Therapy for Anxiety

If you find yourself feeling frequently overwhelmed, confused and stressed, therapy for anxiety may be helpful for you.  Anxiety is an extremely common phenomenon that most people have experienced at some point in their lives.  In fact, some amount of anxiety can be helpful (and healthy) in motivating you to start your day, complete a task or maintain your relationships.  However, sometimes this experience of time-to-time anxiety can expand to feel overwhelming, all-consuming or difficult to escape.  I'm here to help.

  • Difficulty turning your brain "off"

  • Thoughts that feel repetitive and intrusive

  • Difficulty focusing

  • Physical restlessness or tension

How I can Help:

  • Utilize concepts from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance Commitment Therapy to help you change your relationship to anxious thoughts

  • Teach you to rethink the way you respond to stressful situations through mindfulness-based strategies including cultivating present-moment awareness, self-compassion and acceptance for your life as it is

  • Help you to dig deeper and draw connections between your past experiences and the pressures and expectations that you put on yourself in the present
