Registered Psychologist

In T1S 1B3 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

Often times symptoms of anxiety are misinterpreted as some other physical ailment. I frequently receive doctor referrals for clients who sought medical treatment and who are surprised to learn that they are not experiencing medical problems. My approach to anxiety is demystify the anxiety response and to help my clients develop practical cognitive-behavioural strategies to reduce the perceived threat in their environment while developing effective coping strategies to bring about a state of relaxation and control.

Anxiety. Fear. Worry. Stress. Do these words seem all to familiar in your life? When faced with a multitude of responsibilities, long "to-do" lists, relationship demands, and meeting the expectations of others and ourselves, we may find ourselves unable to function, let alone enjoy life. We may be filled with self-doubt, especially when playing the "comparison game." Some people turn to substances such as alcohol and drugs to cope. Others work too many hours or engage in destructive or compulsive behaviors. Fortunately, there are healthy and productive ways to break the hold anxiety has on you and meet life on your terms. Let me help you to manage life demands and find peace again.

Registered Psychologist

In T3H 4H9 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

Anxiety and stress can be effectively managed with a shift in perspective and behaviours used to cope. I help clients learn the strategies necessary to change the meaning they make of situations and master physiological tension and anxiety. It is impossible to be relaxed and anxious at the same time. Then clients are taught to master their thinking and free themselves from stranglehold of anxiety and stress.

Stressors and anxiety are a normal part of life. It is how you respond to the changes that life sends your way that makes the difference between being resilient or unhealthy. Distinguishing between unhealthy and healthy anxiety and learning to effectively manage stressors are key life skills. Also what we tell ourselves about a given situation has a lot to do with how we manage it. Together we will explore your stressors and work at eliminating your ineffective beliefs and developing ways to manage difficult situations more effectively. .

Fear, doubt, worry? Butterflies in the stomach? Anxiety affects 5% of the population, and is one of the oldest and most common mental health challenges around. 60% of the physical issues that take people to a doctor's office are related to stress. Many people want symptom relief, which I do, but how it shows up in your life is individual to you. I explore your life and work with you to unearth 'holistic' roots that may be keeping it in place.

At the core of anxiety and stress treatment method is helping the body get back to a natural balance. It's important to address what the body needs to get help including the balance of the nervous system, the foods we eat, exercise, sugar intake, meditation, etc. It's also important to address our thought life, feelings that feed our thought life, our core fears, our entrenched beliefs and our behaviours that follow from our present distorted and negative thoughts. A road to recovery is changing how our fear pathways are being rewired to produce healthy and calm thoughts and results. An exciting pathway to recovery using a cognitive behavioural approach of treatment (CBT).

Counselling Psychologist

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)

Registered Psychologist

In T2P 0B3 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

Stress is a normal, adaptive response to changes in our circumstances and/or environment. Stress can act as a motivator, however when it becomes chronic and overwhelming, it can negatively impact our relationships ourselves, family and friends, our work interests and hobbies, and increase our risk of the development of other psychological and physical health concerns such as anxiety and depression. I assist clients in resolving their anxiety by identifying and understanding symptoms, identifying triggers that increase symptoms, and developing practical day-to-day strategies that provide both short-and-long term relief.

Registered Provisional Psychologist

In T2C 4J2 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

Struggling with anxiety and stress is very difficult. It influences every area of life. There are many factors that cause anxiety and stress. Therefore, when treating someone who is struggling with anxiety I start by examining their whole life to get a good understanding of all the factors that are contributing it. To reduce stigma and to help them understand themselves I will explain what is happening in their brain when they are anxious. The goals of the sessions will be focused on addressing their beliefs about themselves, others and the world, developing helpful coping strategies and emotional processing and regulation.

In T2V 2Y6 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

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. Fears and worries can become so intense that they interfere with our decision-making, work performance, ability to travel, try new things, or develop and maintain strong social connections. 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. We can help you feel like you are back in charge of your life. Call us today at 403-255-8577 to book and appointment or gain more information.

In T2M 0M6 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

Anxiety and stress seem so common today, that they may seem to be unavoidable. I can tell you that you will be able to change the way you feel. At it's heart, anxiety is a warning system that something is wrong, but if it dominates your life, often you can't tell the difference between a minor blip and a major catastrophe. It's all overwhelming. Stress to some extent motivates you, but over a certain threshold can paralyze you. I have worked for many years with anxiety and stress, and will help you to negotiate through the challenges of bringing them back within your control. You can develop the understanding and skills to thrive in a challenging world.

Registered Psychologist

In T2M 3N4 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

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.

Healthy anxiety is a transient response to stress. It prompts us to use coping skills. Sometimes anxiety becomes persistent, unreasonable and excessive, even to the point of a panic attack. The cause may be overwhelming stress, abuse, separation or loss, or a traumatic event. Unhealthy anxiety can lead to great distress, difficulty with daily life, relationship problems, avoidance of people, places and situations, and time-consuming habits. Treatment can help you: • develop strategies to manage stress and anxiety • conquer worrying • relate to others in healthy ways without fear of rejection or being evaluated negatively • recover from past trauma • get back to living life
