Verna Nelson, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Scotts Valley, CA

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 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.

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)

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Our busy lives provide plenty of anxiety and stress. Some stress is normal, even helpful. But if you feel tense, anxious, or fearful most of the time, worry and obsess about the future, or feel psychological tension is beginning to affect your physical health, it may be time to get help. I use a variety of techniques to help people manage stress, including guided imagery, meditation, and EMDR, which is very effective for those whose anxiety stems from previous emotional wounds or trauma. No matter what approach we choose, I'll make sure you feel safe, supported, and free to explore the causes of your anxiety and stress so you can overcome them and take back control of your life.

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.

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.

We live in a high-anxiety culture where there are a lot of demands and expectations placed on us from either work, family, ourselves, or all of the above. Therapy can help you offload your worries so that you don't have to carry them alone. If you are experiencing more specific anxieties such as panic, phobias, and social anxiety, I can can also help you address and work through these so that you can live a more calm, fulfilling life.

Carrie Elizabeth Lin, MA, LPCC

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

Within Driving Distance of Scotts Valley, CA

I can help you overcome anxiety and live a calmer, more relaxed life. I practice what I call "holistic anxiety treatment," which means we look at physical, cognitive, relationship, and spiritual factors contributing to your anxiety. One size doesn't fit all, so I take an individualized approach to anxiety treatment. Your treatment plan might include dietary changes, exercise and movement, changing your thoughts and beliefs, meditation and other mindfulness practices, spiritual involvement, or family support. Depending on your circumstances, I might also help you learn to tolerate anxiety rather than just trying to get rid of it.

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.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within Driving Distance of Scotts Valley, CA

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.

Being alive means experiencing at least some anxiety and stress. There are "optimal" levels of anxiety and less-than-optimal levels as well. If you are experiencing too much anxiety, it can feel debilitating and compromise your ability to perform or be present in life. If you are experiencing too little anxiety, you might not feel engaged or care much. With optimal levels--which is what I attempt to assist my clients in achieving--you feel motivated but not hampered in your day to day experiences.

Anxiety and stress rob us from living a fulfilling life. There is hope. It does not have to be this way! Many times keys to our stress and anxiety can be hidden in our thinking patterns as well as things that we fear. When one begins to understand the anatomy of their fears, anxieties and stress, they can learn to take control of them and no longer let them take control. Having someone walk with you through the journey of confronting the anxiety, stress and fears you have can be comforting and allow you to develop the confidence you need to face life and its many problems more effectively.
