The benefits of therapy for people who suffer from anxiety are the reduction of symptoms, and the development of greater well-being. Anxiety is a kind of friction among the moving parts of the self, an internal conflict that is distracting, depleting, and highly unpleasant. It is closely linked to stress, to boredom, and to fear of sadness. Rather than struggling, we can collaborate to turn toward the source of the anxiety and try to resolve it at the roots.

When anxiety and stress become overwhelming, it has the power to keep you from feeling like yourself. It takes away from your ability to be present in your day to day experiences, makes it difficult to enjoy your relationships, and takes your energy and time away from important things. You may not have control over stressful situations, but you can be empowered to handle them constructively and not be debilitated by anxiety. In the safety of therapy, we can explore and understand your stressors, identify constructive coping tools for you to draw on, and process through and release the burden of anxiety so that you can be free to enjoy the life you deserve.

Stress and anxiety are natural reactions to change and the challenges of life. To some degree, they can be invigorating as they compel us to achieve goals, expand our comfort zone, and grow. Nevertheless, anxiety and stress can become overwhelming and impact our physical and emotional well-being. In a caring and supportive way, I will help you attend to your feelings while still maintaining control. You will grow in your ability to restructure the thought processes that fuel your anxiety or stress, learn mindfulness and relaxation skills, and develop healthy coping strategies to manage your life. These are only a few among the many benefits of therapy. Call me for a free phone consultation.

Is worry or panic disrupting your life? While anxiety is a normal reaction to stress, high levels of sustained stress can be disturbing and can cause distress that interferes with a person's ability to lead a normal life. Many people who suffer from anxiety feel alone and different from others. They may be isolating, socially, experiencing panic, struggling with constant worries, or obsessing over concerns they have little control over. I assist people with anxiety to overcome fears, identify the sources of anxiety, and learn strategies to reduce and manage stress. But most of all, I help them reclaim their peace of mind. Please reach me at 949.370.4726 or at info@southoccounseling.com.

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.

Susette Magana, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Los Alamitos

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.

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.

Anxiety and stress seem to the two factors that are running most people's lives. Between, work, performances, home, family, friends, returning phone calls and emails and all the additional pressures of life, stress and anxiety can simply become overwhelming. Counseling and psychotherapy has an outstanding track record for helping people cope with their anxieties and stressors in life. The therapeutic relationship established by a professional counselor often substantially decreases and relieves the wave of anxiety that can paralyze anyone. Counseling along with if needed medical intervention will under most circumstance return needed control, comfort and success.

Anxiety and stress are major stumbling blocks in all of our lives today. You may be experiencing a wide variety of symptoms related to anxiety and stress such as panic attacks, physical ailments, feelings of being trapped, a sense of freezing, angry outbursts, or a desire to run. Fight, flight or freeze responses are normal responses to perceived danger, but may be getting in the way of your daily life. In my work with my clients, I have helped them determine the sources of their anxiety and stress, assisted them in reducing the charged feelings they have been experiencing, and supported them in learning new tools to improve their life.

Anxiety Counselor

Lauren Stevenson, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

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.

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.
