I work with clients with anxiety by helping them develop skills and resources to be used during high anxiety periods. Then I assist people in developing a better understanding of where the stress and/anxiety stems from. With this increased self-understanding, people are better able to channel the "anxiety energy" into something more fulfilling and helpful.

Free 30 minute zoom call - Anxiety can arise from several places - one is the mind - people can think & imagine scenarios in their minds that create anxiety, when their thoughts and imagination may not even be true. Anxiety is also common in people who did not have a safe & secure experience with caregivers as they were growing up. The brain ends up being wired in a way that reproduces anxiety. Fortunately, due to new research in the field of neuropsychology & neuroplasticity, this can be changed!

Stress and Anxiety is a challenge that many of us are faced with. There are many of life's difficulties that are too big to face alone. Therapy can help you develop an awareness of what you feel, why you feel that way and what your triggers are. We can work together to determine how you might change your reaction to them. Coping skills and techniques will be discussed to help manage stress and anxiety. Deep breathing techniques, mindful meditation practices and exploring sleep and eating habits help to manage stress.

I begin by understanding how you experience anxiety/stress because how you experience them is unique for you. Then we begin to increase your tolerance for how you experience anxious/stressful thoughts, feelings, memories, and/or situations. This is necessary so the anxiety/stress stops being an overwhelming experience that interferes and gets in the way of your life. It's crucial to be able to become more comfortable when you experience anxiety/stress because they're a part life. The problem is the distressing and limiting to debilitating effect they have on you. As you learn to be able to do this, you will begin to experience more peacefulness, calm, hope, self-confidence and self-esteem.

We hold our anxiety and stress in our body. We feel tension, gut problems, hot flashes, disrupted sleep and more. I work with anxiety and stress by helping individuals learn and develop tools to re-regulate their nervous system. When we have a coherent and fluid nervous system, we can do difficult things without feeling paralyzed by overwhelming fear.
