Anxiety occurs when you have several different emotions that build up to the point where you become overwhelmed. I provide a particular kind of approach to anxiety that may not only help you to lower your anxiety threshold (leading to less anxiety and fewer panic attacks), but to identify the myriad feelings that make up your particular type of anxiety. Then, as we figure them out, understand them, and find new ways of expression, it may naturally help lower your anxiety level. We might also use certain stress management techniques that I developed when I taught stress management courses for several years.

I’d like to offer you 3 quick tips on managing the stress or anger in your life. Although I’ve written more extensively on this in other publications, this is just a quick, short list of three things you can do to tone things down a notch and improve your life. First, make sure that you are exercising regularly. While you exercise, become aware of what is bothering you. As you focus on your stressors, let the physiological energy generated by your anger or angst be burned off by your body. Let the exertion cleanse you… body, mind and soul. This is what I call Anger Work. Second, use “On-the-Spot Tension Tamers.” These are helpful when you are in the middle of a conflict or stressful meeting....

Stress and anxiety are often the root causes leading to unhealthy coping mechanisms such as addiction and eating disorders. By evaluating triggers for stress and/or anxiety and developing healthy coping strategies (often with cognitive behavioral interventions), patients learn to self regulate and experience significant mood improvement. When necessary, referrals for medications are made as an adjunct to psychotherapy.

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.

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.

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.

Most days, everyone experiences anxiety and stress on some level. The problem arises when the anxiety begins to interfere with normal functioning and you become paralyzed to be more productive. Anxiety can be a specific fear (worries about safety/security) or more generalized where you just constantly feel “anxious” and do not know why. When you are in that state, it is hard to recognize the triggers, or what thoughts/behaviors may be exacerbating your symptoms. Therapy helps to uncover those patterns while also offering techniques to stop them from being debilitating, so you can move forward with a more satisfying, productive everyday life.

The approach that I have found most helpful in working with people with anxiety and stress issues is helping them FIRST learn to slow down and relax. I have been trained and have worked for many years with victims of trauma who experience enormous amounts of stress. First, teaching coping skills and then exploring the underlying cause for the anxiety and/or stress. People with anxiety often report various symptoms ranging from having difficulty concentrating, being afraid to do things they used to do, having headaches, sweating a lot, having hypertension, fatigue, heart palpitations, and sexual dysfunction. Often, people with anxiety have limited support because they are embarrassed or....

If you are struggling with feelings of anxiety or depression a wonderful tool is to learn about Mindfulness Meditation. Once you learn the simple steps, you can practice a little as five or ten minutes daily and see the results immediately.
