I work with individuals who have experienced some kind of stressful life event. I help them work through the stressor and in the process they learn better ways to manage their stress and anxiety. They will then be able to resolve the life stressor which allows them to turn the potential defeat into a personal victory. As a result my clients often end up with increased self confidence as a result of dealing with their stressful life event.

Symptoms of anxiety, which range from mild to debilitating, include worry, panic, perfectionism, obsessions, compulsions, or physical complaints. People can "self-medicate," and act in ways that may bring embarrassment or confusion. One can become sexually compulsive, use drugs or alcohol, eat emotionally, or shop too much. Therapy will help you to: identify ways to replace irrational thinking with more realistic ones; reduce stress, reconnect to the body; avoid people or situations less; and develop healthier coping strategies. I combine cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and trauma in ways designed to reduce anxiety, and to facilitate healing, growth & wellbeing.

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.

Occasional anxiety and stress is a normal part of life. You might feel anxious or “stressed out” when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or making an important decision. But anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety or stress does not go away and can get worse over time. The feelings can interfere with daily activities such as job performance, school work, and relationships. There are several different types of anxiety disorders. Examples include generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and social anxiety disorder. Therapy can greatly benefit the person seeking treatment from 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.

In anxiety and stress treatment, the first goal is to reduce your discomfort. Anxiety and Stress cause real physiological symptoms; a day of anxiety can result in feeling emotionally and physically exhausted. By addressing the events that trigger you, negative thoughts and reactive behaviors that are intertwined anxiety and stress, you can expect a quick reduction of symptoms while making pathways to new positive behaviors and reactions. Longer term, you'll learn to be aware of your triggers and stop anxiety before it starts; you'll work to achieve inner peace and reduce your stress with new self-care actions.

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.

Do feelings of worry, anxiety, and stress get in the way of you living the life you envision? I focus on helping people understand the role of anxiety in their life, and work with them to develop the skills to change their relationship to challenging thoughts and feelings. As difficult as it can be to experience anxiety, there is freedom in being able to take action on what matters most even when anxiety shows up. How would your life change if you were able to be the person you want to be without anxiety holding you back?

I am trained in evidence-based CBT, ACT, DBT, Mindfulness, and other effective therapies for anxiety and stress management. However, I believe that therapy goes far deeper than mere symptom management. I treat clients as a whole person. Effective therapy has its roots in a strong therapeutic relationship. Through my clinical experience, I have learned that tangible treatment techniques are only effective in the long-term when combined with a therapist steeped in passion and care for a client. This type of therapeutic relationship is evident in empathy, hope, respect, and an openness for connecting on deeper levels with clients. I am ready to go with you on this journey, whatever your pace.

Anxiety can feel so isolating. We feel it in our body as well as in our racing thoughts and feelings of fear and panic. It’s hard to describe and sometimes even hard to pinpoint its cause. In therapy you will experience a safe, non-judgmental space to learn more about the causes of your anxiety, gain skills to manage it and ultimately find relief from the physical and emotional symptoms of anxiety.
