Stress & Anxiety

Jason Esswein, M.S., LMFT

Anxiety is an internal alarm system that gives us information about our internal state as well as possible danger in the external world. Often, anxiety is a signal of deeper, more intense emotions such as sadness, anger, and fear. It can also be a consequence of not living authentically. Once these deeper feelings are identified and expressed, they can be readily released. For example, when we say "Yes" when we really mean "No," we will often experience anxiety. In this case, the anxiety is providing us with a warning that we are not being honest (living authentically) with ourself and/or another. Therapy is the perfect place to explore this common emotion.

Is the weight of the world on your shoulders? Is it difficult to get up in the morning and face the day, even though it was difficult to fall asleep and turn off your mind the night before? Are your relationships suffering because you feel stressed and worried most of the time? A little anxiety can be a positive push toward action, but too much anxiety and stress are unhealthy and unhelpful. I can help you learn to de-stress with relaxation techniques and anxiety management. It doesn’t have to be this hard.

Do you have an unsettled feeling? A kind of constant rumbling under the surface that leaves you feeling jittery, agitated, exhausted. Anxiety can be normal and a good sign - being nervous before a test. But the kind of anxiety that debilitates you - interfering with sleep, job performance, parenting and relating can be helped and reduced or alleviated by seeing a psychotherapist. In understanding your thoughts and feelings, a therapist can help to target the underlying triggers leading to anxious feelings, providing relief and hope.

Stress and Anxiety are normal emotional experiences of life, yet they can be debilitating if not understood nor managed well, and the good news and hope is that the intensity of each emotion can be reduced substantially upon education, process, and learned skills. We all live with expectations of self and others which generates normal levels of stress yet with too much stress perspective, purpose and meaning can be compromised. It is easy to be under the control of anxiety and stress and not fully recognize this, yet what is hopeful is how the process can be reversed to discover how you can control your anxiety and stress appropriately.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Your stress may be triggered by job loss, illness, relationships or by "positive" stressors like a new job or a baby. I provide a solution-oriented and healing environment for people who are suffering from the stress of living a "real" life. I provide a place to change the way you talk to yourself so you will stop beating yourself up and start predicting and creating positive results in your, or your family's, future. We will join together to increase your ability to cope with stress and appreciate your strengths as a human being. You can increase your tolerance for making important changes, learn to accept uncertainty, and cope with the things in life that can't be changed.

Anxiety can range from mild stress that is manageable to overwhelming stress that turns into traumatic activation. Through our somatic and relational therapies, you can feel whole again. Together, we look for what strengths and abilities you have that can be built on. Somatic resources generate an awareness of the sensations in the body that feel pleasant and grounding for the client and help them mediate the debilitating symptoms of trauma. Often clients don’t recognize the symptoms of trauma and are dealing with anxiety, fear and depression on their own. Many trauma clients do not seek therapeutic assistance right away, either because they don’t take the traumatic experience seriously or they think that “time will heal” or because of shame and...(view profile to read more)

Psychotherapist, Marriage and Family Therapist

Do worries interfere with your quality of life? Is stress causing you to lose sleep? Are you uncomfortably restricted by your level of anxiety? Anxiety and stress are a normal part of life. But when they move beyond the ordinary into the overwhelming, they become an obstacle in your path. It's like that troll under the bridge - whenever you try to cross the bridge of your life, they rise up and threaten and you have to stop and back away. Therapy is a way to take a look at what overwhelms you and what can be done. I work with individuals and couples to sort out what stands behind the stress and anxiety, and what keeps you from inner peace. Call today for a phone consultation.

Anxiety, and related conditions, rob you of the joy of life. It often robs you of your sleep, and distracts you from life. Your relationships, friendships, career and health suffers. Many suffers also struggle with Depression resulting from their ordeal with anxiety or stress. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help alleviate the symptoms of Anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Panic Disorder, Agoraphobia, Simple Phobias, Generalized Anxiety, and stress. Many of my clients report feeling very comfortable and relaxed when in my office, and find relief from anxiety even for that brief session. I have a calming, optimistic presence, and tools to help you to find relief.
