Residential Addiction Program

Vancouver, Vancouver, British Columbia V6C 3T3 | 604-998-4688

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.

Most of my clients over the past twenty plus years have dealt with some form of anxiety and stress. There are many helpful approaches to managing these such as mindfulness and breath awareness, but I have found that often the greatest healing comes from learning to trust one's self and the process of life. Listening to one's deepest self and learning to express one's truth verbally or creatively, may also help the person transform their anxiety and live with greater energy and joy. As with most issues, each individual is unique, as is the approach that is called for.

Commercial Drive, Vancouver , British Columbia V5L 3X9 | 778 323-9667

Clients can expect a safe, warm and caring environment in which to express their own personal thoughts, and feelings. Although clients are the expert of their own lives I help them gain insight into what they can't see. I often use CBT to help clients find new ways of coping wth many different types of anxiety. I also use mindfulness and grounding activities to help clients feel more settled. In general clients find that after counselling for a time they experience either less anxiety or anxiety less of the time.

We live in anxious and stressful times. Although anxiety is an expected and adaptive reaction to stress, it can become a problem when it limits our ability to work, socialize, and enjoy life. The good news is we know that evidenced-based techniques can significantly reduce anxiety and help cope with stress. Our reactions to stress can impact all areas of life including work, relationships, and general well-being. I want to help you manage the current stress in your life, and develop resilience to make it easier to rebound from future challenges.

Anxiety, panic, and stress often show up as tension or unpleasant physical sensations in the body as fear and other emotions are held back. Trauma, relationship problems, losses, and attachment issues are often the hidden source of emotional pain. To resolve anxiety and panic, I use a mind-body approach which integrates cognitive, emotional, and body sensing techniques to get curious about and resolve the true underlying issues.

Anxiety can result in very physically uncomfortable feelings, be accompanied by destructive thoughts, or stir up intense emotions. Whatever ways your anxieties may show up, it can feel like a storm is taking over, or like a grinding marathon of tension. These uncomfortable, anxious feelings can have a huge influence on the decisions you make in your life. It may even feel like you are not making deliberate choices, but instead are just trying to get through one challenging, anxiety-riddled day at a time. It can be very exhausting! The goal of therapy is to shift you to a place where YOU are making the decisions in your life, not your anxious feelings. Read more on my website.

Counsellor

Feelings of anxiety can become so intense that it becomes overwhelming. Often individuals struggling with anxiety express constant intruding thoughts that focus on fears of events of the future. Anxiety can create physical feelings of distress like a tight chest that makes it difficult to breath, an upset or tight feeling in the stomach, and general fatigue from constantly trying to control their thoughts and actions. Some people have battled anxiety for so long that they begin to believe it is just who they are and accept the restrictions it causes in their life. Through counselling we will work to break the cycle of anxiety controlling your inner world. Bringing a sense of relief, control and freedom that has been absent for so long.

We are far more primitive in our reactions than we like to think, and fear, stress, or anxiety, can go from an adaptive warning to a very non adaptive over reaction, arresting our ability to function. I have worked extensively in this area, in giving workshops and as a trainer for other counsellors, focusing first on understanding the body's reaction and then developing skills to over-ride the anxiety response. Using a mindfulness approach, staying connected with our needs, and focusing on resiliency, anxiety can be tamed.

Anxiety is everywhere in our busy society. We are taught about anxiety, however we are often not taught how to have a relationship with it. How do you treat your anxiety when it comes to visit? What does your anxiety manifest as? How do you know it is anxiety?

Feelings of anxiety can develop slowly and insidiously. The mind becomes busy with thoughts, especially thoughts about the future, over which one has very little control. The mind is so powerful it convinces the body that the fears (anxieties) are real and true, resulting in symptoms of elevated heart rate, shaking, blurry vision, tension and difficulty breathing. All of this, if not addressed, becomes a terrifying and helpless cycle. Tiffani provides education about anxiety, as well as easy, effective coping strategies to quickly reduce feelings of anxiety and experience a new way of being that is capable, calm and free.

According to Dr. Carl Jung, the amount of anxiety one experiences is equal to the degree of trauma one’s endured, but hasn’t processed. Anxiety is one way the unconscious gets our attention, and it’s seldom comfortable or easy. In therapy, we will explore the roots of your anxiety and work to transform your unconscious impulses into conscious awareness. People who outgrow anxiety experience an increased ability to manage stress, an expanded sense of emotional freedom, a greater sense of authenticity and cohesion, improved self-confidence, deeper and more fulfilling relationships with self and others. Call Psychotherapist Joseph Eliezer today for your no obligation phone consultation.

I help clients dealing with anxiety and stress by using CBT, DBT, and Mindfulness based approaches. I help clients develop awareness and insight around the way they think to then create change in their thinking. Thoughts, Behaviours, and Emotions are all interconnected and drive each person's experience of an event and of themselves. By changing one, we change the other two. I help clients do this while pairing their thoughts with mindfulness based strategies to soothe their stress and anxiety.

You might be familiar with that tense, unsettled feeling that you can't shake. The overthinking, ruminating, and worrying. It's so hard to be present and engaged when we suffer with anxiety! Anxiety is the #1 reason people seek out my services. I can help you get to the roots of your anxiety (hint: it's not ONLY about disputing your irrational thoughts) so that you feel more grounded and alive. Through their work with me, my clients have reported that they are more socially engaged, less in their heads, more in tune with their bodies, and better able to attend to the underlying emotions and needs underlying the anxiety. I look forward to supporting you in moving beyond your anxiety.

Most of us suffer from anxiety and stress at some point in our lives. And we live with it. What if we didn't have to live with it? What if there was a way to alleviate it from our lives? What if it was a choice? Most of the stress and anxiety in our lives comes from our perspective of what is happening in our lives. This perspective is coming from us, and therefore it is possible to change it. I help clients do this through cognitive behavioural therapy, mindfulness, meditation and other methods that enable them to become much more aware of their thoughts and the choices they have to think differently. There is no need to suffer. There is another way!

Anxiety and stress are not reserved for the adults of our world. Many children experience the debilitating effects of negative stress at home, school and socially. While positive stress is essential to get us moving every day, too much negative stress may lead to physical and emotional distress. Increases in career demands, job loss, marital issues, the loss of a loved one, a new relationship, a recent move, scholastic demands, bullying, the birth of a child or caring for ill or elderly family members may elevate one's stress level to the unmanageable. Together, we will endeavor to help you (or your child) manage and overcome the effects of negative stress with effective tools.
