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.

Life is full of stress and feelings of anxiety can get in the way of so many things we wish we could do. Anxiety can make everyday tasks feel impossible as it often leaves us feeling paralyzed with physical symptoms. Anxiety is often about a threat or fear of something real or imagined. Let's work together to identify that fear and learn to manage the anxiety that comes along with it.

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 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.

Let's be honest - there are many experiences and relationships that bring a lot of anxiety and stress into our lives. We can feel uncomfortable in the presence of others, fearful that our vision for life won't unfold how we want it to, or the challenge of making progress and using our time and energy in productive ways. We all struggle with this at different levels, but I believe we can take hope that because of who God is and in a close relationship with Him, we have a future that is incredibly bright. I want to offer clarity on how this is true even when it doesn't feel like it in your life.

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.

Ironically, anxiety is the root of most of our problems. Partner distress, sexual dysfunction, career disappointments, parenting troubles, etc. Anxiety, and how to deal with it, is the core of my therapy practice. We will explore your loyalty to fear and what exactly it is that you fear. Ultimately, whatever goal we decide, reducing anxiety is part of it.
