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.

Stress and anxiety play a big role in our lives. We live in an information heavy world, which along with the daily grind of life, can make people feel overwhelmed and anxious. One of the problems is that it isn’t just felt by the person suffering, but by all those around the person as well. That’s why it’s crucial to learn techniques to alleviate your stress. I believe that in order to really work through your anxiety, you need to figure out where it’s coming from and learn your triggers. Reducing your stress will result in better relationships, greater confidence in your abilities, and renewed enjoyment in experiences to just name a few.

How does anxiety and stress play out in your life? It is a vital aspect of our lives, important at very specific times. Yet when anxiety is the ruler and someone is helpless it becomes a life limiting function. Anxiety might also be an avenue to avoid more intense emotional feelings and thoughts. A valuable goal might be to respect and manage one's anxiety and stress in order to live a more free and productive life.

Life can be overwhelming at times resulting in increased anxiety and stress. If you are experiencing difficulty sleeping, worrying constantly, and increased irritability, you can benefit from additional support.

Learning new techniques on how to cope with stress and anxiety can improve your relationships, your outlook on life, and your overall health and well being.

OC Anxiety Center, Ph.D.

Licensed Therapist

In 92660 - Nearby to Westminster.

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.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist 85860

In 90740 - Nearby to Westminster.

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

Is worry or panic disrupting your life? While anxiety is a normal reaction to stress, high levels of sustained stress can be disturbing and can cause distress that interferes with a person's ability to lead a normal life. Many people who suffer from anxiety feel alone and different from others. They may be isolating, socially, experiencing panic, struggling with constant worries, or obsessing over concerns they have little control over. I assist people with anxiety to overcome fears, identify the sources of anxiety, and learn strategies to reduce and manage stress. But most of all, I help them reclaim their peace of mind.
