Anxiety/Stress affects most people's lives. Whether it comes from work - professional or personal contacts, interpersonal relationships at home, financial issues, excessive work load, health...people need to learn positive coping skills to help calm down while maintaining their ultimate productivity. Sometimes I've asked people if they've tried something & they say they heard of it, but never actually tried it. We can only change if we're willing to put the changes into action! I'll be with you through your journey. Worrying about things that are out of our control is wasting time because it'll have no effect on the outcome. We'll learn to relax in healthy ways.

Anxiety is a physiological response that occurs in several body systems. Stress may be one contributing cause. But there are so many others including undiscovered medical issues, unproductive thought processes, the use of stimulants, and co-occurring mental health issues. Once we identify anxiety's origin, we can draft a useful treatment plan and address the problem. And depending upon the anxiety's origin, our approach will vary. It's a cognitive-behavioral, reality based, solution-focused process that takes some time, but the results are worth the process.

Most people experience normal worry and anxiety from time to time; however, when this anxiety begins to disturb a person's overall functioning, it may be time to seek outside help. Anxiety is a very common disorder and one that can be effectively treated with therapy. People are often able to identify the emotions evoked with anxiety (such as fear or panic), but they are less often able to identify the thoughts involved that lead to this emotion. I work with clients to increase their coping strategies and pay better attention to and identify their thoughts that lead to uncomfortable emotions, and then work to stop or change these negative thoughts to healthier and more productive thoughts.

First, take a deep breath; hold it for 4 seconds; now let it out and say "Ahhhh". Anxiety and stress are a part of life and there is no way around it. But the symptoms can be managed well. Which type do you have? The six major types have their own distinct set of symptoms: generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder (anxiety attacks), phobia, post-traumatic stress disorder, and social anxiety disorder. Treatment for each type varies. I use a variety of methods and techniques such as hypnosis, meditation, cognitive behavioral therapy, self- esteem / self -care & psycho-education. Go ahead, take another deep breath and see yourself feeling better.

I work with many patients living with daily anxiety and stress. Anxiety and stress can rob a person of their quality of life and can ultimately negatively effect their physical health. Accordingly, I look at it as almost a personal safety issue. Quickly developing strategies to manage anxiety and stress is essential for my patients. Honestly, sometimes a person can not do it without medication, at least in the short term. Accordingly, I refer patients to one of several caring psychiatrists who can treat them as a supplement to talk therapy.

Does your child seem more anxious or stressed than normal? I work with youth aged 3-25 who are experiencing some level of anxiety, or experiencing some level of stress. This may include homework stress, behavioral issues, self-harm, sexting, tantrums and arguing/talking back. I can support parents in different techniques, because even good parents need extra support at times. Kids don't come with owner's manuals, and we tend to default to our own family's dynamics as parents. Simple changes can have a significant effect on your child's behaviors. I also help youth identify their feelings and make better choices. Don't hesitate to call for a free phone consultation!

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.
