Anxiety and Stress comes in many shapes and forms. Some people cope by putting on a mask and forcing themselves to go out like nothing is wrong. Only to end up feeling empty and exhausted. Others shut down and isolate because the panic and overwhelming stress is just too much. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy will teach you to how to cope when your emotions are so intense that you cannot think clearly and how to cope once you've calmed down so that you can reduce the intensity and frequency of your anxiety and stress. You will learn how to catch and challenge escalating anxious thoughts. You will also learn to give yourself permission for self-care and set healthier boundaries with others.

Did you know that another word for anxiety is fear? Anxiety, by its very definition, is fear of the future. And,fear leads to stress. You become anxious when you fill your mind with thoughts that scare you. In other words, you make yourself anxious by the thoughts you tell yourself. That is actually very good news, because if you can make yourself anxious by what you think, you can learn to think differently and shoo that anxiety away. And, if you can identify the underlying cause of your anxiety too, that help prevent future anxious moments. With group therapy and/individual sessions, you can learn to identify what you fear and why you feel anxious and what to do about it.

We go through our days with constant demands on us-caring for our children, our partners, work, $, laundry, school-the list goes on. Often, we don't pay attention to how stressed and anxious we actually are. Stress can cause physical ailments, it is not just "in our heads". Too much stress is just plainly not good for us. Stress can be managed, it can even be used for good. I can help you become more aware of how stress is experienced in your body and mind. We will use the stress that is inevitable in your life and redirect it towards productivity. I will help you regain control of stress and tell it to "chill out", so that you can be present and enjoy the people and events of life.

Over the course of time, a client may start to experience increased anxiety and find themselves beginning to become more and more tentative as they approach their relationships and personal and professional goals. I provide a comprehensive assessment, that takes into account biopsychosocial (biological, psychological and social) areas of life, and together we are able to develop a holistic and integrative plan that is adjusted to the client's changing life circumstances. When clients redesign their approach to life, they have greater insight, are transformed, and better skilled to attain a higher degree of life satisfaction.

My approach to the treatment of anxiety is to use the most effective intervention strategies possible. My treatment for anxiety (including panic disorder and OCD) utilizes exposure therapy, which works by helping a person confront a specific fear or memory while in a safe and supportive environment. The main goals of exposure therapy are to help my clients learn that by stopping the avoidance of what they fear, they actually become MORE comfortable and can reduce their anxiety to a substantial degree - all of which opens doors of hope and increases the potential to reach your desired goals with an improved quality of life.

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 is one of the most common reasons for seeking therapy. Anxiety can be triggered in many ways and therefore, it can manifest and impact us in many ways. Living anywhere, especially in a large city such as Los Angeles, can create day-to-day stress, which then has the potential to impact one’s anxiety. Anxiety and stress can also impact one’s sexual needs, as well as be a result of such issues. Goals that target both anxiety and stress can be achieved with the right therapist by your side. I appreciate you trusting your therapeutic needs with me.

Together we will choose and try out ways of helping you through stress and anxiety. Thought-stopping, examining illogical thoughts, self-talk, and hypnotherapy are a few of these techniques.

The benefits of therapy for people who suffer from anxiety are the reduction of symptoms, and the development of greater well-being. Anxiety is a kind of friction among the moving parts of the self, an internal conflict that is distracting, depleting, and highly unpleasant. It is closely linked to stress, to boredom, and to fear of sadness. Rather than struggling, we can collaborate to turn toward the source of the anxiety and try to resolve it at the roots.

I go by the motto “the more you scare yourself, the more you grow.” This is why I encourage every my clients to scare themselves daily and sit with the fear that comes up. I call this the “Leap of Faith.” You see, the more you can experience the vulnerability of fear, the more likely the chance that you will not experience the anxiety related to it down the road. Each time you face your fears, you gain more CONFIDENCE, and this confidence/faith is the key to everything.

At its core, anxiety and stress is fear. A stressed or anxious person might not think of it as the feeling of fear, but fear is what drives a person to worry and tense up. My clients have frequently told me how they cannot help it, that life just piles heavy responsibilities and problems onto their shoulders. This is true, that life hands us unthinkable challenges. That is exactly why you cannot afford to let anxiety and fear take over your mind--fear and worry cannot solve a single thing, but give you emotional suffering. I know how to help you better manage your stress and anxiety. Therapy does not take your problem away, but it helps you gain control over your stress and anxiety.

In the past decades we have learned so much about the way our brains and bodies work together in order to help us survive. We are hard-wired to feel and react to threatening events in our environment - it tells us we are in danger. These thoughts, along with the accompanying feelings, can become overwhelming if we obsess on them without finding possible safeguards or solutions. Psychotherapy can help by identifying stressors and anxieties, helping you understand how you are thinking about problems, adapting to certain situations, managing the emotions related the related emotions, and working on self-care (sleep, nutrition, exercise, medical treatment of anxiety disorders).

Stress and anxiety are often the root causes leading to unhealthy coping mechanisms such as addiction and eating disorders. By evaluating triggers for stress and/or anxiety and developing healthy coping strategies (often with cognitive behavioral interventions), patients learn to self regulate and experience significant mood improvement. When necessary, referrals for medications are made as an adjunct to psychotherapy.

You might be longing for change that can bring some sense of peace to the anxiety and stress you carry daily but are afraid of the unpredictable and the unknown and find yourself moving aimlessly from one distraction to another. The relationship between therapist and patient has a context, a sharing of subjective experiences that cannot help but play out in unique and meaningful ways. Because every human being and each individual's process is unique, I won't put you through a series of pre-determined exercises or fit you into some theoretical model. I work in collaboration with you to explore and discover the context of your anxiety thereby helping you to manage it more productively.
