Do you feel a constant spinning in the back of your mind? Do you find it hard to fully let go and relax? Does one negative thought take you down a rabbit hole of "worst case scenarios?" - These are just a few of the many challenges of anxiety. The difference between coping with your anxiety on your own, and gaining the support of a counselor is huge! One of the biggest difference is that you are no longer alone with these self limiting patterns and thoughts. I will help to shift your relationship to your stress and anxiety so that you will no longer be victim to your anxiety but instead will have the skills and tools to handle and overcome it in a positive way!

Anxiety and stress can create havoc in an individual's life and the life of their family. My approach to anxiety and stress management includes therapeutic work towards optimizing your interpersonal awareness and then learning coping skills when you feel stress. An assessment of life stressors is also very helpful when working towards eliminating these unpleasant feelings. Learning relational boundaries and creating structure in your life can also be a powerful tool to end your anxiety.

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.

Registered Psychotherapist

Stress is a part of all of our lives. How we react to stress and its impact is very personal. Stress can cause our bodies to release cortisol, adrenaline and hormones that may cause us to go into a fight, flight or freeze response. At times, we can "handle" the stress. Other times, stress that is not worked through or released can impact us emotionally and in our nervous system, physically. Some telling symptoms might include road rage, feel like biting someone's head off, feel a heavy weight on our chest or a fire ball in our gut, these are all symptoms of stress and anxiety. What a terrible way to go through your day. I can help you to relax and process how to make life more manageable.

Behavioral Psychotherapist

Anxiety that interferes with your daily activities? How about a proven program that works within 6-10 sessions? In addition to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy we also offer Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) a safe, FDA approved, non-drug approach to treat depression, anxiety, and insomnia. Its tiny “microcurrents” are thought to stimulate the areas of the brain responsible for neurotransmitter and hormone production. Clinical tests back this up. Increases in cerebrospinal fluid level beta-endorphins up to 219%, plasma beta-endorphins up to 98%, and cerebrospinal fluid serotonin up to 200% have been demonstrated in normal volunteers receiving just 20 minutes of CES treatment

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Certified Sex Therapist

In 80138 - Nearby to Aurora.

Anxiety and stress are a large part of daily life. Stress that is not dealt with can turn into more prominent mental health issues such as anxiety or depression or something else. It is important to note that symptoms of stress can look a lot like anxiety, although a client may not meet criteria for that diagnosis. I help clients differentiate between stress and mental health diagnoses, and establish healthy coping skills to effectively manage/decrease stress and while allowing clients to live healthier lives.

Marriage and Family Therapist

In 80246 - Nearby to Aurora.

Important relationships that are not working well can reek havoc in all aspects of our lives. We can feel anxiety and stress at work, at home and with friends. Understanding where you are getting stuck, identify patterns of relating that are not working well for you, and help you create change that positively impacts how you relate to others will help reduce anxiety and stress. If you are experiencing the end of a significant relationship, having support to grieve and heal is important. If children are involved the anxiety and stress of a family break up is painful and difficult. I can help you navigate these difficulties that limits the negative impact and brings hope and healing.

Anxiety and stress are silently killing our country. It is an epidemic and we all need to look at how we cope with and relate to stress in our lives. I work with my clients to reduce and understand the effects of stress on their quality of living. We look at how stress effects diet, sleep, exercise and relationships and learn new ways to react to the stressors in your life.

Anxiety Counselor

Allison Gomer, MA, MAC

Somatic Healer, Registered Psychotherapist

In 80222 - Nearby to Aurora.

Anxiety can be something that consumes you. However, it doesn't have to be something you survive with day in and day out. The anxiety may feel overbearing, or you may feel you need to control whatever is causing this stress. Many times, allowing space to recognize the root of the cause can be very helpful. With an encouraging, supportive therapeutic relationship, we will look at what is causing your physical, mental, and emotional reaction, as you learn relaxation techniques and grounding exercises to help manage and relieve your anxiety. I will teach you simple ways to decrease negative thoughts and help you find the root of your anxiety, so you can feel better.

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 80203 - Nearby to Aurora.

Anxiety and stress are factors of life that are unavoidable. Yet these things do not need to or deserve to have a place in the life of the client. The positive things about working with anxiety and stress through counseling is that these things have roots and those roots can be pulled. Due to my training and experience of trauma and abuse many perspectives I incorporate in dealing with anxiety and stress are linked to these interventions. They are very effective though some seem quite strange at times. Together we will work hard to find rest from the things that are stealing the joy and passion from your life.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 80210 - Nearby to Aurora.

Anxiety can interfere with your relationships, sleeping patterns, eating habits, work, school, and routine activities, and it is one of the most common reasons people seek therapy. The self-reflective process of therapy helps people understand, unravel, and transform anxiety and learn self-soothing techniques to use if anxiety flares up again. You're able to resume regular activities and regain a sense of control. In my practice, I collaborate with you on a treatment plan, which may include other therapy treatments and lifestyle adjustments to help relieve anxiety, such as stress-management and relaxation techniques, self-care, exercise, and reducing caffeine intake.

Board-Certified Art Therapist, Registered Psychotherapist

In 80014 - Nearby to Aurora.

Anxiety and stress can affect every aspect of our lives. It can feel hard to get through a day and takes so much energy to do so. I use guided imagery, relaxation techniques, and mindfullness techniques to help reduce stress and help you gain a sense of personal control. I also feel it is important to help my client feel safe in my office. We will explore some of the unconscious and underlying beliefs so you may come to feel more of your own power.. Art work helps clients take control. As an art therapist, I pace my clients so that they proceed at a comfortable pace. Often examining irrational beliefs and replacing them with more realistic beliefs helps a person gain self-confidence.
