The cycle of feelings and actions can be tragically endless, particularly when it results serious mental health problems. But if we can understand that our thoughts matter, and can truly affect how we feel and how we act, then we can truly transform this negative cycle and our outlook on life. Pairing this with a firm resolve to put our new perspective into action (whether we feel like it or not) can help us to be successful in overcoming much of what we fear and struggle through in life.

I specialize in treating those who experience worry in all of its forms - whether it is social, phobia-related, general, or school avoidance, or all of the above! I understand how it feels to be consumed with feelings of chest-tightening, shallow-breathing, palm sweating anxiety, and my goal is to help you learn and implement ways to manage and reduce these symptoms so that they no longer rule your life. I utilize strategies from CBT, DBT, mindfulness-based, and solutions focused therapy.
