Panic, anxiety, and stress rob you of your freedom. Freedom to go places, freedom to do things, and freedom to be with people you love. The fear makes your world small. Using proven methods, called cognitive-behavioral methods, I help you walk your way out of the fear and back into freedom and into your life again. You do not have to stay the victim of fear. Let me show you how.

My treatment approach prioritizes interventions that increase resilience, bravery, and control in the things that can be controlled. We all experience anxiety and stress throughout our lives. However when chronically unmanaged, anxiety and stress can start to negatively impact productivity, relationships, happiness, and physical functioning. I have extensive training in integrative mind-body interventions including biofeedback, mindfulness for stress reduction, and compassion focused therapy. All of which are designed to decrease unhelpful anxiety, stress, and related physical symptoms, while increasing inner strength, self-esteem, and empowerment to take control of your well-being!

Conflict in relationships is inevitable and when couples cannot find resolution, anxiety builds. Often, this leads to shutting down or blowing up--both triggering behaviors that can drive a wedge between two people. As co-therapists, we help couples find ways to maintain differences while staying connected. Intimacy also triggers old unresolved issues that create stress. These old wounds have nothing to do with our partners. We help couples understand how these memories can interfere in the repairing with your partner.

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.

Anxiety is a necessary message that you need to pay attention to something that is at dis-ease in the body. My focus, using Burns techniques, is to help the individual find what they need to hear from the anxiety/stress while giving them very specific tools to distract the unnecessary messages. I show them body relaxation techniques as well as breathing exercises to lessen their tension and stress.

Adolescent & Emerging Adulthood Specialist

In 90401 - Nearby to South Gate.

It takes an act of courage for sensitive young adults to learn to trust and believe in themselves. It takes self-awareness for them to learn to speak their truth. I help sensitive young adults to develop the self-love necessary to fully accept themselves. Ultimately, the key to living a peaceful life lies in knowing who you are and what you feel. I help young people stand strong in what is true for them. I help my clients learn to not waste their time looking to others for approval. Through our work together, I help young people to discover their authentic self-expression and embark on the journey of the dream for their life.

People rarely come to counseling when their anxiety first starts causing them problems. Most people try to handle it on their own and try the “white knuckle” approach until they are exhausted and overwhelmed. Often life becomes unmanageable and depression sets in when anxiety is not dealt with. Anxiety commonly focuses on illogical things that may seem foolish or kind of crazy, so you have kept these to yourself. Don’t keep struggling alone. Call me so I can help you reduce the hold anxiety has on you and restore freedom to live your life fully again. Contact me at 714-751-0888 and I promise I won't think you are crazy.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 90293 - Nearby to South Gate.

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.

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 is something we experience when our circumstances feel too demanding for our control. We can feel the symptoms of stress both emotionally and physically. Stress can cause us to feel anxious and out of control. Therapy can help to reduce the feelings of stress and anxiety by reframing these situations. It's a safe place to talk about the problems you are feeling anxious about and to work on different solutions to these problems. My framework is a problem solving approach but with a search for a deeper understanding as to why these situations may be causing anxiety and stress.

Kristen Caron, MA, MFT

Licensed Psychotherapist, Eating Disorder Specialist

In 90212 - Nearby to South Gate.

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.

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. Mindfulness Meditation is easy to learn, has no side effects and is very cost effective. You can use it as a tool for stress management or for deepening your spiritual growth and practice. There is no right or wrong way. You take what works for you and apply it to your life.

Over the course of time, a client may start to experience increased anxiety and find themselves beginning to become more and more tentative as they approach their relationships and personal and professional goals. I provide a comprehensive assessment, that takes into account biopsychosocial (biological, psychological and social) areas of life, and together we are able to develop a holistic and integrative plan that is adjusted to the client's changing life circumstances. When clients redesign their approach to life, they have greater insight, are transformed, and better skilled to attain a higher degree of life satisfaction.

Psychotherapist

In 90026 - Nearby to South Gate.

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 can leave many clients feeling completely powerless. I would empower clients to take control of their anxiety by separating themselves from their anxiety and working towards their preferred relationship with anxiety. I would encourage clients to use mindfulness to decrease their anxiety by focusing on the present moment, acknowledging their anxiety, and accepting that their anxiety will not last forever.

People have different thresholds and levels of stimulation that are ideal for them. Too little and it is difficult to engage, to be interested. Too much and the mind races, has difficulty focusing, and you become anxious and exhausted. The right amount creates focus, creativity and productivity/efficiently. This can translate into your level of stress. Too little and it’s difficult to be motivated. Too much and it’s counter productive. The right amount helps you become engaged and focused. In Counseling we explore and find what you need to manage your stress & anxiety?
