Whether stress/anxiety results from pushing oneself too hard or needing to be too perfect, or from an over-active limbic system that just won't seem to turn off, or from current or past trauma(s), several approaches offer relief when they are used to effectively target the source of the problem: Voice Dialogue, EMDR, Cognitive-Behavior Therapy, Relaxation Training and self-soothing techniques, Assertion Training, Mindfulness, Neurofeedback. All or a combination of these can work to alleviate symptoms and heal the problem. Sometimes they are used in conjunction with short-term or longer-term medications. An exercise and nutritional program can also be extremely beneficial.

Anxiety and stress are among the most common symptoms people experience in their everyday lives. When these start to feel uncontrollable, it may be time to seek assistance. I will start where you are, learning from you what issues are contributing to your anxiety and stress, how long these issues have been contributing to your stress level, what you have tried to do so far, what you may have thought about but haven't yet attempted, and barriers you have that maintain these stressors in your life. Together, we will practice ways to prioritize your issues, allow you to tackle them individually, and develop relaxation techniques to help you through this process.

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.

Stress is a part of life...but ongoing anxiety can negatively impact our well-being, including our relationships, jobs, and families. If you suffer from chronic worrying and the stress is just too much, there IS a better way to live. I will not only help you develop stress management techniques that work for you, but I will also help you shift the way you have typically coped with unwanted thoughts and feelings. Moreover, we can work to build self-awareness and insight into the core reasons behind your anxiety, which typically produces longer lasting transformation.

Stress is a part of our everyday life, so much that living a life without stress seems surreal. Anxiety can be a result of the day to day stresses that are related to personal life, work life, and school life to name a few. A minimal amount of anxiety and stress in specific situations can be the motivation needed to complete tasks, power through exams and overcome the impossible. Learn how to calm and relax your mind by using visual techniques such as creating a safe place you can visit during times of intense stress and discover healthy and effective ways in which you can help relieve your mind and body of undesired anxiety and stress.

In this fast-paced world of many challenges and pressure to keep up, stay involved and be successful, we often find ourselves worried that our "best" is simply not good enough. Stress and axiety are common reasons many seek counseling and I believe this is the beginning of the solution. Many do not realize they are contributors to their own distress by setting unreasonably high standards and expectations for themselves. Still, others contend with life's pressures and demands which are placed on them by other circumstanes. PTSD is a devastating disorder many face in the wake of war, poverty and the breakdown of their support systems. I am passionate about finding solutions together.

Anxiety Counselor

Vicki Asher Wills, PsyD, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Clinical Psychology Doctor

Within driving distance of Placentia

Counseling for Anxiety & Stress involves a combination of addressing the external, situational stressors and the client's internal responses to those stressors. I work with my clients to determine where they have control and how they can better exercise that control to reduce anxious feelings, and how to more effectively handle those situations in their lives that are beyond their direct control. I teach clients new stress management skills, practice creating and maintaining healthier boundaries in stressful relationships, and provide new ways of thinking about circumstances to reduce anxiety.

Panic, anxiety, and stress rob you of your freedom. Freedom to go places, freedom to do things, and freedom to be with people you love. The fear makes your world small. Using proven methods, called cognitive-behavioral methods, I help you walk your way out of the fear and back into freedom and into your life again. You do not have to stay the victim of fear. Let me show you how.

We live in a world where anxiety and stress run rampant and relaxation and exposure to sounds and visuals that restore and calm us are few. Often our stress comes from our external circumstances, and also from the internal themes we carry within us. Working from both the outside and the inside can help reduce the amount of anxiety and stress we naturally think we must sustain because we have for so long.

The demands placed on us to be available, in touch and productive increase with each new technology that appears on the store shelves. The pressures placed on our everyday activities has increased dramatically over the last 20 years. Anxiety arises and intensifies with each new demand and expectation whether it be self or externally induced from obligations at work or home. Managing ever increasing stress and anxiety levels is an on going challenge for each of us. In therapy we identify the sources of our stress and anxiety, set and work goals to find the balance necessary to bring sanity and peace back into our lives. Have you been abused? Have you experienced Trauma, PTSD? EMDR Trained

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. Contact Kevin@kevinfleminphd.com for the ultimate stress and anxiety solution that will literally change your brain's autonomic nervous system patterns while you sit on your butt. 877-606-6161.

I find that the most important part of working with anxiety and stress is to work with creating a safe environment to explore and work on these feelings together. This is an important goal. Without safety, and a feeling of genuine and concern and compassion for you, I do not think we will be able to get very far. From here learning to approach, tolerate and understand what makes you anxious and stressed out, the things you avoid talking about and are fearful about being overwhelmed by are the things I want to help you master. So much of anxiety is feeling smaller than what we are up against. Getting confidence in yourself and coping effectively with your anxiety is what I will help you do.
