2655 Portage Bay East, Suite 8
I had always been an anxious person even from childhood. When I had to perform on stage, stage-fright would leave me literally paralyzed and dumb. Then I went to Vietnam as a combatant and came home with one hell of a case of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder that included ten years of night mares, flashbacks and very little ability to get or keep a job or a relationship.
What I know about treating anxiety disorders comes from my experience of my own healing and from my understanding of the scientific literature about what works. My great curiosity about the brain has helped me simplify my understanding of anxiety and how to treat it effectively.
Healing can take great courage. I have seen hundreds of my patients become fully functioning, easy going, happy people who maintain good relationships and have rewarding work. It can take some time but it is well worth the effort. The most rewarding thing is when someone tells me that they are sleeping well and they just weathered a difficult situation with grace.
I treat Generalized Anxiety, OCD, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Bi-Polar Disorder and sleep problems. I also do medication consultations and help with treatment plans when someone prefers not to take medication. I would be happy to discuss anxiety with you and to help you live your life abundantly.
