Anxiety can start as something small, but become more intense as we grow up and have new experiences. It can also really impact our ability to enjoy life. Anxiety comes in many different forms: Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Panic Disorder, Social Anxiety, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, etc. It can also manifest in the body, making us not only emotionally uncomfortable, but physically as well.

If you feel that your anxiety is starting to become a little too “loud” or getting in the way of every day life, this is the opportunity for you and I to work together.

My Approach

I can help you develop different tools through psychotherapy and mindful meditation to help your anxiety become less overwhelming and, eventually, rather quiet. The goal is to try and understand why the anxiety is currently present and what events are happening in your life that may be triggering it. On top of this, you will develop different coping skills that you can use in your day to day routine and become more comfortable with positive self talk.

My clients eventually feel empowered and more compassionate towards themselves. The goal is for you be able to use these tools on your own, so you no longer need me.

What to Expect if you choose me as your therapist:

  • I will always engage you with the utmost compassion and respect. I will never judge you or jump to conclusions.
  • We will always go at your preferred pace.
  • I am a naturally calm, caring and supportive person, and all of these qualities and characteristics will be readily apparent when we work together.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can’t I just take medication instead of going to therapy?

I believe that medication can definitely be helpful for some people. However, I also know that it can be used to mask and block emotions, and therefore prevent people from getting to the root cause of their challenges and issues.

After working together, if one of us feels that medication might be an option, we will certainly explore that further. Please note that I do not prescribe medication. I can, however, make recommendations for you to discuss with your psychiatrist or doctor.
