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.

People have different thresholds and levels of stimulation that are ideal for them. Too little and it is difficult to engage, to be interested. Too much and the mind races, has difficulty focusing, and you become anxious and exhausted. The right amount creates focus, creativity and productivity/efficiently. This can translate into your level of stress. Too little and it’s difficult to be motivated. Too much and it’s counter productive. The right amount helps you become engaged and focused. In Counseling we explore and find what you need to manage your stress & anxiety?

The approach that I have found most helpful in working with people with anxiety and stress issues is helping them FIRST learn to slow down and relax. I have been trained and have worked for many years with victims of trauma who experience enormous amounts of stress. First, teaching coping skills and then exploring the underlying cause for the anxiety and/or stress. People with anxiety often report various symptoms ranging from having difficulty concentrating, being afraid to do things they used to do, having headaches, sweating a lot, having hypertension, fatigue, heart palpitations, and sexual dysfunction. Often, people with anxiety have limited support because they are embarrassed or....

In treating anxiety, the most impotant issues is interupting the cycle of worry, obessing over worry, fearing the return of worry, and allowing worry to spread to every aspect of your life. Discriminating realistic reasons to worry from irrational reasons can help clients with excessive stress to cope. Interupting and redirecting thoughts of anxiety to more productive thoughts and activities will interupt the cycle that creates habitual anxiety. We will look at times you may over-react to triggers (be it an upcoming social situation, or a stumbling block that creates more stress and predictions of failure). We will take this path together. You are not alone.

I provide counseling for anxiety and stress at the Narrative Couples Center. Through collaborative conversations, we discover alternatives that can replace the oppression of anxiety. Are you wanting peacefulness, more balance, less overwhelm? I look at how problems interfere with people’s hopes, and use a strength-based approach that supports resourcefulness.

Conflict in relationships is inevitable and when couples cannot find resolution, anxiety builds. Often, this leads to shutting down or blowing up--both triggering behaviors that can drive a wedge between two people. As co-therapists, we help couples find ways to maintain differences while staying connected. Intimacy also triggers old unresolved issues that create stress. These old wounds have nothing to do with our partners. We help couples understand how these memories can interfere in the repairing with your partner.

Anxiety is both inherit in our genes as well as manifested from reactions to our environment. Learning how to regulate ourselves during stressful moments can empower us and help us achieve more from life. I can help you develop a unique plan that better equips you with tools to manage your anxiety. Over time, with mindfulness you can learn new ways to adapt to life stressors and feel more empowered in the process.

Stress or anxiety don’t always get in the way, but sometimes they do. Learn to identify the sources, recognize how they stop you, and change the impact they have on you and your life. Learn how old patterns shape your self-image, self-esteem, and expectations, and discover new ways of dealing with that. Fear doesn’t have to stop you from having what you want in life. And, sometimes it’s a valuable asset, like knowing which is the lion and which is the lamb. Psychotherapy with me helps you to sort out when to listen to the fears and when they no longer apply. You’ll also learn coping strategies that can help when you’re caught up in the fear. Your fears don’t have to control you.

One of the most common problems people seek therapy for is anxiety whether it’s about daily stressors or a specific event or situation. Struggling with anxiety and stress can leave you feeling exhausted and defeated. It can negatively affect your ability to function in different areas of your life. My hope is for people struggling with anxiety to learn healthy ways of coping with stress, identify triggers that lead to anxiety, and gain a new perspective.

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.

Anxiety and stress have a powerful presence in modern life, intricately woven into the fabric of our days. Pressure to perform optimally dictates our personal and professional arenas, and yet we blame ourselves for how anxiety has it's way with us. Productivity is a rampant and influential player in how we measure ourselves, and the self help movement proclaims there is always room for improvement. How do we find leverage over anxiety and stress? How do we carve a place for ourselves despite it? These are some of the questions that are important to explore in order to better understand the phenomenon of anxiety and stress that is permeating our lives.
