Working with anxiety is a specialty of mine. Arguably, in the field of psychology we know quite a bit about anxiety as compared many other presenting concerns. In my approach with anxiety we will often begin with interventions that address behaviours and thoughts. Starting in this way will generally lead to effective symptom management in a few months’ time. Subsequently we can begin to work through past experiences that keep anxiety present. It has been my professional experience that exploring these emotional experiences increases the likelihood of sustainable symptom management in the long term.

We all know what anxiety feels like. Our heart pounds before a big presentation or a tough exam. We get butterflies in our stomach during a blind date. We worry and fret over family problems or feel jittery at the prospect of asking the boss for a raise. However, if worries and fears are preventing you from living your life the way you'd like to, you may be suffering from an anxiety disorder. There are six major types of anxiety disorders, each with their own distinct symptom profile: generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, phobia, post-traumatic stress disorder, and social anxiety disorder. The good news is there are many anxiety treatments and self-help stra....

Registered Prov. Psychologist

In T3G 5G8 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

In order to effectively manage anxiety, worries and stress, one needs to learn to reduce and relax the amygdala’s fear and panic response. Adopting a mindfulness mindset, paired with stress reduction techniques, are one of the best antidotes to being carried away or paralyzed by stress, worries and anxiety. By practicing mindfulness-based activities and tools specifically designed to combat and better manage the effects of stress and anxiety, you will release the heavy burden they can cause. You will learn how to more peacefully coexist with your thoughts and your emotions in the present moment, thus creating a state of inner calm to help contain and lower your stress, worries and anxiety.

In T3E 7V3 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

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)

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.

It is not surprising that lots of folks are quite anxious and stressed in this complex world of ours. However, when anxiety interferes with a person's peace of mind or ability to live effectively, intervention with a therapist is often needed. Anxiety can be a result of prior trauma or other negative experiences or exposures. I offer talk therapy, EMDR and other strategies to help get a handle on and reduce the hold anxiety has on your life.

Registered Social Worker

In T2X 1M2 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

Working with clients for 15+ years, I worked extensively with clients who experience anxiety and depression. In my experience anxiety and stress are two different things. Stress is being unable to adequately handle a situation that goes beyond our ability to cope. Stress is normal given an entirely new situation we are faced with such as a new job, etc. This usually requires learning some new coping skills. However, anxiety is a sustained feeling of unease that in its extreme can be experienced as panic or the inability to calm oneself. Often I have found that anxiety that has been sustained for a long time is generally connected to trauma and is best healed by working with the body.

In T1S 1A8 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

I work with adults , teenagers, and children experiencing anxiety. The method of treatment I primarily utilize is Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). I will be running groups for children ages 8-12 and teenagers ages 13-17 (or almost 18) one to two times per year, depending on interest). I also incorporate stress-reducing techniques which will be demonstrated in session. I also work with individuals experiencing burnout, including work-related and caregiver burnout. Most clients state that they do notice a difference in as little as three sessions.

Anxiety is one of the most common mental health issues for children and teens today. I work with children so they can better understand their anxiety, and teach them how to challenge anxious thoughts and relieve distressing symptoms.

Anxiety can be very distressing and lead to all sorts of physiological symptoms such as heart palpitations, sleep issues, fear, panic, and shortness of breath. Often times the source of the anxiety can be discovered by carefully examining our thought processes and discovering what past or future events are causing us distress. Sometimes learning new techniques of breathing and mindfulness can help soothe us when our anxious mind kicks into gear.
