Online and In-Person Therapy for Anxiety

Anxiety is a condition we all experience at some point. However, for those of us who are impacted on a regular basis by anxiety or panic, it can have a big impact on our lives. Symptoms of anxiety include having obsessive or ruminating thoughts, worrying about the future, ruminating on the past, struggles with sleep, or having physical symptoms (digestive issues, sweating, increased heart rate) that impact your daily functions. We all experience anxiety a bit differently. 

Anxiety Disorders

Certain levels of anxiety may qualify as an anxiety disorder (Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Agoraphobia, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, and specific phobias). I currently offer help with each of these conditions, but if you experience acute OCD or phobia, I may refer you to someone with specialized training.

How I Can Help

I help clients learn more about their specific anxiety, how it started and developed, and the best ways to work with anxiety on a day- to-day basis. I will help clients learn how to cope, ground, and regulate their nervous systems, and may suggest reflective journaling or behavior-change goals as a way to help.

Therapy for Relationships

Relationships are the literal backbone of our lives. If you find yourself struggling to maintain friendships, romantic relationships, or even staying connected to your own family, you may need to learn more about your attachment styles, your communication skills, your past, and your emotions.

Attachment and Relationship Patterns

The way you were raised 100% impacts how you interact and maintain connections with others as an adult. Most of us model our relationships off our family relationships- and for some of us, that’s not the best news.

How I Can Help

I work with my clients to help them dig into their pasts and help them understand the patterns and habits that aren’t currently working. We might focus on regulating our emotions around others, soothing anxiety that keeps us disconnected, or figuring out what it might look like if you started actually telling people what you need and want.

Online and In-Person Therapy for Boundaries and Self-Confidence

It might not surprise you to see the phrase “boundary” next to “self-confidence”. Should we also add people-pleasing to this list? When we believe that our needs aren’t important, that keeping other’s happy is priority number 1, we are left with a lot of anxiety and very little self-confidence.

Boundaries & People-Pleasing

Boundaries are the one thing we have control over. Boundaries protect your time, energy, space, and emotions- they’re not punishments or ways to control others. People-pleasing is all about avoiding the discomfort of others- if they’re happy, we’re happy, right? People-pleasers need to learn not only how to set boundaries, but also believe they deserve them.

How I Can Help

I help clients to come to terms with their people-pleasing- how you learned it, where is started, and how it’s held you back. We will work to raise the level of respect you have for yourself through behavior changes as well as changing your inner voice. We will learn more about what boundaries are, what boundaries you need, and how you can implement them in your daily life.

Therapy for Stress and Burnout

Between work, family, dating/relationships, and friends, there is a lot to always be balancing and managing. It’s honestly crazy anyone trusts ANY of us to just stay alive. If you’re struggling with managing your stress levels or are having a hard time coping with big life circumstances, there are things you can do.

Signs of Burnout
  • Emotional exhaustion/ numbness
  • Sense of hopelessness
  • Fatigue
  • Low motivation
  • Feeling detached
How I Can Help
  • Being someone to listen without judgment (shocker!)
  • Assisting with coping skill development
  • Boundary work
  • Values assessments and career discussions

Online and In-Person Therapy to Control Emotions

Raise your hand if your parents taught you to manage your emotions as a kiddo. That’s what I thought.

Most of us were not taught how to name emotions, validate emotions, or truly experience our emotions. If we can’t deal with our own emotions, we are certainly not going to be great at managing the emotions of others. And then the cycle repeats…

Impacts of Poor Emotional Regulation
  • High levels of stress, anxiety, and depression
  • Explosive anger
  • Poor communication
  • Disconnection from others
How I Can Help

I offer clients a step by step process for accessing emotions in a clear and structured way. This process includes learning about the impact of emotions on the nervous systems, learning coping skills that managing the nervous system reactions, developing customized coping skills based on your needs and experiences, and decreasing fear and discomfort around facing your feelings.

Therapy for Food and Body Image Concerns

Growing up in a world that demonizes both food and bodies sets us up for major struggles. Clients often share having rigid rules around food consumption (restriction, moderation, calorie counting, etc) or exercise (food as reward, needing to “burn off” meals or snacks). Many of these rules seem normal but at steeped in diet-culture and anti-fatness. I am deeply aligned with the Health At Every Size (HAES) movement, as well as the intuitive eating framework.

Intuitive Eating

Intuitive eating is not just eating what you want! It is a specific 10 part framework that focused on dismantling diet culture, reassessing rules and policing of foods, regaining body connection and trust, and finding freedom.

How I Can Help
  • Step by step processing of the intuitive eating framework
  • Examining and confronting beliefs about food, body, and exercise.
  • Emotional regulation tools
  • I do not help with weight-loss or nutrition plans.

Services for Niche Communities

Many of my clients are queer and trans– I am an active ally to all members of this community.

I work with many clients who experience chronic pain and chronic illness. I understand the grief and frustration that come with these experiences.

I am anti-diet culture and anti-fatphobia. I believe in body liberation. I do not help clients change their bodies, but I do help improve their relationship with them.

I am always moving forward with my own work around privilege and race. I believe in systemic racism and am progressive in my social and political beliefs.

Many of my clients have experienced trauma, but I am NOT a trauma therapist. I am however, trauma-informed, meaning I am knowledgable and aware of the role our body plays in trauma processing and healing. Clients with active trauma may be referred.

I am neurodivergent-affirming and see clients with Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, sensory differences, and more. I also support self-diagnosis as a valid and valuable experience.
