As anyone who has struggled with anxiety knows, unresolved anxieties have the ability to obstruct a variety of typically enjoyable or happy experiences, only to turn them into an endless cycle of discomfort. I developed my practice of therapy to increase the abilities of my clients to identify processes which create anxiety, to develop concrete, practical responses to those processes, and put solutions into action. I work from a truly eclectic framework in drawing upon strategies of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), as well as a person centered approach to fully transform the unproductive worries that interfere with one’s ability to live the life they seek.
