We live in a high stress culture. Our bodies were designed to deal with short term threats, but in prolonged stress they are unable to recover properly. Furthermore, our bodies may be "programmed" to be more sensitive to stress based on our childhood experiences and even the stresses and traumas of our parents and grandparents. Dealing with prolonged stress and anxiety requires a multifaceted approach: understanding the true sources of the stress, changing patterns of thinking, and adopting lifestyle habits that support physiological recovery and contribute to health and well-being. With the right supports and habits, you can let go of stress and have a healthier and more satisfying life

You can’t sleep, it’s hard to concentrate, you’re quick to anger and irritable all the time. At its worst anxiety and stress can lead to feeling unable to breathe and wanting to jump out of your own skin: system overload. Stress is known to increase the risk of emotional, mental and physical problems. Anxiety clues us in to the need to take care of whatever is causing us distress such as unresolved emotions, negative thoughts, unhealthy behaviours, or unsupportive relationships. I help you identify, clarify and resolve distress and anxiety so you can regain a sense of optimism, balance and enjoyment.

Residential Addiction Program

Edmonton, Edmonton, Alberta T6E 4Y9 | 780-809-0684

Anxiety disorders commonly coexist with addiction tendencies. Anxiety can severely inhibit a person's life, causing them to feel an irrational amount of panic, fear and other negative emotions in any given circumstance. Severe anxiety may influence a person to avoid leaving their house, or to become paralyzed in situations they interpret as stressful. Many people who struggle with anxiety will try to self medicate with alcohol or drugs, which ultimately makes their symptoms worse. A dual diagnosis of addiction and anxiety requires special treatment considerations; the kind that Valiant Recovery provides.

Anxiety and Stress are the norm in today's world. Our fast-paced society pulls our attention in many directions and often away from ourselves. Being disconnected from our feelings, needs and wants is often a cause of anxiety. Mindfulness-based counselling is a powerful way to have us create an island of sanity for ourselves amidst the speed of our lives. By learning to reconnect with ourselves amidst the busyness of life, we are put back into relationship with our hearts and what is truly meaningful to us.

[NOTE: MY OFFICE IS IN CALGARY -- I DO VIDEO SESSIONS ELSEWHERE IN ALBERTA]. Anxiety and stress are two conditions that have treatments that work. Cognitive behaviour therapy, desensitization therapy, and hypnotherapy (all of which I practice) are often tremendously helpful. I have been a psychologist for 31 years, and I can help.

Registered Psychologist, Certified Hakomi Therapist

My approach to working with anxiety and stress is body focused. Most people can "feel" anxiety and stress in their bodies thus I use the body's stress cues to teach us what the limits are. I would focus on listening and learning the body's cues and then teaching clients' how to physically "bring yourself down" from the elevated state of arousal that anxiety and stress cause.

Registered Psychologist

9690 182 Street, Edmonton, Alberta T5T 6M1 | (780)604-8704

Although anxiety is a natural part of life, it can escalate and begin to interfere with functioning. In these cases, I assist clients to learn ways to gain more control, such as by learning to relax the body, think in ways that do not create additional anxiety, process past experiences that contribute to the anxiety, and identify triggers so that alternate coping strategies can be used. I also work with clients to establish healthy stress management strategies, through exercise, social support, self-care, assertiveness, healthy expression of feelings, and appropriate life balance, so that clients have an overall sense of calm and well-being.

Canadian Certified Counselor

Stressful situations can trigger anxiety, but I generally view stress as a group of external factors that an individual finds overwhelming, and anxiety as a physical symptom of internal pain or fear. In my practice, therefore, I treat these two issues separately: helping you to identify those events or situations that overwhelm you and put into place strategies to manage stress. I will work with you to understand the driving force underneath your anxiety symptoms so that they become a useful tool to alert you to your unique inner experience.

Anxiety and stress are experienced as very distressing and can become debilitating. They are often signs that we need to make some changes in our lives and find more balance. Fortunately there are many ways to combat anxiety and stress. Everyone is unique and counselling is modified to meet the individuals needs of each person. Starting to identify alternative ways of approaching stresses enables you to make changes that relieve anxiety so you can become more focused and peaceful.

Stress and anxiety often get in the way of how and who we want to be. Stress can trap us where we are at, keeping us from growing, and anxiety can leave us crippled as we face the future. However, stress and anxiety happen for a reason. Through approaching our stress, mitigating the effects and learning ways to calm our systems we can both overcome our anxiety and insulate ourselves to future stress.

My approach to treating anxiety is based on learning skills and strategies to help you accept instead of get rid of your anxiety. As you stop trying to fight against feeling anxious you will notice that all of your anxiety symptoms become easier and easier to manage. Anxiety is kind of like quick sand the more you fight against it the worse it gets.

Anxiety and stress are normal, healthy and motivating in the right amounts. However, when people come in for these issues, it's usually because the immense stress they are under prevents them from living their best life, and / or is causing harmful effects to the body and mind.
