However, if you have significant anxiety that persists and gets in the way of your life on a daily or weekly basis, you may want to seek help for it.

There are various forms of anxiety, including panic attacks, generalized anxiety, social anxiety, and phobias. I specialize in treating each of these areas. It's especially important to do a thorough evaluation with you to find out what's triggering your anxiety symptoms, how you react to them, and what life events may have contributed to them. We use a collaborative approach to set goals and work toward reaching them. My approach is based on research findings about how best to treat anxiety, and often involves cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), relaxation training, breathing exercises, as well as other techniques that address your specific needs.
