We all have worries. A little bit of stress can motivate us and be helpful. Too much stress, however, can be overwhelming for anyone and it will take a toll on your mind and body. It may impact your sleep and overall mood. Why do we do this to ourselves? Yes. You may have a lot on your plate and there may even be some things outside of your control. Let me tell you though, you do have the ability to more effectively manage the stress. Let me help with the tools to do so.

Some stress and anxiety are normal. It helps us get things done, like starting a new job or school, moving or getting married.. It becomes a problem when we feel overwhelmed and exhibit physical and emotional symptoms. Physical symptons could include a racing heart, rapid breathing, sweating, trembling and dizzyness. Traumatic events can trigger these responses as well. This is accompanied by negative thoughts such as catastrophizing, overgeneralizing and "shoulds". By providing a safe, peaceful place and proven strategies that work, I can help you sort things out to end the self-perpetuating cycle of harmful stress and anxiwty.

Life can be overwhelming at times resulting in increased anxiety and stress. If you are experiencing difficulty sleeping, worrying constantly, and increased irritability, you can benefit from additional support. Talking about issues you are dealing with may be hard, but avoiding issues can be even more devastating. Lack of sleep and fearful thoughts often do not go away by themselves. Learning new techniques on how to cope with stress and anxiety can improve your relationships, your outlook on life, and your overall health and well being. Reaching out for help is not a weakness, it shows strength and willingness to learn skills to improve your life.

When anxiety and stress become overwhelming, it has the power to keep you from feeling like yourself. It takes away from your ability to be present in your day to day experiences, makes it difficult to enjoy your relationships, and takes your energy and time away from important things. You may not have control over stressful situations, but you can be empowered to handle them constructively and not be debilitated by anxiety. In the safety of therapy, we can explore and understand your stressors, identify constructive coping tools for you to draw on, and process through and release the burden of anxiety so that you can be free to enjoy the life you deserve.

Anxiety can either be genetically based, or it can be a learned condition based on early family programming or the pressures of an increasingly demanding and technology-based environment. Learning how to live in the moment and how to detach from worry and perfectionism is often itself the goal of effective psychotherapy.

The modern world we live in is full of amazing technological advancements and organizational wonders, but it is also more complex and demanding than ever before. The myriad competing demands of our lives, how busy we are, the continual pressure to do and be more creates enormous stress for all of us. This stress can escalate into anxiety and the added strain of these issues easily begins to short-circuit our ability to function at our best, to feel good, to maintain relationships and responsibilities. I can help you understand the internal and external forces creating these negative feelings, and together we can find strategies for minimizing stress and anxiety so you can feel better.

Life has a way of making us feel overwhelmed and out of control at times. Stress and anxiety can build up and consume your thoughts and feelings. I believe that by exploring unmet needs from the past, people can develop healthier relationships today. By working through painful losses and wounds, people can release unhelpful beliefs about themselves and others in order to live more fully in the present and with hope for the future. We are hurt in relationships; we are also healed in relationship, and the therapeutic relationship can be a useful resource. If you are ready to take the next step I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!

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.

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.

It is a given! The issue is not that we have anxiety, rather it is not being able to make sense out of what is making us anxious. Anxiety is a warning signal that something is wrong and we need to be alert to what we need to take care of ourselves. Anxiety changes when we can be in dialogue with someone who can help us understand what the surrounded issues are that need our attention. Being alone in our anxiety keeps us trapped. Being connected in our fear changes it. This is what good therapy does. It provides a space to no longer be alone in your anxious feelings. Being responded adequately in your fear allows confidence and peace to return.

California Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

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.

Tools are specific for your wounds. Stress and anxiety limits our capacity to really connect with life and with love. Anxiety and stress often stems from wounds in the core of the personality that are long ago forgotten. Buried feelings can keep you so wound up and compulsive that you can't relax and feel present. Anxiety can keep you stuck living "in your head" disconnected from the rich, full life you are meant to feel! Don't settle, learn to use the tools to release anxiety and stress!
