Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

3948A Kaimuki Avenue, Portland, Maine

I've found that the sensation of anxiety or stress most often decreases when a person allows themselves to experience it in a safe, compassionate setting. From a mindfulness perspective this is known as "turning toward" and letting the feeling "arise" instead of avoiding it. By using the breath to mediate their experience of anxiety, people I have worked with notice they are able to diffuse the intensity of these feelings. Learning to let go of anxiety and stress provoking thoughts and learning to recognize these thoughts simply as "thoughts" that don't automatically constitute meaning is equally important. Also, diet and exercise play a very role in every effective healing regimen.
