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.

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.

We live in a world that leaves us all overwhelmed, bombarded by news and generally by bad news. It takes a lot of intention to get a balanced approach to living and to disconnect from such stressful environments. I approach the treatment of anxiety with a comprehensive and integrated approach. This includes cognitive behavior therapy, which can help someone with panic attacks regain a sense of control. Cognitive behavior therapy, including Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), is a powerful treatment for OCD, which otherwise can devastate a life. At other times, ISTDP is a great treatment for anxiety. This is when patterns of behavior (personality patterns) need to be changed.

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.

I specialize in the treatment of anxiety and anxiety disorders. I believe that anxiety is a reaction to something in our life that we are unhappy or uncomfortable with. A primary goal of therapy is to identify and understand what is underlying the anxiety symptoms. If the underlying situation or problem can be addressed, often the anxiety will subside. We also discuss in therapy other ways to manage symptoms when they arise, such as breathing techniques and gradual exposure.

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 comes when the situations of life create negative ideas about people or things. Once these negative thoughts become frequent, they can prevent you from finding joy in life. In therapy, we work through the negativity, exploring its causes, and then find coping strategies to get around them. Once you know where the negative ideas come from, you can face the situations with a fresh outlook. And we act as a team to create it.

I can help you identify and address the thought and situations that are contributing to your anxiety. In a safe, supportive and nonjudgmental environment, you can work through difficult emotions and learn ways to gain more control over your thoughts and your life. In your counseling sessions, you can also develop more self-awareness, breathing techniques and other mindfulness-based stress reduction strategies to reduce anxiety and tension.As you develop more mindfulness, you can also begin to identify, examine and address any self-limiting behaviors or negative self-beliefs that keep you from coping effectively.

Life can present you with difficult situations which are hard to process and move past. These challenges are not on your timeline and affect everything. Having worked in many healthcare settings, I am familiar navigating life-changing events and grief. I understand the territory of encountering loss, coping with trauma, the complexity of the medical system and living with illness. These issues can have ripple effects on your relationships, sense of self and perceptions of the world. I know how complex things can get, and I will support you during this process.

I approach anxiety and stress from two angles. 1) Exploring what tools and techniques you can use right now when you leave this office to feel immediate relief and continue to use in your daily life. 2) Through a deeper process over time, exploring what underlying causes may be contributing to or causing the symptoms of stress and anxiety and working together to understand, heal and shift these so that you experience long term resolution.
