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!

Anxiety manifests itself in many ways: General anxiety, obsessive-type anxiety, social anxiety and performance anxiety. Sometimes anxiety is coupled with Depression and irritability and other times it manifests itself physically in tics, twitches, and tremors, or in physical ailments like hypertension, chronic pain, or ulcers. Sometimes anxiety is debilitating, as in panic attacks or specific phobias. Tyler works with many different forms of anxiety.

Stripped to the core, anxiety is basically fear of the unknown. Anxiety is quite common and most individuals experience anxiety from time to time. However, when anxiety interferes with the quality of your life it can be beneficial to speak with a counselor about your specific set of circumstances. My approach to treating anxiety is highly dependent upon the needs and specifics symptoms of the individual. However, almost always does it include a look at the individual's core beliefs about his or herself, others and the world in general. Investigation into these areas can be helpful in understanding the source of the anxiety which is a determinant in choosing the appropriate treatment.

Most stress is helpful as it motivates us to take care of our daily business. Anxiety however is intense worry or fear about what may or may not happen in the future. This is felt in moods- nervousness, irritation, or panic; thoughts- overestimating danger and underestimating ability to deal with the danger and physical reactions- sweaty palms, tense muscles, racing heart, dizziness, tunnel vision or trouble breathing. Treatment is 80% effective. Cognitive behavior therapy and insight oriented therapy along with medications, if needed, are really helpful. Understanding the anxiety and knowing what to do when the symptoms are present goes a long way to restoring a sense of well being
