Stress & Anxiety

Sue Shepard, MFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Mission Viejo, CA

People rarely come to counseling when their anxiety first starts causing them problems. Most people try to handle it on their own and try the “white knuckle” approach until they are exhausted and overwhelmed. Often life becomes unmanageable and depression sets in when anxiety is not dealt with. Anxiety commonly focuses on illogical things that may seem foolish or kind of crazy, so you have kept these to yourself. Don’t keep struggling alone. Call me so I can help you reduce the hold anxiety has on you and restore freedom to live your life fully again. Contact me at 714-751-0888 and I promise I won't think you are crazy.

When stress and anxiety get out of control, life can become agony. We can become irritable, irrational and lack the focus we need to enjoy our life. I help you develop better ways to cope with the stresses in your life and to make use of anxiety in order to improve your day to day situation and life. Not all anxiety is bad. But when it leads to panic, loss of sleep, and physical problems, there needs to be intervention.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Clinical Psychology Doctor

Within Driving Distance of Mission Viejo, CA

Counseling for Anxiety & Stress involves a combination of addressing the external, situational stressors and the client's internal responses to those stressors. I work with my clients to determine where they have control and how they can better exercise that control to reduce anxious feelings, and how to more effectively handle those situations in their lives that are beyond their direct control. I teach clients new stress management skills, practice creating and maintaining healthier boundaries in stressful relationships, and provide new ways of thinking about circumstances to reduce anxiety.

Stress & Anxiety

Piper Walsh, Ph.D

Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Mission Viejo, CA

Is worry or panic disrupting your life? While anxiety is a normal reaction to stress, high levels of sustained stress can be disturbing and can cause distress that interferes with a person's ability to lead a normal life. Many people who suffer from anxiety feel alone and different from others. They may be isolating, socially, experiencing panic, struggling with constant worries, or obsessing over concerns they have little control over. I assist people with anxiety to overcome fears, identify the sources of anxiety, and learn strategies to reduce and manage stress. But most of all, I help them reclaim their peace of mind.
