Anxiety Counseling

People start therapy for a variety of reasons and those reasons are so different from one person to the next. But when you’re ready to stop feeling the way you feel and wanting to have the life you want, you know. If you’ve landed here, that time is now. Is the fire lit under your bum? It is? Good.

I use all sorts of ways to think about problems and solutions and patterns and many other technical terms that may bore you to explain. If they don’t I will tell you whatever you want to know. But if they do, suffice it to say that this is a dynamic process that works differently than just thinking or talking about a problem. We change our approach based on the feedback we get from the process and from you. This is a choose your own adventure and I get to be your travel guide. Sound fun? It is!

My superpower is in helping you heal through anxiety, relationship problems, social worries, ADHD, or whatever else you’re experiencing. I help people who are overwhelmed, exhausted, lost or just want more from their life who already have most of it figured out. I am practical, deep, thoughtful, and engaged in ways that legitimately and genuinely help. I understand that you are the person you are for many many good reasons. 

These are all things people say they are experiencing when they start talking to me:
