Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Anxiety and stress come from a variety of sources for children and young adults. Further, the behavioral outcome of anxiety and stress varies from one individual to the next. While some may become isolated and avoid stressful situations, others can become behaviorally aggressive and aggitated. I work closely with my clients and families on identifying the underlying causes of this anxiety, and by using cognitive behavioral therapy and solution focused methods my clients learn the skills to manage and resolve these stressors.

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.

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.

Panic, anxiety, and stress rob you of your freedom. Freedom to go places, freedom to do things, and freedom to be with people you love. The fear makes your world small. Using proven methods, called cognitive-behavioral methods, I help you walk your way out of the fear and back into freedom and into your life again. You do not have to stay the victim of fear. Let me show you how.

I have extensive training in phobias, panic attacks, obsessions, compulsions, rumination, worrying, withdrawal, avoidance, shame, guilt, self-hatred, suicidality, hopelessness, lack of motivation, and social disengagement. These are all behaviors that can result from life stressors and anxiety. Our minds are on overdrive when we are stressed, and our bodies are on high alert. I will teach you skills to quiet your mind, relax your body, and to face the fears you have that are stopping you from living the life you want.

Steven Harris, PhD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

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 Counselor

Alaleh Selkirk, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Lakewood

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.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Whether stress/anxiety results from pushing oneself too hard or needing to be too perfect, or from an over-active limbic system that just won't seem to turn off, or from current or past trauma(s), several approaches offer relief when they are used to effectively target the source of the problem: Voice Dialogue, EMDR, Cognitive-Behavior Therapy, Relaxation Training and self-soothing techniques, Assertion Training, Mindfulness, Neurofeedback. All or a combination of these can work to alleviate symptoms and heal the problem. Sometimes they are used in conjunction with short-term or longer-term medications. An exercise and nutritional program can also be extremely beneficial.

Conflict in relationships is inevitable and when couples cannot find resolution, anxiety builds. Often, this leads to shutting down or blowing up--both triggering behaviors that can drive a wedge between two people. As co-therapists, we help couples find ways to maintain differences while staying connected. Intimacy also triggers old unresolved issues that create stress. These old wounds have nothing to do with our partners. We help couples understand how these memories can interfere in the repairing with your partner.
