Do you wish you could relax more, worry less and become the person you know you can be, or used to be?
Perhaps you’re experiencing a chronic sense of uneasiness or an inability to enjoy life like everyone else around you. Or maybe your anxiety is much more intrusive, preventing you from doing the things you used to do with ease.
On the outside, you may look like you have it all together, but inside you are freaking out as you struggle to push away intrusive and scary sensations and thoughts. Any semblance of control feels like it’s slipping away. Your once full life is now closing in on you as you obsess over all the scary ‘what ifs’ that keep you from living in the present. Anxiety has become a constant companion for you and it is negatively affecting your work and/or relationships.
Whatever your situation may be, there’s one thing I want you to know: you are not alone. At this very moment, there are millions of men and women going through the exact same fears and uncomfortable sensations as you are. The good news is that anxiety is treatable. You do not need to suffer in silence or feel that you have to figure it out on your own.
Anxiety therapy can help you reclaim your life. Too many people delay anxiety treatment because, paradoxically, anxiety often makes reaching out for help feel too scary or overwhelming.
WHEN YOU GET STARTED, YOU’LL REALIZE IT’S NOT.
Therapy for anxiety may help if…
- You over-think things and/or have difficulty making decisions
- You’re avoiding people and situations to prevent feeling overwhelmed or anxious
- Worry and stress are taking over your life
- Your over-anxious mind is keeping you from falling or staying asleep
- Anxiety is negatively impacting your relationships or, work or social encounters
- You constantly feel on edge and can’t seem to regain a sense of peace and calm
- You feel like you’re losing control
- It’s hard to be present with yourself or others
Suffering from anxiety does not mean you’re broken, a failure or about to lose your mind. It simply means you have new skills you need to learn. Skills that anxiety therapy can help you master that much more quickly so you can walk through life feeling freer and more at ease in your own skin.
Find peace of mind with anxiety counseling
Taming the anxiety tiger with new skills and knowledge
As you’ve probably noticed, anxiety has a sneaky, insidious way of closing in on us and making our world seem smaller. It also has a way of eroding relationships. We’ll work to gain back all that you’ve lost, and more.
Together, we will discover the root cause of your anxiety. This can be a huge breakthrough in and of itself, because when you understand why you’re thinking and feeling the way you are, a sense of relief often follows.
I’ll also help you to identify productive and unproductive thinking so you can stop anxious thoughts in their tracks, before they escalate.
To add to your skills, you’ll learn how to create a sense of safety and support in your body, understand triggers and new ways to work with them, how to sit with uncomfortable feelings, and more.
The truth is, anxiety is not your enemy – even if it sometimes feels like it is! Instead, it’s more like an over-protective mother, wanting to keep you safe at every turn.
The goal of anxiety counseling is to re-establish your relationship with anxiety so that it’s in balance and working to your advantage, not against your happiness, relationships and health.

During our first online session, we’ll discuss the initial paperwork you filled out prior to our session and define some of the goals you’d like to achieve. By the end of this session, you’ll have a good sense of what online therapy feels like with me and we’ll be ready to start doing the transformative work that will improve your life.

Online sessions will be designed with your specific goals in mind. We will explore how your anxiety impacts your daily life and relationships and ways to help create a felt sense of safety and calm in your body.
