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.

Life can be overwhelming at times resulting in increased anxiety and stress. If you are experiencing difficulty sleeping, worrying constantly, and increased irritability, you can benefit from additional support. Talking about issues you are dealing with may be hard, but avoiding issues can be even more devastating. Lack of sleep and fearful thoughts often do not go away by themselves. Learning new techniques on how to cope with stress and anxiety can improve your relationships, your outlook on life, and your overall health and well being. Reaching out for help is not a weakness, it shows strength and willingness to learn skills to improve your life.

Licensed Psychotherapist

In 91403 - Nearby to Gardena.

As people, we all deal with anxiety, and I remind clients that it’s a normal part of life. However, when it becomes a daily, pervasive problem, we can feel overwhelmed by its power over us. My approach treats more just the symptoms of the problem, and helps uncover the underlying causes of your worries and fears. I will offer you the tools to overcome anxiety and teach you how to use them, teaching you how to relax, transform unhelpful/negative thoughts into more realistic/constructive ones, and offer mindfulness meditation techniques when appropriate.

The demands placed on us to be available, in touch and productive increase with each new technology that appears on the store shelves. The pressures placed on our everyday activities has increased dramatically over the last 20 years. Anxiety arises and intensifies with each new demand and expectation whether it be self or externally induced from obligations at work or home. Managing ever increasing stress and anxiety levels is an on going challenge for each of us. In therapy we identify the sources of our stress and anxiety, set and work goals to find the balance necessary to bring sanity and peace back into our lives. Have you been abused?

Conflict in relationships is inevitable and when couples cannot find resolution, anxiety builds. Often, this leads to shutting down or blowing up--both triggering behaviors that can drive a wedge between two people. As co-therapists, we help couples find ways to maintain differences while staying connected. Intimacy also triggers old unresolved issues that create stress. These old wounds have nothing to do with our partners. We help couples understand how these memories can interfere in the repairing with your partner.

You might be longing for change that can bring some sense of peace to the anxiety and stress you carry daily but are afraid of the unpredictable and the unknown and find yourself moving aimlessly from one distraction to another. The relationship between therapist and patient has a context, a sharing of subjective experiences that cannot help but play out in unique and meaningful ways. Because every human being and each individual's process is unique, I won't put you through a series of pre-determined exercises or fit you into some theoretical model. I work in collaboration with you to explore and discover the context of your anxiety thereby helping you to manage it more productively.

Please call me at (949) 288-3123 if you have any questions at all. I want your therapy journey to be as successful as possible.

We're all freaking out with this Coronavirus crisis. You may notice anxiety coming in waves, sometimes you're ok, sometimes you may be close to an anxiety attack. I can help develop mental health and wellness best practices that will get the anxiety manageable. It's also good to remember that we should all be somewhat anxious in a time when there's risk out there. Anxiety helps protect us. But when it gets to be too much, it's harder to take care of ourselves. I can help you separate reasonable anxiety from panicky or obsessive thinking with talk therapy, homework and exercises between sessions. Online therapy can really help.

The modern world we live in is full of amazing technological advancements and organizational wonders, but it is also more complex and demanding than ever before. The myriad competing demands of our lives, how busy we are, the continual pressure to do and be more creates enormous stress for all of us. This stress can escalate into anxiety and the added strain of these issues easily begins to short-circuit our ability to function at our best, to feel good, to maintain relationships and responsibilities. I can help you understand the internal and external forces creating these negative feelings, and together we can find strategies for minimizing stress and anxiety so you can feel better.

Counseling for Anxiety & Stress involves a combination of addressing the external, situational stressors and the client's internal responses to those stressors. I work with my clients to determine where they have control and how they can better exercise that control to reduce anxious feelings, and how to more effectively handle those situations in their lives that are beyond their direct control. I teach clients new stress management skills, practice creating and maintaining healthier boundaries in stressful relationships, and provide new ways of thinking about circumstances to reduce anxiety.

Together, we will practice ways to prioritize your issues, allow you to tackle them individually, and develop relaxation techniques to help you through this process.

While most treatment approaches for anxiety and stress are effective on the surface, they don’t treat the real problem. Mantras, deep breathing, and rational dialogues about your fear being irrational rarely work---for most people don’t believe it or you! Imagine if you can trick the brain into changing without you telling your conscious mind that you are changing it? Problem with anxiety and stress is that the brain in this state knows you want to change it and it resists.
