The first step in overcoming Anxiety is understanding how it impacts you on a daily basis. I will help you recognize your earliest warning signs that you are becoming anxious or stressed and teach you positive coping skills you can use to manage those feelings before they become overwhelming. If you struggle with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Social Anxiety, Panic Attacks, or Specific Phobias, I will use CBT & Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) techniques to help you learn how to face and conquer the very things that are causing that Anxiety. You can live a life where you can effectively manage your thoughts and feelings instead of feeling like they control you.

I have worked with many clients experiencing anxiety and stress in relationships with family, friends and colleagues or as a result of addiction and relapse, or health issues. Mindfulness practices are incorporated directly into my therapy sessions from the very beginning to allow my clients to begin to calm their overactive stress response systems and feel a reduction in their anxiety immediately. Over the long term, clients see the benefits of taking a moment to pause and reflect that they have a choice in how they respond in the moment to challenging interactions.

Stress, stress, everywhere. What is a stressor anyways? A stressor can be defined as anything that knocks the body out of homeostatic balance. A stressor could also be the anticipation (thoughts, memories, etc.) of a knock out of homeostatic balance. Our anxiety response does wonderful things short-term by mobilizing energy in the body. But this response did not evolve to be chronically activated as it often is in our fast-paced culture. Dr. Duke offers a combination of biofeedback and cognitive-behavioral therapy to enhance parasympathetic (calming) bodily responses and re-frame harmful thought patterns that contribute to stress and anxiety.

Anxiety is miserable but it's also one of the easier things to treat in therapy. Whether you are stressed out and worried about "everything" or if your anxiety has a compulsive side to it I can help. I enjoy working with anxious people because there is a lot of energy that can get channeled towards fast improvement. I initially approach anxiety work from a cognitive side as to how the thought processes generate the anxiety. Understanding the emotions underneath the anxiety is an important part of the process as well. I work with generalized anxiety (worriers), OCD, social anxiety, and specific anxieties. Believe it or not - anxiety work can actually be fun and there's often a lot of laughs.

Anxiety is probably the most common of human emotional/spiritual ailments, and can be powerful enough to overwhelm us. All of our anxiety comes from somewhere, and I help clients come to understand the sources of their anxiety and find the capacity to manage and overcome the negative and destructive forms of anxiety. I use a variety of approaches to address this concern, from psychological insight, to behavioral approaches, to spiritual resources. Greater freedom from anxiety is a very reachable goal.

Parenting a child with special needs often creates stress and anxiety in your marriage, social relationships and family dynamics.

When working with anxiety the first thing I'll do as your therapist is listen. I'll need you to tell me what is happening in as much detail as you feel comfortable providing.  The second thing I'll do is help to educate you on some of the neurology and mechanics behind this experience. And finally I'll teach some very simple relaxation techniques. There are many good books we can read together as well that offer good insight along side therapy.

OCD and anxiety disorders are treated with a combination of methods, but the bulk of treatment is done through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Exposure & Response Prevention (ERP). CBT works by exploring the root thoughts of your fears and anxieties, challenging those thoughts, and replacing them with thoughts that are more realistic. ERP works by creating a list of the situations that cause anxiety then, slowly exposing you to these situations for long enough time for the anxiety to subside. This method of treatment is mainly used for the treatment of OCD, Social Phobia and Specific Phobias, but is at times effective for other anxiety disorders.
