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.

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 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.

Anxiety and stress are common parts of modern life. Jobs, school, families, and partners can all combine to leave us feeling overwhelmed and as if we can't get everything done. And if you have a perfectionist tendency, then you may feel extra anxiety that no matter what you do or how hard you work, you will never be good enough. The keys to reducing anxiety and stress are self-acceptance, learning to let things go, and learning to relax and stay calm. You might not be able to "do it all", but you can learn to stop worrying so much, do what you can, and enjoy life!

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.
