Anxiety is a gripping, extremely uncomfortable feeling. The natural response to anxiety is to do anything you can to get rid of it. So, when you're feeling anxious, you are likely to engage in a variety of behaviors to help you feel better. These might include avoiding places, situations, or people that have made you anxious in the past or it might involve behaviors that help you feel better for a short time. The problem is that avoidance and behaviors that do not directly address the root of the problem don't work to resolve anxiety. My work with anxiety problems has been extremly successful in helping clients address the roots of their anxiety as well as the anxious feelings themselves

Everyone feels anxiety at some point in their lives but when it starts to interfere with your life, counseling can help. Although anxiety can feel debilitating, it is treatable. People with anxiety don’t always share the same symptoms, they vary from person to person. Therapy will help you to reclaim your life and function in a chronically stressful world.

In today's world, we are stressed as never before. Multitasking has become a way of life for many people, and we are all juggling more balls than ever before.Therapy for anxiety and stress can help you to live and enjoy the life you have chosen. You will learn to be an "actor," rather than a "reactor" in your life. I will help you to discern what is within your control and what is not. Then you will be able to make changes, a step at a time, to live anxiety and stress-free.

One of my main areas of focus is treating anxiety. I use a physiological approach rather than a cognitive approach since anxiety manifests physically and thus must be treated accordingly. Combining several techniques such as yoga, breathing exercises, sensory focusing, and visualization can be very powerful in helping the central nervous system relax and stop being in "alert" mode. As a result, clients report being less stressed in general if they practice these techniques regularly and not just during therapy sessions. Additionally, in some cases, medication and/or natural supplements may be necessary in order for the person to have the best outcome.

There are few things worse than being paralyzed by anxiety and/or stress. I have worked with people experiencing symptoms that mirror a heart attack when faced with a panic attack; it is scary, overwhelming and debilitating. The good news is that there are ways to minimize this overpowering discomfort. I have helped my clients learn simple breathing exercises, relaxation techniques and other helpful coping skills to help them function better when facing overwhelming stress. I want to help you to navigate your life so that anxiety and/or stress is not winning and robbing you of joy in your daily activities. Trust me on this one, I have seen the smiles on my clients who have won.

I want to help you get relief from your anxiety. Living with a lot of anxiety can feel like you don’t quite get to be yourself. It can leave you not enjoying life as much as you’d like. Sometimes it can impact your relationships. We’ll look at the situations that trigger your anxiety. We’ll track what your perceptions are, what behaviors you do, what other feelings are there along with the anxiety. Once we have a better understanding of the anxiety, we can explore more effective ways of managing it. I will also help you learn the practice of self-compassion, as well as tools that can help reduce anxiety.

Anxiety and stress stem from the perception that you are not up to whatever challenges life may present. I help people to take a closer look at the ways in which they think that they do not have the resources they need to meet life's challenges. Sometimes this involves finding strengths and resources inside yourself that you did not realize you had. Sometimes is involves having the courage to look for such strength inside yourself and to ask others (such as fellow members of a therapy group) to help you.

Stress and anxiety have always existed. Our brains encode fear easily as a way to protect us from danger. A small amount of angst can help us feel motivated, but when it grows, it can stop us in our tracks. With the rise of technology, many people feel submersed in stress. Constant emails make us feel like work never ends. We text at meals times instead of having real conversations. Consider the stressful impact of 24/7 access to negative news reports, traffic filled commutes, over-schedulled lives, and its easy to see a recipe for anxiety. Learning to be mindful, taking breaks and truly connecting emotionally can create confidence to face fears and even dissolve them.

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.
