Anxiety Therapist San Diego, CA
Imagine feeling free from worry, stress, and tension...
Seeing an anxiety therapist can help relieve these feelings and put you back in control of your life.
What you are experiencing is very common.
You are not the problem, it is merely the symptoms of anxiety within you that are causing problems in your life. In fact, anxiety disorders are the most common mental health condition in the United States, affecting approximately 18.1% of the population every year. This is not surprising, seeing as we live in a very fast-paced culture. In our society, we are told that “success” is earned by doing more and constantly challenging ourselves. We are expected to work, and we are expected to work hard. While hard work can benefit us in many ways, it can also become detrimental when we find that we are unable to relax and are constantly worrying about the next task that needs to get done. This is one type of anxiety, which I refer to as “high achiever anxiety” or “anticipatory anxiety”. Anxiety can manifest in many other ways in our lives, including: generalized anxiety, specific phobias, social anxiety, stress, panic attacks, or health-related anxiety.
Anxiety Therapy Can Help
What Does Therapy for Anxiety Look Like?
An anxiety therapist can help you uncover the underlying causes of your worries, learn how to calm down and relax, and begin to look at situations in new, less stressful ways. In anxiety therapy, I begin by providing a safe space for you to share all of your current thoughts, concerns, and struggles. We will identify and set goals by determining how you would like your life to look differently in regards to your current anxiety. Once I have a better understanding of your current concerns and goals, I will tailor your treatment and take an individualized approach to help you. I will help you learn lasting coping skills and stress-reduction techniques that we can practice together in session and that you will also be able to do on your own in between sessions. I utilize a variety of therapeutic techniques to decrease anxiety including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Exposure Response Prevention (ERP), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, and Mindfulness-Based Therapy skills.

Why Book an Anxiety Therapy Session with Me?
I personally have overcome multiple anxiety disorders in my own life, so I can understand firsthand just how difficult it may feel…but I can also tell you that it is possible to recover from chronic anxiety. I also have years of experience working with clients to successfully overcome anxiety in a variety of treatment settings including intensive outpatient and partial hospitalization programs, community-based mental health care, school settings, residential treatment centers, outpatient therapy clinics, and private practice.
Not only do I have the personal experience of overcoming multiple anxiety disorders and helping clients do the same in a variety of settings, but I also offer additional mindfulness skills to clients that can be very powerful in the treatment of anxiety. I am a Registered Yoga Teacher, and my training as both a therapist and yoga teacher has allowed me to utilize specific mind/body approaches such as meditation, breathing practices, and guided imagery for anxiety reduction. These evidence-based approaches can help reduce distress and anxiety right in that moment. I provide you with the skills and guidance to learn these techniques so you can feel empowered and confident to use them on your own outside of session.

What Is an Anxiety Disorder?
Occasional anxiety is a part of life — we all get nervous or worried at times, such as before taking a test or making an important decision. Anxiety Disorders involve more than just a temporary worry or fear. If you have an anxiety disorder, the uncomfortable feelings of anxiety do not go away on their own and may increase over time. These symptoms of fear and worry can negatively interfere with work, school, and relationships. Getting therapy for anxiety is a great way to get individualized help to treat the Anxiety Disorder, so that you can go on to live your life free from constant worry, fear, and uncomfortable physical sensations of anxiety.
