I find that the most important part of working with anxiety and stress is to work with creating a safe environment to explore and work on these feelings together. This is an important goal. Without safety, and a feeling of genuine and concern and compassion for you, I do not think we will be able to get very far. From here learning to approach, tolerate and understand what makes you anxious and stressed out, the things you avoid talking about and are fearful about being overwhelmed by are the things I want to help you master. So much of anxiety is feeling smaller than what we are up against. Getting confidence in yourself and coping effectively with your anxiety is what I will help you do.

Anxiety is a necessary message that you need to pay attention to something that is at dis-ease in the body. My focus, using Burns techniques, is to help the individual find what they need to hear from the anxiety/stress while giving them very specific tools to distract the unnecessary messages. I show them body relaxation techniques as well as breathing exercises to lessen their tension and stress.

Stress and anxiety play a big role in our lives. We live in an information heavy world, which along with the daily grind of life, can make people feel overwhelmed and anxious. One of the problems is that it isn’t just felt by the person suffering, but by all those around the person as well. That’s why it’s crucial to learn techniques to alleviate your stress. I believe that in order to really work through your anxiety, you need to figure out where it’s coming from and learn your triggers. Reducing your stress will result in better relationships, greater confidence in your abilities, and renewed enjoyment in experiences to just name a few.

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.

Most days, everyone experiences anxiety and stress on some level. The problem arises when the anxiety begins to interfere with normal functioning and you become paralyzed to be more productive. Anxiety can be a specific fear (worries about safety/security) or more generalized where you just constantly feel “anxious” and do not know why. When you are in that state, it is hard to recognize the triggers, or what thoughts/behaviors may be exacerbating your symptoms. Therapy helps to uncover those patterns while also offering techniques to stop them from being debilitating, so you can move forward with a more satisfying, productive everyday life.

People rarely come to counseling when their anxiety first starts causing them problems. Most people try to handle it on their own and try the “white knuckle” approach until they are exhausted and overwhelmed. Often life becomes unmanageable and depression sets in when anxiety is not dealt with. Anxiety commonly focuses on illogical things that may seem foolish or kind of crazy, so you have kept these to yourself. Don’t keep struggling alone. Call me so I can help you reduce the hold anxiety has on you and restore freedom to live your life fully again. Contact me at 714-751-0888 and I promise I won't think you are crazy.
