Stress and anxiety feel bigger in isolation. Therapy can help identify the source of stress, what triggers stress reactions, fears and worries, negative thought patterns, and how to manage and cope with stressors in positive ways. If you or your child / adolescent are overwhelmed with stress and are experiencing increased anxiety then I would like to help.

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.

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.

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.

Stress at work or school, relationship stress, financial stress, health issues often are precursors for people to seek psychotherapy. Disturbances in sleep and appetite and an inability to attend and concentrate can undermine one's work performance or a student's ability to successfully master the demands of school. I have experience treating teachers, nurses, doctors and lawyers with anxiety and stress and, as well, see college and graduate and law school students form universities in the Los Angeles area, including USC, UCLA and Loyola.

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.

Anxiety and stress are inevitable in any walk of life. We experience both as a response to situation in which we do not know the outcome or that we don't have the adaptive coping skills to abate the negative feelings and emotions. Therapy teaches individuals about what triggering events cause anxiety and stress, how to reframe it into a positive, and what self-regulation techniques one can use to calm down and navigate through the situation productively.

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!

Babies are born with a drive to stay close to a caregiver. This human survival instinct persists into adulthood as the drive to form a secure bond with a partner. No matter how old we are, emotional connection still feels like safety, while isolation feels like danger. It makes sense then that if you don’t feel securely connected to another person, you will be more vulnerable to anxiety. Yet often the anxiety itself makes it difficult for you to form the secure connection you need so much. Emotionally Focused Therapy can help you break this cycle and form secure bonds that serve as both a safe haven when you need support, and a secure base from which you can confidently go out into the world

The demands placed on us to be available, in touch and productive increase with each new technology that appears on the store shelves. The pressures placed on our everyday activities has increased dramatically over the last 20 years. Anxiety arises and intensifies with each new demand and expectation whether it be self or externally induced from obligations at work or home. Managing ever increasing stress and anxiety levels is an on going challenge for each of us. In therapy we identify the sources of our stress and anxiety, set and work goals to find the balance necessary to bring sanity and peace back into our lives. Have you been abused?

Anxiety usually comes from two main sources....anger or fear. Talking with a therapist will help you uncover what is going on in your life now or where you might have unresolved anger about...or what you might fear. Talking through these issues can help difuse your anxiety, and a therapist can be beneficial in offering tools, skills, or simply a new way of thinking about a situaltion. Oftentimes, too, anxiety comes from a negative belief that is sometimes not accurate. You may gain insight and awareness as you challenge some of your belief systems which might be in your way. Looking at the stressors in your life with a therapist will reveal how your liife may by out of balance.

Anxiety occurs when you have several different emotions that build up to the point where you become overwhelmed. I provide a particular approach to anxiety that may not only help you to lower your anxiety threshold (leading to less anxiety and fewer panic attacks), but to identify the myriad feelings that make up your particular type of anxiety. Then, as we figure them out, understand them, and find new ways of expression, it may naturally help lower your anxiety level. We might also use certain stress management techniques that I developed when I taught stress management courses for several years.

Some stress and anxiety are normal. It helps us get things done, like starting a new job or school, moving or getting married.. It becomes a problem when we feel overwhelmed and exhibit physical and emotional symptoms. Physical symptons could include a racing heart, rapid breathing, sweating, trembling and dizzyness. Traumatic events can trigger these responses as well. This is accompanied by negative thoughts such as catastrophizing, overgeneralizing and "shoulds". By providing a safe, peaceful place and proven strategies that work, I can help you sort things out to end the self-perpetuating cycle of harmful stress and anxiwty.

Life can be overwhelming at times resulting in increased anxiety and stress. If you are experiencing difficulty sleeping, worrying constantly, and increased irritability, you can benefit from additional support. Talking about issues you are dealing with may be hard, but avoiding issues can be even more devastating. Lack of sleep and fearful thoughts often do not go away by themselves. Learning new techniques on how to cope with stress and anxiety can improve your relationships, your outlook on life, and your overall health and well being. Reaching out for help is not a weakness, it shows strength and willingness to learn skills to improve your life.

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.

Stress and anxiety play a big role in our lives. We live in an information heavy world, which along with the daily grind of life, can make people feel overwhelmed and anxious. One of the problems is that it isn’t just felt by the person suffering, but by all those around the person as well. That’s why it’s crucial to learn techniques to alleviate your stress. I believe that in order to really work through your anxiety, you need to figure out where it’s coming from and learn your triggers. Reducing your stress will result in better relationships, greater confidence in your abilities, and renewed enjoyment in experiences to just name a few.

Anxiety and stress come from not tapping into your true feelings & vulnerability. I help you go there with compassion and support. We can use hypnosis and many other strategies to keep you calm and get a good night's sleep. Many people don't know they are stressed because it's a normal way of life for them yet they know something is off. We all have stress, even good stress like a new marriage, new baby, a new job or a new home. All good reasons to get some counseling. Meditation is also offered at my office.
