Jill Silverman, LCSW

Licensed Psychotherapist

12625 High Bluff Drive, Suite 215, San Diego, CA 92130

I specialize in helping people through anxiety and stress, whether it be related to dynamics with family, career, or related to past trauma. People often have anxiety or panic attacks and feel that it is medically related, only to arrive at the hospital ER and find out that it is emotionally related. This is common, because anxiety attacks often affect heart rate and bodily sensations. I have tools to help clients overcome severe anxiety and stress. Clients often find relief once they are able to understand the source of their anxiety and what to do about it.

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.

Jennifer Costanza, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

2121 5th Avenue, Suite 214, San Diego, CA 92101

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. www.jennifercostanza.com

Stress & Anxiety

Roxanne Strauss, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

4025 Camino del Rio South, Suite 300, San Diego, CA 92108

A little anxiety or stress can be good for us. It motivates us to get to our work done, to study for an exam, or to help us recognize we are overwhelmed and need to slow down. When anxiety is problematic, it creates an unhealthy sense of well-being and it interferes with daily living. Because there are different forms of anxiety, and because often anxiety can occur with depression, I work with individuals to assess what kind of anxiety they may be experiencing, and then focus holistically on not only managing the symptoms of anxiety, but also gaining a better awareness of the biological, psychological, social, and spiritual aspects of anxiety.

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

San Diego, CA 92101

While most treatment approaches for anxiety and stress are effective on the surface, they don’t treat the real problem. Mantras, deep breathing, and rational dialogues about your fear being irrational rarely work---for most people don’t believe it or you! Imagine if you can trick the brain into changing without you telling your conscious mind that you are changing it? Problem with anxiety and stress is that the brain in this state knows you want to change it and it resists. Contact Kevin@kevinfleminphd.com for the ultimate stress and anxiety solution that will literally change your brain's autonomic nervous system patterns while you sit on your butt. 877-606-6161.

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.

Stress & Anxiety

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.
