I specialize in working with teens who experience anxiety-related challenges. Anxiety can take many forms, from a feeling of foreboding, apprehension, and depression, to physical symptoms including sweating, shortness of breath, and feeling like your heart may beat out of your chest. Everyone experiences anxiety a bit differently, from mild moments to debilitating and frightening episodes, but it doesn’t have to be this way.
Many of us experience anxiety from time to time, and it’s important to remember this. You can have anxiety without it controlling you. When we first begin working together, I’ll first help you to address any “of the moment” anxiety you may be feeling, clearing the way for you to better understand what’s happening in your mind when you feel anxiety, and how to get in touch with different parts of your mind to find relief. We’ll discuss what happens to your body when anxiety takes over and how various tools can help you calm down quickly. Honing your ability to look inward, understand yourself, and deploy the best tool for the moment can help you gain a sense of control and live your preferred life.
I believe that everyone can change and grow at any time in their lives. I have witnessed powerful healing and growth through therapy, which is why being a therapist is truly a gift. It’s a privilege to help everyone who steps into my office. I believe that therapy relationships are naturally healing. And even though what we talk about is important, I know the relational context does a lot of the work. As a young adult, I suffered from severe anxiety and depression. Through my own therapy, I learned how to manage my mental health. I want you to feel the same freedom that I experience every day. If you’re ready to feel relief, let’s talk and work together to create a better life for you.
