Anxiety Treatment

Anxiety, in very small doses, is actually good for us. It motivates us to actually study, prepare for the meeting, or plan ahead. Unfortunately, like most things, in higher quantities can be quite terrible. It can negatively affect our relationships, work, and physical health. My goal is to discover the degree to which your anxiety is disrupting your life. Milder anxiety is well treated by counseling alone. I will teach coping skills, and help you navigate how to manage your anxiety. Moderate/severe anxiety is usually best treated by a combination of counseling and medication. I will partner with you in finding the right doctor, as well as incorporate proven therapies (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy) that effectively help treat anxiety and depression.
