Anxiety or extreme stress is like a never-ending voice in your head telling you to worry. The racing thoughts can make it feel impossible to fall asleep at night. The anxious feelings can make work difficult. The constant worry and stress can take a real toll on your relationships. Anxiety can have physical sensations too, like the feeling that your heart is racing, or that you cannot catch your breath. Through therapy however you can learn how to effectively manage stress and anxiety. You can take control of the racing thoughts and learn to calm your emotions when necessary. We will identify triggers and develop coping skills to help you reduce the intensity of your stress and anxiety.

Anxiety and Stress can cause countless other issues. The approach I use with my clients is a behavioral one. Often we don't understand or make the connection that our thoughts can drive our feelings of an event and as a result our actions or responses. Recognizing how our mind and bodies are feeling based on our perceptions often lead to the recognition that we do have the power to make the changes necessary for a sense of well-being.

CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) is considered best practice to address anxiety disorders in general and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder in particular. I customize CBT, including Exposure Response Prevention (EXRP) strategies to each individual by identifying obsessive themes and compulsive rituals, generating a hierarchy with SUDS (subjective units of distress scales), and guiding individuals through a systematic process of working through their hierarchy to reduce or eliminate their obsessions and compulsions. A similar approach can be applied to reduce or eliminate panic episodes, and identify triggers and improve coping strategies for generalized anxiety and stress responses.

Stress is the result of the adjustment we need to make to changes in our lives. The accumulation of stress is what often brings people to therapy. Most individuals have sufficient coping strategies for day-to-day living; but, often, life happens and our ability to cope is not enough. We need new strategies. A few short sessions often are sufficient to feel like you are back in control of your life.
