Our brains are designed to fight or flight in scary life threatening situations. However, sometimes what our brains think is scary is actually irrational and we end up with avoidant behaviors, low self esteem, and poor boundaries because it's scary to confront situations head on. My psychotherapy sessions begin with identifying triggers to the anxiety, current negative coping skills that you utilize to manage the symptoms, and identifying the thoughts and feelings attributed to the anxiety so we can work together to change thought processes and create positive skills to sustainably manage anxiety.

Feeling anxious and under stress at times is normal. Anxious feelings are often brought about by daily stress such as driving in heavy traffic or important meetings. While this mild anxiety helps us stay alert and focused in challenging circumstances, anxiety disorders cause severe distress over a period of time and disrupt the lives of individuals. The intensity of the anxiety often makes it difficult to function normally on a daily basis. Anxiety disorders often surface in adolescence or early adulthood though they may begin at any time in ones life. Types of anxiety disorders: - Generalized Anxiety Disorder is a constant feeling that something bad is about to happen. There may be no readily identifiable reason for the anxiety but the fear is real...(view profile to read more)

Clients seeking therapy for anxiety and stress can benefit from cognitive treatment which aims at changing thinking patterns to ease symptoms and promote positive insight. With cognitive therapy, you will learn to model healthier behaviors and ways of thinking to help change the perception of issues/situations that cause anxiety and stress. The goal of this therapy is for you to gain the ability to differentiate negative or overwhelming thoughts from healthy thoughts to prevent future self-depreciating feelings. Therapy can also help you to assess your need for any anti-anxiety medication to assist with symptom reduction.

Like some caffeine, some anxiety can motivate people to meet deadlines or complete tasks. Also, as stress seems to be an integral part of our lives, people often say some stress is vital to keep us stimulated or successful. But what if the anxiety and stress you feel seems to be hurting not helping you? Maybe you can't fall asleep or you bite your nails? Perhaps you often interrupt others or get overwhelmed when starting a project? Certainly, medication is a possibility. However, talking with a psychologist is a necessity.

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.

Anxiety is an obstacle that keeps people from moving towards their goals and dreams. Anxiety hinders relationships, career opportunities, dreams, and keeps people from being successful. I believe in order to get through anxieties one must change their "yes but" language to "yes and" so that opportunities begin to present themselves. The biggest regrets in life are generally now what we have done, but what we didn't do. I believe it is never too late to do the next right thing. Using evidence based modalities of CBT, ACT, and DBT interventions, I can assist you in moving past the anxiety and back to the life you desire.

Anxiety takes on a variety of different forms; therefore, Karen’s initial approach is to find out the underlying cause(s) of the anxiety. Anxiety disorders differ considerably, and as a result, therapy is tailored to the specific symptoms. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Exposure Therapy (ET) have been shown to be effective in treating individuals suffering from the various forms of anxiety, and these are Karen’s preferred methods of treatment. Worries and fears do not need to be constants in an individual’s life, so Karen and the client will work together to find ways of looking at situations differently, develop coping skills, and consider new ways of problem solving.
