Anxiety is an internal alarm system that gives us information about our internal state as well as possible danger in the external world. Often, anxiety is a signal of deeper, more intense emotions such as sadness, anger, and fear. It can also be a consequence of not living authentically. Once these deeper feelings are identified and expressed, they can be readily released. For example, when we say "Yes" when we really mean "No," we will often experience anxiety. In this case, the anxiety is providing us with a warning that we are not being honest (living authentically) with ourself and/or another. Therapy is the perfect place to explore this common emotion.

Who doesn't experience anxiety and stress in this life? We all do. In some cases stress comes from the ongoing challenges we encounter in daily life. Exercise, good diet and relaxation through doing fun things to doing a stillness practice re-centers us. But that isn't true where trauma or ingrained negative thinking has control in our life. But there are tools and processes that can restore us to a more peaceful normal. Using a blend of EMDR and energy psychology tools we can bring your anxiety symptoms down from totally controlling your life to getting you back to living your life again. Plus you can learn the process for clearing your stress and anxiety yourself.

One source of Anxiety is a life-style full of pressure and stress when you may not be sure why you are so driven but you are moving too fast to slow down and find out what you are really feeling. Another, deeper source of Anxiety is an internal conflict in which one aspect of you is pushing in a certain direction and another aspect is either resisting or pulling in another direction. A third source of anxiety is a history of serious life difficulties when you may have been abused, ignored, or mistreated in some way. All of these kinds of anxiety can be helped if we can sit together and understand these anxieties in more depth. and find new and more effective coping mechanisms

Our busy lives provide plenty of anxiety and stress. Some stress is normal, even helpful. But if you feel tense, anxious, or fearful most of the time, worry and obsess about the future, or feel psychological tension is beginning to affect your physical health, it may be time to get help. I use a variety of techniques to help people manage stress, including guided imagery, meditation, and EMDR, which is very effective for those whose anxiety stems from previous emotional wounds or trauma. No matter what approach we choose, I'll make sure you feel safe, supported, and free to explore the causes of your anxiety and stress so you can overcome them and take back control of your life.

Holistic Psychotherapist

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 and stress can be debilitating at times. Having a safe place to talk about your stress and learning safe ways to cope is a place to start. Sometimes stress is in relation to family, work, friends, relationships that we long to have work well. We can look at these areas and develop better ways of coping and communicating so that relationships are a source of security and comfort.

Liscensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Anxiety and Stress are part of the human condition. Many of us don't realize how much of our brain's real estate anxiety and stress take up - robbing us of being able to be present for what is in front of us instead of reacting to some fear or past trauma. I can help you build your inner resilience and recognition of when you are being driven by anxiety/stress so that you can find your way out of a historic reaction and into a more current narrative.

Anxiety can range from mild stress that is manageable to overwhelming stress that turns into traumatic activation. Through our somatic and relational therapies, you can feel whole again. Together, we look for what strengths and abilities you have that can be built on. Somatic resources generate an awareness of the sensations in the body that feel pleasant and grounding for the client and help them mediate the debilitating symptoms of trauma. Often clients don’t recognize the symptoms of trauma and are dealing with anxiety, fear and depression on their own. Many trauma clients do not seek therapeutic assistance right away, either because they don’t take the traumatic experience seriously or they think that “time will heal” or because of shame and...(view profile to read more)

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.

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

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.

Clinical Psychologist

Anxiety comes in many forms, from a feeling of underlying pressure, stress, or persistent worry, to full-blown, terrifying panic attacks. The good news is that we know an enormous amount about how to treat anxiety. There's an inherent bind, though: anxious people are often anxious about trying therapy. I encourage you to just make the phone call, talk to us a little about what you're facing, and think about making an initial session appointment. The data shows that we will probably be able to help you.
