You might be longing for change that can bring some sense of peace to the anxiety and stress you carry daily but are afraid of the unpredictable and the unknown and find yourself moving aimlessly from one distraction to another. The relationship between therapist and patient has a context, a sharing of subjective experiences that cannot help but play out in unique and meaningful ways. Because every human being and each individual's process is unique, I won't put you through a series of pre-determined exercises or fit you into some theoretical model. I work in collaboration with you to explore and discover the context of your anxiety thereby helping you to manage it more productively.

I often find that the lack of emotional regulation in a person's young life has left them with a huge ability to be anxious and feel stress. Teaching emotional regulation is the first avenue I try. Discovering the thought life of an anxious person gives many clues as to what is feeding the anxiety. I have found using DBT or CBT as methods to retrain and reduce anxiety to be very useful.

Anxiety is an emotion about expectations, perfectionism and looking to the future. We hold anxiety in our bodies; we develop anxious behaviors and often disorders develop which involve panic. We can get caught up in the beliefs driven by society of pursuing happiness externally. Anxiety comes in many forms manifested from the conditioned belief of “not being good enough and seeking that place, the place of outer validation and acceptance.” Sometimes our beliefs are only habits and we think without them we would not know how to be in the world. To let go of these old beliefs would be frightening. Our first step is self-compassion. Compassion reminds us that we do belong, as surely as we have been lost in obtaining approval from others rather than...(view profile to read more)

Everyone feels anxiety at some point in their lives but when it starts to interfere with your life, counseling can help. Although anxiety can feel debilitating, it is treatable. People with anxiety don’t always share the same symptoms, they vary from person to person. Therapy will help you to reclaim your life and function in a chronically stressful world.

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.

Licensed marriage and family therapist (#17142)

In 93065 - Nearby to Santa Paula.

Many of my clients come in suffering from anxiety and stress. I have a wide range of tools to help with these symptoms. First we try to determine the immediate causes of stress and anxiety, and try to remove or lessen them if possible. Then we try to make any lifestyle changes that we can. Next we implement anxiety management tools, including relaxation training, breathing techniques, mindfulness, and perhaps hypnotherapy if appropriate. Most clients experience at least some relief very quickly, and relief of most if not all symptoms with time and practice of the skills we work on. Give a call, and together we'll see what we can do for your stress and anxiety.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Clinical Psychology Doctor

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.
