Stress and anxiety are often linked; stress may come from thoughts or events that make you feel frustrated, angry or nervous; in small doses, it sometimes helps you accomplish things. Anxiety is a feeling of fear, unease and worry. The source of anxiety is not always known. Individuals should seek help for stress and anxiety when it is getting in the way of their functioning and/or relationships at home, work, school or in the community. In my work with clients we address the physical aspects of stress and anxiety (racing heart, shortness of breath, sweating, trembling, dizziness), as well as the thoughts, feelings and actions that are sustaining the symptoms.

My approach to anxiety and stress begins with listening to learn what stressors are affecting the client's mood and behavior and determining whether other conditions, such as depression, are a factor. I then focus on developing strategies, including cognitive behavioral therapy and solution-oriented psychotherapy to alleviate the symptoms and help clients move past their anxiety and return to functioning normally.

Anxiety and stress is a common issue which effects many people these days. I feel looking at anxiety and stress from it beginning as the Fight or Flight response. This response has gone haywire and needs to be re-tooled. Using Solution Focused therapy I will create an individualized treatment for the client with them. This treatment will include process of the presenting problem and an increasing level of coping skills to be used to help decrease symptoms of anxiety and stress. Most client respond well with this treatment and do not need long lasting counseling

To most benefit clients with anxiety and stress, I use a Progressive Muscle Relaxation Exercise that the client practices at home. This repetition insures that the client incorporates the relaxation techniques as part of his system to combat anxiety and stress. Stress management techniques also are helpful tools to get past trying times. Moreover, I encourage clients to get out in the fresh air, when possible, and to exercise.

People often use the terms "anxiety" and "stress" interchangeably. Though a certain level of anxiety is a normal, healthy and an adaptive response to our environment, many therapists consider anxiety as an internal compass that indicates areas of possible self growth. For others, living with heightened anxiety and stress on a daily basis can be exhausting and potentially crippling. If you feel your anxiety is getting the best of you and has become a daily burden, then let's talk! Like Depression, there are various treatments models for anxiety that can be extremely effective in giving you back you a sense of control over your life again.

Anxiety is a normal emotion that generates a lot of energy even in stressful situations. Uncontrolled anxiety is harmful and often counterproductive. Understanding the specific triggers of your anxiety will keep them from tipping you over the edge. Applying Cognitive Behavioral Therapy will help you learn different ways of thinking, behaving, and reacting to anxiety-producing and stressful situations. Developing the ability to remain in the present will help you learn how to control and limit the negative effects of anxiety in your life to promote your well-being.

Everyone experiences anxiety and stress. Life happens. So how do we know when we may need help? Some stress and anxiety can push us to produce and achieve something we might not have done normally. An example may be being highly creative with a project just before deadline. When situations arise however, perhaps related to relationships, social encounters, or pressures from work to name a few, are too overwhelming to deal with, therapy can help. In therapy, we can explore what your strengths are and look at how you manage other areas of your life. Together, we can work on coping strategies and how to incorporate them into your life. I will be there to support you!

A simple statement about the states of anxiety, depression and satisfaction might be: Depression is living in the past, Anxiety is living in the future, and satisfaction is living in the here and now. We have habitual patterns of thinking, and whole sets of beliefs underlying those patterns. Escaping from the grip of these is very enlivening. Just by taking the step of reaching out, the process begins.
