Some amount of anxiety and stress is a normal and necessary reaction to life events and situations. Yet, too much or too little can create obstacles to living your life fully and peacefully. I can help you to learn and practice skills needed to manage anxiety and to improve interactions with people in your life. We can also work together to reduce, and in some cases, take the "charge" out of the intensity of the triggers that cause unhelpful anxious reactions. Different therapies we can use include to talk therapy, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and/or EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).

I help people work through and overcome painful experiences of stress and anxiety. I approach my clients with kindness and understanding and let them know that they will not be judged by me. By creating an open and trusting relationship, they will not feel humiliated or shamed. Together we will examine the depth of their problem and how it affects them mentally, emotionally, behaviorally and socially. We will explore the triggers underlying their anxiety and learn new skills to reduce their reactions. Clients learn to change faulty beliefs, to relax, to feel more secure and free, and to attain a calmness that they did not experience before.

Anxiety and stress can be debilitating for many people. Thankfully, there are proven effective treatments to help people overcome these conditions. I work in a model of therapy known as "Cognitive Behavioural Therapy." Using this we examine how thought process and perceptions can trigger anxiety and stress. Working together we will define specific techniques and tools that you can use to reduce both your anxiety and stress levels in order to get back to your daily life. Tackling these issues can take time and patience, but it is definitely less energy then living with these conditions on a daily basis.

If you are suffering from anxiety and stress, I help support you in learning and practicing mindfulness techniques that help address the brain's threat response, identify unhelpful thinking, and help you befriend yourself. You will become more able to maintain a compassionate relationship with yourself, and in doing so, you become more able to accept your experience as it arises, and drop the struggle of resistance. This is the path to peace, to being okay no matter what is going on in your life.

Anxiety has become almost an epidemic in our society, to the point that it can be minimized by others. In the meantime, you may be having catastrophic thoughts and feelings that are overwhelming you, and no one seems to understand! I can help. Working together, we can investigate your thoughts, feelings, and reactions that are getting in the way of living your life. I use evidence-based approached to help you determine what is serving you, and what isn't. As you make changes and/or develop new skills, I've got your back. It takes practice. It takes work. Are you ready? Get in touch today!

When you worry you suffer in advance for outcomes which have not yet happened and, in fact, rarely do happen. It is bad enough to suffer the bad things that really do happen without suffering needlessly. We will seek to strengthen faith and trust that the world is mainly safe for you. Stress is the result of overloading our coping competencies. We will talk about riding through anxiety attacks and techniques to reduce uncomfortable hyper vigilance. We will look back into your history to find the roots of anxiety and stress. We may use trauma relief strategies such as EMDR or Traumatic Incident reduction (TIR). Counseling for anxiety and stress should make you happier and more relaxed.
