Anxiety seems to have a life of its own. Fear of having anxiety brings more anxiety, even panic. What does one do when anxiety, stress and panic hit? Seems everything that is done makes it worse. Anxiety, stress, panic attacks, seem to come out of nowhere & present with a pressure/demand to “do something” to make them stop or go away. Is it all chemical imbalance…fear from the past or present-a new situation…a fear of the future & what can or might happen...all of the above? I help my clients with understanding of their lives, the roots of their personal anxiety & struggle with it, by providing a safe place and skills that provide “breathing room” to break free from the grips of anxiety.

Many, if not most, of us experience symptoms of anxiety and stress at times throughout our lives. Being human in an unpredictable world leaves even the most unflappable individuals shaken by trauma, loss, and unexpected change. During therapy we discover the roots behind these symptoms, we work to understand the nature of trauma, we utilize time-tested principals that help diminish the symptoms, and we discuss, as needed, the help of other professionals along the way -- such as nutritionists, physicians, and spiritual directors.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is an evidenced based therapeutic approach that has been shown to help people be relieved of stress and anxiety. It is our beliefs and thoughts creating these negative emotions. This is good news! This means that we can work together to identify, address and restructure the very beliefs and thoughts that are causing such distress in your life. Call me today if you are looking for a solution provided in a caring, supportive and judgement free environment.

Anxiety is that feeling that you give yourself when you fear that something bad is going to happen. Our bodies made chemicals such as adrenalin to give us strength during a short-time emergency. However, when people respond to long-time, modern day problems (traffic, unhappy job, bills etc) with this same chemical response as a lion attack, adrenalin builds up in our bodies and isn’t released through physical action (running away or fighting). This can lead to increased stress, high blood pressure, anger, anxiety and panic. Fortunately, we can help you can learn techniques to help you respond to stress in healthy ways.

Anxiety, stress, and worry can run havoc on the mind and body. It is common for people to suffer from bouts of depression when suffering from anxiety for an extended amount of time. The mind and body can only take anxiety or stress for so long before depression hits. I provide clients with techniques and tools to identify and calm their response to the stress pattern.

Anxiety and stress are at the heart of nearly all emotional difficulties in one form or another. Learning new ways of coping with these realities of life can lead to lifelong growth and renewed sense of purpose. There is a powerful saying: "Pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional". My approach is different, in that I don't seek to eliminate what is normal and typical for all of us (stress, anxiety, fear, pain), but rather change how we interact with these experiences. There are powerful tools that successful, happy people have known for generations and you can learn these effective strategies too.

We all experience some degree of stress in our lives. Anxiety is not necessary a bad thing. However, for some it can be debilitating. Many times the anxiety is due to a certain situation or the perception of a situation. Some people are more predisposed to anxiety than others due to their nature. Before the underlying problem is addressed a client will learn how to control their symptoms so the anxiety is not so overwhelming. This will be done thru breathing, muscle relaxation techniques and/or visualization to name a few tools. Controling anxiety, which at times can lead to panic attacks, is not always easy. However, the return is a life of physical and emotional health for your future.

When you are stressed and feeling anxious, it is often hard to stop and even take a moment for yourself to breathe. I work with people from all walks of life who feel as though their life is plagued with worry and guilt. Finding the source of these feelings is important, and is often hard to do on your own when you literally cannot think clearly or objectively about your situation. I help people to openly face their perceived challenges, and develop or uncover their healthy coping skills.

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.

If left to its own devices, the mind can perceive and operate in such a way as to instill much anxiety and stress in a person. To the person, it may appear a "natural" response to whatever they're going through. Things can even get overwhelming. And yet they may notice that others going through similar, or even worse, situations don't respond that way. This is a hint that they, too, can do better. To confidentially air their concerns with a professional skilled in listening and responding can be very helpful. To acquire and practice new knowledge in emotional managing can be empowering. Mindfulness is also often an asset in leaving behind anxiety and stress.

Anxiety, stress, panic, phobias, and obsessions are personal challenges that respond well to cognitive behavior therapy, stress inoculation training, and Accelerated Resolution Therapy. Regardless of the strategy, the focus is to desensitize the issue causing the disturbance. Relaxation training is part of that process. Accelerated Resolution Therapy can reduce corresponding physiological symptoms and desensitize clients to the provoking stimuli. Thereafter, it is often helpful to build skills to help manage future stressful situations.
