I am also a published author, with more than 20 articles and book chapters in areas of trauma, PTSD, and Biopsychosocial functioning.
My specialized expertise in Biopsychosocial Theory allows me to treat anxiety as a complex mind-body response involving your thoughts, feelings, and physiology. i will explain to you how the fight-flight-freeze response works and help you cope with it. I I help clients to develop mastery and self-efficacy over anxiety using techniques such as confronting feared situations or memories, learning muscle relaxation and deep breathing, identifying triggers and interrupting automatic behavior patterns, and changing negative thought patterns. I provide empathy, support, and active guidance so you do not face your fears alone.
I work collaboratively with you to develop an individualized treatment plan that best suits your personal style and life situation. Because these techniques are powerful, often substantial change can occur in a matter of weeks or months. I provide you with information, tools and coping strategies to help you tolerate and diminish your anxiety so you can move forward with the things that matter most in your life.
