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

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.

We treat anxiety and stress by first helping you identify what may be causing it. Causes may include external stressors (like economic stress or marital stress), or internal stressors like being too hard on yourself, or not feeling fulfilled in life. depending on the cause, we then teach teach you find ways to perhaps think differently about the stressing situation, ways to change your life to reduce the stress, or techniques for stress inoculation such as relaxation training, meditation, or deep breathing exercises. If you have a panic disorder, we teach you specific coping techniques to deal with it in the future.

Stress is a part of life...but ongoing anxiety can negatively impact our well-being, including our relationships, jobs, and families. If you suffer from chronic worrying and the stress is just too much, there IS a better way to live. I will not only help you develop stress management techniques that work for you, but I will also help you shift the way you have typically coped with unwanted thoughts and feelings. Moreover, we can work to build self-awareness and insight into the core reasons behind your anxiety, which typically produces longer lasting transformation.

Individuals experience and process stress and anxiety differently. When the stress hormone, Cortisol, spikes too high, it can reek havoc on the mind and body. Since each person's stress and anxiety manifests differently, each person's anxiety symptoms respond differently to various treatment methods. Anxiety is as diverse as one's DNA. Therefore, I take into account one's family history, environmental influences, past experiences, basic temperaments, hereditary features, etc. to help customize your coping tools for anxiety.

Anxiety usually comes from two main sources....anger or fear. Talking with a therapist will help you uncover what is going on in your life now or where you might have unresolved anger about...or what you might fear. Talking through these issues can help difuse your anxiety, and a therapist can be beneficial in offering tools, skills, or simply a new way of thinking about a situaltion. Oftentimes, too, anxiety comes from a negative belief that is sometimes not accurate. You may gain insight and awareness as you challenge some of your belief systems which might be in your way. Looking at the stressors in your life with a therapist will reveal how your liife may by out of balance.

Stress and anxiety are common feelings we experience. We often need help working through the anxiety producing events and sometimes we just avoid those events all together (which can create it's own stress and anxiety). Together we will confront the events that bring on the anxiety. Using easy to use tools from our therapeutic sessions, you can work on lowering the anxiety and stress and feel more comfortable with living your life to the fullest.

Anxiety Counselor

Lauren Stevenson, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

My approach to the treatment of anxiety is to use the most effective intervention strategies possible. My treatment for anxiety (including panic disorder and OCD) utilizes exposure therapy, which works by helping a person confront a specific fear or memory while in a safe and supportive environment. The main goals of exposure therapy are to help my clients learn that by stopping the avoidance of what they fear, they actually become MORE comfortable and can reduce their anxiety to a substantial degree - all of which opens doors of hope and increases the potential to reach your desired goals with an improved quality of life.

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 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.
