My Approach to Helping

To those around you, you may look like you have it all together. But on the inside, you're screaming. Your anxiety, obsessive thoughts and compulsions are overwhelming you. You struggle with sleep almost every night and spend your days feeling exhausted. No one understands your pain because all they can see is someone whose life looks perfect. You've tried to make changes, but nothing seems to work.

But there is help! Why wait another day? Why continue to suffer with anxiety, panic attacks, avoidance of places and activities you used to enjoy? Send me an email, give me a call and we can set up a time to talk on the phone or schedule your first session. Let's get to work on getting you to the life that you deserve. Take the time to take care of yourself and begin that journey to find the peace and contentment you deserve!

No long drives, or time off of work, or driving in inclement weather. Just use your phone, laptop, or tablet and we can meet in the comfort of your home or car, or office!

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Anxiety, and Phobias. I use Exposure Response Prevention to treat the symptoms that are holding you back from enjoying your life. I also use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to help you manage your obsessive thoughts and worries. These therapies are scientifically proven to be effective!

Insomnia. I have been trained in a specific form of therapy that has been found to be very successful in treating sleep disturbances. CBT for Insomnia is an easy, brief, and helpful therapy that can lead to healthy sleep patterns.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is the "gold standard" for modern therapy and I am skilled in using CBT to help people with a variety of life challenges. I also use Acceptance and Commitment therapy to help clients reach their goals.
