A certain amount of anxiety and stress is expected and common in everyday life. When our response to these things becomes "stuck" or in "overdrive", we end up having a difficult time. This is part of the "fight, flight or freeze" response that our mind and body does automatically. At some point in life we needed to respond in this way, unfortunately we subconsciously stayed there without going back to our previous state of calm. Together we can find the reasons why and then increase your awareness and coping skills so YOU are in control again.

Anxiety disorders are extremely common and highly treatable. When a person experiences prolonged anxiety, the body releases stress hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol. These hormones are helpful and serve a purpose, such as when you are in a physically dangerous situation, and are responsible for the fight-or-flight response. However, long-term exposure to these hormones can compromise your immune system. This makes you more susceptible to infections, such as colds, the flu, and other viral and bacterial diseases. The approaches I use with anxiety disorders: Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and others.

For some families, it may be difficult to sustain a commitment to therapy without proper insurance coverage.
