  • Anxiety

    Everyone gets nervous, but when your worries become overwhelming and begin negatively impacting your life, it can be a sign you need extra support.

    If you frequently experience three or more of these symptoms:

    • Nervousness, restlessness, or being tense
    • Feelings of danger, panic, or dread
    • Rapid breathing or hyperventilation
    • Increased or heavy sweating
    • Trembling or muscle twitching
    • Weakness or lethargy
    • Difficulty focusing or thinking clearly about anything other than the thing you’re worried about
    • Insomnia
    • Obsessions about certain ideas, a sign of obsessive-compulsive disorder
    • Anxiety surrounding a particular life event or experience that has occurred in the past, a sign of post-traumatic stress disorder

    …you may be experiencing anxiety.

    Not only can I give you tools and techniques to help you manage your symptoms, I can also help you understand the true source of your struggles.

    Together, we can come up with practical actions you can take to directly address what’s really keeping you down. My psychodynamic approach could be especially beneficial if you haven’t had long-term success addressing these issues with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
