Any change – good or bad – can be exhausting. I will help you identify the source of your triggers and find ways to adjust so that life doesn't feel so overwhelming. The racing thoughts you have and anxiety you feel does have to control your life. We’ll identify which ways you are overestimating stress and underestimating your ability to cope. You will be less stressed and more present after we finish our work together.

Anxiety and stress are a very normal part of life but sometimes life's changes can cause anxiety to become bigger than you can handle. The good news is anxiety is very treatable! I utilize a series of exercises and activities that help my clients understand the anxiety and then control the anxiety. It takes a combination of coping skills to find the peacefulness of life without anxiety, but whether you are a child or adult it is possible to live without it!

While most treatment approaches for anxiety and stress are effective on the surface, they don’t treat the real problem. Mantras, deep breathing, and rational dialogues about your fear being irrational rarely work---for most people don’t believe it or you! Imagine if you can trick the brain into changing without you telling your conscious mind that you are changing it? Problem with anxiety and stress is that the brain in this state knows you want to change it and it resists.

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.
