Anxiety and stress are two things that bring many people to seek therapy. When I work with a client that wants to overcome anxiety and/or stress, I like to help him or her understand how to recognize the early signs of anxiety and stress, and help the client to identify coping mechanisms that will empower the client to overcome feelings such as being overwhelmed and/or paralyzed.

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.

Anxiety is a general term for states, ways of being, or disorders that cause nervousness, fear, apprehension, and excessive worry. Anxiety affects how we feel, think, and behave, and can manifest real physical symptoms. Mild anxiety is vague and unsettling, and can be a normal response to stressful situations. Severe anxiety can be extremely debilitating and seriously impact day-to-day life: it interferes with your relationships and activities, it stops you from being functional—that’s when you know you have crossed the line from normal, productive anxiety into the territory of an anxiety disorder and it's time to get help.

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 and fear are reactions to perceived threat - universal emotions experienced by us all. When anxiety is out of control, it causes us pain and distress, often preventing us from doing the things we want to do. Fortunately, anxiety is among the most treatable psychological problems. I help my clients change their relationship to anxiety through processes such as learning mindfulness skills to handle painful thoughts and feelings, developing awareness of destructive thought processes, increasing emotional flexibility and clarifying core values. While suffering is an inevitable part of life, it is also an opportunity to learn, grow and expand - a springboard to a rich and meaningful life.

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.

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.

Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) If you feel uncontrollable or excessive anxiety and worry more days than not during any six month period, you may be experiencing Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). You may feel constantly on-edge, irritable, tired, unable to concentrate, complain of muscle tenseness or have other physical complaints, or your sleep pattern may be disturbed. If anxiety or worry is creating emotional distress, hindering your life, or causing you a lack of achievement or satisfaction in your life, even if you are not experiencing panic attacks, a psychotherapy consultation for General Anxiety Disorder is recommended and I would welcome your inquiry.

Anxiety and stress are obviously two of the most common therapeutic issues we deal with in this modern world. In my work with clients who are suffering from anxiety and stress, I focus on helping them rebalance or reprioritize the areas of their lives so they can feel in charge again.

I assist adults in understanding causes of their current anxiety and identify the triggers that lead them to an anxious state. Teaching you how to mitigate your anxiety through positive strategies, breathing techniques, and nutritional and physical exercises, has been a primary focus of my 30+ years of clinical practice. I assist children/adolescents in helping them to build the courage to approach what they would rather avoid, minimizing their fear and maximizing their ongoing capacity to take risks throughout their lives. Early intervention is key in minimizing the impact of anxiety throughout a lifetime.

Every person out there can relate to feeling anxiety or stress at some point in their life. However, it is a different story when that stress or anxiety impedes your ability to function on a day to day basis. For those who struggle in this manner, it is difficult to convey how horrific the experience is. After working in the field and helping people successfully overcome debilitating anxiety, I truly believe that psychotherapy and the right treatment approach can help anyone become the best version of themselves. It has always been a pleasure of mine seeing the transition take place and knowing that treatment has made such a difference for so many who never thought they could do it!
