I work with my clients to help them understand the differences between stress and anxiety. In both cases, I practice supportive, interactive psychotherapy in which I help my clients become insightful about the sources of their stress or anxiety. In treating anxiety disorders, I have found Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and/or a gradual approach to Exposure Therapy to be helpful. I generally refer my clients who suffer from anxiety to a colleague psychiatrist, with whom I work collaboratively, for medication management. In working with my clients who present with either disorder, I often teach strategies like meditation, relaxation training and journaling as a part of my therapeutic approach.

With therapy, we work towards having a better relationship to anxiety, which eventually changes the anxiety itself. Using mindful awareness of the body and thoughts, and bringing in compassion, you can learn how to respond differently to fear and stress. You can override your instinctual responses to stress by finding calm - even if not in the moment initially - and eventually create new mental pathways of more tolerance and ease in difficult experiences.

Are you struggle with anxiety, worry, and stress so much so that it interferes with your well-being and sense of inner peace? I offer an effective, highly-researched form of treatment called EMDR (which stands for Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing). This form of therapy combines thoughts, feelings and body experiences to "unstick" negative memories or experiences that are at the root cause of distress. Contact me for more information. Let's tackle this together.

In addition to being a licensed Marriage Family Therapist, I am also a ceritified Somatic Experiencing Practitioner as developed by Dr. Peter Levine, and a certified Structural Integration Practitioner as developed by Dr. Ida Rolf. Using these body-based technologies in what we call a "bottom up" approach to anxiety and stress is a lot more effective than the "top down" approach of traditional Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. That's because anxiety and stress are artifacts of the reptillian brain and limbic system not the neocortex where CBT works.

Did you know that if you had a traumatic birth you can be predisposed to anxiety? If you had early trauma and it is unresolved, current stress can trigger anxiety. When you come to see me for anxiety, I will provide an assessment and then I will decide which Lifespan Integration protocol to use to free you from that anxiety. Then I will provide you with new strategies to cope with anxiety, but usually Lifespan Integration will do that for you. For more info go to Lifespanintegration.com. I do provide a free consultation, when clients ask me.

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 and stress have the ability to build up uncontrollably until we are so overwhelmed that we hardly know what to do with ourselves. With rising challenges and demands at work and at home, anxiety and stress have become a daily part of life for most people. These issues can get so burdensome that we hardly have the capability to see the underpinning nuances of our life experiences that are so connected to these feelings. I can help you see the big picture of your life through dialogue so that you can identify how various parts of yourself are interconnected. This will empower you to make the changes that you want or need in working through these tumultuous feelings.

Anxiety and stress are felt when life overwhelms the capacity to experience. When events are too much to bear, too much to make sense of, or tolerate, we feel stress or anxiety. If unable to be with challenging life events we are left in this anxious state, held hostage by what cannot be digested or made sense of. I help people decrease stress and anxiety by increasing their ability to more fully inhabit themselves and be with their own experiences so that events of the past and present can be lived in and more comfortably felt. A sense of self, self-confidence, capacity, and control is restored.

Trying to balance work commitments and family can often cause a great deal of stress and anxiety. I can help you find better ways of coping with life's stressors while helping you create balance for your specific needs. Sometimes anxiety seems to appear out of nowhere and that could very confusing and isolating. For deeper rooted causes of anxiety, I use Cognitive-Bahavioral-Therapy and EMDR. CBT helps you understand the thought processes that may be causing your anxiety. EMDR helps us explore some past traumas that maybe getting triggering anxiety and then work to desensitize the trauma for more relief from the symptoms.
