Therapy for Anxiety, Trauma, and Depression
Times have been challenging! Many have struggled over the years to get through the day, the week, or to the end of the month. For many, trauma, anxiety and depression has been building. We are here to help! We are a team of trauma informed therapists to provide you the healing space to address your concerns with compassion and non judgement.
If you are struggling with anxiety it can feel overwhelming and out of control. It can sneak up on you when you least suspect it or it may show up in irritable outbursts. Sometimes it can show up with obsessive thoughts, overwhelming feelings, and intense body sensations. Therapy can be helpful in teaching you mindfulness, manage stress, and overcome anxiety.
If you are struggling with depression you may have noticed it’s more than sadness. It can feel like a heavy weight or a numbness. It can show up with too little sleep or too much sleep. You may have notice that you’ve lost interest in things you once enjoyed or are avoiding hanging out with friends. We can help you take the steps you need to overcome depression and move forward.
Trauma impacts most of us. If you have been struggling with a trauma it can be helpful to talk with a trauma informed specialist to help you process your experience. We are here to create a safe space to help you heal and move forward.

When it comes to treating anxiety disorders, research shows that therapy is usually the most effective option. That’s because anxiety therapy – as opposed to anxiety medication – treats more than just symptoms to the problem.
Often, these are the symptoms of anxiety:
- Nervousness, restlessness or being tense
- Feelings of danger, panic or dread
- Rapid breathing or hyperventilation
- Increased or heavy sweating
- Trembling or muscle twitching
- Weakness or lethargy
- Difficulty focusing or thinking clearly about anything other than the thing you’re worried about
- Obsessions about certain ideas, a sign of obsessive-compulsive disorder
- Anxiety surrounding a particular life event or experience that has occurred in the past, a sign of post-traumatic stress disorder
Therapy can help to uncover the underlying causes of your worries and fears, learn how to relax, look at situations in a new, less frightening way, and develop better coping mechanisms and problem-solving skills.
