Licensed Professional Counselor

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.

Chronic stress and anxiety are so prevalent in our society today. Especially with all of our gadgets and the fast pace of everything. It's difficult, and sometimes even near impossible to slow down. Anxiety can contribute to physical illness, sleep deprivation, and cause you to generally feel miserable. By giving my clients multiple therapeutic techniques, I've helped most of my clients successfully eliminate the need for their anti-anxiety medications. After working with me, my clients have experienced a significant reduction in chronic worrying, physical symptoms (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, insomnia, etc.), and improved the overall quality of their lives.

The experience of chronic anxiety and stress can be depleting on an individual. My goal is to assist clients in challenging the causes and learning ways in which to reduce their stress and anxiety. I examine the long term effects on their physical well being as well as mental and develop plans to achieve a higher level of overall wellness. I often incorporate mindfulness strategies and mediation to center clients and become more in tune with the present. This is particularly helpful in working with my clients who are mothers or who are experiencing fertility issues or miscarriage.

Anxiety is miserable but it's also one of the easier things to treat in therapy. Whether you are stressed out and worried about "everything" or if your anxiety has a compulsive side to it I can help. I enjoy working with anxious people because there is a lot of energy that can get channeled towards fast improvement. I initially approach anxiety work from a cognitive side as to how the thought processes generate the anxiety. Understanding the emotions underneath the anxiety is an important part of the process as well. I work with generalized anxiety (worriers), OCD, social anxiety, and specific anxieties. Believe it or not - anxiety work can actually be fun and there's often a lot of laughs.

Anxiety can be hard to deal with it. Anxiety can cause worries, fears, panic attacks, obsessive thoughts, lack of sleep and concentration. In counseling, you learn about negative thoughts and behaviors can contribute and trigger anxiety. Counseling helps to uncover the underlying causes. Together we find ways to relax, look at situations in a different ways, and to cope.

I work with many children, teenagers, and young adults who manage varying levels of anxiety. In the pediatric population anxiety comes out in a variety of ways including social anxiety, test anxiety, school refusal, panic attacks, and constant worries. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an evidenced based intervention that I adapt for pediatric clients to help them overcome anxiety. If your child lives in a constant state of fear that something terrible will happen, don't delay another day, call to set up an appointment and start your child on the road to reducing anxiety.

Anxiety and stress are correlated with depression and frequently they co-occur. I can help people relax and lower their anxiety with EMDR and supportive counseling. I can also refer them for medications. Many times anxiety is a symptom of deeper unresolved issues which can be addressed psychotherapeuticly.Again EMDR can be used to help create a "safe place" to go too. It can also be teated with cognitive behavioral psychology as sometimes "distorted thinking" is involved.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

I have worked with many clients experiencing anxiety and stress in relationships with family, friends and colleagues or as a result of addiction and relapse, or health issues. Mindfulness practices are incorporated directly into my therapy sessions from the very beginning to allow my clients to begin to calm their overactive stress response systems and feel a reduction in their anxiety immediately. Over the long term, clients see the benefits of taking a moment to pause and reflect that they have a choice in how they respond in the moment to challenging interactions.

Anxiety Counselor

Richard Cohen, Ph.D

Clinical Psychologist

Treating anxiety and stress is a major part of what I do as a Clinical Psychologist. I have a wide range of techniques that I can draw upon, some of which can be utilized for online or telephone therapy, while others can require office visits. When using the telephone I find it very useful to not only analyze and find solutions to your problems, but to also use workbooks, online programs, and the many different CD's that are available. This will certainly increase your coping skills. Medication is always a possibility from an MD.

Anxiety is becoming more and more common in today's stressful world. We live at a fast, never-ending pace with high expectations and frustrating outcomes. It can be so difficult to work through the anxiety you experience while still maintaining all of the other aspects of your life. I use a mindfulness-based therapy method called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) that has been proven through research to help with anxiety and stress. I love helping my clients who struggle with anxiety to find ways to manage those anxious feelings and thoughts and pursue the things that are most meaningful to them.
