Anxiety and stress can be crippling. Many times the cause of the anxiety and stress can be rooted in the fast paced lives that we live. Other times there can be multiple issues causing the anxiety. My approach to anxiety and stress is to uncover and address the issues contributing to the problem and at the same time help manage the symptoms that are resulting from the anxiety.

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.

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 Counselor

Kalpana Murthy, MBA, MS, LPC, NCC, DCC

Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified EMDR Therapist, Career Coach, Brain Health Coach

Within driving distance of Oakwood

As a therapist, I know that positive thinking alone and relaxation breathing alone will not resolve your anxiety. I have helped clients with generalized anxiety, social anxiety, presentation anxiety, interview anxiety, and anxiety related to accidents or traumatic events. "Kalpana helped me tremendously to get through a difficult time and helped me see how all the anxiety I have experienced most of my life was linked to early unresolved childhood trauma. My anxiety is still way down and not all-consuming the way it used to be. The therapy I did with Kalpana has helped me more than any other therapy I've done in my whole life. I finally feel "unstuck" and able to move forward".

Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Sex Therapist

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.

The hectic pace in which we live today combined with the influx of messages around what makes a person "successful" has resulted in a perfect storm of increased stress, worry, and anxiety. Identifying areas of our lives where we can assume control versus staying stuck in places where it feels life may be controlling us is a great first step to alleviate some of the dread anxiety often can bring about.
