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

Unfortunately with our incredibly fast paced society, anxiety and stress have become all-too-familiar struggles for all ages. People feel pressure from the many commitments in their lives, and with the beauty and curse of technology, we often feel we cannot get a break. It has become imperative that we learn ways of managing our anxiety and stress, and of slowing down our systems so that they do not get to a point of explosion. Many people enter into therapy at such a point, and we work hard to create a space where they can breathe and learn strategies for coping, as well as re-narrating old patterns.

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.

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....

Experiencing stress seems inevitable. However, when stress is overwhelming, we can develop anxiety, which can hinder us from participating in life in a full way. Our lives might get smaller, less satisfying, and we might feel that we are no longer in control. Anxiety often makes its presence known by uncomfortable physical symptoms in our bodies. Together, we will learn about these physical symptoms. We will explore how anxiety might have started and what triggers it. We will also develop strategies that shift your nervous system from anxiety, to a state of calm and connection with self, others, and the world.

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.

Registered Psychologist

In T2M 3N4 - Nearby to Rocky View County.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

In T2R 1E7 - Nearby to Rocky View County.

We live in a stressful, fast paced society in which many people wear their stress like a badge of honour. We are taught that being busy is a virtue. The problem arises when our bodies can no longer handle this continual, long-term stress. As humans we are built for occasional stress, as in, "incase of emergency break glass". We are not designed for long-term, unrelenting stress. All of this can lead to adrenal fatigue and burn-out. It can even become a medical issue if we let it go on for too long. If you notice yourself feeling tired all of the time, this is a sign to reach out for help. Message me today to book your appointment, I am here to help.

Everyone experiences stress and anxiety at different points. With the high number of competing demands in our society, often these feelings can become increasingly present and start to interfere with our daily life. They can invade our mind and body and cause us to experience a myriad of symptoms such as: constant worries, irrational fears, sleeplessness, muscle tension, rapid heart rate and muscle tension. I work to support those struggling to uncover, understand and address the roots of their anxiety. I also help them to learn a variety of stress-management, relaxation techniques and self-care techniques so they are better equipped to manage life's inevitable challenges in the future.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Anxiety sometimes feels like a normal piece of life, but often it actually is beyond what would be considered healthy. People may think that they can 'tough' through the pain or that it will eventually go away. Even if this is true, counselling can help expedite the process and teach coping tools you might not have previously had. Likewise, if your anxiety is severe, you don't have to continue living like that. Help and healing is possible.
