The pressures of modern life in stressful times or situations can lower a shadow of despair over anyone's sense of well-being. These may manifest as problems with anxiety, depression, substance abuse, and/or the inability to maintain positive connections in personal relationships. My goal in therapy is to simply be present with my client in a very real way that assists them as they learn to access their own inner resources and reclaim meaningful equilibrium in their lives.

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.

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.

Are you an anxious person? Psychotherapy has been shown by research to help reduce the symptoms of anxiety. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is one type of psychotherapy that focuses on exploring thoughts that lead to maladaptive responses and negative thinking, or “thinking errors” that cause dysfunctional behavior. In CBT the client becomes aware of the thoughts and is trained to develop new techniques for dealing with negative feelings. I also employ Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Acceptance and Committment Therapy (ACT) when working with clients. These methods teach clients to observe thoughts and feelings without judgement and to learn how to set personal goals.

Life is stressful; it causes anxiety. As we are developing in life, we are supposed to gain new coping skills to adjust to increasing demands and stressors of life, but that doesn't always happen. More and more often, people in our instant gratification, fast-paced culture are finding themselves without the adequate self-development and skills development they need in order to sustain themselves. Life events of all kinds can bring on a stressful crisis. This crisis could be due to: growing responsibilities and demands in any area and loss and grief of any kind It can be caused by social media, or by being too isolated, or too lonely...Therapies: Educational Groups, Individuals, Families!

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 and panic attacks can be debilitating. Avoidance is the best friend of the panic attack. This means that when you continue to avoid those place or things that you dread, you reinforce your phobia and strengthen its hold on you. There are techniques I can teach you to help you begin to challenge your fears. The fear of feeling fear is something you can soften in time.

Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health issue, affecting over 25 million Americans. Everyone gets nervous or anxious from time to time, but anxiety disorders are different. These disorders are accompanied by chronic anxiety brought on by certain situations that cannot be controlled. Anxiety disorder does not have to be permanent. Therapy can help to lessen or even eliminate anxiety from your life. Discussing the problem or event and gaining a better understanding of it can help to limit the anxiety associated with it.

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.
