Through a mind, body, and spirit approach, you will learn how to relax and manage stress and anxiety. In this busy world, it's easy to get stressed out. Often times we over identify with our jobs, our responsibilities, our things, our bodies, and even our own philosophies. "Over identifying" leads to self criticism and or stressful living! Each session will provide you relief, and learn strategies to take charge of your body and mind, so you can feel at ease while getting your "todo"list complete. My expertise in breathwork, cognitive restructuring, hypnosis, yoga and behavior modification will help you relax.

Everyone experiences anxiety at some point, but for some the anxiety is so frequent or intense that it interferes with their lives or even triggers panic attacks. I use Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to help my clients get a sense of control over their own anxiety. We collaborate to learn skills to reduce the frequency or intensity of the anxious feelings, to tolerate the anxiety when it does occur so they can still function through it, and to practice habits that reduce stress and improve general mental health.

To help you manage your stress and anxiety symptoms, we start with understanding the nature and patterns of your symptoms in relation to environmental triggers, traumatic life events, and unhelpful thinking patterns that influence your daily perspective. Using a collaborative alliance, we will look for better ways to manage both your external stressors and internal reactions. A cognitive-behavioral approach offers practical methods to understand how thought patterns influence emotional reactions and behaviors. By redirecting and re-framing your thoughts with alternative thoughts, you can experience a reduction in unpleasant emotions and an increase in personal effectiveness.

From time to time most of us will experience stress and anxiety. From a neuro-biological perspective, some of us are more prone to anxiety when we feel threatened or defensive. We together can use many strategies to lower the level of anxiety and work through the stress. Some of them include meditation and deep breathing, visualizing and 'anchoring' times you felt competent and have gotten though a stressful event successfully, writing journal of your experiences, using EMDR to visualize experiences in a different way changing your beliefs to positive ones.

A certain level of stress and anxiety is normal, however there are times when it becomes to overwhelming. My objective is to help you observe times when your anxiety is not as controlling and build upon those copping skills that you already have.

Licensed Psychologist

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.

Anxiety and stress seem to be everyone's typical standard way of life these days...but that doesn't make them any easier to deal with. Though they can certainly be linked, stress and anxiety can be very different, including the way they are treated. From everyday issues to healing from past traumas and losses, anxiety can steal your quality of life. The good news is that anxiety is one area that is particularly receptive to therapy and counseling - much can change in a short period of time with the right intervention and help.

There are many things that cause us to feel uneasy or uncertain as we move through our daily activities. We may be worried that we will be late for work or may feel anxious about getting a job. Together we will look at ways to reduce stress and make changes to make life less complicated. Sometimes the level of anxiety always is very high and I will help you find interventions to reduce that feeling of being overwhelmed. We may be able to use cognitive behavioral techniques along with meditation and tai chi movements. All sessions will focus on helping you move toward a less stressful life.

The fastest growing malady of our day! As we shall share with you, the sympathetic nervous system has many 'on' buttons, and not many 'off' buttons. And, erosion of stability in family, the workplace and society have resulted in people living at very high stress levels. We need to develop 'off' switches, and to have the capacity to change our internal experience of reality. To do this well, you should be provided with physiological, cognitive, emotional, and other strategies.
