Regardless of its cause, anxiety is firmly rooted within our bodies, and needs to be addressed on both an emotional and physical level. Dr. Simina uses body-mind techniques as well as hypnotherapy to help loosen the grip of anxiety on the mind and body. With Dr. Simina's approaches, you will learn how to restore the physical and emotional sense of wellbeing that anxiety all too often robs from us. Her clients with stress and anxiety related issues mostly report a sense of freedom from feeling overwhelmed in life and renewed sense of aliveness after few sessions.

Everyone experiences anxiety at some point, but for some the anxiety is so frequent or intense that it interferes with their lives or even triggers panic attacks. I use Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to help my clients get a sense of control over their own anxiety. We collaborate to learn skills to reduce the frequency or intensity of the anxious feelings, to tolerate the anxiety when it does occur so they can still function through it, and to practice habits that reduce stress and improve general mental health.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

In 92653 - Nearby to Capistrano Beach.

In this fast-paced world of many challenges and pressure to keep up, stay involved and be successful, we often find ourselves worried that our "best" is simply not good enough. Stress and axiety are common reasons many seek counseling and I believe this is the beginning of the solution. Many do not realize they are contributors to their own distress by setting unreasonably high standards and expectations for themselves. Still, others contend with life's pressures and demands which are placed on them by other circumstanes. PTSD is a devastating disorder many face in the wake of war, poverty and the breakdown of their support systems. I am passionate about finding solutions together.

I have extensive training in phobias, panic attacks, obsessions, compulsions, rumination, worrying, withdrawal, avoidance, shame, guilt, self-hatred, suicidality, hopelessness, lack of motivation, and social disengagement. These are all behaviors that can result from life stressors and anxiety. Our minds are on overdrive when we are stressed, and our bodies are on high alert. I will teach you skills to quiet your mind, relax your body, and to face the fears you have that are stopping you from living the life you want.

I specialize in helping people who struggle with never feeling quite “enough" and want freedom from shame and anxiety. The torment of living with an inner critical voice is exhausting.

I would like to help you discover self-acceptance and find liberation from anxiety.

In 92866 - Nearby to Capistrano Beach.

When anxiety and stress become overwhelming, it has the power to keep you from feeling like yourself. It takes away from your ability to be present in your day to day experiences, makes it difficult to enjoy your relationships, and takes your energy and time away from important things. You may not have control over stressful situations, but you can be empowered to handle them constructively and not be debilitated by anxiety. In the safety of therapy, we can explore and understand your stressors, identify constructive coping tools for you to draw on, and process through and release the burden of anxiety so that you can be free to enjoy the life you deserve.

Anxiety and stress are often difficult to assess and even more difficult to overcome. In a caring and compassionate setting, I work with clients to develop insights regarding the sources of anxiety and the nature of patterns contributing to stress. With deep understanding of the ways in which stress and anxiety are operating, we can create strategies of dealing with both.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Many of my clients come into treatment due to anxiety and stress. Stress is a normal part of life but when stress becomes too overwhelming and affects an individual negatively that is when treatment can be helpful. I have helped many kids, teens, and individuals find the root to their anxiety by building awareness. I also work with the client to find useful tools to help manage stress. I work with clients to find healthier thoughts and effective ways to get their needs met. I am trained and certified in evidenced based practices to treat anxiety. I want to emphasize that each individual is unique and therefore tailoring treatment to the individual is important.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Clinical Psychology Doctor

In 92629 - Nearby to Capistrano Beach.

Counseling for Anxiety & Stress involves a combination of addressing the external, situational stressors and the client's internal responses to those stressors. I work with my clients to determine where they have control and how they can better exercise that control to reduce anxious feelings, and how to more effectively handle those situations in their lives that are beyond their direct control. I teach clients new stress management skills, practice creating and maintaining healthier boundaries in stressful relationships, and provide new ways of thinking about circumstances to reduce anxiety.

Psychotherapist/Psychoanalyst

In 92660 - Nearby to Capistrano Beach.

Anxiety and stress can be caused by many things; job challenges, marital discord, family crisis and financial difficulties to name a few. I first try to determine i this anxiety can be lifted through problem solving. Sometimes just talking through an issue with an objective listener is helpful. For deeper issues I work on incorporating stress reduction into your daily life in a way that is helpful and do-able. Depending on the level of stress, I may refer you for medication if you want it. I have many ways of working with stress and anxiety and use what works with each patient.

We live in a world where anxiety and stress run rampant and relaxation and exposure to sounds and visuals that restore and calm us are few. Often our stress comes from our external circumstances, and also from the internal themes we carry within us. Working from both the outside and the inside can help reduce the amount of anxiety and stress we naturally think we must sustain because we have for so long.
