Anxiety & Depression

Specializing in Anxiety

Our fast paced culture can be a breeding ground for heightened stress and anxiety.  So many factors can increase our likelihood to experience symptoms of anxiety.  Anything from social media, constant negative news stories, natural disasters, toxic people, constant stress and trauma are just some of the things that can contribute to our increased worry, fear, and altered moods.  Nearly 40 million people are affected with some of anxiety affecting almost 1 in 5 adults in the United States.*  

Types of Anxiety:

  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder
  • Social Anxiety
  • Perinatal/Postpartum Anxiety
  • Performance Anxiety
  • Health Anxiety
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Specific Phobias

As an anxiety specialist, I guide so you can break you free from anxiety's powerful grip.  Living in a constant state of worry can be paralyzing, and often prevent us from functioning in our day to day work and personal life. You may wonder if this feeling will last forever.   You may wonder if you will ever feel “normal” again.  Anxiety often takes form of an invisible bully, and as your therapist, I help you to  transform this bully into a powerful ally.
