Anxiety occurs when you have several different emotions that build up to the point where you become overwhelmed. I provide a particular approach to anxiety that may not only help you to lower your anxiety threshold (leading to less anxiety and fewer panic attacks), but to identify the myriad feelings that make up your particular type of anxiety. Then, as we figure them out, understand them, and find new ways of expression, it may naturally help lower your anxiety level. We might also use certain stress management techniques that I developed when I taught stress management courses for several years.

Anxiety is an inability to be fully relaxed. It is mental and physical tension. Many things cause it and many things perpetuate it. Not all anxiety is bad or needs to be extinguished. I work with the client to understand the meaning of their anxiety. I find sometimes people are not consciously aware of the real reasons they cannot feel relaxed. Enlisting the client's sense of curiosity about their own thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations I aim to identify their symptoms of anxiety and the origins of them. I utilize cognitive behavioral and mindfulness strategies to identify and replace unhelpful thoughts with more productive ones.

Many individuals are surprised when I tell them that not all anxiety is necessarily negative, in fact, it was crucial to our survival for hundreds of year. We still can experience this with our fight, flight, or freeze responses when we preceive danger; however, these are often used to extreme when they are not necessary as they may have been back in the cave man days. Anxious behaviors may stem from inherited characteristics, environmental or learned behaviors, or a combination of these. The result may lead to a significant decrease in functioning for individuals and in many domains in their lives, i.e., work, school, social life; psychotherapy can make a significant positive impact.

It can be hard for people who experience various challenges to have the confidence or desire to approach a professional. Not only we are generally too embarrassed to ask for help in unraveling our feelings, healthy functional people suffer the double stigma. Since they are used to being highly functional in most, if not all aspects of their lives, when they face unfamiliar emotional challenges it can be hard to accept or understand it. In many occasions it is not easy to say: hey, I am dealing with something that I don’t have the tools to resolve! I truly care about them and want the best possible results.

Anxiety can be debilitating, especially if you have panic attacks. It can feel like and assault on your senses and makes you want to flee to safety. I liken it to feeling as if a lion had walked into the room. Your brain tells you there is danger and you must fight or flee. For those who suffer from anxiety medication can help but there are also ways that you can learn to manage and control it. I try to help my patients to understand the universalized thoughts and feelings that feed the anxious beats and to learn techniques that will improve the quality of their lives.

Stress at work or school, relationship stress, financial stress, health issues often are precursors for people to seek psychotherapy. Disturbances in sleep and appetite and an inability to attend and concentrate can undermine one's work performance or a student's ability to successfully master the demands of school.

When you're struggling with anxiety and stress, you want help as quickly as possible. For some clients, medication is appropriate but talk therapy can reduce stress and anxiety quickly.

We live in stressful times and many people struggle with anxiety that can range from simple daily worry to debilitating fear. Identifying the triggers underlying anxiety, big or small, can help you develop strategies for dealing with the thought patterns and fixed beliefs that are preventing you from living life to the fullest. As we begin to process your anxiety together, we may find that it is caused by past trauma or events in your family history. Developing skills to cope with immediate anxiety, while slowly working through past trauma or family issues can help to decrease the experience of anxiety in daily living, as well as in your life, overall.

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?

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.

One of the most effective treatments for anxiety is Internal Family Systems 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.

Registered Associate Marriage & Family Therapist

When we live with too much 'future', we become anxious. By strengthening our tolerance for future distress, learning to find a calm center to anchor ourselves in, and understanding our own role in anxiety, we can weather those anxious storms all the better. I will help you do this by looking at the core mechanics behind the anxiety, seeking strategies for calming ourselves down, and applying anything we learn along the way to life more broadly.

Most people experience anxiety from time to time in their lives. It's the frequency and intensity of these feelings and whether or not they negatively impact one's life that determine the need for professional help. Often it's the way we THINK about troubling issues that determines how anxious we feel. If we can change the negative thought, we can usually change the feeling. This kind of "cognitive restructuring" therapy can be very effective when combined with relaxation techniques to overcome the negative impact of stress anxiety in life.
