Stress & Anxiety

David Jacobs, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

8950 Villa La Jolla Drive, B214-1, La Jolla, CA

Treatment for Anxiety and Stress involves exploring the nature of the present day stressors as well as the coping mechanisms of the client. I help people to process their feelings of being overwhelmed and this puts people in a better position to be able to take positive action for them. When emotionally overwhelmed, people are unable to take steps to improve their lives, which create a downward cycle. There are good (meaning justifiable) reasons that people feel overwhelmed and therapy provides a safe place to explore these issues. People who lacked sufficient care (through parental neglect/abuse) in childhood will lack adult coping mechanisms. People need help to explore these issues.
