Have you ever tried to sleep and its like the switch turns on and your brain starts racing 1,000 miles an hour? Images, sounds, past and future conversations, to-do lists...etc. Anxiety is a monster. I like to train my clients to look anxiety in the face and say "I'm ok, I can be calm." Soothing techniques and awareness are several of the best tools against anxiety. Anxiety is not who you are as a person, it is often a symptom of a family system, a lifestyle, or a trauma, or another mystery yet to be found.

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!

Heightened stress and anxiety can be difficult to both understand and manage, particularly in today's world of busy schedules and high demands.
