Substance Use & Anxiety Therapy Services

Online Therapy

Using online sessions to provide anxiety therapy services using a confidential portal. 

Services Provided

Individual Therapy

A safe and confidential space where we can explore the roots of your anxiety and substance use concerns. Through open dialogue and evidence-based techniques, we’ll work together to unravel the patterns that are holding you back.

Mindfulness and Relaxation Techniques

Develop skills to stay present and manage the overwhelming emotions that often accompany anxiety. Mindfulness can help you regain a sense of control and tranquility in your life.

Evidence-Based Treatment

Using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) we’ll discover effective strategies to challenge and reshape those negative thought patterns that contribute to anxiety. You’ll learn how to replace them with healthier, more adaptive ways of thinking.

Treatment Specialties

Anxiety Therapy Treatment

Online therapy for anxiety sessions are grounded in the power of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Exposure Response Prevention (ERP). These proven methods offer more than just coping strategies; they provide tangible solutions that empower you to transform your perspective on anxiety. Together, we'll challenge negative thought patterns and embark on exposure exercises that gradually reduce fear and discomfort, allowing you to regain more control over your thoughts and emotions.

Problem Drinking and Drug Use

Maybe you're navigating questions about your relationship with substances, whether it's problem drinking or drug use, I offer a holistic approach centered on your unique journey. Using Motivational Interviewing and Mindfulness techniques, we'll work together to delve into the root causes of your choices. Our teletherapy sessions will provide a safe and nonjudgmental space for you to explore your motivations, understand triggers, and develop a deeper awareness of your patterns. Together, we'll experiment with strategies that foster a healthier relationship with substances, whether that means moderation, abstinence, or another path entirely.

Therapy for Adults in Recovery

Are you new to recovery and looking for more support? I provide a non-judgmental environment to help you address your challenges. We'll work towards healthier coping mechanisms and sustainable recovery.

Common Questions

We will work as a team to help you change thought processes, so you don’t keep repeating the same unhelpful thought patterns and behaviors. Think of it as changing your usual travel routes because your destinations have changed. (You found a new job; you’re going to a different school; you’ve switched grocery stores; etc.) You will learn and practice new coping strategies that can help you improve the way you manage thoughts and feelings for the better. You will have to do some work on your own, outside of sessions, but it’s worth it to improve your quality of life.

Our first session will typically last 60 minutes so that we can discuss your history and goals. We’ll meet weekly for the first four weeks, typically for 45 minute sessions. After that, we can discuss how often we’ll continue to meet. 

I am in-network with UnitedHealthcare, Aetna and Cigna. 

 

We will meet every week for the first four weeks to develop a good working relationship and gain momentum to work on your goals. Then we’ll discuss how often we will continue to meet.

If you won’t be using insurance the cost of a 50 minute session is $185. I can provide you with a superbill that you can file with your insurance company for possible reimbursement. 

One of the most important aspects of therapy is having a therapist that you can trust. You want to find someone who resonates with you. Often that means a therapist with authenticity, empathy, compassion and maybe a sense of humor. Do you feel heard and understood? That’s a good sign.

The number of sessions and the frequency necessary will vary depending on you and your goals. We will be regularly checking in during our sessions to discuss the changes you are making and adjust accordingly.

I offer teletherapy and provide virtual sessions to residents of Georgia. All you need is a private area free from interruptions and a good internet connection.

Call me or email me to schedule a free 10 minute phone consultation. We’ll see if we’re a good fit.
