Therapists Specializing in Anxiety in New Jersey

Anxiety is a common mental health challenge, and it’s natural for many people to experience some level of worry, stress, or fear throughout the day. When these feelings become overwhelming or interfere with daily life, it can be helpful to seek out a trained therapist to understand where anxious thoughts are coming from and develop coping skills to respond more effectively to triggers.

While most clinicians are trained to treat generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), other types of anxiety, such as panic disorder, phobias, social anxiety, and OCD may benefit from more specialized care.

Do you feel every task, big or small, is impossible? Do you feel lonely and alone? Does anxiety or depression affect you in ways that feel overwhelming?

I want to help you if you are feeling this way. It is important to learn about yourself, what is causing these feelings, and to know that there are solutions and supports in place. It is then, that one can begin to heal, return to being productive and happy, and living a better life. I am here to help you in this journey.

We all experience times in our lives when we know that things can be better. We flip through social media and think that everyone else seems to have a perfect life, compounding our pain.

I believe that we are all capable of being our best selves and living full, meaningful lives. Therapy can provide the space to determine what is getting in the way. You may have encountered some obstacles in your path or struggle with painful emotions, such as anxiety. You may be experiencing difficulty managing a transition or planning your future. Additionally, you might be caught up in behaviors that intensify the hurt, frustration, loneliness and sorrow. Maybe you are drinking too much alcohol, using drugs, over-shopping, gaming or eating in a way that doesn't feel good. You might be internalizing responses to stress and pain through self-criticism, isolation, and rumination.

You are not alone. We all have the potential for change. I'd like to help you identify what is creating or contributing to your struggles, as well as help you to locate what is in your control to change and take the steps towards the life you desire.

My approach is supportive and dynamic, using mindfulness, self-compassion and cognitive and behavioral strategies that have been proven to help. I would be honored to be your partner in helping you grow.

It’s important to me that you feel comfortable in sharing your self with me. If you are feeling shame or embarrassment about your behavior or some aspects of your self, you will not be judged by me. You are doing the best you can under the circumstances.

Together, we can figure out a way forward that helps ease the feelings of anxiety and depression that propelled you to find a therapist. In time, you will find resolution in other areas of your life including a greater tolerance of your own feelings and an increase in self-compassion.

Every psychotherapy, whether it involves talking, medications or a combination of both, must begin with a clear sense of who an individual wants to be, or what defines that individual's core essence. Everything proceeds from this starting point in a process that is constantly reassessing the difference between that "ideal self" and where one is in the moment. This contrast assures that there will be constant movement forwards in the therapy. Of course one invariably seeks help at a moment of acute distress, but emerging from a place of discontent or suffering offers a unique opportunity at transformation and it is our goal to take full advantage of that opportunity.

By far the most powerful agency we possess is the ability to choose our life's path. Our thoughts and emotions can be fleeting and unreliable but they can also erode the confidence in our ability to make the choices that serve us well. A therapeutic process must restore the preeminence of your choices to allow you to craft the life that deep down, you always knew you were meant to lead.

At different times in our lives we can feel stuck and struggle with finding our way.

I work with individuals who are dealing with loss and trauma, sadness and anxiety or having difficulties in relationships, work, school, parenting, and varying life-stage transitions. In this safe, supportive and warm environment we will work together to help you feel better while also understanding what is causing your distress.

My goal is to provide an environment that makes you feel safe and enables you to express yourself openly about anything that you need to talk about. It is so important to have at least one person in your life that you can talk to without being "on" or having to worry about what you say. I will strive to understand you and to help you understand yourself.
I am here to listen and support you through whatever you are going through and to work with you to see aspects of the situation that you may not be fully aware of. We will work on understanding your unique challenges and developing your hidden strengths. We all get stuck in patterns of behavior that could use some revision. We will work on your becoming conscious of the motivations behind your behaviors and determine healthier ways of meeting the needs that the behaviors are satisfying in the moment that get in the way of who you really are and what you truly want.
