Most days, everyone experiences anxiety and stress on some level. The problem arises when the anxiety begins to interfere with normal functioning and you become paralyzed to be more productive. Anxiety can be a specific fear (worries about safety/security) or more generalized where you just constantly feel “anxious” and do not know why. When you are in that state, it is hard to recognize the triggers, or what thoughts/behaviors may be exacerbating your symptoms. Therapy helps to uncover those patterns while also offering techniques to stop them from being debilitating, so you can move forward with a more satisfying, productive everyday life.

Anxiety and stress must be tended to on multiple fronts. If you are seeking help with anxiety and stress today, you are looking for immediate relief. I will work with you to identify immediate lifestyle changes, coping skills, and tools that may make anxiety more manageable. There is no quick fix or immediate cure, but some changes truly help. Anxiety often has deep sources and is an adaptive response to conscious and unconscious beliefs about yourself and the world. This type of therapeutic work moves more slowly as we work together to fully understand who you are, your unexplored ideas of who you are, and arrive at new places of understanding that can be freeing and calming.

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 and stress are inevitable in any walk of life. We experience both as a response to situation in which we do not know the outcome or that we don't have the adaptive coping skills to abate the negative feelings and emotions. Therapy teaches individuals about what triggering events cause anxiety and stress, how to reframe it into a positive, and what self-regulation techniques one can use to calm down and navigate through the situation productively.

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.

I go by the motto “the more you scare yourself, the more you grow.” This is why I encourage every my clients to scare themselves daily and sit with the fear that comes up. I call this the “Leap of Faith.” You see, the more you can experience the vulnerability of fear, the more likely the chance that you will not experience the anxiety related to it down the road. Each time you face your fears, you gain more CONFIDENCE, and this confidence/faith is the key to everything.

Whether stress/anxiety results from pushing oneself too hard or needing to be too perfect, or from an over-active limbic system that just won't seem to turn off, or from current or past trauma(s), several approaches offer relief when they are used to effectively target the source of the problem: Voice Dialogue, EMDR, Cognitive-Behavior Therapy, Relaxation Training and self-soothing techniques, Assertion Training, Mindfulness, Neurofeedback. All or a combination of these can work to alleviate symptoms and heal the problem. Sometimes they are used in conjunction with short-term or longer-term medications. An exercise and nutritional program can also be extremely beneficial.

Conflict in relationships is inevitable and when couples cannot find resolution, anxiety builds. Often, this leads to shutting down or blowing up--both triggering behaviors that can drive a wedge between two people. As co-therapists, we help couples find ways to maintain differences while staying connected. Intimacy also triggers old unresolved issues that create stress. These old wounds have nothing to do with our partners. We help couples understand how these memories can interfere in the repairing with your partner.

Life has a way of making us feel overwhelmed and out of control at times. Stress and anxiety can build up and consume your thoughts and feelings. I believe that by exploring unmet needs from the past, people can develop healthier relationships today. By working through painful losses and wounds, people can release unhelpful beliefs about themselves and others in order to live more fully in the present and with hope for the future. We are hurt in relationships; we are also healed in relationship, and the therapeutic relationship can be a useful resource. If you are ready to take the next step I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!

We go through our days with constant demands on us-caring for our children, our partners, work, $, laundry, school-the list goes on. Often, we don't pay attention to how stressed and anxious we actually are. Stress can cause physical ailments, it is not just "in our heads". Too much stress is just plainly not good for us. Stress can be managed, it can even be used for good. I can help you become more aware of how stress is experienced in your body and mind. We will use the stress that is inevitable in your life and redirect it towards productivity. I will help you regain control of stress and tell it to "chill out", so that you can be present and enjoy the people and events of life.

Anxiety and stress have a powerful presence in modern life, intricately woven into the fabric of our days. Pressure to perform optimally dictates our personal and professional arenas, and yet we blame ourselves for how anxiety has it's way with us. Productivity is a rampant and influential player in how we measure ourselves, and the self help movement proclaims there is always room for improvement. How do we find leverage over anxiety and stress? How do we carve a place for ourselves despite it? These are some of the questions that are important to explore in order to better understand the phenomenon of anxiety and stress that is permeating our lives.

In treating anxiety, the most impotant issues is interupting the cycle of worry, obessing over worry, fearing the return of worry, and allowing worry to spread to every aspect of your life. Discriminating realistic reasons to worry from irrational reasons can help clients with excessive stress to cope. Interupting and redirecting thoughts of anxiety to more productive thoughts and activities will interupt the cycle that creates habitual anxiety. We will look at times you may over-react to triggers (be it an upcoming social situation, or a stumbling block that creates more stress and predictions of failure). We will take this path together. You are not alone.

Anxiety and stress come from a variety of sources for children and young adults. Further, the behavioral outcome of anxiety and stress varies from one individual to the next. While some may become isolated and avoid stressful situations, others can become behaviorally aggressive and aggitated. I work closely with my clients and families on identifying the underlying causes of this anxiety, and by using cognitive behavioral therapy and solution focused methods my clients learn the skills to manage and resolve these stressors.

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.

People rarely come to counseling when their anxiety first starts causing them problems. Most people try to handle it on their own and try the “white knuckle” approach until they are exhausted and overwhelmed. Often life becomes unmanageable and depression sets in when anxiety is not dealt with. Anxiety commonly focuses on illogical things that may seem foolish or kind of crazy, so you have kept these to yourself. Don’t keep struggling alone. Call me so I can help you reduce the hold anxiety has on you and restore freedom to live your life fully again. Contact me at 714-751-0888 and I promise I won't think you are crazy.
