Anxiety and stress can keep you locked up from living your life fully. Often anxiety can be biochemical in nature or can result from ongoing stress, lack of balance or unresolved issues. Christians can struggle with these issues and often feel quite guilty in knowing that they shouldn't worry or have fear. In therapy we will carefully assess these issues in a loving, grace based manner so that you can be free from debilitating anxiety and stress.

Chronic stress and anxiety are so prevalent in our society today. Especially with all of our gadgets and the fast pace of everything. It's difficult, and sometimes even near impossible to slow down. Anxiety can contribute to physical illness, sleep deprivation, and cause you to generally feel miserable. By giving my clients multiple therapeutic techniques, I've helped most of my clients successfully eliminate the need for their anti-anxiety medications. After working with me, my clients have experienced a significant reduction in chronic worrying, physical symptoms (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, insomnia, etc.), and improved the overall quality of their lives.

To help people reduce & manage their stress I utilize clinically proven psychological concepts of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) & Mindfulness. CBT helps to address the way we process information because what we think & how we process that information leads to how we will feel which leads to how we will or will not behave. DBT concepts help us to regulate our emotions in a healthier way & Mindfulness is a very particular way of living in the present moment of life, leaning to notice things vs judge & respond vs react.

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.

Everyone feels anxiety at some point in their lives but when it starts to interfere with your life, counseling can help. Although anxiety can feel debilitating, it is treatable. People with anxiety don’t always share the same symptoms, they vary from person to person. Therapy will help you to reclaim your life and function in a chronically stressful world.

At times, we all think negatively; however, we are empowered because we can change the way we think in order to feel less anxiety and stress. In order to pursue optimal psychological health, one way to start is to begin to monitor our thinking regularly. The next step is to examine or question our thoughts and ask ourselves things like: Are our thoughts in proportion to what has happened? Is there any evidence that our beliefs are true? Cognitive behavioral therapy is an effective treatment approach for anxiety and stress especially if part of a comprehensive treatment plan.

Do you long for relationships with others but are afraid to take risks because of how you might be perceived? Do you avoid people, places or experiences? Is your life feeling more constrained and difficult to enjoy things you once experienced. If so you may be dealing with something commonly known as an Anxiety Disorder. Everyone experiences anxiety from time to time. It is a normal feeling that we are born with to keep us safe from danger. The problem is when anxiety levels b/c elevated it can be very debilitating and keep people from a full life. Approximately 25% of the population experiences elevated levels of anxiety and there is help. Contact us to set up a consultation.

My approach to working with people suffering from high levels of anxiety and stress is to use Mindfulness, Meditation and Relaxation techniques. I also utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, because so many people suffer from anxiety and stress because of "the story they tell themselves" and their personal belief system and worldview that is causing much of the distress. I will help you to relax emotionally and physically, and will also address one's thinking to get it in alignment with truth, rather than the distorted kind of thinking that happens when one is extremely stressed or depressed.

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 work with many patients living with daily anxiety and stress. Anxiety and stress can rob a person of their quality of life and can ultimately negatively effect their physical health. Accordingly, I look at it as almost a personal safety issue. Quickly developing strategies to manage anxiety and stress is essential for my patients. Honestly, sometimes a person can not do it without medication, at least in the short term. Accordingly, I refer patients to one of several caring psychiatrists who can treat them as a supplement to talk therapy.
