Much like depression, anxiety and stress is something we all deal with at some point in our lives. Anxiety, in and of itself, is not a bad thing. In fact, some anxiety is not only healthy, but necessary for us to get things done. Without some anxiety, we lack motivation to take action. However, anxiety can become problematic when it overwhelms and paralyzes us. Therapy helps by giving us a space to learn skills to better manage the anxiety and no longer feel gripped by it. I use a holistic/mindful approach consisting of connecting the mind, body, and the environment (incorporating all 5 senses) to live fully in the present moment with respect and compassion for ourselves.

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.

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. Learning how to relax yourself with breathing can stop panic attacks and is an easy-to-learn technique For most clients, talk therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) are very helpful in working with anxiety and stress. As you begin to understand how to challenge the negative thoughts that lead to anxiety and stress, you will feel more in control and be able to reduce the normal stress and anxiety the is part of life.

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.

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

Life has a way of making us feel overwhelmed and out of control at times. Stress and anxiety can build up and consume your thoughts and feelings. I believe that by exploring unmet needs from the past, people can develop healthier relationships today. By working through painful losses and wounds, people can release unhelpful beliefs about themselves and others in order to live more fully in the present and with hope for the future. We are hurt in relationships; we are also healed in relationship, and the therapeutic relationship can be a useful resource. If you are ready to take the next step I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!

I handle anxiety and stress in many ways but a few ways are through TRAUMA counseling, I can use EMDR which is a way to handle almost any trauma, Brain Spotting, or Havening Touch. All these methods are gentle and can be used on children as well. I also love the 12 step models for using good boundaries and just sometimes learning how to say NO. I was trained by Pia Melody, a master in teaching her CoDependence method. I have also used Hypnosis in the past and can easily use Visualization for my clients. I always give homework for my clients to continue the work at home. Many clients don't know that after they leave my office their therapy keeps on working and may manifest in change!

Without a doubt, the most common problems that people come to see me is related to anxiety and stress in their lives. Quite often they feel unsettled, scared, confused, and frustrated when they first come to see me. Some have panic attacks as well. This is a terrible way to live. And here's some good news: anxiety and stress can be treated, quite often with great success. I like to take a good history to see how much of your anxiety and stress is related to current circumstances, perhaps an underlying health condition, and possible genetic causes. Then we can explore different treatment options that work for you. I like to use a collaborative approach. This gets the best results.

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.

My primary area of expertise is the treatment of Anxiety Disorders. There are different anxiety disorders such as Panic Disorder, Agoraphobia, Social Anxiety Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Specific Phobia, PTSD and more. My therapeutic approach for the treatment of anxiety consists of: educating my client about their specific anxiety, teaching coping mechanisms to reduce stress/anxious mood, learning to interrupt the development of anxiety that leads to unpleasant physical manifestation and confronting behaviors and thoughts that maintain ongoing anxiety. It is imperative to work on my client's issues that perpetuates anxiety and distress.

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.

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.

Everyone experiences stress and anxiety at one time or another in their lives. Stress interferes in peoples lives at least moderately; however, chronic stress can affect your health, causing symptoms from headaches, high blood pressure, and chest pain to heart palpitations, skin rashes, and loss of sleep. Talk therapy has been proven to alleviate stress and in my practice I also use breathing, relaxation, and meditation techniques that help clients alleviate their stress symptoms.

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.

Stress is something we experience when our circumstances feel too demanding for our control. We can feel the symptoms of stress both emotionally and physically. Stress can cause us to feel anxious and out of control. Therapy can help to reduce the feelings of stress and anxiety by reframing these situations. It's a safe place to talk about the problems you are feeling anxious about and to work on different solutions to these problems. My framework is a problem solving approach but with a search for a deeper understanding as to why these situations may be causing anxiety and stress.

Anxiety and stress is one of the most common reasons for seeking therapy. Anxiety can be triggered in many ways and therefore, it can manifest and impact us in many ways. Living anywhere, especially in a large city such as Los Angeles, can create day-to-day stress, which then has the potential to impact one’s anxiety. Anxiety and stress can also impact one’s sexual needs, as well as be a result of such issues. Goals that target both anxiety and stress can be achieved with the right therapist by your side. I appreciate you trusting your therapeutic needs with me.
