Stress and anxiety are like a snowball that gets bigger and more daunting with each revolution and addition of new snow.

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.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

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 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. In preschoolers, separation from parents can cause anxiety. As kids get older, academic and social pr....

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.
