Most stress is helpful as it motivates us to take care of our daily business. Anxiety however is intense worry or fear about what may or may not happen in the future. This is felt in moods- nervousness, irritation, or panic; thoughts- overestimating danger and underestimating ability to deal with the danger and physical reactions- sweaty palms, tense muscles, racing heart, dizziness, tunnel vision or trouble breathing. Treatment is 80% effective. Cognitive behavior therapy and insight oriented therapy along with medications, if needed, are really helpful. Understanding the anxiety and knowing what to do when the symptoms are present goes a long way to restoring a sense of well being

I care about helping clients understand what struggles are taking place in their lives and hearts that lead to the increased anxiety that can make you feel out of control. Helping provide you with the necessary tools to learn how to cope with anxiety will open up new paths toward freedom and healing.

Some aspects of stress are physiological. We are "hard-wired" to react to situations that may harm us with increased blood pressure, heart rate, etc. If our stressful situations are brief, we can quickly resume our normal functioning and be no worse for the wear. But when stress is chronic, or when we anticipate stressful things and become anxious, it takes a toll on our emotional and physical health. Dealing with chronic stress and anxiety means determining what you can and cannot change, and then how you will deal with each. I can teach you self-soothing techniques and how to change the way you think about what you cannot change, and we can examine together what CAN change!
