Daily stress and important life events can have a significant impact on our personal lives and relationships. I believe that having the ability to calm down and express our feelings can foster growth and joy in the midst of difficult circumstances. My hope is that you leave our time together feeling empowered so that you are able to find peace in the midst of whatever life event you are facing.

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.

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.

We live in a stress filled world and anxiety is a common coping tool. Being aware of our human inheritances, we can better distinguish between healthy and unhealthy anxiety. I use hypnosis and guided imagery to help my clients relax and to better manage their moods. I like the quote, "Worry is not preparation, but it is a magical elixir for avoiding catastrophe." I will help you distinguish between worry and preparation.

Anxiety can be debilitating when we are gripped with fear and worry. When working with my clients around their anxiety, I often begin by getting curious about what is underneath their anxiety. Is it a fear? Is it a threat? Is it a perceived threat or is it a real threat? Depending on what we discover, we then address the need. I work with each client around their specific needs and find manageable resources for them to use in their daily lives. While medication can be a helpful tool, there are other resources that may offer some relief.

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.

Anxiety is a normal reaction to a potential threat, however we can become anxious about issues that are not life threatening. Anxiety becomes a problem when the symptoms disrupt our daily activities or cause conflicts in our relationships. Anxiety also impacts our physical bodies and these symptoms (headaches, shortness of breath, stomach aches, fatigue, etc…) are often overlooked as something a therapist can help resolve. During therapy you will gain a better understanding about anxiety, what makes you anxious, how your body communicates, and strategies to overcome these emotions.

I apply Cognitive-Behavior and Solution-Focused practices when treating anxiety disorders. I evaluate the severity of the symptoms and work with the client to develop at treatment plan. If the anxiety is particularly severe I recommend both therapy and psychiatric treatment. I educate clients on how to recognize anxious reactions as they occur in the present moment. I encourage clients to keep a daily diary card that reports occurrences of attacks. I offer a number of relaxation techniques. Thought stopping is an excellent technique for anxiety disorders. Graded exposure is another great technique in taking small, gradual, increasing steps to challenge anxiety provoking situations.
