Everyone experiences stress and anxiety but sometimes it gets to a point where it is hard to manage on our own. My job is to provide you the tools to help you decrease these feelings. Depending on the diagnosis, symptoms and severity, we will come up with a treatment plan that would be most effective for you. All treatment plans will include relaxation techniques and learning ways to manage those "what if" thoughts. Other techniques include exposure therapy, assertive skills and setting limits with others. As a team, we will get you through this together.

I go by the motto “the more you scare yourself, the more you grow.” This is why I encourage every my clients to scare themselves daily and sit with the fear that comes up. I call this the “Leap of Faith.” You see, the more you can experience the vulnerability of fear, the more likely the chance that you will not experience the anxiety related to it down the road. Each time you face your fears, you gain more CONFIDENCE, and this confidence/faith is the key to everything.

Anxiety and Stress are prolific and rampant in our society. So many individuals walk around feeling constantly plagued by anxiety and stress. Believe it or not, we all have a choice whether or not we are controlled by stress and anxiety. I work extensively with individuals suffering from anxiety. You do not need to live a life where anxiety is controlling you, vs. you controlling it. Through our therapy process I will help you implement skills and a way of being which will not only minimize anxiety, it will also allow you to control it.

Babies are born with a drive to stay close to a caregiver. This human survival instinct persists into adulthood as the drive to form a secure bond with a partner. No matter how old we are, emotional connection still feels like safety, while isolation feels like danger. It makes sense then that if you don’t feel securely connected to another person, you will be more vulnerable to anxiety. Yet often the anxiety itself makes it difficult for you to form the secure connection you need so much. Emotionally Focused Therapy can help you break this cycle and form secure bonds that serve as both a safe haven when you need support, and a secure base from which you can confidently go out into the world

Are you worrying about life on a daily basis? Do you constantly feel on edge, have difficulty falling or staying asleep? Together, we will work to reduce your overall, level, frequency and intensity of anxiety, as well as stabilizing your anxiety level so that you can increase your ability to function on a daily basis. We will do this by identifying what has happened or is currently happening in your life that forms the basis for your present anxiety. Sometimes, anxiety is a response to difficult, real-life stressors and other times it is a response to stressors from your past. Either way, therapy is an effective way to combat anxiety. You don't have to suffer.

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.

I specialize in anxiety, fear, worry, and stress. My motto is "manage your life not your anxiety" because too many people spend their lives trying to work around their fears, distract from their anxiety, and avoid scary body sensations. I understand because I was affected by an anxiety disorder that controlled my life for many years. Today, I am helping others get their lives back and start experiencing joy and calmness.

I handle anxiety and stress in many ways but a few ways are through TRAUMA counseling, I can use EMDR which is a way to handle almost any trauma, Brain Spotting, or Havening Touch. All these methods are gentle and can be used on children as well. I also love the 12 step models for using good boundaries and just sometimes learning how to say NO. I was trained by Pia Melody, a master in teaching her CoDependence method. I have also used Hypnosis in the past and can easily use Visualization for my clients. I always give homework for my clients to continue the work at home. Many clients don't know that after they leave my office their therapy keeps on working and may manifest in change!

Anxiety is an inability to be fully relaxed. It is mental and physical tension. Many things cause it and many things perpetuate it. Not all anxiety is bad or needs to be extinguished. I work with the client to understand the meaning of their anxiety. I find sometimes people are not consciously aware of the real reasons they cannot feel relaxed. Enlisting the client's sense of curiosity about their own thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations I aim to identify their symptoms of anxiety and the origins of them. I utilize cognitive behavioral and mindfulness strategies to identify and replace unhelpful thoughts with more productive ones.

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.

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.

