"I’ve suffered from anxiety since I was a young child, but it was not until I was older that I recognized what it was and learned how to overcome it. I’ve realized that when my anxiety is under control, there are parts of it that have positively impacted my life. When at an appropriate level, my anxiety makes me motivated, causes me to plan ahead, and leads me to have greater empathy. With that being said, my goal with prescribing medication is not to change who you are, but to help you discover what your life can be like when your symptoms no longer hold you back. Medication will not cure all of your problems, as much as I wish that it could. However, in conjunction with therapy and lifestyle changes, you can be empowered to move ahead in building a balanced and meaningful life."
