Anxiety and stress seem to the two factors that are running most people's lives. Between, work, performances, home, family, friends, returning phone calls and emails and all the additional pressures of life, stress and anxiety can simply become overwhelming. Counseling and psychotherapy has an outstanding track record for helping people cope with their anxieties and stressors in life. The therapeutic relationship established by a professional counselor often substantially decreases and relieves the wave of anxiety that can paralyze anyone. Counseling along with if needed medical intervention will under most circumstance return needed control, comfort and success.

People rarely come to counseling when their anxiety first starts causing them problems. Most people try to handle it on their own and try the “white knuckle” approach until they are exhausted and overwhelmed.

Most days, everyone experiences anxiety and stress on some level. The problem arises when the anxiety begins to interfere with normal functioning and you become paralyzed to be more productive. Anxiety can be a specific fear (worries about safety/security) or more generalized where you just constantly feel “anxious” and do not know why. When you are in that state, it is hard to recognize the triggers, or what thoughts/behaviors may be exacerbating your symptoms. Therapy helps to uncover those patterns while also offering techniques to stop them from being debilitating, so you can move forward with a more satisfying, productive everyday life.

Within Driving Distance of San Pedro, CA

In treating anxiety, the most impotant issues is interupting the cycle of worry, obessing over worry, fearing the return of worry, and allowing worry to spread to every aspect of your life. Discriminating realistic reasons to worry from irrational reasons can help clients with excessive stress to cope. Interupting and redirecting thoughts of anxiety to more productive thoughts and activities will interupt the cycle that creates habitual anxiety. We will look at times you may over-react to triggers (be it an upcoming social situation, or a stumbling block that creates more stress and predictions of failure). We will take this path together. You are not alone.

Anxiety and Stress reactions aren't unusual or uncommon in today's world. Generally these reactions can range from mild to severe and can be debilitating. Stressors are rampant and how each person approaches a stressful situation is unique. First, I think it is important to meet with a doctor for a full workup to rule out any medical contributors (i.e. thyroid function). Second, I work to help clients identify specifics, what are they doing and what is going on an emotional,cognitive and behavioral levels. Once these patterns are clear and concrete this is calming . Third, learning can take place once a person is calmer and can go on to learning news ways of responding to difficulties.

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.

Conflict in relationships is inevitable and when couples cannot find resolution, anxiety builds. Often, this leads to shutting down or blowing up--both triggering behaviors that can drive a wedge between two people. As co-therapists, we help couples find ways to maintain differences while staying connected. Intimacy also triggers old unresolved issues that create stress. These old wounds have nothing to do with our partners. We help couples understand how these memories can interfere in the repairing with your partner.

The benefits of therapy for people who suffer from anxiety are the reduction of symptoms, and the development of greater well-being. Anxiety is a kind of friction among the moving parts of the self, an internal conflict that is distracting, depleting, and highly unpleasant. It is closely linked to stress, to boredom, and to fear of sadness. Rather than struggling, we can collaborate to turn toward the source of the anxiety and try to resolve it at the roots.

I’d like to offer you 3 quick tips on managing the stress or anger in your life. Although I’ve written more extensively on this in other publications, this is just a quick, short list of three things you can do to tone things down a notch and improve your life. First, make sure that you are exercising regularly. While you exercise, become aware of what is bothering you. As you focus on your stressors, let the physiological energy generated by your anger or angst be burned off by your body. Let the exertion cleanse you… body, mind and soul. This is what I call Anger Work. Second, use “On-the-Spot Tension Tamers.” These are helpful when you are in the middle of a conflict or stressful meeting....

Interupting and redirecting thoughts of anxiety to more productive thoughts and activities will interupt the cycle that creates habitual anxiety. We will look at times you may over-react to triggers (be it an upcoming social situation, or a stumbling block that creates more stress and predictions of failure). We will take this path together. You are not alone.

It can be hard for people who experience various challenges to have the confidence or desire to approach a professional. Not only we are generally too embarrassed to ask for help in unraveling our feelings, healthy functional people suffer the double stigma. Since they are used to being highly functional in most, if not all aspects of their lives, when they face unfamiliar emotional challenges it can be hard to accept or understand it. In many occasions it is not easy to say: hey, I am dealing with something that I don’t have the tools to resolve! I truly care about them and want the best possible results.

The benefits of therapy for people who suffer from anxiety are the reduction of symptoms, and the development of greater well-being. Anxiety is a kind of friction among the moving parts of the self, an internal conflict that is distracting, depleting, and highly unpleasant. It is closely linked to stress, to boredom, and to fear of sadness. Rather than struggling, we can collaborate to turn toward the source of the anxiety and try to resolve it at the roots.

Anxiety and Stress reactions aren't unusual or uncommon in today's world. Generally these reactions can range from mild to severe and can be debilitating. Stressors are rampant and how each person approaches a stressful situation is unique. First, I think it is important to meet with a doctor for a full workup to rule out any medical contributors (i.e. thyroid function). Second, I work to help clients identify specifics, what are they doing and what is going on an emotional,cognitive and behavioral levels. Once these patterns are clear and concrete this is calming . Third, learning can take place once a person is calmer and can go on to learning news ways of responding to difficulties.

I call this the “Leap of Faith.” You see, the more you can experience the vulnerability of fear, the more likely the chance that you will not experience the anxiety related to it down the road. Each time you face your fears, you gain more CONFIDENCE, and this confidence/faith is the key to everything.

Stress or anxiety don’t always get in the way, but sometimes they do. Learn to identify the sources, recognize how they stop you, and change the impact they have on you and your life. Learn how old patterns shape your self-image, self-esteem, and expectations, and discover new ways of dealing with that. Fear doesn’t have to stop you from having what you want in life. And, sometimes it’s a valuable asset, like knowing which is the lion and which is the lamb. Psychotherapy with me helps you to sort out when to listen to the fears and when they no longer apply. You’ll also learn coping strategies that can help when you’re caught up in the fear. Your fears don’t have to control you.

Debilitating anxiety can make simple tasks seem overwhelming vs. the normal anxiety of approaching something new outside of one’s comfort zone. Anxiety can freeze or it can motivate change. If you are experiencing anxiety that holds you back, blocks productivity, and fulfillment of everyday tasks and dreams, it is probably time to seek professional help. In a supportive therapy environment you can learn to prioritize tasks, reduce stress, build emotional resiliency, and reconnect to inner resources that nurture and guide. Learning to tackle obstacles in a grounded step-by-step way is important for survival in a fast-paced world vs. having circumstances dictate the course of life.

Anxiety, panic, and phobia treatment are OCAC's sweet spot. This is where we do 95% of our work. The other 5% is in related disorders. If you find your thoughts controlling you or find yourself unable to step away from what you know are irrational thoughts, there are solutions. Many patients hear “Just relax" from friends and family, and while momentary exercises like breathing or meditation may help some, they really only subside surface symptoms of underlying cognitions that really need to be addressed. The inability to “just relax” will often exacerbate anxiety further, and there is a reason. If your needs are beyond common stress management, our average treatment is 14 weeks.
