Find peace in the uncertainty of life.

Anxiety needs to take a backseat so you can be in the driver’s seat of your life again!

Anxiety can quickly go from being a helpful safety measure to a constant feeling of worry and panic. Maybe you are having trouble sleeping because those anxious thoughts about the “what ifs” won’t stop. Or maybe you haven’t been able to get rid of that knot in your stomach that feels like something bad is going to happen any minute now. Ever replay an interaction with someone afterwards over and over again, trying to decide if it went okay or if you messed up? Sometimes anxiety even shows up in your work or home duties like difficulty concentrating, procrastination, or trouble getting things done. 

However it’s affecting you, anxiety therapy offers proven strategies to help you break free from these stuck patterns and learn new ways to navigate the uncertainties in life with more ease. You can’t always change the difficult things that are happening around you but you can change how you allow them to affect you and how you cope with them. That’s what I’m here to help with!

Skill building

My approach to anxiety therapy

Life is complicated, that’s a fact. Instead of wishing that these life challenges would stop, it’s more helpful to develop new skills to tackle them differently. Together we’ll work on learning practical ways to manage anxiety and navigate difficult situations. You’ll build a personalized toolbox of coping strategies that are tailored to your unique struggles. 

Relationship improvements

Anxiety can negatively affect relationships, both with yourself and with others. We’ll examine the thought and behavior patterns that may be keeping you stuck. We’ll work on developing a more realistic view of the scenarios you encounter (without all the hypotheticals) and shift focus into ways to feel more connected and fulfilled in your relationships.  

New Perspectives

It often feels like anxiety is the enemy and you may have wished that it would just go away completely! But actually, we all need to have some level of anxiety to help us stay safe and make wise choices. We’ll work on learning the helpful vs. unhelpful aspects of anxiety and identify your personal values that can help you use anxiety to your advantage, when it’s most useful. 

Our work together can help you...

  • Gain insight into the current patterns that are keeping you stuck
  • Better understand the purpose anxiety serves and no longer see it as a bad thing
  • Build a variety of coping skills to better manage anxiety when it pops up
  • Feel equipped to handle day-to-day challenges with more confidence and ease
  • Strengthen relationships by improving communication, boundaries, and other social skills 
  • Improve your self-care habits, including sleep and physical health
  • Feel more happy, hopeful, and at peace

Break free from anxiety’s hold on you!

Frequently Asked Questions about Anxiety Therapy

A: Anxiety cannot be cured. It’s healthy and natural to continue to experience some anxiety throughout life. The aim of therapy is not to get rid of anxiety completely but instead to help you understand what’s causing it, learn skills to better manage it, and make changes in your life to reduce it down to a reasonable level. 


Q: Can you cure my anxiety? 

A: Our length of time working together can vary based on your personal situation, severity of symptoms, and dedication to the process. I’ve seen clients achieve their anxiety therapy goals within a few months and others who enjoy a longer process closer to a year or more. We’ll discuss the plan for your sessions when we first start working together and I’ll check in with you throughout services to review your progress and how you are feeling about our work together. Length of treatment can always be adjusted as needed. 


Q: How long does anxiety therapy usually last? 

A: I use a variety of evidence-based treatments that have been proven to be effective for anxiety disorders, including CBT, ACT, and mindfulness strategies. You may find that one of these works best for you or maybe a combination of all three! Head over to my About page for more information on each of these therapy approaches.
