Anxiety and stress are some of the most common problems people experience in their daily lives. When working with clients, I help them to better understand the source of the anxiety and stress and teach them the necessary skills to help manage these feelings. Anxiety and stress are usually biological responses that act to protect us from perceived danger; it is important to understand why we experience this to then be able to calm the central nervous system to help alleviate stress and anxiety.

Worry and anxiety are very common in modern life. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, a quarter of the American population may experience symptoms of anxiety or depression during a typical year.

Psychoanalytic treatment creates a space where you can speak freely to anxiety, fear, trauma, and stress. It is often the case that this highly specific way of speaking alleviates symptoms associated with anxiety, fear, trauma and stress. If the treatment is of sufficient length, it also allows the patient to access the structures, patterns and repetitions underlying their anxiety, fear, trauma or stress. It is often quite difficult to change these patterns and repetitions as they are what we know, what we are familiar with. The work with the psychoanalytically oriented therapist supports changes in these patterns and supports you as you make your way into new territory.

Anxiety Counselor

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

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

Within driving distance of Smyrna

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".

Adults tend to view the world of children as happy and carefree. After all, kids don't have jobs to keep or bills to pay, so what could they possibly have to worry about? Plenty! Even very young children have worries and feel stress to some degree. Stress is a function of the demands placed on us and our ability to meet them. These demands often come from outside sources, such as family, jobs, friends, or school. But it also can come from within, often related to what we think we should be doing versus what we're actually able to do. So stress can affect anyone who feels overwhelmed — even kids.
