Stress is often not the problem, it's how we think or react to stress. Stress in itself is not harmful; it is our learned response, patterns of thinking, such as thoughts of worry, which automatically triggers a reaction of fear inside. Stress can a friend because it is what gets us moving…it is what moves us to forward action! And, by design, that is, the way all of life operates, not just human beings. In other words, this is not theory, this is science. Learning deep breathing, and developing awareness of the connection between your thoughts, feelings and behaviors, among other practices, are powerful solutions to help you regulate anxiety and stress.

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.

Anxiety comes from conflicting emotions, and can end up creating crossed wiring in the brain that is difficult to imagine Getting to the root of anxiety is key, and I do that through brainspotting (https://brainspotting.pro/) and biofield tuning (https://biofieldtuning.com/). Working with the body is essential, so that the person can begin to manage the intense feelings and release the stress.
