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!

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.

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.

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 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 and stress are sneaky. Panic attacks and social anxiety can be debilitating, land you in the emergency room, and can often be linked with depression. If left untreated anxiety can grow into more serious conditions. Therapy can change your behavior and thoughts and restore calm and confidence. As a licensed clinical psychologist, I have the skills and strategies to help. I combine mindfulness, breathing, humor, and exercise with targeted, evidenced-based psychotherapy. You can stop suffering and regain control.

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!!!

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!

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.
