Anxiety can rob us of sleep, interfere with our relationships, hamper our productivity, and keep us from trying new things. I will help you to develop an understanding of what triggers your anxiety and what may be underlying it, and to develop strategies that will help you manage both chronic and acute anxiety. There are many techniques and treatments for anxiety disorders, but none of them are effective or feasible for everyone. Together, you and I will develop a plan to overcome the obstacles that anxiety puts in your way.
Depression is a vicious circle. Depressed moods lead us to isolate, to interpret things people say negatively, and to lose hope that things can ever get better. That isolation, negative interpretation, and hopelessness serve to strengthen our depressive moods. Even mild forms of Depression can have a tremendous impact on an individual's functioning, productivity, and quality of life. Whether you are managing depression following a specific life event or dealing with a more chronic depressive condition, I can help you interrupt the depressive cycle and start feeling better.
Gender and Sexuality
The diversity of sexuality is one of the most fascinating aspects of the human experience. I have experience working with clients who are members of the LGBTQ communities, who are in non-monogamous and/or polyamorous relationships, members of the Kink community, and those who are questioning or unsure of their sexual orientation or identity. Regardless of the concerns, I approach issues related to sexuality with respect and a lack of judgment. Whether issues related to your sexuality are primary concerns for you or you have other issues but want to be comfortable discussing all aspects of your life with your therapist, I am confident that I can provide you a safe space to discuss your needs.
I utilize a trauma-informed lens which helps me to recognize the pervasive effects of many forms of trauma. While our work together may or may not focus specifically on your traumatic experiences, we can work together to develop a better understanding of how your history has impacted you. Beyond being trauma-informed, I am also trained in specific modalities that are helpful in the resolution of trauma reactions. These include Prolonged Exposure (PE) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
