I offer cognitive behavioral therapy for anxiety and depression to help you better cope with distressing emotions and life’s challenges.
Do You Have an Anxiety Disorder?
Anyone with an anxiety disorder might struggle to get through any day, while experiencing a sense of fear, panic, or nervousness at the same time. People handle anxiety disorders differently and they often go untreated when they think it’s normal to feel like they do. If your anxiety or panic symptoms are causing you distress or interfering with work, school, relationships, or any other area of life, it’s time to seek treatment. As a cognitive behavioral therapist, I can help you overcome anxiety.
Types of Anxiety Disorders
If you’ve experienced anxiety or a panic attack before, identifying the type is the first step in getting the appropriate treatment. The most common types of anxiety disorders include:
Social anxiety - going out of your way to avoid social interactions with people
Generalized anxiety - worrying about things daily, even insignificant things
Panic disorder - suffering a panic attack without any warning signs
Phobias - fearing specific situations or events that might not be causing immediate danger
As an anxiety therapist, I will help you understand the type of anxiety you are experiencing and develop an appropriate and effective treatment plan to work on together.
What to Expect from an Anxiety Therapist
I provide cognitive behavioral therapy for anxiety, which is the gold standard treatment for anxiety disorders. Avoiding your feelings and emotions will make your anxiety worse. Instead, I will work with you to teach you to understand the nature of anxiety and learn powerful skills and tools to overcome distressing and debilitating anxiety. We will work together for you to regain control of your life.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Anxiety and Panic
Panic attacks can be scary because you might feel like you’re having a heart attack. As a cognitive behavioral therapist who treats panic attacks, I’ll help you understand how to accurately perceive and understand your thoughts, emotions, and bodily sensations. Powerful tools such as cognitive restructuring, exposure therapy, and mindfulness techniques are simple and effective in learning how to regulate and tolerate anxiety.
