Anxiety and Stress are prolific and rampant in our society. So many individuals walk around feeling constantly plagued by anxiety and stress. Believe it or not, we all have a choice whether or not we are controlled by stress and anxiety. I work extensively with individuals suffering from anxiety. You do not need to live a life where anxiety is controlling you, vs. you controlling it. Through our therapy process I will help you implement skills and a way of being which will not only minimize anxiety, it will also allow you to control it.

When anxiety and stress become overwhelming, it has the power to keep you from feeling like yourself. It takes away from your ability to be present in your day to day experiences, makes it difficult to enjoy your relationships, and takes your energy and time away from important things. You may not have control over stressful situations, but you can be empowered to handle them constructively and not be debilitated by anxiety. In the safety of therapy, we can explore and understand your stressors, identify constructive coping tools for you to draw on, and process through and release the burden of anxiety so that you can be free to enjoy the life you deserve.

One of the most effective treatments for anxiety is EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) which was developed about 30 years ago. The most common anxiety disorders are specific phobias. Other anxiety disorders include social anxiety disorder, panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I will help you find the root cause of the anxiety and process the memory that feeds the current symptoms of worry and fear.

Babies are born with a drive to stay close to a caregiver. This human survival instinct persists into adulthood as the drive to form a secure bond with a partner. No matter how old we are, emotional connection still feels like safety, while isolation feels like danger. It makes sense then that if you don’t feel securely connected to another person, you will be more vulnerable to anxiety. Yet often the anxiety itself makes it difficult for you to form the secure connection you need so much. Emotionally Focused Therapy can help you break this cycle and form secure bonds that serve as both a safe haven when you need support, and a secure base from which you can confidently go out into the world

Stress is a part of life...but ongoing anxiety can negatively impact our well-being, including our relationships, jobs, and families. If you suffer from chronic worrying and the stress is just too much, there IS a better way to live. I will not only help you develop stress management techniques that work for you, but I will also help you shift the way you have typically coped with unwanted thoughts and feelings. Moreover, we can work to build self-awareness and insight into the core reasons behind your anxiety, which typically produces longer lasting transformation.

Stress and anxiety feel bigger in isolation. Therapy can help identify the source of stress, what triggers stress reactions, fears and worries, negative thought patterns, and how to manage and cope with stressors in positive ways. If you or your child / adolescent are overwhelmed with stress and are experiencing increased anxiety then I would like to help.

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.
