About

Do you find yourself feeling anxious no matter what you do? Anxiety leaves us feeling stressed, fearful, and insecure. You may be fed up with constant negative thoughts, feeling overwhelmed with making decisions or self-doubt. You might not even remember a time that things didn’t feel this way. But one thing is for sure: you’re ready for some relief. You’re ready to feel confident about yourself and your decisions. You’re ready to stop asking others for reassurance and begin trusting in yourself. Most of all, you’re ready to stop letting anxiety limit you from fully participating in your life.

Clients come to me looking for a therapist who is compassionate, genuine, and trained in proven methods that treat anxiety, because therapy should be a place where you feel hopeful and gain momentum. Sessions with me are practical and focused on learning new tangible skills. We always go at your pace, never pushing to a place you don’t feel ready to go.

As an experienced anxiety therapist, I believe that mastering the ability to feel confident and empowered despite feeling anxiety is the optimal outcome of therapy. You don’t have to continue feeling anxious all the time, and you don’t have to do it alone. Call me today for a free 10-minute phone call. I can’t wait to hear from you.
