Anxiety and stress are part of the human experience, but do not have to rule your life. Reducing stress and anxiety is one of the primary goals of psychology. My approach to treating anxiety is very behavioral, and goal-oriented. There are proven techniques that are incredibly effective for reducing anxiety. I believe in taking a compassionate view of what my clients are struggling with, but also moving quickly to elevate their stress.

Anxiety and stress are a natural part of life. I can help you build a toolbox of inner skills based on mindfulness, movement, breath and more so that you can manage stress rather than allowing it to run your life. Therapy that includes nature can also help you remember that everything you’re going through is part of a natural cycle that is always changing. You can find relief in knowing that the objects of your worries are not permanent and that you can adapt to these changing conditions.

There are few things worse than anxiety and stress. This may present itself as a base level constant companion that is tolerable but painful, or it may present itself as an almost debilitating feeling of impending doom. However stress or anxiety presents itself in your life, it sucks. Anxiety has been described as "future fear," which makes it particularly asinine, because it can seem impossible to pinpoint. Talking through your stresses, anxieties and fear with a psychotherapist can be very helpful. There are also a number of tools and techniques that are extremely effective.

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 at the right amount can be motivating and enlivening. But too much leads to an overwhelm of your nervous system, where it feels like the smoke alarm is always going off and you can't relax or feel into your comfortable, competent self. My approach to working with anxiety is to help you become aware of the specific moments when it arises, find ways to reduce the triggers, and feel into the experience deeply enough so that certain triggers don't hold the same power over you. The more we can strengthen your internal sense of self by building safe experiences, the more you can begin to reduce your anxiety and stress. My goal is to help you feel happier and more secure.

Marriage and Family Therapist

3445 Penrose Place, Suite 250, Boulder, Colorado 80301 | (720) 504-8489

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 is about the future! "What if I.....?" "And what if she.....?" Think of it as stage fright. "They wont like me." et cetera. You torture yourself with low level probabilities about furute negative consequences to your actions. It can be immobilizing and very self-limiting. I can teach you to devleop the skills of mindfullness in daily life. When you live more fully in this moment, you are less caught up in the possible failures of the next moment. This may sound easy but it is not. It requires weeks of concerted practice to break free of the habit of thinking about what might happen next. But when you do, you open yourself up to a more peaceful existence.

Stress, anxiety, and even panic have two components in our systems. 1) The stimulus, or the things that triggers the stress/anxiety/panic, and 2) our response to it. It is far too common for people to reduce the scope of their lives in an attempt to control or reduce the stimuli that are anxiety provoking. In session, we will spend more time developing awareness of, and mastery over our physiological responses to the stimuli using my ABC method of self-knowing. As you develop the ability to respond and reduce fight/flight responses to stressful stimuli, regaining choice and trust in your body, unhealthy and unwanted responses will reduce.

Clinical Psychologist

1650 38th St.--Suite 206E, Boulder, Colorado 80301 | 303-449-2996

Often clients are upset not only with the stressful situation. Of more concern usually is their reaction to such a situation, and of course if a person is in a fight with him/herself, then the outcome will be unsatisfactory no matter who wins. Frequently the system is drained of energy and nobody wins. Therapy provides an understanding of what is really going on under the surface, plus offers a variety of ways to restructure the system so that the external problem can be addressed. The problem itself may not be resolvable, but stress and anxiety do have solutions.

Stress and occasional anxiety are part of the human condition. We live in a stressful, emotionally charged, complicated world. When daily stressors or acute anxiety begin to interfere with living a healthy and happy life, help is available to guide you towards greater life contentment, emotional peace, and positive coping. I help you work directly with your thoughts to challenge mistaken belief systems or negative thinking patterns that may be contributing to your worry, uneasiness or panic. We can also examine personal history or current lifestyle patterns that may be increasing your unease and also find symptom relief for the physical discomfort anxiety can cause.

Stress and anxiety are the most common complaints I hear from my clients. Having racing worry thoughts, tightness in your chest, consumed by fear and even panic attacks are incredibly uncomfortable and unbearable at times. I understand how stress and anxiety can get in the way of doing what we want or need to on a daily basis. I will help you implement skills to better manage stress and anxiety for a lifetime. Some examples include: self soothing techniques, guided relaxation and meditation, movement and cognitive restructuring.

Anxiety and stress are a part of everday life and effect all of us. The key is how you deal with your anxiety and stress. Many times the things we are most anxious about are things that we either have no control over or things that have gotten really big in our minds. Stress also has a variety of causes, both real and imagined. No matter what the issue is, I can help you put it into perspective by pointing out that which you have no control over, pulling the issue apart so you can understand what is your responsibility and using deep breathing methods to help calm you down. Reducing your level of stress and anxiety will make you happier and healthier.
