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.

No matter how long you have lived with anxiety or happiness-compromising stress, there are tried and true ways AND surprising, creative ways to help you shrink the effects on you and your life. Your birthright is aliveness!! Is that always positive, uplifting experiences? You know the answer to that - OF COURSE NOT! But you can achieve a balance, a flow in your life, dominated by pleasant, enjoyable experiences - and you'll learn to flow through the uncomfortable, challenging ones. When you're ready, I will help you 1) discover what you need to understand, and 2) identify and help you learn the tools to shift anxiety and stress to accomplish the life you want. Are you willing?!

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.
