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.

Stress is a part of our everyday life, so much that living a life without stress seems surreal. Anxiety can be a result of the day to day stresses that are related to personal life, work life, and school life to name a few. A minimal amount of anxiety and stress in specific situations can be the motivation needed to complete tasks, power through exams and overcome the impossible. Learn how to calm and relax your mind by using visual techniques such as creating a safe place you can visit during times of intense stress and discover healthy and effective ways in which you can help relieve your mind and body of undesired anxiety and stress.

At its core, anxiety and stress is fear. A stressed or anxious person might not think of it as the feeling of fear, but fear is what drives a person to worry and tense up. My clients have frequently told me how they cannot help it, that life just piles heavy responsibilities and problems onto their shoulders. This is true, that life hands us unthinkable challenges. That is exactly why you cannot afford to let anxiety and fear take over your mind--fear and worry cannot solve a single thing, but give you emotional suffering. I know how to help you better manage your stress and anxiety. Therapy does not take your problem away, but it helps you gain control over your stress and anxiety.

We all have stress and anxiety; the question is how we deal with them. Therapy can teach various ways of handling these natural states so that they do not hold us back from reaching our goals. Together we will choose and try out ways of helping you through stress and anxiety. Thought-stopping, examining illogical thoughts, self-talk, and hypnotherapy are a few of these techniques.

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.

Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

In 91107 - Nearby to Valinda.

Big or small, anxiety has a way of effecting our lives. Anxiety not only effects those who struggle to do, but also, those who are already doing so much. We can minimize it, rationalize it, and tell ourselves it's circumstantial but the truth is anxiety is the very thing that keeps you from feeling connected to the moment and those around you. In our work together, I will help you cultivate techniques, strategies and mindsets unique to you that will help you to reclaim your life, allow you to be present to the moment, and create a feeling of wholeness. If you're ready to feel less stress and live in a more meaningful way I'd love to meet you and see how I can support you in your journey.

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....

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?

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.

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.

It is a given! The issue is not that we have anxiety, rather it is not being able to make sense out of what is making us anxious. Anxiety is a warning signal that something is wrong and we need to be alert to what we need to take care of ourselves. Anxiety changes when we can be in dialogue with someone who can help us understand what the surrounded issues are that need our attention. Being alone in our anxiety keeps us trapped. Being connected in our fear changes it. This is what good therapy does. It provides a space to no longer be alone in your anxious feelings. Being responded adequately in your fear allows confidence and peace to return.

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.

Anxiety can either be genetically based, or it can be a learned condition based on early family programming or the pressures of an increasingly demanding and technology-based environment. Learning how to live in the moment and how to detach from worry and perfectionism is often itself the goal of effective psychotherapy.

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

We all have worries. A little bit of stress can motivate us and be helpful. Too much stress, however, can be overwhelming for anyone and it will take a toll on your mind and body. It may impact your sleep and overall mood. Why do we do this to ourselves? Yes. You may have a lot on your plate and there may even be some things outside of your control. Let me tell you though, you do have the ability to more effectively manage the stress. Let me help with the tools to do so.

Some stress and anxiety are normal. It helps us get things done, like starting a new job or school, moving or getting married.. It becomes a problem when we feel overwhelmed and exhibit physical and emotional symptoms. Physical symptons could include a racing heart, rapid breathing, sweating, trembling and dizzyness. Traumatic events can trigger these responses as well. This is accompanied by negative thoughts such as catastrophizing, overgeneralizing and "shoulds". By providing a safe, peaceful place and proven strategies that work, I can help you sort things out to end the self-perpetuating cycle of harmful stress and anxiwty.
