Anxiety and stress can be debilitating, affecting all areas of life--school, work and relationships especially. Anxiety and stress are internally self-perpetuating, and can lead to panic attacks or anxiety attacks. Panic and anxiety attacks are scary and can feel like you're dying, making someone feel hopeless and helpless. However, therapy can provide significant relief from anxiety and stress. Through the use of talk therapy, yoga and conscious breathing, art and sand tray therapy, and EMDR; relief is possible. Therapy can provide the relief you're looking for, so you can finally rest peacefully, live life confidently and fearlessly, and finally take a deep breath and breathe.

We are not born with anxiety. Anxiety and stress are a learned way to cope with difficult situations, and they actually do not help the situation, they just make it worse. Medication treats the symptoms, and can be helpful, but it does not heal anything. I want to work with you to help discover what is the reason you react this way and others don't. We can explore how you learned this, and discover if there is indeed a better coping mechanism available to you.

As a therapist, I utilize many stress reduction techniques for the treatment of anxiety and stress disorders. One technique I have had succes with is biofeedback. This assists the individual to develop a healthy coherence and reduce symptoms significantly. I generally utilize a holistic approach which addresses every areas within an individual's life. Therapy may target the negative patterns and cycles that cause symptoms such as; self-care and prioritizing, life adjustments and changes, or in some cases, due to abuse or trauma. Whatever the situation, there are healthy and therapeutic techniques to resolve or reduce symptoms significantly.

Anxiety is the number 1 mental health issue for women and number 2 for men! For many, waking up in the middle of the night feeling anxious with our minds racing, is not uncommon. We live in an overstimulating society that encourages busyness to the detriment of ourselves! Learning to slow down and rest, assessing the activities of our lives, being able to say no and not feel guilty and learning ways to assess the social media and electronics use is part of the work we do in therapy. It's possible to have a life that is not anxiety-driven!

Anxiety and stress is something we all experience in life. However, if you are overcome with anxiety and unable to function in a healthy manner, counseling may be necessary. In my sessions, I focus on anxious thought patterns that may or may not be rational. Cognitive Behavior therapy is used as a tool to help those who suffer from anxiety and stress to evaluate the source of stress and find ways to alieviate the intensity of the anxiety. Thought patterns are analyzed and new thought patterns are taught. Each client is encouraged to take steps to create a new thought pattern process, and pinpoint areas in their lives that need to be dealt with.

I use Self Psychology (a branch of psychoanalysis that uses human developmental science, sustained empathy and the therapy relationship itself to understand and bring healing to problems). I work from a warm, empathic standpoint in which I try to enter your shoes and understand your experiences as you do, not as others do. Insight is not the main goal (although that certainly happens), rather formative moments of feeling tuned into, deeply understood and emotionally held are the goal. These offer new emotional experiences that really catalyze psychological growth and healing. Benefits include increased: feelings of vitality and realness, hope, self-esteem, emotion regulation, etc.
