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.

In treating anxiety, the most impotant issues is interupting the cycle of worry, obessing over worry, fearing the return of worry, and allowing worry to spread to every aspect of your life. Discriminating realistic reasons to worry from irrational reasons can help clients with excessive stress to cope. Interupting and redirecting thoughts of anxiety to more productive thoughts and activities will interupt the cycle that creates habitual anxiety. We will look at times you may over-react to triggers (be it an upcoming social situation, or a stumbling block that creates more stress and predictions of failure). We will take this path together. You are not alone.

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....

Anxiety and stress have a powerful presence in modern life, intricately woven into the fabric of our days. Pressure to perform optimally dictates our personal and professional arenas, and yet we blame ourselves for how anxiety has it's way with us. Productivity is a rampant and influential player in how we measure ourselves, and the self help movement proclaims there is always room for improvement. How do we find leverage over anxiety and stress? How do we carve a place for ourselves despite it? These are some of the questions that are important to explore in order to better understand the phenomenon of anxiety and stress that is permeating our lives.

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.

As the late Claire Weeks once wrote, “Anxiety is nothing more than over-sensitized nerves kept alive by bewilderment and fear.” I can help you create an action plan to heal over-sensitized nerves and manage your stress more effectively. Develop your ability to recognize the stress response more quickly and respond in ways that: reduce fear and anxiety and increase self-mastery.

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.

There is an old saying that "stress kills". You cannot function fully when stressed and you must do something about it. There are two types of anxiety. One is a normal reaction to a stressful event. The other is an abnormal reaction which can continue to plague you throughout your life. Anxiety can become overwhelming and debilitating. In time, your anxiety may generalize where you may experience anxious feelings and not even know why. Together we can help you to rid the anxiety from your life. To deal with anxiety you must confront it as the symptoms associated with it will only subside by looking at the source of the anxiety and being proactive in tackling the stress you feel. Feel free to call....

It has been show that stress leads to increased cortisol levels which can be very damaging to the human body. I believe that incorporating mindfulness techniques can be very beneficial to individuals dealing with high levels of stress and anxiety. I often incorporate mind-body techniques in my therapeutic approach to stress and anxiety. I work with clients to alleviate these symptoms in an effort to maintain a healthy mind and body.

One of the most common problems people seek therapy for is anxiety whether it’s about daily stressors or a specific event or situation. Struggling with anxiety and stress can leave you feeling exhausted and defeated. It can negatively affect your ability to function in different areas of your life. My hope is for people struggling with anxiety to learn healthy ways of coping with stress, identify triggers that lead to anxiety, and gain a new perspective.
