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.

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 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.

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.

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.

The modern world we live in is full of amazing technological advancements and organizational wonders, but it is also more complex and demanding than ever before. The myriad competing demands of our lives, how busy we are, the continual pressure to do and be more creates enormous stress for all of us. This stress can escalate into anxiety and the added strain of these issues easily begins to short-circuit our ability to function at our best, to feel good, to maintain relationships and responsibilities. I can help you understand the internal and external forces creating these negative feelings, and together we can find strategies for minimizing stress and anxiety so you can feel better.
