Anxiety and stress are a build up of tension naturally occurring in life. Talking in therapy can release that tension. Clients often don't want to "burden" friends and family with their problems. Venting to a therapist can shift emotions and attitudes. Frustration, fear and anger gets expressed allowing the way for well-being, productivity, connection with others, and happiness.

I work with my clients to help them understand the differences between stress and anxiety. In both cases, I practice supportive, interactive psychotherapy in which I help my clients become insightful about the sources of their stress or anxiety. In treating anxiety disorders, I have found Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and/or a gradual approach to Exposure Therapy to be helpful. I generally refer my clients who suffer from anxiety to a colleague psychiatrist, with whom I work collaboratively, for medication management. In working with my clients who present with either disorder, I often teach strategies like meditation, relaxation training and journaling as a part of my therapeutic approach.

In addition to being a licensed Marriage Family Therapist, I am also a ceritified Somatic Experiencing Practitioner as developed by Dr. Peter Levine, and a certified Structural Integration Practitioner as developed by Dr. Ida Rolf. Using these body-based technologies in what we call a "bottom up" approach to anxiety and stress is a lot more effective than the "top down" approach of traditional Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. That's because anxiety and stress are artifacts of the reptillian brain and limbic system not the neocortex where CBT works.

Glenn Fleisch, Ph.D., MFT

Licensed psychotherapist

Anxiety and stress are most common conditions that result in physical ailments, disease and impairment in living. I show you how to use the whole body to both contain stress responses and to find a more solid, stable foundation with which to process anxious and stressed places. These are usually aspects of ourselves that do not feel safe or supported- so grounding in the whole body, breathing, letting the body unwind tension allows for a way to not get caught up in these stress patterns. Rather we then learn how to enter into the places of anxiety/stress- so that these parts of ourselves feel safe to experience, express and release what they have been carrying- including unresolved traumas.

Depression, anxiety, excessive worry, and challenges in relationships are rooted in insufficient emotional attunement in formative years. After providing you practical and effective tools that lower anxiety and reduce stress symptoms in the moment; I focus on really attuning to your experience and helping you experience being accepted. As our relationship develops, I find it normal that you will internalize an internal ability to experience yourself as acceptable. After this happens, you will find that the normal "pain in the ass life experiences" that you find will still be there, but you will have a different sense of self that will allow you to navigate them a deeper sense of self!

But you don't have to keep suffering from the debilitating effects of anxiety. We've learned so much about how the brain is wired and what causes anxiety. I use methods that help you become more solid in your nervous system so that you are no longer ruled by your overwhelming feels of stress and anxiety. You can have more peaceful days that will allow you to live your life with more aliveness and contentment.

My approach to working with anxiety and stress management is integrative. I like to incorporate the use of mindfulness, breath work, guided imagery and body-based therapies as well as a psychodynamic and experiential approach to help uncover potential underlying causes for the anxiety and stress. With this kind of approach, I've helped clients feel calmer, more relaxed and more in control of their reactions to daily stressors and experiences.

Anxiety Counselor

Erika Shershun, MA, MFTI

Somatic Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Contra Costa Centre

When we feel anxious, overwhelmed or stressed we're often experiancing fear; fear of a future outcome that is not aligned with our desires or our sense of safety. When we dwell on the future (or past) we're not available for the present, where creativity, spontaneity and joy reside. Chronic stress and anxiety also takes a toll on our health, and can result in behaviors ranging from anger, aggression and defensiveness to withdrawal and depression, which in turn negatively impact our relationships and overall wellbeing. I will guide you in forming a sense grounding, support and of safety in your own skin, quieting the chronic worry or fear, and replacing it with more presence, calm and ease.

If you suffer from anxiety in any form—including panic attacks, insomnia, having a generally nervous predisposition, experiencing a kind of anxious depression, or general lifestyle stress—the good news is that these are very treatable conditions. By teaching you mindfulness and breathing techniques, as well as using other modalities and working directly with the underlying source of anxiety, I'll help you learn to self-regulate when you're feeling anxious, and teach you how to relate to your anxiety differently, allowing you to feel more natural states of ease and well-being.
