Individual Therapy for Anxiety & Stress


"It may take courage to embrace the possibilities of your own potential but once you've flown past the summit of your fears, nothing will seem impossible."


-Michael McKee

Anxiety is experienced in so many different ways.  Especially for those of us living in or near a big city like Los Angeles, removed from nature, trees, and the slower way of life.  It may be experienced as uncontrolled worry over big or small things, or nothing specific at all.  For others, it may be constant intrusive thoughts, obsessions and compulsions, a racing mind, being stuck in your head.   Fear of missing out FOMO, Social with what the other person may be thinking or feeling about you, or just the inabilty to relax. This can create a constant need to avoid by staying busy such as with work, numbing with addiction, or falling down into depression.


Anxiety within reason is a normal part of life.  It becomes a problem however when it becomes so strong and pervasive that is stops us from living fully.  This often contributes to FOMO, or as I say, TOMO, The Trauma of Missing Out.  


My philosophy in treating anxiety comes from my own personal and professional experience in going through and recovering from anxiety.  I find that not only is there great value in understanding ourselves and how we work more fully, but also in learning about what the anxiety is there to teach us.  Working together, we will learn to better understand the root cause of your anxiety so that you may understand and work with it in a new way.  Treating anxiety is a process of learning about yourself and what you need on your jouney of becoming more whole, complete and balanced.  I can help you.
