Stress & Anxiety

Sherrie Pucket, LPC,NCC

Licensed Professional Counselor

5505 Foxridege Drive, Mission, KS

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.

6811 Shawnee Mission Parkway, Suite 102, Overland Park, KS

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.

Anxiety and stress can be debilitating, affecting all areas of life--school, work and relationships especially. Anxiety and stress are internally self-perpetuating, and can lead to panic attacks or anxiety attacks. Panic and anxiety attacks are scary and can feel like you're dying, making someone feel hopeless and helpless. However, therapy can provide significant relief from anxiety and stress. Through the use of talk therapy, yoga and conscious breathing, art and sand tray therapy, and EMDR; relief is possible. Therapy can provide the relief you're looking for, so you can finally rest peacefully, live life confidently and fearlessly, and finally take a deep breath and breathe.

Stress & Anxiety

Sherri Jacobs, M.S., LMFT, M.A., ATR

Marriage and Family Therapist, Art Therapist

InterUrban ArtHouse 8001 Conser, Suite 290, Overland Park, KS

Anxiety is defined as, "the real or perceived threat of death." While there are many minor things that might contribute to your anxiety, the brain and body often experience small issues as catastrophic. In our increasingly complex world, stress and anxiety seem to be the undercurrent of living in a way human beings have never experienced with constant stimulation, pressure and expectations. My observation is that this pressure seems to be happening simultaneously in every age group. Therapy can be an effective route to not only manage stress, but explore the building blocks in a person's mind, and life experience. I am also EMDR trained.

Stress & Anxiety

Adam Lynch, MA, MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

435 Nichols Rd., Suite 200, Kansas City, KS

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.

Alex Ehrsam, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

7211 W. 98th Terrace, Bldg 4, Suite 100F, Overland Park, KS

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.

Stress & Anxiety

Aaron Mitchum, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

10551 Barkley Suite 320, Overland Park , KS

I use Self Psychology (a branch of psychoanalysis that uses human developmental science, sustained empathy and the therapy relationship itself to understand and bring healing to problems). I work from a warm, empathic standpoint in which I try to enter your shoes and understand your experiences as you do, not as others do. Insight is not the main goal (although that certainly happens), rather formative moments of feeling tuned into, deeply understood and emotionally held are the goal. These offer new emotional experiences that really catalyze psychological growth and healing. Benefits include increased: feelings of vitality and realness, hope, self-esteem, emotion regulation, etc.

Stress & Anxiety

Brian Heydon, Ed.S., LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

8080 Ward Parkway, Suite 330, Kansas City, KS

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.
