Recent studies show that moderate stress can actually make us more productive and successful. But when stress and anxiety become too much to handle, they can make life miserable. I use mindfulness-based therapy to help you increase your own innate ability to decrease anxiety and keep stress manageable. If your symptoms are related to past experiences such as painful or difficult childhood experiences, abuse or trauma, I offer Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. EMDR therapy is a highly effective for relieving symptoms of PTSD and improving performance. Come experience it for yourself!

When we feel anxious, overwhelmed or stressed we're often experiancing fear; fear of a future outcome that is not aligned with our desires or our sense of safety. When we dwell on the future (or past) we're not available for the present, where creativity, spontaneity and joy reside. Chronic stress and anxiety also takes a toll on our health, and can result in behaviors ranging from anger, aggression and defensiveness to withdrawal and depression, which in turn negatively impact our relationships and overall wellbeing. I will guide you in forming a sense grounding, support and of safety in your own skin, quieting the chronic worry or fear, and replacing it with more presence, calm and ease.

The key to overcoming excessive stress and anxiety is to understand the role of mind and body in regulating your nervous system. Learning to soothe and relax your body changes your mind and general outlook on life. And taking conscious control over your thoughts has a calming effect on your body’s nervous system. My integrative mind/body approach to psychotherapy offers you effective learning strategies to join the power of your mind with the innate relaxation response of your body. I can also help you addressing other issues that often lie at the root of anxiety such as relationship conflict or disconnect, intimacy issues, workplace stress, low self-confidence, depression, and trauma.

Eileen Goldman, MA MFT

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 and stress are felt when life overwhelms the capacity to experience. When events are too much to bear, too much to make sense of, or tolerate, we feel stress or anxiety. If unable to be with challenging life events we are left in this anxious state, held hostage by what cannot be digested or made sense of. I help people decrease stress and anxiety by increasing their ability to more fully inhabit themselves and be with their own experiences so that events of the past and present can be lived in and more comfortably felt. A sense of self, self-confidence, capacity, and control is restored.

It can feel scary and deeply lonesome to struggle with anxiety stress. I work with clients navigating acute symptoms of anxiety including negative self-talk, cyclical and catastrophic thought patterns, repetitive behaviors, loss of sleep, and difficulty with time management. When appropriate, I employ concrete CBT tools to aid in some immediate relief in tandem with traditional and interpersonal talk therapy to explore the root of the anxiety and provide long-term relief. My goal is to help individuals build a "tool box" of anxiety and stress management tools they can carry with them throughout their lives.

Racing pulse? Sweaty palms? Tight chest? Shortness of breath? Difficulty thinking clearly? A little anxiety keeps us alert and is a healthy, useful human function. A lot of anxiety can distract us, make us physically uncomfortable, steal our sleep,lead us to avoid important activities in life, and even increase our risk for serious illness. I help clients decrease their suffering from excessive anxiety by working on several fronts: reducing uncomfortable symptoms by increasing coping and relaxation skills; examining and changing anxiety-provoking ways of thinking; and getting to the root causes of the anxiety in order to minimize recurrences and develop mastery over excessive anxiety.

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

Often, anxiety comes up because of a narrative of negative or repetitive thoughts. These thoughts are usually related to an idea about the past or the future. Once you are aware of your thoughts patterns you can develop tools to manage these thoughts to reduce and even eliminate anxiety. I will teach you Cognitive Behavioral Techniques and Stress Management Exercises to help with this process. Some clients also benefit from having an Emotional Support Animal as part of their treatment plan. I structure each treatment plan according to each client's individual needs.

Looking at the symptoms of the anxiety, we will identify the onset and the triggers. Anxiety may be a constriction of excitement, a cover for sadness or loneliness, a pushing away of anger. We will look for underlying feelings, past traumas or losses, negative belief patterns that may underlie the anxiety and work them through, choosing from a variety of techniques. We can create affirmations and practice relaxation techniques or guided visualization that apply to your particular situation. At all times we will make sure we are going at your pace, and that we are doing whatever we need to make you feel safe and relatively relaxed with me.

I use mindfulness, meditation and breathing techniques with my clients who are experiencing stress and anxiety. I often give my clients homework (writing assignments) if they are interested in this. I find that giving clients practical tools to use in their daily life are most helpful when a client struggles with anxiety or panic attacks. We also look at negative thought patterns that may be contributing to the anxiety.
