What is your go-to approach for anxiety therapy?

I view individual therapy for anxiety as a confidential safe space to explore oneself from a lens of validation and empathy to lead to organic problem-solving in areas that are no longer healthy for our development as whole human beings.

What tools do you teach in anxiety therapy?

I believe that self-awareness is our biggest skill, and effective communication is our biggest tool. I focus on building self-esteem and self-confidence through empowerment, boundary-building, and conflict-resolution skills.

How do you know when a client is making meaningful progress in anxiety therapy?

The way I evaluate meaningful progress from a client is when they tell me this work is hard. Nothing worth doing comes easy or is changed in a few sessions. Our brains are lazy…working with a client through changing habits and thought processes takes time, exploration, and practice without judgment.

What can clients do in their personal time to supplement anxiety therapy?

My therapy sessions always end with homework, whether it's literal homework in terms of behavioral charts for example, or creative arts, or more existentially around thinking through concerts in between sessions. Therapeutic work, in my opinion, does not happen exclusively in the sessions, it happens outside of sessions. The therapeutic setting is meant to explore concepts on a deeper level to then make the next step of practicing those skills and concepts in between sessions.

What should someone do to prepare for starting anxiety therapy?

Making the initial step to set up the session is the most important and most empowering/strength-based thing someone can do, albeit a scary one! To prepare for that first intake, remember, you're a rock star already.

Symptoms of Depression

If or when you do begin to feel depressed, the experience can be one of the most frightening and confusing of your lifetime, as the symptoms of depression are like nothing else. They include:

  1. Depressed mood, characterized by feelings of despair or hopelessness
  2. Reduced interest in all or most daily activities
  3. Significant changes in weight or appetite
  4. Sleep difficulty, characterized by insomnia or hypersomnia
  5. Obvious restlessness
  6. Fatigue or loss of energy
  7. Feelings of worthlessness
  8. Diminished ability to focus or make decisions
  9. Thoughts of suicide or death

A therapist or a psychologist can evaluate your depression symptoms, provide diagnosis, and most importantly, structure a treatment plan that will help you work through this.

Symptoms of Anxiety

Yes, overthinking from time to time is normal and okay. No, enduring constant worry and racing thoughts is not. Anxiety disorders are more than the occasional worry. These are characterized by severe or excessive fear/worry about various events.

Here are some common symptoms of anxiety disorders to keep an eye out for:

  • Excessive worrying
  • Intrusive thoughts
  • Fatigue
  • Emotional distress
  • Irritability
  • Hypervigilance
  • Sweating
  • Insomnia
  • Nausea
  • Trembling

If you experience these symptoms, consult a mental health professional. Their job is to help people address their mental health challenges, such as the development of mental illnesses like anxiety and depression.
