If you are experiencing stress and anxiety, then you know what a self-fueling cycle it can be - the endless worries, telling yourself you "just need to try harder," the frustration that comes when nothing you do seems to be make a dent in your stress level, leading to physical tension that causes you to feel like you can't get a deep breath or a good night's sleep. And then you worry and beat up on yourself even more. But please know that stress and anxiety respond really well to therapy! You and I will work together to figure out where to break into that cycle and how to do it quickly and most effectively. Often clients experience significant symptom reduction in 5 sessions or less.

Anxiety and reaction to stress are the most common issues of the clients that I work with. I think of anxiety as rehearsing bad events that will most likely not happen. The problem is that as we are "rehearsing" these possible events, our body is actually experiencing the event as if it is actually happening. This causes all sorts of physical and emotional responses, none of which are good for us or enjoyable. My approach is to identify the habits that you have developed that cause you to feel anxious and find remedies for these habits. I do in-office and online counseling. You can self-register and self-schedule at mnonlinecounseling.com.

I look at therapy as building a proverbial toolbox. The tools that fill this toolbox are coping skills. Some things we try will work for you while other coping skills won't. We work together to figure out what will work best for you. You will find that psychotherapy with me addresses your primary concern, not mine! I work with you to identify goals and we work to achieve those goals. With anxiety and stress, we look at what is happening and how to help you interrupt the patterns of anxiety and stress.

My approach to managing anxiety is twofold. I first evaluate your situation & understand the external factors that impact you. Next we design and implement a plan to address those factors. Skills like assertiveness, and limit setting may be used to deal with the external stressors. The second thing we do is increase your coping skills. We can use specific behavioral plans, changing self-talk, letting go, and using social supports to increase your resiliency. Stress reduction methods such as meditation, exercise, spiritual resources, and breathing exercises may be used. With time and some effort, you will find that your self-doubt and anxiety will be replaced will confidence & self-esteem.

Stress and anxiety are a normal part of life, but when you experience these symptoms as overwhelming, chronic, or debilitating they become too much to bear alone. Psychotherapy can help. My approach to treating patients who are troubled by anxiety and stress is by helping them understand the reasons for their symptoms and by helping to contain them in the therapy relationship. Over time, this process can reduce the intensity and duration of stress and anxiety, allow you to tolerate and relate to these symptoms as important information about something else going on in your internal or external world, and to gain a sense of self-mastery and increased freedom in your life.

I'll help you learn how to manage anxiety and stress so they don't feel so overwhelming. Some people are genetically "wired" to be more anxious or vulnerable to stress and worry. Loss and difficult experiences also contribute to a heightened state of anxiety. Understanding the sources of your anxiety and stress, and connecting with thoughts and behaviors that enhance your internal sense of well-being will allow you to live with anxiety or stress rather than feeling over-run by them. I teach mindfulness and relaxation techniques as part of reducing anxiety and managing stress.
