Therapy for Anxious Professionals


Take a deep breath again.

I help lawyers and other professionals overcome difficult emotions and experience relief.

You feel tight in your chest, spinning thoughts, difficulty concentrating, and can’t focus on work or anything else. Your relationships feel shaky and you wake up most mornings dreading the day ahead. You wish you could somehow take a breath, but the pressing demands make it almost impossible. You don’t feel like yourself anymore. Sometimes you might feel “stuck” in a certain behavior or feeling that you can’t change. You might feel frustrated at how these symptoms cause other cascading problems in your personal and professional life.

More than anything, you wish you could feel clear and confident. You want to make smart decisions, use your time intentionally, and make space for what you love. You want to be able to focus attention on things you care about. You want to enjoy your life again.

I can help you get there. The first step is simply to understand your emotions so we can learn to handle the stressors of life in a new, healthy way. When we can understand your symptoms, we create new pathways for your mind to handle stressful experiences so you rely less on destructive patterns. This inner strength is the start of an upward spiral that creates growth in your energy, relationships, and professional life.

Let’s get you to a place where you can wake up feeling hopeful about your life. Request a call with me today.
Why do I have panic attacks?

Panic attacks and anxiety can affect your sleep, your relationships, your productivity, and your mood. If we don’t have a way to manage panic, we suppress it with addictive behaviors, such as workaholism, substances, and chronic phone use. Reducing panic attacks means shifting our understanding from frustration and suppression to empathy and self-soothing.

What kinds of problems do you help with?

I help lawyers, professionals, and couples who are feeling overwhelmed by difficult and hard-to-move-through emotions. Sometimes I help people with OCD, anxiety, panic, trauma, and depression. Often the symptoms a person experiences is the expression of a deeper belief or memory that needs to be expressed and understood. This helps create new pathways so we can resolve the feeling and move forward.

What do you like about being a therapist?

It's easy to feel alone in a city as large as LA. I think most of us are looking for good conversation about things that matter most to us, but instead are sometimes treated cogs in a larger engine. I find joy in setting aside a sanctuary for my clients where we can open up more of who they are and discover things that make a real difference in their lives.
