Anxiety can be hard to deal with it. Anxiety can cause worries, fears, panic attacks, obsessive thoughts, lack of sleep and concentration. In counseling, you learn about negative thoughts and behaviors can contribute and trigger anxiety. Counseling helps to uncover the underlying causes. Together we find ways to relax, look at situations in a different ways, and to cope.

Most of my clients enter into therapy because of stress & anxiety; it is a byproduct of whatever else you're feeling and also of our fast-paced, screen-based society. I have had success helping clients reduce these symptoms with music-based relaxation techniques, breathing, mindfulness, imagery, walking meditation, music meditation, mandala-making, and other ways to self-calm. Then it's working with your fears, how you think about them and perhaps how you respond to the world around you. Anxiety is something you can do something about with guidance, patient practice and understanding it doesn't have to define the way you live.

Most people think of anxiety as a terrible enemy. It doesn’t have to be. Anxiety is a normal part of life, and it’s a vital part of your survival. You actually need some anxiety to perform efficiently. The problem isn't anxiety. The problem is when anxiety gets out of control ... That's when you have an anxiety disorder. Diagnosis of an anxiety disorder means you have problems dealing with stress and pressure. You may be ashamed of it, but you really shouldn’t be: as many as 15% of the population suffers from anxiety. Along with depression, anxiety disorders are the most common and widespread psychological conditions. I can help with this condition.

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.

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.

There are three things you need to learn about stress, worry and anxiety. First, you need to learn to ignore unhelpful thoughts. Second, you need to learn to accept uncomfortable feelings. Neither of these is easy. Meditation will help and I can teach you to do that; meditation is easy, despite what you may have heard and the research says it is the best way known to minimize the effects of anxiety and worry. The third thing you need to learn is what role worry and anxiety play in your life. You may not be able to be worry free, but you can learn to worry a lot less.

Anxiety feels terrible - locking away our natural gifts - interfering with our ability to live a joyful life. There are many interventions which can help us gain control over anxiety. Visualization and imagery, relaxation techniques, biofeedback, thought changing, exercise, energy therapies, music and research-based writing techniques - even good nutrition - are all effective methods for reducing anxiety. You can learn more about some of these interventions by logging on to the website www.mypainmanagement.net. The website contains interactive modules for managing a variety of emotions, including anxiety. I was the content author for these modules and use all of these methods in my practice.

Ralph Whetstine, Psy.D., ACHT

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Similar in approach to the treatment of depression, I take a holistic approach to the treatment of anxiety and stress disorders. I seek to restore function and break the momentum cause by ineffective habits that were created as a knee-jerk way of responding to anxiety symptoms. The instinct to try to control our emotional experience is strong and understandable, but often creates difficulties that make anxiety symptoms more entrenched and difficult to treat. Learning techniques of relaxation and mindfulness are instrumental in the effective treatment of anxiety symptoms and regaining the kind of balance lost in the unrestrained experience of anxiety symptoms.

I help my clients identify where their anxiety and stress is stemming from. Not what triggers it, but what ideas about themselves and the world causes them to respond to triggers with anxiety and stress. After identifying the causes of these uncomfortable feelings, we can find ways to be present and aware of when this comes up and learn to accept and manage it in the moment.

Consistent worry, fear and a feeling of being unsafe or unsettled can have a serious impact on relationships, work and self-esteem. Stress slowly diminishes are ability to live a full and engaged life and is often difficult to control on one's own when it has spiraled to unmanageable levels. My work with mindfulness and meditation, on a personal and professional level, has led me to believe that it is very effective for teaching us how to successfully walk through a world that is becoming increasingly hectic and often overwhelming. We will work together to recognize what patterns in the mind/body can be eliminated to leave room for joy and ease to enter into daily life.
