Stress & Anxiety

Adam Lynch, MA, MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

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

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.

Brian Heydon, Ed.S., LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

8080 Ward Parkway, Suite 330, Kansas City, MO

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.

Danience Moreland, MA, LPC

License Professional Counselor

7611 State Line Road, Suite 135, Kansas City, MO

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.

Anxiety has the power to take over your life if you let it. The never-ending struggle to control and/or avoid your anxiety can paralyze us even as it makes us ever more helpless. I can help you take back your confidence and control. Together, we can identify, challenge, and change thinking errors that are giving your anxiety control over you. With well researched methods and techniques, I have helped patients and clients overcome all sorts of maladies related to anxiety including Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Hoarding, Hair Pulling, Social Phobias, and Generalized Anxiety. I have also helped multiple patients gain success over anxiety triggered and driven by traumatic experiences.

Stress & Anxiety

Sherrie Pucket, LPC,NCC

Licensed Professional Counselor

5505 Foxridege Drive, Mission, MO

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.

Stress & Anxiety

Jessica Willemsen, MSW, LSCSW, LAC, LCSW, CTS

Clinical Social Worker and Addiction Counselor

6901 Shawnee Mission Pkwy, Suite 219, Overland Park, MO

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.

Cheryl Pendell, MA, LPC, NCC, CPT

Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Play Therapist

1201 NW Briarcliff Parkway, Suite 200, Kansas City, MO

If anxiety and stress are keeping you from enjoying life to the fullest we need to explore the source of both and process together ways in which you can reduce your stress levels or find ways to cope until your circumstances change. It is important to me that you feel that someone understands what you are going through and how difficult your anxiety makes your life. You will benefit from my work with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy that is designed to reduce anxiety. This approach is proven to give you tangible tools to utilize to create a more comfortable life for you. I provide a warm and caring place for you to feel supported while you are going through this difficult time.

Stress & Anxiety

Judy Gardner, MS, BSN, RN, LPC, NCC

Licensed Professional Counselor

656 SE Bayberry Lane, Suite 105, Lees Summit, MO

I approach the treatment of anxiety and stress from a bioneurological approach. I begin with obtaining a thorough history, and determine client goals. In most circumstances, I teach about what anxiety and stress are, and the effects on the body. I then teach coping skills using cognitive behavioral therapies, mindfulness practices, and EMDR. My goal for my client is self-regulation, and obtaining the tools to manage their stressors independently. The length of treatment depends upon the number of stressors, length of time the client has had the symptoms, and overall health of the client. This is one of my favorite areas to treat, because of client success.
