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.

My approach to anxiety is holistic. Anxiety can have many sources. I have found it helpful to examine both historical issues as well as various aspects of the client’s current life. These include family of origin issues, trauma related issues, current relationships, employment issues, beliefs about yourself and the world, as well as environmental , nutritional and spiritual factors. I use a variety of techniques including conventional talk therapy based upon multiple theoretical orientations, Cognitive Therapy, Emotional Freedom Technique (Energy Psychology), as well as other mind-body techniques. Clients who have worked with me on their anxiety, have reported that they not only feel le

Anxiety and Stress usually have both physical and mental symptoms. Physical symptoms like sweating, nausea, difficulty breathing, tense muscles, and rapid heart rate. And mental symptoms like racing thoughts, easily getting distracted, or not being able to turn your mind off. I can help you become aware of your reaction to anxiety and stress, both physically and mentally, and develop coping strategies to manage these symptoms so you can feel relief. I can teach you relaxation strategies and mindful exercises. I can help you examine your thinking patterns in an effort to reframe and reprogram them, as a lot of anxiety is caused by the way we think about things.

For good reason, stress has been referred to as "the silent killer," as it can lead to heart problems and high blood pressure: Definitely something worth taking care of! Therapy is the perfect setting for those interested in reducing their stress and gaining control over the lives and their health. Many clients have commented to me that if only they knew how enjoyable therapy is, they would have come years ago. Those who have experienced good therapy know that it can be a safe haven from a stressful and anxiety provoking world.

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.

Unfortunately we all can relate to feeling overwhelmed and “stressed out.” We help clients focus on the physical and emotional effects of stress, the unhealthy ways we normally try to “cope,” and learn positive techniques for coping in healthy ways. There are a number of effective strategies that help with managing and reducing stress. Anxiety can be result of prolonged or intense stress. It can also be more biochemical in nature. We take a varied approach to dealing with anxiety so that our clients experience relief from what can be debilitating symptoms. Panic and anxiety are our body's way of saying something is wrong. Let us help figure how what to change so that you can live freely.
