Stress is a part of our everyday life, so much that living a life without stress seems surreal. Anxiety can be a result of the day to day stresses that are related to personal life, work life, and school life to name a few. A minimal amount of anxiety and stress in specific situations can be the motivation needed to complete tasks, power through exams and overcome the impossible. Learn how to calm and relax your mind by using visual techniques such as creating a safe place you can visit during times of intense stress and discover healthy and effective ways in which you can help relieve your mind and body of undesired anxiety and stress.

Many clients present with increasing levels of stress and anxiety in their lives. Therapy becomes centered around identifying triggers for anxiety symptoms, recent stressors in their lives, and identifying symptoms. Often times, we find together that anxiety has been in their life for a long time and that old patterns of behavior has accompanied it. We explore some of those patterns to identify the triggers and find new coping skills to practice when stress arrives. I find it helpful to collaborate with the client on setting goals and working at a speed that is comfortable to each client. This provides empowerment and confidence in working toward new ways of handling the stresses of living.

When anxiety or stress hampers your capacity for joy and creative thinking, therapy can be especially helpful. The techniques I teach are part of the treatment, but just as important is the safety of the therapeutic relationship. Here, unlike anywhere else in life, boundaries are clear, yet freeing. That means you can speak about painful subjects or strong emotions without dire expectations. You can give voice to any thought and gain the perspective that comes from hearing yourself say aloud words that were literally "unspeakable" before. At the same time, I can offer input that sheds light on, and helps you reframe, the anxieties that have spent far too long in the dark, or in control.

Susette Magana, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Compton

Anxiety & Stress are present both in the mind and the body. Through Cognitive Behavioral techniques, I help clients to identify underlying thoughts that trigger anxious symptoms, which are often physical. We use breathing techniques and muscle relaxation to address the physical symptoms in the moment. I will help you to identify negative thinking that can get in the way of fighting anxiety. For some, talking about your stress helps to relieve it... we'll do that, too. For Christian clients, I incorporate truth from the Bible to use to fight hopelessness and overwhelming thoughts that trigger anxiety.

Without a doubt, the most common problems that people come to see me is related to anxiety and stress in their lives. Quite often they feel unsettled, scared, confused, and frustrated when they first come to see me. Some have panic attacks as well. This is a terrible way to live. And here's some good news: anxiety and stress can be treated, quite often with great success. I like to take a good history to see how much of your anxiety and stress is related to current circumstances, perhaps an underlying health condition, and possible genetic causes. Then we can explore different treatment options that work for you. I like to use a collaborative approach. This gets the best results.

Anxiety can either be genetically based, or it can be a learned condition based on early family programming or the pressures of an increasingly demanding and technology-based environment. Learning how to live in the moment and how to detach from worry and perfectionism is often itself the goal of effective psychotherapy.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

I work with many patients who are struggling with anxiety and stress, whether it is due to relationship or life pressures, difficult family dynamics, or long-term individual anxiety that is preventing them from experiencing life in a freer, stronger, more peaceful and productive manner. We work together to determine the underlying causes that have produced (or may be continuing to provoke) their anxiety; then we focus on ways to see their lives and their problems more clearly, giving them more ability to have realistic expectations & more impact on their life situations. I help them find (and practice) concrete ways to reduce stress in their lives, increasing strength and lessening anxiety.
