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 seem to the two factors that are running most people's lives. Between, work, performances, home, family, friends, returning phone calls and emails and all the additional pressures of life, stress and anxiety can simply become overwhelming. Counseling and psychotherapy has an outstanding track record for helping people cope with their anxieties and stressors in life. The therapeutic relationship established by a professional counselor often substantially decreases and relieves the wave of anxiety that can paralyze anyone. Counseling along with if needed medical intervention will under most circumstance return needed control, comfort and success.

Anxiety Counselor

OC Anxiety Center, Ph.D.

Licensed Therapist

Anxiety, panic, and phobia treatment are OCAC's sweet spot. This is where we do 95% of our work. The other 5% is in related disorders. If you find your thoughts controlling you or find yourself unable to step away from what you know are irrational thoughts, there are solutions. Many patients hear “Just relax" from friends and family, and while momentary exercises like breathing or meditation may help some, they really only subside surface symptoms of underlying cognitions that really need to be addressed. The inability to “just relax” will often exacerbate anxiety further, and there is a reason. If your needs are beyond common stress management, our average treatment is 14 weeks.

Stress and anxiety can go undetected and can cause major health problems. Conversely, some health problems can cause stress and anxiety. After ruling out a medical problem through a physical examination from your MD, a person experiencing anxiety and stress should seek help from a Psychologist. A licensed counselor can help a person to learn about the signs of stress within the body, discover ways to manage stress and anxiety, and effectively use stress to motivate a person and promote healthy change.

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

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

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 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.

Anxiety Counselor

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

In this fast-paced world of many challenges and pressure to keep up, stay involved and be successful, we often find ourselves worried that our "best" is simply not good enough. Stress and axiety are common reasons many seek counseling and I believe this is the beginning of the solution. Many do not realize they are contributors to their own distress by setting unreasonably high standards and expectations for themselves. Still, others contend with life's pressures and demands which are placed on them by other circumstanes. PTSD is a devastating disorder many face in the wake of war, poverty and the breakdown of their support systems. I am passionate about finding solutions together.
