Anxiety and stress are an inevitable part of everyday life. When they are ongoing or excessive, we can become impaired in our ability to be our best. It can affect our health, our confidence and relationships sometimes even paralyzing us so we are unable to perform. As life expectations rise, demands increase, and we become spread so thin, we often lose our balance and perspective. Learning how to define what is important to us, set appropriate boundaries and execute consistently and confidently are necessary skills to develop to maintain a healthy, happier life.

Anxiety provoking stimulus is everywhere today. Bills are due, kids need to be picked up, social media stirs us up. The greatest source of anxiety is our own minds. Through therapy clients learn to first monitor their anxiety and then to bring it down to a manageable level. Using techniques from narrative and mindfulness clients can learn to cope.

Stress affects all of us. There is good stress ("eustress"), and bad stress ("distress"). Stress cannot be avoided in all areas of our lives, so we have to learn healthy ways of managing it. Psychotherapy can help people to learn positive, healthy coping skills for managing stress. Anxiety is a response to a perceived threat, whether that threat be a physical threat, an emotional threat, or even something like a deadline at work. Sometimes we know the source of anxiety, and sometimes we need someone to help us locate the source. Either way, there are many effective therapies to help people to cope with or eliminate anxiety.
