Anxiety disorders are the most common issue that brings people to therapy. Although anxiety is a normal emotion because it helps us not enter dangerous situations, it can take over people's lives. Treating anxiety issues often involves a combination of learning to tolerate some feelings or normative stress, eliminating negative thoughts that contribute to maladaptive anxiety and developing coping skills to decrease anxiety when is arises. In additions, it is often helpful to process when the anxiety disorder first developed. Sometimes when someone can see the connection between the beginning of the anxiety and the way it has developed, they are able to simply stop the thoughts themselves

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.

Anxiety and stress are two of the most common reasons people seek therapy. Sharing our feelings with family or friends can leave us feeling like a burden to the ones we love. When exercise or a vacation are not enough, therapy can help you learn how to minimize the amount of anxiety and stress in your life. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy has been shown to be an effective tool in the treatment of both everyday anxiety and stress, and the anxiety and stress that result from a traumatic event or crisis. Clients can learn to identify triggers and develop a "toolbox" of ideas to help them manage the often overwhelming feelings that can affect us everyday.

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.

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.

All automatic feelings and behaviors have the intention of keeping us safe. When part of our mind tries to change things that our thinking brain understands aren't happening, that leads to anxiety. I can help that automatic part of your mind be more in tune with the thinking brain that understands what is needed and useful to do. Rapid Resolution Therapy works directly with the unconscious mind to update how it is perceiving the world. I'm excited by the opportunity to share this work with you. larawilling.com

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.

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.

Building your capacity to be aware in the present moment greatly reduces anxiety.

One source of Anxiety is a life-style full of pressure and stress when you may not be sure why you are so driven but you are moving too fast to slow down and find out what you are really feeling. Another, deeper source of Anxiety is an internal conflict in which one aspect of you is pushing in a certain direction and another aspect is either resisting or pulling in another direction. A third source of anxiety is a history of serious life difficulties when you may have been abused, ignored, or mistreated in some way. All of these kinds of anxiety can be helped if we can sit together and understand these anxieties in more depth. and find new and more effective coping mechanisms
