Stress is not good for our body, our mind, our spirits. We know from the medical field that many diseases are complications of stress. If you feel overwhelmed, have difficulties with sleeping or concentration, panicky, fearful, tense, and like you can’t ever “let go,” you are probably suffering from anxiety. Psychotherapy can help you learn to identify stress triggers, cope with stress more effectively, and calm your nervous system. “Calming our nervous system” is the main tool people for living happy and productive lives. Don’t delay getting help for yourself, every additional week or year that you live with unnecessary stress may be limiting your lifespan!

Anxiety and Stress are two of my top areas for helping clients. Over the years working in this field, I have picked up many tools and tips to help my clients move from anxious to "Normal" in a fairly short period of time. Many of my clients wonder why they didn't come in years ago and what their lives would have been like without all of these intrusions. One of my tools called EMDR is able to knock out most anxiety producing issues very quickly. Some call it a miracle. Come see for yourself!!!

Franklin Sollars, and Associates

Licensed Psychologist

Anxiety and stress can be approached from two directions. One is aimed at symptom reduction - in other words, decreasing the feelings of anxiety and stress. The other direction, which can be employed at the same time, helps the client to understand the underlying causes of anxiety and factors that create feelings of stress. We work to reduce stressful situations, and also on how to handle the inevitable stress and anxiety that life brings.

Licensed Psychologist

It is popular in modern society to view anxiety as a "chemical imbalance in the brain." This is rarely the case. Instead, anxiety is typically the result of unaddressed and/or unresolved stressors in one's life and/or one's sense of self. I work extensively with people to address these stressors. Most often they find the outcome is very much a success.

In the fast paced frenetic environment we live in there is a tremendous increase in stress and anxiety. In my therapy approach we explore how to best reduce the stress in the clients life and we explore tools that can be easily implemented to reduce anxiety symptoms. Recognizing and catching the escalation of anxiety before it is too late or out of control is a strong focus of the therapy tools we discuss.

Grief Counselor & Thanatologist

The first step of healing is one of recognition. Anxiety and Stress will always be in our lives. They have similar characteristics. We tend to avoid the cumulative impact and fail to recognize that holistic care and treatment are important interventions for the reduction of anxiety and stresss. If the issues concerning anxiety stress are not addressed properly, we will become disillusioned with everything around us. Meaninglessness in most structures results in low self-esteem, and even alienation. The structure may be a complicated international organization, but it may also be the family - your family. My approach to dealing with anxiety and stress is one that fosters a positive attitud....

Clients move from “patterns of limited thinking” to developing alternative balanced thoughts and learn how to stop their anxiety by identifying and altering the thoughts accompanying the anxiety. We teach thought stopping, worry control, and coping with panic. Clients address their symptoms in four areas of physical reactions, thoughts, behaviors and moods. assign exercises from various workbooks with a focus on clients ability to identify and challenge “automatic thoughts” and “hot thoughts.” Utilizing the premise that emotions, thoughts, and behaviors are interconnected clients practice the skills of mindfulness and distress tolerance for managing their emotions.

Anxiety Counselor

Thomas Bruno, LLP

Specialist in Clinical Pyschology

Within driving distance of Oakland

The Society in which we live - work, families and relationships produce anxiety and stress in large doses. Thus, I am seeing clients identifying anxiety and stress as symptoms that plague their daily lives. Helping clients to be grounded in their faith and relationships is significant. Sometimes, people are so busy running busy schedules, they fail to take care of themselves. One can't always be giving without rebuilding oneself by doing things which make life feel good to her/him. It is always good to slow down and appreciate life as well as focusing on what is good in one's life rather than focusing on what isn't working. Teaching clients to take care of themselves is significant.

Anxiety Counselor

Thomas Cliff, JD, LMSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Oakland

When stress brings a sense of loss of control, we may experience symptoms far more intense than worry, for example, racing heartbeat, shortness of breath, chest pain, and difficulty thinking of anything but escape from the situation. This experience can cause problems carrying out normal activity. This is anxiety. We will work together to relieve anxiety by practicing self-calming methods and by better self-care. Medication may help relieve symptoms, requiring consultation with a psychiatrist. To achieve longer-lasting relief, we will trace the roots of this problem, looking for traumatic experiences that set the stage for anxiety and finding ways to reduce the power of those beliefs.

Anxiety Counselor

Laura Mindell, MA LPC NCC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Oakland

I am a psychotherapist who understands life can feel like a daily struggle. No one should have to endure these feelings alone. As a professional counselor, I compassionately listen and support clients as well as offer a therapeutic relationship that provides clients the opportunity to emotionally move forward and bring a healthy balance back into their lives. It is possible to heal, gain a sense of well-being, restore hope, and rekindle happiness even during the most challenging times. Clients that experience less stress/anxiety often feel more relaxed, increased energy, less stressed, motivated, experience satisfaction in relationships, and have an easier time coping with difficulties.
