I work with clients with anxiety by treating them with the utmost dignity. I believe anxiety comes from a chemical imbalance in the brain and is by no means the fault of the client. I give clients tangible ways to deal with their anxiety on a daily basis as well as look for root causes in their history. When root causes are found I work with the client to help solve the past issue so they can be more productive in their daily life.

Cognitive behavioral therapy has been shown to be as effective as medication for working with mood disorders like anxiety - and the great news is - you don't have to be on pills forever. Anxiety can creep up around sexuality issues, social issues, phobias, panic attacks, relationships and more - but you CAN learn how to identify those anxious, racing thoughts, challenge them, and replace them with something more balanced - and it doesn't have to take years!

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.

Anxiety and stress can be addressed in several ways. First, I will listen carefully to what you say and validate you by paraphrasing and summarizing what you have said. This will help you hear more clearly what you are thinking. We may explore ways that you are thinking and how they might be replaced with other thoughts in order to reduce or remove stress and anxiety. In case your feelings have been caused by a traumatic experience, if you are comfortable doing so, we might utilize some mindfulness exercises which may relieve the trauma and the resulting stressors. If necessary, I may suggest that you see a psychiatrist for medication or refer you to a specialist who is specially trained.

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.

Brian Heydon, Ed.S., LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Location: 8080 Ward Parkway, Suite 330, Kansas City

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.

Olufemi Sharp, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor and Life Coach

Location: 7611 State Line Road, Suite 135, Kansas City

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.
