Anxiety and stress is something we all experience in life. However, if you are overcome with anxiety and unable to function in a healthy manner, counseling may be necessary. In my sessions, I focus on anxious thought patterns that may or may not be rational. Cognitive Behavior therapy is used as a tool to help those who suffer from anxiety and stress to evaluate the source of stress and find ways to alieviate the intensity of the anxiety. Thought patterns are analyzed and new thought patterns are taught. Each client is encouraged to take steps to create a new thought pattern process, and pinpoint areas in their lives that need to be dealt with.

Our world can be a stressful place. Some days it takes everything we've got just to keep it between the ditches. I can help you find balance in your day-to-day life by giving you a safe place to talk through and troubleshoot your stressors. When anxiety has you in its grip, I can help you manage the symptoms and gently challenge the thoughts that hold you there.

I work with clients with anxiety by treating them with the utmost dignity. I believe anxiety comes from a chemical imbalance in the brain and is by no means the fault of the client. I give clients tangible ways to deal with their anxiety on a daily basis as well as look for root causes in their history. When root causes are found I work with the client to help solve the past issue so they can be more productive in their daily life.

Cognitive behavioral therapy has been shown to be as effective as medication for working with mood disorders like anxiety - and the great news is - you don't have to be on pills forever. Anxiety can creep up around sexuality issues, social issues, phobias, panic attacks, relationships and more - but you CAN learn how to identify those anxious, racing thoughts, challenge them, and replace them with something more balanced - and it doesn't have to take years!

Let's be honest - there are many experiences and relationships that bring a lot of anxiety and stress into our lives. We can feel uncomfortable in the presence of others, fearful that our vision for life won't unfold how we want it to, or the challenge of making progress and using our time and energy in productive ways. We all struggle with this at different levels, but I believe we can take hope that because of who God is and in a close relationship with Him, we have a future that is incredibly bright. I want to offer clarity on how this is true even when it doesn't feel like it in your life.

Anxiety and stress can be addressed in several ways. First, I will listen carefully to what you say and validate you by paraphrasing and summarizing what you have said. This will help you hear more clearly what you are thinking. We may explore ways that you are thinking and how they might be replaced with other thoughts in order to reduce or remove stress and anxiety. In case your feelings have been caused by a traumatic experience, if you are comfortable doing so, we might utilize some mindfulness exercises which may relieve the trauma and the resulting stressors. If necessary, I may suggest that you see a psychiatrist for medication or refer you to a specialist who is specially trained.

We are not born with anxiety. Anxiety and stress are a learned way to cope with difficult situations, and they actually do not help the situation, they just make it worse. Medication treats the symptoms, and can be helpful, but it does not heal anything. I want to work with you to help discover what is the reason you react this way and others don't. We can explore how you learned this, and discover if there is indeed a better coping mechanism available to you.

I utilize many tools for anxiety and stress management that my clients have found helpful and have significant evidence supporting their effectiveness. I practice guided imagery, mindfulness and meditation, self-care and lifestyle management, positive affirmations, and my newest fascination is Tapping or Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). I also teach deep breathing techniques, yoga stretches for relaxation, and might even include some dance therapy under the right conditions. Clients have reported more ease in falling asleep, greater ability to cope and focus throughout the day, and release from negative thought loops that used to dominate their mind.

Managing anxiety and stress not only involves discovering triggers that are the cause, but also in understanding and managing the brain. Our brain, in a valiant never-ceasing effort to keep us safe, spends much of its time sizing up the environment, hyper-vigilantly comparing the here and now to a vast memory bank of information stored under the category of 'danger and pain'. Triggers in the here and now are attached by the brain to more severe, or even traumatic events from the past, causing a "fight, flight, or freeze" response which overwhelms the central nervous system. I assist clients in recognizing these triggers and in managing their effects through therapy and relaxation work.
