Stress & Anxiety

Donna Westcott, M.Ed.

Resident in Counseling

Anxiety rings like an alarm bell next to your ear which no one else can seem to hear. It encompasses your mind, body, emotions, and spirit. In our counseling sessions, we will learn what sets off those alarms for you, what their message is, and how to de-activate the alarms by replacing them with more accurate and healthy thinking. We will use very specific activities designed to bring about these changes.

Anxiety is one of our natural defense mechanisms meant to help us prepare to face real danger. It can be an asset to us, but becomes a problem when we feel anxious without the presence of real danger. Counseling helps clients grow in their ability to notice their own real-time experience of anxiety, evaluate and replace the thoughts that reinforce it, and change the behaviors that keep the cycle of anxiety going. Clients will benefit from a clinical approach steeped in cognitive-behavioral therapy and an eye for the role of anxiety in a client's relationships.

When we can't control our thoughts, they can swirl around our head like a tornado. Sometimes it is so bad we feel light headed, our heart feels like it will beat right out of our chest, and we struggle to breathe. Even worse, we may begin to have panic attacks and now we are worried about when they will happen again. Anxiety, stress, and excessive worry can be difficult to stop if we don't have a strategy or plan. Cognitive therapy helps clients learn to understand how their own thoughts contribute to the symptoms of anxiety, and how to change those thought patterns to reduce the likelihood of occurrence and the intensity of the reaction. Let's work together.

Catherine Turner, M.Div., LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within Driving Distance of Ashland, VA

Whether it's from life's many responsibilities or a result of exposure to trauma, anxiety can quickly become all-consuming and destructive to one's life. Upon learning of my clients' goals for anxiety and stress management, I aim to introduce a variety of techniques that can be used on a daily basis. Some common methods used are mindfulness, guided imagery, grounding techniques, and creative expressions through art. Clients have benefited from therapy, especially in regaining control over the thoughts that had once put a stop to being productive and at peace.
