My Approach to Helping

I believe that therapy should be interesting! Many individuals who struggle with anxiety are also capable of an incredible level of depth, and my approach to therapy respects that capability. Rather than staying at the surface, I work with my clients to go beyond the mundane everyday appearances of things - to explore their hidden significance.


As an anxiety specialist, I work almost exclusively with individuals who are suffering from anxiety or from related conditions that are often caused by anxiety (such as substance abuse or depression). I provide comprehensive treatment that is based on the latest scientific findings and informed by years of experience.


The type of therapy I use works well. Its efficacy is backed up by thousands upon thousands of peer-reviewed scientific studies and hundreds of meta-analyses that have been conducted over many decades. If you suffer from anxiety, or a related condition, I highly suggest you seek therapy either from myself or from another qualified provider. I would be happy to provide you with a referral if you feel that you and I are not a good fit for one another.

More Info About My Practice

In addition to providing therapy services, I also publish a free anti-anxiety guide designed as an adjunct to therapy. If you would like a digital copy of this guide, please visit my website.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

Good therapy is both a science and an art. If you have gone to therapy before and felt unsatisfied, this may be because you felt the therapist leaned either too heavily on their intuition or else because they were too rigid in their approach. Perhaps therapy did not work for you because your therapist used an approach that is not scientifically vetted (and more to the point, does not really work) or perhaps they did not really know how to help you. Maybe they were not really listening to you.

Whatever the reason, you should know that not all therapists are a good fit for every ciient. Also, not every therapist is of equal merit. In therapy, as with any profession, fit and competency vary greatly... and although the therapy process is never without its upsets, mistakes, and discomforts - excellent therapists that would be a good fit for you do exist. So don't give up. There are good therapists in your area, that would be a great fit for you, and you can find one if you put the right work into looking for one. Please reach out if you need help with referrals or if you have questions about the process of choosing a therapist.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

If you decide to seek therapy, keep in mind that it is a good idea to shop around and find just the right therapist for you.

You can do this online and in person. After finding some therapists you like online, request some initial consultations. There are a number of things you should be looking for when you are shopping around for a therapist. Try to determine if the therapist will be a good fit for you (in terms of personality, cultural background, gender, and so forth...). Also, try to find out if they are competent to treat the issues you are bringing to them. For example, find out if they have experience treating people with similar symptoms and also find out what approach they take to therapy (for example: CBT, Psychoanalysis, etc...). Have them explain their approach to you and try to determine whether this approach will be a good fit for you.
