The approach that I have found most helpful in working with people with anxiety and stress issues is helping them FIRST learn to slow down and relax. I have been trained and have worked for many years with victims of trauma who experience enormous amounts of stress. First, teaching coping skills and then exploring the underlying cause for the anxiety and/or stress. People with anxiety often report various symptoms ranging from having difficulty concentrating, being afraid to do things they used to do, having headaches, sweating a lot, having hypertension, fatigue, heart palpitations, and sexual dysfunction. Often, people with anxiety have limited support because they are embarrassed or....

The first thing we'll need to do when you come in with anxiety and stress is to work on understanding together the source of the problem. Is your life unavoidably busy? Are there unresolved traumas that keep your system on high alert? Has it always been like this? There are many practical steps you can take to relieve anxiety and stress, including mindful meditation, body awareness, self-care and slowing down. We'll work on those but also explore whatever obstacles have kept you so far from using techniques like these. We'll look at what may have kept you stuck in patterns of anxiety and stress and actualize your motivation to change.

Lauren Stevenson, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

My approach to the treatment of anxiety is to use the most effective intervention strategies possible. My treatment for anxiety (including panic disorder and OCD) utilizes exposure therapy, which works by helping a person confront a specific fear or memory while in a safe and supportive environment. The main goals of exposure therapy are to help my clients learn that by stopping the avoidance of what they fear, they actually become MORE comfortable and can reduce their anxiety to a substantial degree - all of which opens doors of hope and increases the potential to reach your desired goals with an improved quality of life.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Anxiety & Stress are present both in the mind and the body. Through Cognitive Behavioral techniques, I help clients to identify underlying thoughts that trigger anxious symptoms, which are often physical. We use breathing techniques and muscle relaxation to address the physical symptoms in the moment. I will help you to identify negative thinking that can get in the way of fighting anxiety. For some, talking about your stress helps to relieve it... we'll do that, too. For Christian clients, I incorporate truth from the Bible to use to fight hopelessness and overwhelming thoughts that trigger anxiety.

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.
