Identifying that there are aspects of the 'self' that require attention is the first step in reducing stress and anxiety. The ability to self-reflect and acknowledge that shifts need to be made are the building blocks of change . Making sense of meaning and purpose in one's life is linked to resiliency as is understanding the difference between internal versus external locus of control. These are all things I explore with my clients suffering from stress and anxiety.

Most people do not like feeling anxious or stressed. People are not saying I am glad to be stressed or anxious. What do we do when this happens. We need to process it and for most people counselling is a place for processing. Along with processing stress and anxiety comes a deeper longing to to be heard and validated and to sometimes be given new skills or strategies. What ever you need whether an ear to listen, heart to understand or ideas for coping with it I can provide it in comfortable environment.

Anxiety and stress can make it hard to think clearly, make decisions and find enjoyment in every day activities. While living with some stress is normal, anxiety can get in the way of living your life the way you want. It is difficult to overcome the impact of anxiety without professional help. Many of my clients have tried to cope on their own or with some help, but find that the anxiety never truly goes away. I can help you or your child in identifying the underlying causes of your anxiety, and to learn how to successfully cope with life's challenges and to live more fully.

Everybody suffers from stress at some points and key to reducing stress is to notice it by increasing our somatic awareness skills and engaging in habits and practices that help regulate the nervous system. Based on Internal Family Systems, an individual contains a multiplicity of relatively discrete minds, each of which has qualities that play a valuable role within the personality. So the next time something happens and you stress out, ask yourself: is this all of me that is stressed out, or just a part of me? Research suggests that this approach of mindful awareness, noticing the part that is stressed out, instead of just being fully in the stress, has a regulatory affect on the nervous system. I use, Internal Family Systems, CBT and tapping to improve your emotion regulation skills.

How do you know if you are experiencing 'normal' stress or have crossed the line into the 'isolating' world of anxiety and panic? Alongside compassionate and non-judgemental care most of us just need some extra support and helpful tools to help weather what can often be a life-long journey. Special emphasis is put on understanding internal and external cues of anxiety and stress.

Having feelings of anxiety is a natural human response to stress. However, when anxiety brings constant high levels of agitation, feelings of having no control, avoiding or suppressing your emotions, or fear of fear itself, anxiety becomes debilitating. Therapy, using emotional focussed and attachment models, will help you understand where in your life experiences these overwhelming emotions were established. The goal of therapy is to develop emotional balance and the ability to manage your environment and your vulnerabilities in a secure and healthy way.

The pandemic has changed the world, greatly increasing stress and anxiety for most individuals. I am passionate about helping people navigate the new "normal" as they come out of the aftermath of the pandemic. This may look like finding life/work balance, focusing on self-care, regrouping, or rebuilding certain aspects of their lives and relationships. With general anxiety, teaching self-soothing, self-regulating, or introducing mindfulness techniques can be helpful in combating stress and easing anxious thoughts and behaviours.

Vancouver, British Columbia V5R 6G4 | 7789555179

In my professional and personal experience I have found that problems with anxiety, stress, depression, and anger issues are often overlapping. Many people feel mixed emotions of fear, worry, pressure, frustration, guilt, shame and low self worth. Unfortunately we have a tendency to doubt our abilities and our value which can quickly become a 'self fulfilling prophecy' and cause us to judge ourselves harshly, and/or isolate from others. This can become a cycle but it can often be broken by speaking openly with a professional who is competent, kind and encouraging. I am diligent in helping clients identify the false core beliefs and establish new beliefs that empower them again.

Does it sometimes feel like anxiety is a monster that seems to have control over your life? That stress has a stranglehold on you? That everything you do is organized around avoiding the intrusion of these awful feelings? That you feel so powerless to change any of it that you are ready to explode. And sometimes are afraid you will. Feelings of anxiety are incredibly uncomfortable, intense, overwhelming at times and even terrifying. They can overwhelm our thoughts leaving us unable to think about nothing more than worries we have about the future and what could happen, or horrible reruns of what has already happened in the past. We begin to turn all our resources toward avoiding these thoughts and feelings. The more effort we take to avoid feeling...(view profile to read more)

When the body and mind have learned that a calm internal state is not safe, it remains in a state of alert, alarm, fear, or terror to meet it's needs. I believe anxiety is a coping style that has helped keep you safe and alive in the past, but might no longer be helpful or necessary. I can help you better understand your experience, regulate and calm, and adopt new ways of coping with stress.

Life can be stressful. Our natural reactions to an environment which is perceived as unsafe is anxiety. Is your world unsafe? Or do your natural reactions cause you to overestimate the danger in the world? Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy is an evidence-based approach which has been shown to be just as helpful (or more) than medications. Learn some skills which you can use for the rest of your life to gain better control over your anxiety.

Everyone feels anxiety at some point in their lives but when it starts to interfere with your life, counseling can help. Although anxiety can feel debilitating, it is treatable. People with anxiety don’t always share the same symptoms, they vary from person to person. Therapy will help you to reclaim your life and function in a chronically stressful world. If your anxiety is affecting your life and you feel that it’s time to start taking anxiety-reducing medications, learning about the anxiety therapy options in Calgary that are available and trying some anxiety management techniques may be a viable alternative.

I approach anxiety differently from many therapists. Instead of struggling to fight against the anxious thoughts and feelings, I encourage people to explore what is feeding and maintaining them. They develop tools and strategies to move forward despite their paralyzing thoughts and feelings. We learn how to change behaviour based on what is most important to us rather than continuing to be held hostage by stress, panic and anxiety. This values-driven approach can guide behaviour change long-term. I believe that it is only through acceptance and thoroughly understanding our feelings that changes can really happen.

Anxiety as a result of stress is one of, if not the major contributing factor to poor health in most areas of people lives. If you have ever been tense before an exam or a visit to the dentist, you have a felt anxiety. Increased heart rate, sweating, rapid breathing, dry mouth, & a sense of dread are common. Changing this involves cognitive & behavioural approaches. Cognitive change is understanding how thoughts contribute to symptoms and how to change thought patterns to reduce the intensity of your anxiety. And behavioral changes involve using techniques to reduce or stop any undesired behaviors that are a result of the anxiety you have been experiencing.

Registered Psychologist

2003 - 14 Street N.W., Suite 105, Calgary, Alberta T2M 3N4 | 403-630-7595

Anxiety is a normal, human response to stressful events that we each experience at times ... like delivering a speech (or presentation at work or narrowly avoiding a car accident. It becomes a problem when we feel anxious a LOT, or our response is out of all proportion to the situation, or we avoid the provoking situation/thing, and it interferes with our day-to-day lives. Anxiety is treatable. I can help you reduce your stress response, manage your physiological responses (like breathing), change your thinking about the feared event, and build your repertoire of self-care and relaxation-enhancing activities -- all of which will reduce your anxiety and enhance your quality of life.

Anxiety becomes a problem when it causes so much distress or impairment that we are not able to function optimally in our day-to-day lives.

If you feel that this describes your difficulties, we can help. We help our clients learn to use relaxation and breathing techniques to gain greater mastery over their physiology, and to identify and change catastrophic and black-and-white thinking patterns that perpetuate anxiety and excessive worries.