I work with many patients who are struggling with anxiety and stress, whether it is due to relationship or life pressures, difficult family dynamics, or long-term individual anxiety that is preventing them from experiencing life in a freer, stronger, more peaceful and productive manner. We work together to determine the underlying causes that have produced (or may be continuing to provoke) their anxiety; then we focus on ways to see their lives and their problems more clearly, giving them more ability to have realistic expectations & more impact on their life situations. I help them find (and practice) concrete ways to reduce stress in their lives, increasing strength and lessening anxiety.

We live in stressful times and many people struggle with anxiety that can range from simple daily worry to debilitating fear. Identifying the triggers underlying anxiety, big or small, can help you develop strategies for dealing with the thought patterns and fixed beliefs that are preventing you from living life to the fullest. As we begin to process your anxiety together, we may find that it is caused by past trauma or events in your family history. Developing skills to cope with immediate anxiety, while slowly working through past trauma or family issues can help to decrease the experience of anxiety in daily living, as well as in your life, overall.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 90293 - Nearby to Silver Lake.

We go through our days with constant demands on us-caring for our children, our partners, work, $, laundry, school-the list goes on. Often, we don't pay attention to how stressed and anxious we actually are. Stress can cause physical ailments, it is not just "in our heads". Too much stress is just plainly not good for us. Stress can be managed, it can even be used for good. I can help you become more aware of how stress is experienced in your body and mind. We will use the stress that is inevitable in your life and redirect it towards productivity. I will help you regain control of stress and tell it to "chill out", so that you can be present and enjoy the people and events of life.

Anxiety and stress is one of the most common reasons for seeking therapy. Anxiety can be triggered in many ways and therefore, it can manifest and impact us in many ways. Living anywhere, especially in a large city such as Los Angeles, can create day-to-day stress, which then has the potential to impact one’s anxiety. Anxiety and stress can also impact one’s sexual needs, as well as be a result of such issues. Goals that target both anxiety and stress can be achieved with the right therapist by your side. I appreciate you trusting your therapeutic needs with me.

Licensed Psychotherapist, Eating Disorder Specialist

In 90212 - Nearby to Silver Lake.

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.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Certified Chaplain & Grief Counselor

In 91001 - Nearby to Silver Lake.

My approach to stress and anxiety is to help people reduce their tendency to be perfect or becoming demanding of themselves or others. Stress and anxiety will happen due to life demands or due to various role conflict in our life when we are trying to do too much. People will beneift from my approach as I help people learn how to ask for help, set their boundaires over what they can and cannot control, learn how to surrender and let go, and seek relaxation techniques such as exercise, healthy eating, meditation, and engaging in fun and meaningful activities. Learning how to say no and where to ask others to help you can also be beneficial.

Anxiety and stress must be tended to on multiple fronts. If you are seeking help with anxiety and stress today, you are looking for immediate relief. I will work with you to identify immediate lifestyle changes, coping skills, and tools that may make anxiety more manageable. There is no quick fix or immediate cure, but some changes truly help. Anxiety often has deep sources and is an adaptive response to conscious and unconscious beliefs about yourself and the world. This type of therapeutic work moves more slowly as we work together to fully understand who you are, your unexplored ideas of who you are, and arrive at new places of understanding that can be freeing and calming.

Without a doubt, the most common problems that people come to see me is related to anxiety and stress in their lives. Quite often they feel unsettled, scared, confused, and frustrated when they first come to see me. Some have panic attacks as well. This is a terrible way to live. And here's some good news: anxiety and stress can be treated, quite often with great success. I like to take a good history to see how much of your anxiety and stress is related to current circumstances, perhaps an underlying health condition, and possible genetic causes. Then we can explore different treatment options that work for you. I like to use a collaborative approach. This gets the best results.

My clients benefit from a mindfulness approach to managing anxiety and stress. I have extensive experience working with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and victims of crime and early childhood trauma including physical and sexual abuse. Through processing trauma in the psychotherapeutic process and learning to implement mindfulness techniques like meditation, progressive muscle relaxation, and the Emotional Freedom Technique, clients learn skills that are both meaningful, practical, and effective in reducing stress and anxiety.

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.
