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.

Anxiety and stress come from not tapping into your true feelings & vulnerability. I help you go there with compassion and support. We can use hypnosis and many other strategies to keep you calm and get a good night's sleep. Many people don't know they are stressed because it's a normal way of life for them yet they know something is off. We all have stress, even good stress like a new marriage, new baby, a new job or a new home. All good reasons to get some counseling. Meditation is also offered at my office.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

My primary area of expertise is the treatment of Anxiety Disorders. There are different anxiety disorders such as Panic Disorder, Agoraphobia, Social Anxiety Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Specific Phobia, PTSD and more. My therapeutic approach for the treatment of anxiety consists of: educating my client about their specific anxiety, teaching coping mechanisms to reduce stress/anxious mood, learning to interrupt the development of anxiety that leads to unpleasant physical manifestation and confronting behaviors and thoughts that maintain ongoing anxiety. It is imperative to work on my client's issues that perpetuates anxiety and distress.

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.

California Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 91103 - Nearby to Van Nuys.

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.

Anxiety is both inherit in our genes as well as manifested from reactions to our environment. Learning how to regulate ourselves during stressful moments can empower us and help us achieve more from life.

Over time, with mindfulness you can learn new ways to adapt to life stressors and feel more empowered in the process.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 93063 - Nearby to Van Nuys.

Everyone can feel some level of anxiety once in a while. But overwhelming, recurring, or "out of nowhere" fear can deeply impact people. Sometimes anxiety can cause fatigue, irritability, difficulty focusing, sleep problems and muscle tension. When anxiety interferes like this, therapy can really help. Together, we will figure out the most troublesome issues, develop a treatment plan, and tackle the goals at a comfortable pace. I utilize cognitive-behavioral therapy, but also incorporate other modalities when helpful (i.e. exposure therapy, systematic desensitization, relaxation).

It can be hard for people who experience various challenges to have the confidence or desire to approach a professional. Not only we are generally too embarrassed to ask for help in unraveling our feelings, healthy functional people suffer the double stigma. Since they are used to being highly functional in most, if not all aspects of their lives, when they face unfamiliar emotional challenges it can be hard to accept or understand it. In many occasions it is not easy to say: hey, I am dealing with something that I don’t have the tools to resolve! I truly care about them and want the best possible results.

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.

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.

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.

Anxiety and stress can have a huge impact on not only your mental health, but also your physical health (sleep, appetite), your relationships with others and your regular activities of daily life.

Do you relate to any of these thoughts or beliefs? I can’t do it. It’s too overwhelming. I feel stuck. It’s too hard. I feel crazy/I’m going crazy. I can’t get it right! What’s wrong with me?! What’s the point?? I’ve worked with a lot of women, and I hear these words all the time. It may seem like you’re alone right now, but you are so NOT. As women we’re quick to feel isolated---like there’s something wrong with us. I’m here to help you see you’re not alone. You’re not crazy. When we feel stuck, we start believe there’s no hope. Knowing something is off is incredibly powerful! It allows you to move towards change. You don’t have to stay stuck and there is HOPE for you. I can help!

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 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.
