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 can feel overwhelming and at times debilitating. Stress can increase this anxiety to even more unmanageable levels. Learning ways to manage stress can help reduce the anxious feelings.

Anxiety often serves a useful function for humanity when it is not overused, facilitating us keeping our responsibilities and agreements, and remaining ethical and moral in our behavior. Yet, anxiety, leading to stress is the most common dysfunctional problem in today's high pressured world where stressors abound. Anxiety when overused, like too much anger, is self destructive to our minds and bodies. My therapy style assists you to get to the root of your anxiety, determining what secondary gain you may be getting from this behavior and weighing it against the cost. I can assist you to get to the source of your anxiety and learn behaviors thta will serve you and your family better in life.

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.

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.

You may have incessant thoughts racing through your mind, you can't stop analyzing, and you are stuck in the future catastrophizing about possible outcomes, or ruminating about your past choices and life experiences. Your body state is heightened and on-the-go. You try to relax because people tell you so but it doesn’t work. You wonder why you can't just 'let things go" and "go with the flow" just like many other people do. With anxiety, we get stuck either in the past or the future. Our near-constant mind chatter and physiological arousal deprives us of being in the present moment and cherishing invaluable daily moments. Instead, you find yourself wanting to control things to lessen your a

Depression, anxiety, excessive worry, and challenges in relationships are rooted in insufficient emotional attunement in formative years. After providing you practical and effective tools that lower anxiety and reduce stress symptoms in the moment; I focus on really attuning to your experience and helping you experience being accepted. As our relationship develops, I find it normal that you will internalize an internal ability to experience yourself as acceptable. After this happens, you will find that the normal "pain in the ass life experiences" that you find will still be there, but you will have a different sense of self that will allow you to navigate them a deeper sense of self!

Much of anxiety and stress are related to the negative messages we send ourselves. We worry about what others think of us, what may happen in the future, and how we acted in the past; just to name a few. Because much of anxiety is based in our thoughts; a large portion of the work we do in this therapy is to challenge our thinking. By challenging our negative thoughts, we can experience a more positive shift in emotions and behaviors. We will also discuss and practice mindfulness strategies as a way to work on being more present in the moment and decrease the focus on negative repetitive thinking. Relief from anxiety is possible with effective skills.

There is no right or wrong way. You take what works for you and apply it to your life.

In 94523 - Nearby to Piedmont.

Anxiety and stress are actually two different things. Where stress usually comes from actual and identifiable challenges, anxiety tends to be more arbitrary in that there isn't necessarily one specific cause. However, both anxiety and stress tend to develop based on one's specific context--that is what one has experienced through their lifetime. While some anxiety and stress is actually good for us (i.e. propels us toward action), excessive amounts can create both emotional and physical challenges. I work with clients from a top-down/bottom-up approach, working to help the brain to better control the bodily effects of stress and anxiety and the body to control the brain.

Anxiety can arise from several places - one is the mind - people can think & imagine scenarios in their minds that create anxiety, when their thoughts and imagination may not even be true. Anxiety is also common in people who did not have a safe & secure experience with caregivers as they were growing up. The brain ends up being wired in a way that reproduces anxiety. Fortunately, due to new research in the field of neuropsychology & neuroplasticity, this can be changed!

Because anxiety is a unique experience from person-to-person, we start by learning about your anxiety. Through dialogue and exploration, we help you map your anxiety and how it shows up in your thinking, emotions, actions and ultimately in your relationships. Having a map as a building block may help you develop a response plan for when symptoms of anxiety begin to fester. Using a blend of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness and dialectical behavioral therapy to develop a wise-mind approach to life and reactive emotions is how we approach anxiety. From there, we explore your psychological and emotional needs to help you build insight on what to do about them.

While most treatment approaches for anxiety and stress are effective on the surface, they don’t treat the real problem. Mantras, deep breathing, and rational dialogues about your fear being irrational rarely work---for most people don’t believe it or you! Imagine if you can trick the brain into changing without you telling your conscious mind that you are changing it? Problem with anxiety and stress is that the brain in this state knows you want to change it and it resists.

There is an almost infinite list of causes for anxiety and stress, probably a few more if you live in a metropolitan area. Maybe your anxiety is decades old from trauma, family of origin, or chemically related. Perhaps it's situational and can be attributed to a recently suffered trauma, is work related, or relationship related. When you are stressed out or anxious, your brain doesn't function optimally. Instead, it functions in crisis mode and impairs your decision making ability and leaves you feeling too drained for the rest of your life. I will help you to regain your control by giving you concrete strategies and tools to manage them.

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.

Anxiety can be difficult for some to identify and sometimes it's hard to distinguish anxiety from depression. Anxiety and depression can be so closely knit that teasing them apart can be the first step towards generating understanding and emotional change. I will work collaboratively with you to understand what your personal and unique experience is with your anxiety. We will explore your history and make links between your past and present to help increase awareness and develop new ways of coping with your anxiety. My style is warm, empathic, and collaborative and I will work hard to help you better understand and manage your anxiety.

I begin by understanding how you experience anxiety/stress because how you experience them is unique for you. Then we begin to increase your tolerance for how you experience anxious/stressful thoughts, feelings, memories, and/or situations. This is necessary so the anxiety/stress stops being an overwhelming experience that interferes and gets in the way of your life. It's crucial to be able to become more comfortable when you experience anxiety/stress because they're a part life. The problem is the distressing and limiting to debilitating effect they have on you. As you learn to be able to do this, you will begin to experience more peacefulness, calm, hope, self-confidence and self-esteem.

Anxiety and stress are most common conditions that result in physical ailments, disease and impairment in living. I show you how to use the whole body to both contain stress responses and to find a more solid, stable foundation with which to process anxious and stressed places. These are usually aspects of ourselves that do not feel safe or supported- so grounding in the whole body, breathing, letting the body unwind tension allows for a way to not get caught up in these stress patterns. Rather we then learn how to enter into the places of anxiety/stress- so that these parts of ourselves feel safe to experience, express and release what they have been carrying- including unresolved traumas.

Anxiety feeds on the demand for certainty and comfort, and during these incredibly crazy times, we find these two staples to be in short supply! No wonder you are feeling stressed and anxious right now. The key to working with your anxiety is to befriend it - as anxiety-provoking as that may sound - because having a relationship with anxiety will actually help you to understand what it needs and how to soothe it when uncertainty and discomfort are the prevailing themes of our time. I can help you to do the scary but courageous thing - to hold it and listen to it, drawing it in and providing it with the safety, warmth and welcome it has been longing for!

But there are tools and processes that can restore us to a more peaceful normal. Using a blend of EMDR and energy psychology tools we can bring your anxiety symptoms down from totally controlling your life to getting you back to living your life again.
