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.

Anxiety and ineffective stress management are two of the more common reasons that individuals seek therapy. My practice is very much focused on encouraging self-care, teaching various stress reduction tools, and incorporating techniques that are known to be effective (e.g., guided imagery, progressive muscle relaxation, mindfulness, and hypnotherapy).

Anxiety affects your whole being. There are bodily reactions such as rapid heartbeat which are known as physiological reactivity. Behaviorally, it can sabotage your ability to act, express yourself, or deal with everyday situations. Psychologically we often have interpretations or "self-talk" that can generate apprehension and worry. All three of these must be addressed to help you overcome your anxiety by reducing the physiological activity, eliminating avoidance behavior, and correcting your distorted thinking. Relaxation training, focusing on problem solutions, and strategizing how to cope with fearful images are also included as part of a treatment plan.

Anxiety is fear. We are prone to feel fear as a survival instinct. It's a good idea to feel fear when confronted with a wolf in the woods. It helps to get our feet moving. But feeling like there is a wolf bearing down on us when there is no wolf can lead to some problems. The least of these problems is discomfort, but anxiety can be crippling, making it agonizing to leave the house. Anxiety leads to many physical problems, but in general leaves a person feeling miserable. It doesn't have to be this way. There are many different ways to approach helping a person diminish their symptoms of anxiety and have a more expansive, fear-free life. I happen to know some of these ways.

Professional Counselor

Anxiety is a physiological response to a real or perceived threat. Counseling can help with anxiety by seeking to understand and eliminate that threat and by providing useful coping strategies when anxiety strikes. Benefits include a less frequent and intense experience of anxiety symptoms and the development of skills for handling them when they do occur. One important benefit of working with a counselor on your anxiety is being able to talk about it without feeling judged. I help clients with anxiety find answers to their own questions without judgment.

Stress and anxiety are like a snowball that gets bigger and more daunting with each revolution and addition of new snow. Stress and anxiety are rooted in our core beliefs and manifest in irrational thinking patterns. I can help by teaching symptom coping skills, challenging and changing core beliefs and identifying and resolving irrational thinking patterns.

Licensed Professional Counselor

The pressures of this world go up and down in our daily life. Sometimes they fell overwhelming. We feel inadequate. Or we are afraid something bad is going to happen to us. These feelings can overtake our lives. We worry, fret, or just get down and unmotivated. We can't stop feeling the way we feel. I get it. I don't try and make you feel what you are not feeling, but recognize feelings reflect an unhealthy belief about yourself, other people, or the world. I help you find those beliefs, examine their origin, heal those places and see yourself, people and life in a healthier way. Then you feel happier, and motivated.

Anxiety and Stress are very common today. We live in a high stimulation environment. I am experienced working with issues such as work-related stress, personal stress and trauma. Understanding how to reduce your stress begins with taking the time to explore. I can help. Anxiety has to do with how we process external stimulation and/or our concerns for our future needs and/or biochemical imbalances that we may have. First, we determine where your anxiety is coming from and go from there. I approach both the short term and long term needs you may require. Therapy sessions can be a first step to relieve your anxiety and stress and give you the relief you seek!

Anxiety is a part if most people's lives however sometimes that anxiety can be debilitating. Looking at dysfunctional thought patterns and changing them frees many from living in a state of fear. Our thought can keep us in a loop like a merry go round that we can't escape. I am able to help clients break these loop patterns and create new functional patterns that free them It is time to quit living a life based on lies from the past.

Anxiety is fear taken to the extreme. It shuts people down or causes them to try to control. It may make us fret and rob us of joy (we get stressed out). Our answer to it is often self-sufficiency (defensive strategies) which does not work. I use biblio therapy (reading materials), cognitive therapy, and physiological relaxation strategies, along with Truth to know who we are and to increase one's resilience to be vulnerable in a healthy way. Better boundary setting may be essential, etc.
