You Can Feel Calm and In Control Again. You Just Need a Little Help.
You’re feeling anxious and overwhelmed, and you don’t know what to do. Being an adolescent or adult is hard enough without feeling like your anxiety has taken over. You’re just trying to cope with everyday stressors like work, family, relationships, and life transitions. Or, you’re a couple that is seeking counseling and you’re anxious about how it’s going to go. This relationship is important to you, and you want to make sure it’s healthy.
Maybe you’re struggling with a panic disorder that has made your life more difficult. You want support and understanding, and you don’t want to feel like you’re on your own anymore. Or, maybe you’re engaging in substance abuse to cope with your feelings of stress and anxiety. But you know that’s not the answer. You think you’re ready to make a change.
What are the Signs or Symptoms of Anxiety?
The signs and symptoms of anxiety may look different for different people. Anxiety can present itself in both physical and psychological forms. That will mean things like a racing heart, sweating, difficulty sleeping, difficulty concentrating, and even physical pain. In some cases, it may manifest itself as fear or panic.
Common signs of anxiety may include:
- Night terrors
- Racing heart rate

- Irrational fears
- Inability to concentrate
- Changes in sleeping patterns
- Feeling on edge

Each person will present differently and have different experiences, so it’s important to understand and recognize your signs of anxiety. Some individuals may experience many of these symptoms, while others may have only a few. The intensity of the symptoms and how often they occur can also vary from person to person.

I am Here to Support You
As an anxiety and trauma specialist, I have worked with many individuals who have struggled with anxiety. They were struggling to cope with extreme stress, the symptoms of their anxiety, and the emotional pain it caused. Before therapy, they were feeling alone, exhausted, and overwhelmed. Feeling as if they had no control over their own lives. However, once starting therapy, they began to feel calmer, more in control, and began to explore their strengths.

Therapy Can Help to Uncover the Underlying Causes of Your Worries and Fears.
During therapy, you will learn to uncover and identify the underlying causes of your worries and fears. But also learn how to relax, look at situations in a new, less frightening way, and develop better-coping mechanisms and problem-solving skills. We will work together to overcome your fears and build resilience. As well as to create positive changes in your life.
