I have extensive experience in assisting clients suffering from anxiety and stress. Often a trauma, large or small, is undermining the client and his or her self-esteem, which then contributes significantly to anxiety and stress. I often use a specialized treatment for anxiety called EMDR or Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing. This therapy is non-invasive, brief and highly effective. I combine this treatment with other Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Anxiety is one of the worst feelings to be living with, and there is effective treatment available. Please visit my website to watch a movie about EMDR.

Stress can be good in small amounts. It can be motivating and is necessary for growth. The problem arises when an individual's tolerance to stress is less than the amount of stress being exerted on them. This is when an individual needs to consult with others to develop new stress management tactics, and increase overall emotional competence. Anxiety is a chronic form of the stress, and can exhibit itself in generalized symptoms, such as stressing over individuals and circumstances that do not directly or indirectly relate to the individual.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

5100 Marlborough Dr., San Diego, CA 92116

I have special expertise in working with anxiety and stress. With anxiety, it is important to find ways to calm and soothe the nervous system. I offer a wide variety of tools to help train your body to relax. Finding activities to decompress, have fun and nurture yourself are important in order to cope with a stressful environment. There is usually a good reason that the anxiety, nervousness, fear, or worry is there. Anxiety can be a result of PTSD, and I use special trauma therapies such as EMDR, EFT, and AIT that process and release the negative events and associated feelings and beliefs. It is possible to be free of your anxiety and cope better with your stress.

Fredric Seldin, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

7840 Mission Center Court, Suite 102, San Diego, CA 92108

Anxiety is usually a signal of danger that can be triggered by a relationship or some other type of social situation, or it can originate from internal thoughts and feelings that we are unaccustomed to coping with. In either case, anxiety can lead us to become immobilized and feel helpless to cope with ourselves and/or our social environment. First, I help my patients regain a sense of control over themselves and their lives. Second, I help them understand the roots of their distress so they will be better equipped to deal with anxiety provoking events in the future.

Often times, anxiety and stress can be caused by transitions or events in our lives that become difficult to manage. Sometimes they are triggers that we can change or remove, and sometimes they are just an inevitable part of living. Regardless of the cause, talking through anxiety and stress with a trusted professional can help create the mental space needed to deal with the issues.

Peter Lambrou, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

12625 High Bluff Dr., Suite 104, San Diego, CA 92130

I see anxiety conditions as unproductive responses to stress. While there are predisposing factors, the catalyst for triggering anxiety, fears, even phobias is stress. I focus on 4 basic and proven factors: 1) Psychoeducation - understanding what's happening in your mind and body that causes anxiety and stress; 2) Relaxation training - providing you with a wide range of ways to relax and de-stress, not just deep breathing, but many; 3) Cognitive (thought) changes - learning how to change unproductive thinking to productive - Stopping the What ifs and a dozen others; 4) Lifestyle/behavioral changes - balancing life is vital - sleep, nutrition (stop caffeine), exercise, and assertiveness.
