Anxiety Counselor

Adam Dorsay, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

1120 McKendrie Street, San Jose, California

Being alive means experiencing at least some anxiety and stress. There are "optimal" levels of anxiety and less-than-optimal levels as well. If you are experiencing too much anxiety, it can feel debilitating and compromise your ability to perform or be present in life. If you are experiencing too little anxiety, you might not feel engaged or care much. With optimal levels--which is what I attempt to assist my clients in achieving--you feel motivated but not hampered in your day to day experiences.

Marriage & Family Therapists, Certified Hakomi Psychotherapy

800 Pollard Rd. Suite B-201, Los Gatos, California

Anxiety can range from mild stress that is manageable to overwhelming stress that turns into traumatic activation. Through our somatic and relational therapies, you can feel whole again. Together, we look for what strengths and abilities you have that can be built on. Somatic resources generate an awareness of the sensations in the body that feel pleasant and grounding for the client and help them mediate the debilitating symptoms of trauma. Often clients don’t recognize the symptoms of trauma and are dealing with anxiety, fear and depression on their own. Many trauma clients do not seek therapeutic assistance right away, either because they don’t take the traumatic experience seriously or they think that “time will heal” or because of shame and...(view profile to read more)

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 seem to the two factors that are running most people's lives. Between, work, performances, home, family, friends, returning phone calls and emails and all the additional pressures of life, stress and anxiety can simply become overwhelming. Counseling and psychotherapy has an outstanding track record for helping people cope with their anxieties and stressors in life. The therapeutic relationship established by a professional counselor often substantially decreases and relieves the wave of anxiety that can paralyze anyone. Counseling along with if needed medical intervention will under most circumstance return needed control, comfort and success.

3880 S. Bascom Ave. Suite 101, San Jose, California

Stress and Anxiety are normal emotional experiences of life, yet they can be debilitating if not understood nor managed well, and the good news and hope is that the intensity of each emotion can be reduced substantially upon education, process, and learned skills. We all live with expectations of self and others which generates normal levels of stress yet with too much stress perspective, purpose and meaning can be compromised. It is easy to be under the control of anxiety and stress and not fully recognize this, yet what is hopeful is how the process can be reversed to discover how you can control your anxiety and stress appropriately.

Anxiety Counselor

Jason Esswein, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

San Jose, California

Anxiety is an internal alarm system that gives us information about our internal state as well as possible danger in the external world. Often, anxiety is a signal of deeper, more intense emotions such as sadness, anger, and fear. It can also be a consequence of not living authentically. Once these deeper feelings are identified and expressed, they can be readily released. For example, when we say "Yes" when we really mean "No," we will often experience anxiety. In this case, the anxiety is providing us with a warning that we are not being honest (living authentically) with ourself and/or another. Therapy is the perfect place to explore this common emotion.

Anxiety Counselor

Robin Bates-Pualuan, MS, LMFT, LPCC

Marriage & Family Therapist, Professional Clinical Counselor

2155 S. Bascom Ave., Ste. 203, Campbell, California

Is the weight of the world on your shoulders? Is it difficult to get up in the morning and face the day, even though it was difficult to fall asleep and turn off your mind the night before? Are your relationships suffering because you feel stressed and worried most of the time? A little anxiety can be a positive push toward action, but too much anxiety and stress are unhealthy and unhelpful. I can help you learn to de-stress with relaxation techniques and anxiety management. It doesn’t have to be this hard.

Anxiety Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

San Jose, California

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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

1925 S. Winchester Blvd, Suite 106, Campbell, California

We live in a high-anxiety culture where there are a lot of demands and expectations placed on us from either work, family, ourselves, or all of the above. Therapy can help you offload your worries so that you don't have to carry them alone. If you are experiencing more specific anxieties such as panic, phobias, and social anxiety, I can can also help you address and work through these so that you can live a more calm, fulfilling life.
