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.

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.

Anxiety Counselor

Vicki Asher Wills, PsyD, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Clinical Psychology Doctor

128 Del Mar Ave., San Clemente, California

Counseling for Anxiety & Stress involves a combination of addressing the external, situational stressors and the client's internal responses to those stressors. I work with my clients to determine where they have control and how they can better exercise that control to reduce anxious feelings, and how to more effectively handle those situations in their lives that are beyond their direct control. I teach clients new stress management skills, practice creating and maintaining healthier boundaries in stressful relationships, and provide new ways of thinking about circumstances to reduce anxiety.

Anxiety Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

While most treatment approaches for anxiety and stress are effective on the surface, they don’t treat the real problem. Mantras, deep breathing, and rational dialogues about your fear being irrational rarely work---for most people don’t believe it or you! Imagine if you can trick the brain into changing without you telling your conscious mind that you are changing it? Problem with anxiety and stress is that the brain in this state knows you want to change it and it resists. Contact Kevin@kevinfleminphd.com for the ultimate stress and anxiety solution that will literally change your brain's autonomic nervous system patterns while you sit on your butt. 877-606-6161.

Anxiety Counselor

Pamela Wilson, Psy.D., MFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist & Psychoanalyst

27001 La Paz Rd. #430C, Mission Viejo, California

When stress and anxiety get out of control, life can become agony. We can become irritable, irrational and lack the focus we need to enjoy our life. I help you develop better ways to cope with the stresses in your life and to make use of anxiety in order to improve your day to day situation and life. Not all anxiety is bad. But when it leads to panic, loss of sleep, and physical problems, there needs to be intervention.

Anxiety Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Available for Online Therapy

Everyone experiences anxiety at some point, but for some the anxiety is so frequent or intense that it interferes with their lives or even triggers panic attacks. I use Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to help my clients get a sense of control over their own anxiety. We collaborate to learn skills to reduce the frequency or intensity of the anxious feelings, to tolerate the anxiety when it does occur so they can still function through it, and to practice habits that reduce stress and improve general mental health.

Anxiety Counselor

Piper Walsh, Ph.D

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.
