You don’t have to face your anxiety alone
We all know that a certain amount of anxiety is an inescapable part of normal living. For whatever reason, anxious thoughts can come and then they go. We deal with this anxiety as best we can, and then we return to our normal state.
Anxiety is a problem if feelings of tension or worry become excessive, pervasive, and persistent. Anxiety can wrap itself into feelings of fear, doubt, worry, guilt, and shame that can feel overwhelming and almost impossible to shake.
When anxiety reaches this level, it can drastically impair the ability to enjoy life.
If you are experiencing anxiety, you deserve support. In therapy, I can help you find the origins of your anxiety, and discover why you have this driving force inside of you causing you to feel unsettled so much of the time.

How do I know I if need help with my anxiety?
If your anxiety has become persistent, pervasive, or consuming, then you need help.
When someone works with me to address their anxiety, I know they have been working to overcome it on their own for a long time. They have tried it all: exercise, positive thinking, meditation, breathwork, self-help books, taking breaks, or simply trying to distract themselves. While these things can provide temporary relief, they simply aren’t adequate to fully address persistent or consuming anxiety.
What is Anxiety?
Sometimes anxiety can feel like a way of life. Even without a particular stressor, anxiety may feel like it follows you around. Anxiety is a pervasive and repetitive worry that causes anxious thoughts that feel overwhelming or consuming. While it is natural to feel worried, nervous, or upset sometimes, this level of feeling can be so powerful that you are unable to focus on anything else.
Sometimes anxiety is a reaction to a particular event. Something happens and we then feel apprehension, insecurity, fear, doubt, or dread. Anxiety feels organic, as though it matches the experience we’ve had exactly. And yet, an anxious reaction is a magnified one; it grips you and draws you in. Therapy can help you feel calm enough in the face of stress to react effectively.
Here are some of the most common questions I hear about anxiety:
