“Worrying is carrying tomorrow’s load with today’s strength – carrying two days at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying doesn’t empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.”

 ~Corrie Ten Boom


Welcome to my space for understanding and overcoming anxiety. I am committed to helping you lessen the grip of anxiety and regain control of your life. Whether you’re struggling with generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), social anxiety, panic attacks, or any other form of anxiety, there is hope for a life filled with peace, confidence, and resilience.

What is Anxiety?

Anxiety is a natural and often adaptive response to stress or danger. However, when anxiety becomes chronic, overwhelming, or interferes with daily life, it can be debilitating. Anxiety can manifest in various ways, including:

  1. Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD): Persistent and excessive worry about everyday situations, often accompanied by physical symptoms like restlessness, muscle tension, and sleep disturbances.
  2. Social Anxiety Disorder: Intense fear of social situations, leading to avoidance of social interactions, public speaking, or performing in front of others.
  3. Panic Disorder: Recurrent panic attacks characterized by sudden, intense fear and physical symptoms such as a racing heart, shortness of breath, and a sense of impending doom.
  4. Phobias: Specific and irrational fears of certain objects, situations, or activities, which can lead to avoidance behavior.
  5. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD): Intrusive, repetitive thoughts (obsessions) and compulsive behaviors performed to alleviate anxiety.

Anxiety can also occur due to physical factors therapy cannot help. These include certain medications, brain injuries, and certain neurological conditions like autism. These physical conditions can result in an increase in anxiety.

How Can I Help You Manage Anxiety?

My goal is to provide effective therapy and support for individuals dealing with anxiety, empowering them to lead fulfilling lives. Here’s how I can assist you:

  1. Specialized Therapy: I offer evidence-based therapy for anxiety, tailored to your unique needs. I utilize techniques which use body movement (somatics) to assist in releasing the underlying causes of anxiety. Together, we will identify the underlying causes of your anxiety and develop strategies to manage it.
  2. Education and Awareness: Gain a better understanding of the nature of anxiety, its triggers, and how it affects your body and mind.
  3. Coping Strategies: Learn practical techniques and coping skills to manage anxiety symptoms, including relaxation exercises, mindfulness, and cognitive-behavioral strategies.
  4. Medication Management: When appropriate, I can collaborate with a psychiatrist to explore medication options to complement therapy.
