Anxiety and stress feel awful. Most people would do anything to take away those feelings.

There are many healthy ways to deal with anxiety and stress. We can explore these together to find strategies that work for you. Believe it or not, anxiety is learned behavior, and you can "unlearn" it with diligence and practice. You do not need to tolerate chronic stress and anxiety for the rest of your life.

I have found that anxiety is one of the most treatable forms of mental distress! Treatment is not easy, but it can help you manage your stressors. Life is full of stress, but it does not have to paralyze you. You have choices, even in the most debilitating of circumstances. How can I support you in the midst of your challenging situation(s)? Two heads are better than one in coming to a solution!

MA Professional Counselor

12 SE 14th Ave, Suite 203, Portland, OR 97227

Our culture fosters stress and, unfortunately, the number of anxiety-ridden clients I see is ever-growing. One of the biggest and foremost components I incorporate into treatment is the need for healthy living habits and self care. When properly tended to, this simple but powerful need can have a massive positive effect on many clients. Depending on the source of anxiety, there are many approaches that I might utilize to address this issue. It is always important to note the need for flexibility and openness as your therapist so that I can customize my approach to best fit your needs.

Do you struggle with chronic worry or intense fear of specific situations (e.g. social settings, panic attacks, flying, other people’s opinion of you)? Has your anxiety led to physical discomfort, stress, avoidance behaviors, depression? Anxiety can negatively impact all aspects of your life. Fortunately, through developing effective coping strategies and addressing negative thinking and behavior patterns, you can learn to manage your anxiety. I also use gentle, yet highly effective trauma-processing methods (e.g. EMDR, Brainspotting), to help you address the root cause of your anxiety. Feel free to contact me for a free consultation.

Do you find yourself fearful when tackling a new task? Are you burnt-out because the stress and pressure on you just seems too much? Do you find yourself saying "yes" when you want to say "no"? I will work with you to examine the roots of these stressful patterns and to find previously discounted or undiscovered strengths you possess. I will help you form stronger and more resilient boundaries so that you will experience a sense of choice and autonomy in dealing with others. I will help you transform anxiety to excitement using powerful tools such as EMDR and the Emotional Freedom Technique, so that you can lead a more harmonious, contented life.

Stress & Anxiety

Jeffrey Post-Holmberg, MA

Individual, Couples, Family Therapist

2080 NW Everett, St. Suite 202, Portland, OR 97209

Clients who I am privileged to work with, will often express a desire to talk about the stresses they are experiencing in their life. These stresses often are accompanied by anxiety. Today's world is, no doubt, a difficult place to navigate. Stress reduction, for many people, is an imbalance between what they are willing to accept and what they believe can or needs to be changed. I help them identify what part of their worries are about the past and which are about the future. We work together to establish a mindfulness approach to stress reduction which emphasizes the skill sets of consciously being in the present moment, through breathing and awareness of thought/body connection.

Do you feel overwhelmed often, easily irritated, worried, or fearful around other people or places? I use a body-centered psychotherapy that builds your awareness of how your mind and body keep you in a state of anxiety and stress when you need not be. Through learning mindfulness techniques you can learn to tolerate and transform your stress, feeling increased confidence and control to navigate your relationships, career and home life.
