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.

Anxiety occurs when you have several different emotions that build up to the point where you become overwhelmed. I provide a particular kind of approach to anxiety that may not only help you to lower your anxiety threshold (leading to less anxiety and fewer panic attacks), but to identify the myriad feelings that make up your particular type of anxiety. Then, as we figure them out, understand them, and find new ways of expression, it may naturally help lower your anxiety level. We might also use certain stress management techniques that I developed when I taught stress management courses for several years.

Anxiety can leave many clients feeling completely powerless. I would empower clients to take control of their anxiety by separating themselves from their anxiety and working towards their preferred relationship with anxiety. I would encourage clients to use mindfulness to decrease their anxiety by focusing on the present moment, acknowledging their anxiety, and accepting that their anxiety will not last forever.

Understanding the Role Of Stress In Just About Everything ScienceDaily (Jan. 11, 2008) — Stress, to put it bluntly, is bad for you. It can kill you, in fact. A study now reveals that stress causes deterioration in everything from your gums to your heart and can make you more susceptible to everything from the common cold to cancer. Thanks to new research crossing the disciplines of psychology, medicine, neuroscience, and genetics, the mechanisms underlying the connection are rapidly becoming understood. Dr. Sobo uses mindful techniques to teach patients skills for managing stress.

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.

Stress at work or school, relationship stress, financial stress, health issues often are precursors for people to seek psychotherapy. Disturbances in sleep and appetite and an inability to attend and concentrate can undermine one's work performance or a student's ability to successfully master the demands of school. I have experience treating teachers, nurses, doctors and lawyers with anxiety and stress and, as well, see college and graduate and law school students form universities in the Los Angeles area, including USC, UCLA and Loyola.

Is anxiety, panic, or stress overload taking over your life? Is it keeping you from things you need to do or want to do? It is very common to try to avoid anxiety or panic, or lower the stress, by avoiding situations that trigger it. By avoiding anxiety triggers, your world starts becoming smaller. It may feel safer, but it starts feeling like a prison. A prison created by fear. There is hope and help. I specialize in helping anxious people become more confident and to enjoy life more. I offer effective, drug free tools and strategies, mostly based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). We would work together to create a plan that works for you. Call me today to learn more.

Anxiety is a necessary message that you need to pay attention to something that is at dis-ease in the body. My focus, using Burns techniques, is to help the individual find what they need to hear from the anxiety/stress while giving them very specific tools to distract the unnecessary messages. I show them body relaxation techniques as well as breathing exercises to lessen their tension 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.
