We all have stress and anxiety; the question is how we deal with them. Therapy can teach various ways of handling these natural states so that they do not hold us back from reaching our goals. Together we will choose and try out ways of helping you through stress and anxiety. Thought-stopping, examining illogical thoughts, self-talk, and hypnotherapy are a few of these techniques.

Individuals experience and process stress and anxiety differently. When the stress hormone, Cortisol, spikes too high, it can reek havoc on the mind and body. Since each person's stress and anxiety manifests differently, each person's anxiety symptoms respond differently to various treatment methods. Anxiety is as diverse as one's DNA. Therefore, I take into account one's family history, environmental influences, past experiences, basic temperaments, hereditary features, etc. to help customize your coping tools for anxiety.

I’d like to offer you 3 quick tips on managing the stress or anger in your life. Although I’ve written more extensively on this in other publications, this is just a quick, short list of three things you can do to tone things down a notch and improve your life. First, make sure that you are exercising regularly. While you exercise, become aware of what is bothering you. As you focus on your stressors, let the physiological energy generated by your anger or angst be burned off by your body. Let the exertion cleanse you… body, mind and soul. This is what I call Anger Work. Second, use “On-the-Spot Tension Tamers.” These are helpful when you are in the middle of a conflict or stressful meeting....

Sometimes things go sideways despite your best planning. And unfortunately, nothing can protect you from that. Anxious about this lack of control is pretty normal even if its all you think of. What if you could get back all the time you spend avoiding, worrying, planning, etc.? What would you do? My approach is to help you live in the midst of struggle and get a life you really want.

Nowadays, stress is an epidemic. It seems like we never have enough time to relax and doing anything "extra" seems overwhelming. Chronic stress leads to anxiety and, before you know it, you've got double trouble. Getting counseling can help you sort out the mess, learn to set limits, prioritize what really matters and get your life back under control. I treat stress and anxiety disorders with Reality-based Therapy and behavioral counseling. Stress/anxiety are very treatable problems. Left untreated, stress and anxiety get worse over time. Don't let your problem become unmanageable. Quality counseling will help you get your life back on track. Let's get started!

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.

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.

Just learning a few ways that we can manage anxiety and stress can bring a lot of relief.

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.

It is a given! The issue is not that we have anxiety, rather it is not being able to make sense out of what is making us anxious. Anxiety is a warning signal that something is wrong and we need to be alert to what we need to take care of ourselves. Anxiety changes when we can be in dialogue with someone who can help us understand what the surrounded issues are that need our attention. Being alone in our anxiety keeps us trapped. Being connected in our fear changes it. This is what good therapy does. It provides a space to no longer be alone in your anxious feelings. Being responded adequately in your fear allows confidence and peace to return.

People have different thresholds and levels of stimulation that are ideal for them. Too little and it is difficult to engage, to be interested. Too much and the mind races, has difficulty focusing, and you become anxious and exhausted. The right amount creates focus, creativity and productivity/efficiently. This can translate into your level of stress. Too little and it’s difficult to be motivated. Too much and it’s counter productive. The right amount helps you become engaged and focused. In Counseling we explore and find what you need to manage your stress & anxiety?

Stress and anxiety can go undetected and can cause major health problems. Conversely, some health problems can cause stress and anxiety. After ruling out a medical problem through a physical examination from your MD, a person experiencing anxiety and stress should seek help from a Psychologist. A licensed counselor can help a person to learn about the signs of stress within the body, discover ways to manage stress and anxiety, and effectively use stress to motivate a person and promote healthy change.

One of the most common problems people seek therapy for is anxiety whether it’s about daily stressors or a specific event or situation. Struggling with anxiety and stress can leave you feeling exhausted and defeated. It can negatively affect your ability to function in different areas of your life. My hope is for people struggling with anxiety to learn healthy ways of coping with stress, identify triggers that lead to anxiety, and gain a new perspective.

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.
