Anxiety Counselor

Rudi Lion, MA, MFT

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

2020 Alameda Padre Serra, Santa Barbara, UNITED STATES

I use a very practical approach to anxiety and stress by simply exploring what it is that puts you in a state of overwhelm. We then look together for ways to decrease your stress be it by either 'adjust your thinking' or by making small but effective changes to your daily living. Anxiety and perfectionism often go hand in hand, we will therefore explore how much internal 'unnecessary' pressure you put on yourself and find ways to decrease that pressure.

Anxiety Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Santa Barbara, 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.

Anxiety Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Available for Online Therapy

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 Counselor

Daryl Temkin, Ph.D

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Available for Online Therapy

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.
