wants to the one that you love?  

If the answer is yes - I can help you in creating a life that is less anxious and worrisome. 


How could I help you?

  • Addressing important risk factors to improve overall long term success of your mental health as related to anxiety

  • Awareness of the need for tangible, emotional and informational support

  • Personally familiar with contributing factors that can result in panic / anxiety attacks 

  • Affirm for you how your anxiety is directly related to other areas of your life that you are presently struggling with

  • Acute awareness of physical discomfort, loss of previous lifestyle and potential change in social role, financial stress and / or an uncertain future

Benefits of working with a therapist who is familiar with anxiety:

  • You will feel less lonely, isolated or judged

  • You will gain a sense of empowerment

  • Improve your coping skills and sense of control

  • Able to speak openly and honestly about feelings

  • Reduce anxiety by identifying and resolving triggers directly related to your anxiety

What forms of intervention will be used:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) - combines learning to decrease negative, self defeating self talk with increasing healthy behaviors

  • Mindfulness - is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.

  • Controlled deep breathing to allow for more oxygen to your body and brain.  This is also a way to regain control of your present situation.

  • Marital / Family therapy - Helpful when marital or family conflict is directly contributing to anxiety or when your anxiety is affecting relationships

  • Identify and / or develop anxiety management techniques

  • Identification of family and social support who will be available to you outside of our sessions

  • Medication - I will refer you to your primary care physician and / or psychiatrist if clinically indicated that your anxiety would benefit from the additional support / intervention of medication
