Stress and anxiety are often the root causes leading to unhealthy coping mechanisms such as addiction and eating disorders. By evaluating triggers for stress and/or anxiety and developing healthy coping strategies (often with cognitive behavioral interventions), patients learn to self regulate and experience significant mood improvement. When necessary, referrals for medications are made as an adjunct to psychotherapy.

Worried or stressed out about things? I have successfully treated anxieties of all types and phobias to make life more manageable and fulfilling. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy has been shown in research to have the best results when dealing with stress and anxiety. This approach that I take helps you understand that your thoughts (" I am going to fail" or "I am going to look like a fool") are connected to your feelings (anxious, stressed, or afraid) which are connected to your behaviors ( such as not going to a particular place or being stuck in an area). For a free consultation, call me and be free of stress and anxiety today

I specialize in anxiety, fear, worry, and stress. My motto is "manage your life not your anxiety" because too many people spend their lives trying to work around their fears, distract from their anxiety, and avoid scary body sensations.

In treating anxiety, the most impotant issues is interupting the cycle of worry, obessing over worry, fearing the return of worry, and allowing worry to spread to every aspect of your life. Discriminating realistic reasons to worry from irrational reasons can help clients with excessive stress to cope. Interupting and redirecting thoughts of anxiety to more productive thoughts and activities will interupt the cycle that creates habitual anxiety. We will look at times you may over-react to triggers (be it an upcoming social situation, or a stumbling block that creates more stress and predictions of failure). We will take this path together. You are not alone.

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.

Many clients present with increasing levels of stress and anxiety in their lives. Therapy becomes centered around identifying triggers for anxiety symptoms, recent stressors in their lives, and identifying symptoms. Often times, we find together that anxiety has been in their life for a long time and that old patterns of behavior has accompanied it. We explore some of those patterns to identify the triggers and find new coping skills to practice when stress arrives. I find it helpful to collaborate with the client on setting goals and working at a speed that is comfortable to each client. This provides empowerment and confidence in working toward new ways of handling the stresses of living.
