Stress & Anxiety
Stephanie Kinney, LIMHP, CMFT
Certified Marriage and Family Therapist
400 North Minnesota Ave, Hastings, NE
I work from a compassionate and empathetic approach when dealing with clients struggling with anxiety and stress. I use progressive relaxation exercises both in and out of session (homework) to help clients learn what a relaxed state of being feels like, and then help clients learn self-calming strategies. Time management training may be included, in addition to family of origin work in understanding origins of stress/anxiety. If needed, I may coordinate with client's physician in the event a psychotropic medication evaluation may be needed in addition to psychotherapy. Sources of stress will be identified and explored in therapy, in addition to challenging any cognitive distortions.
