You are NOT alone. Almost one in five adults suffer from anxiety.
Anxiety and worry also effects many children and adolescents.
Effective treatments are available for the various anxiety disorders.
Contact me today so that I can teach you to take control of the worries.
I treat Panic Attacks, Chronic Worries, Phobias, Avoidance, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), as well as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). While I primarily use cognitive-behavioral (CBT) techniques, I also tailor other techniques to your needs. Many benefit in a short amount of time. Many are able to get better without medications.
I also specialize in treatment Trichotillomania (chronic hair picking) and Compulsive Skin Picking.
I offer Video Conferencing Counseling services to some Ohioans with OCD or Hair Pulling or Skin Picking. Email me if interested, with your insurance and availability. My intent is to offer services to people who don't have trained providers in their area.
