Anxiety Counselor

Jennifer Twardowski, MA, AMFT

Holistic Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Newark

My approach to working with anxiety and stress management is integrative. I like to incorporate the use of mindfulness, breath work, guided imagery and body-based therapies as well as a psychodynamic and experiential approach to help uncover potential underlying causes for the anxiety and stress. With this kind of approach, I've helped clients feel calmer, more relaxed and more in control of their reactions to daily stressors and experiences.

Is the weight of the world on your shoulders? Is it difficult to get up in the morning and face the day, even though it was difficult to fall asleep and turn off your mind the night before? Are your relationships suffering because you feel stressed and worried most of the time? A little anxiety can be a positive push toward action, but too much anxiety and stress are unhealthy and unhelpful. I can help you learn to de-stress with relaxation techniques and anxiety management. It doesn’t have to be this hard.

Our busy lives provide plenty of anxiety and stress. Some stress is normal, even helpful. But if you feel tense, anxious, or fearful most of the time, worry and obsess about the future, or feel psychological tension is beginning to affect your physical health, it may be time to get help. I use a variety of techniques to help people manage stress, including guided imagery, meditation, and EMDR, which is very effective for those whose anxiety stems from previous emotional wounds or trauma. No matter what approach we choose, I'll make sure you feel safe, supported, and free to explore the causes of your anxiety and stress so you can overcome them and take back control of your life.

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.

Anxiety Counselor

Alice Locke-Chezar, MFT, ATR

Marriage & Family Therapist, Registered Art Therapist

Within driving distance of Newark

Anxiety is a debilitating disorder that deprives people of their happiness and sense of well-being. I work with children and adults to help alleviate their suffering. Together we explore their anxiety "triggers" e.g. what brings on their anxiety, and work with question those assumptions. Next I help my clients learn how to use tools to combat the thoughts that can paralyze and torment them and bring their negative thoughts back under their control, helping them to feel happy and confident once more.

Anxiety Counselor

Jason Esswein, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Anxiety is an internal alarm system that gives us information about our internal state as well as possible danger in the external world. Often, anxiety is a signal of deeper, more intense emotions such as sadness, anger, and fear. It can also be a consequence of not living authentically. Once these deeper feelings are identified and expressed, they can be readily released. For example, when we say "Yes" when we really mean "No," we will often experience anxiety. In this case, the anxiety is providing us with a warning that we are not being honest (living authentically) with ourself and/or another. Therapy is the perfect place to explore this common emotion.

Anxiety Counselor

Charis Khoury, MA, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Newark

I can teach you specific tools to help with anxiety and stress reduction on the physical level. We may also explore the deeper causes of anxiety, your history, and how to find ground in the midst of uncertainty. It is easy to become anxious when our minds are consumed with thoughts of the past or future speculations. By guiding awareness, I will help you to return to the present moment even as we talk, to feel your body and senses in the here and now. Building your capacity to be aware in the present moment greatly reduces anxiety.

You're not crazy, but anxiety can make you feel that way. Do you or your child worry about things a great deal, even when you know it is not reasonable? Do you or your child find yourself unable to relax? Do you or your child become easily angered or frustrated? Do you or your child have sleeping problems, digestive concerns, and cannot sit still? If you've answered "yes" to any of these questions, you may want to consult with an anxiety therapist like myself to determine if you're suffering from anxiety, so you can receive the therapy you deserve.

Fear can affect our quality of life in powerful ways. It can interrupt our sleep. When anxious, one may isolates them self from others who would otherwise offer us companionship. Fear rob us of opportunities for sex or romance. When we are afraid, we are not ourselves. The primitive physiological responses of fear are related survival or are about having no hope at all. You can learn to calm yourself, so the world appears more objectively. We are actually better able to protect ourselves, when we are able to distinguish what is factually dangerous and what is safe. When we relax, we are able to see creative possibilities in our relationships and our work.
