Anxiety: it is that feeling that keeps you up at night. It is what causes that pit in your stomach when you keep replaying that moment from your day, over and over in your head, when you are trying to sleep. It can paralyze you from accomplishing the goals that you want and deserve. You do not have to live like that anymore. Clint works on treating anxiety with multiple techniques to break that cycle of negative thinking and to help you learn let go of worry. Clint also utilizes meditation and mindfulness techniques that can help with sleep and reduce daily anxiety

Does your child seem more anxious or stressed than normal? I work with youth aged 3-25 who are experiencing some level of anxiety, or experiencing some level of stress. This may include homework stress, behavioral issues, self-harm, sexting, tantrums and arguing/talking back. I can support parents in different techniques, because even good parents need extra support at times. Kids don't come with owner's manuals, and we tend to default to our own family's dynamics as parents. Simple changes can have a significant effect on your child's behaviors. I also help youth identify their feelings and make better choices. Don't hesitate to call for a free phone consultation!

Anxiety takes on a variety of different forms; therefore, Karen’s initial approach is to find out the underlying cause(s) of the anxiety. Anxiety disorders differ considerably, and as a result, therapy is tailored to the specific symptoms. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Exposure Therapy (ET) have been shown to be effective in treating individuals suffering from the various forms of anxiety, and these are Karen’s preferred methods of treatment. Worries and fears do not need to be constants in an individual’s life, so Karen and the client will work together to find ways of looking at situations differently, develop coping skills, and consider new ways of problem solving.

Anxiety, fueled by stress hormones, is one of the most difficult emotions to endure. Certainly, it affects the whole body. Learning how to calm the body take practice and encouragement. It means changing thinking patterns, physiological states, and challenging yourself to face situations that you would actually prefer to avoid if you could. I aim to be a coach and a support through this process.

I work with anxiety and stress using a cognitive behavioral approach. The goal is to help the client learn that they can manage their anxiety and stress. This is done through gaining insight into their perception and thinking around the circumstances causing them stress. We also work to help them reduce the anxiety through physical activity including exercise and relaxation. Combining the thought process with the physical component work well in reducing anxiety and stress.

First, take a deep breath; hold it for 4 seconds; now let it out and say "Ahhhh". Anxiety and stress are a part of life and there is no way around it. But the symptoms can be managed well. Which type do you have? The six major types have their own distinct set of symptoms: generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder (anxiety attacks), phobia, post-traumatic stress disorder, and social anxiety disorder. Treatment for each type varies. I use a variety of methods and techniques such as hypnosis, meditation, cognitive behavioral therapy, self- esteem / self -care & psycho-education. Go ahead, take another deep breath and see yourself feeling better.

Anxiety and stress are correlated with depression and frequently they co-occur. I can help people relax and lower their anxiety with EMDR and supportive counseling. I can also refer them for medications. Many times anxiety is a symptom of deeper unresolved issues which can be addressed psychotherapeuticly.Again EMDR can be used to help create a "safe place" to go too. It can also be teated with cognitive behavioral psychology as sometimes "distorted thinking" is involved.

Anxiety Counselor

Allison Schechter, PsyD

Clinical Psychologist

Most people experience normal worry and anxiety from time to time; however, when this anxiety begins to disturb a person's overall functioning, it may be time to seek outside help. Anxiety is a very common disorder and one that can be effectively treated with therapy. People are often able to identify the emotions evoked with anxiety (such as fear or panic), but they are less often able to identify the thoughts involved that lead to this emotion. I work with clients to increase their coping strategies and pay better attention to and identify their thoughts that lead to uncomfortable emotions, and then work to stop or change these negative thoughts to healthier and more productive thoughts.

Everyone experiences some stress and anxiety on a regular basis. These are problematic if incapacitating, excessive, severe, and associated with common situations. Panic attacks, overwhelming worry, and fear are signs that stress or anxiety is at an unhealthy level. If these impact you intensely most days, it is important to seek expert support immediately. Your anxiety might involve certain situations such as socializing or being separated from someone or something important. Anxiety can also be generalized and triggered by almost any issue or situation. If you have a child/teen experiencing high anxiety, seek help quickly to prevent potentially life-long symptoms.
