Living with stress and anxiety is hard on our bodies. At their worst, they cause tense muscles and shallow breathing. At their worst, they can cause high blood pressure and other physical problems. First, you and I will explore where you feel stress and anxiety in your body and then you'll learn relaxation tools and healthy self-talk so that you can feel in control rather than out of control.

Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

Anxiety and stress can have an impact on all aspects of our lives. When they are at appropriate levels, they can be helpful, but when they are too present, problems arise. I help people who come to see me identify how much stress is too much, and provide tools they can use to manage more effectively. I use brain based science and mindfulness techniques to help reduce the negative impact anxiety and stress have on people's lives.

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.

As the late Claire Weeks once wrote, “Anxiety is nothing more than over-sensitized nerves kept alive by bewilderment and fear.” I can help you create an action plan to heal over-sensitized nerves and manage your stress more effectively. Develop your ability to recognize the stress response more quickly and respond in ways that: reduce fear and anxiety and increase self-mastery.

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 Stress is one of the leading concerns facing our society today. The difficulty is that it is a systemic problem. The more stressed you becomes the more anxious you are and vice a versa. My approach to anxiety and stress is to assist you in learning calming techniques that can be utilized every day. This is to assist in decreasing not only the thoughts associated with depression but the body symptoms as well. Through this process we will also work on changing negative thought patterns that cause you to be trapped in the cycle of anxiety and stress.

Anxiety & stress are an unavoidable part of life. But if theses feelings become overwhelming, lead to lack of sleep, or feelings of panic, it is time to seek help. Fortunately, anxiety and stress are very treatable. First we will identify and explore what the cause of your anxiety is. Based on your personal situation, we will create a customized treatment plan. Often this includes monitoring and changing self-talk, developing relaxation techniques, and creating new beliefs; i.e. "Everyone makes mistakes and so can I (without beating yourself up)!"

Everyone experiences anxiety in life. But when it becomes too much, it saps the very life out of us and causes our quality of life to suffer. This is where action needs to be taken and you must proactively find a therapist who can help you learn effective anxiety management techniques. People who suffer from anxiety often just take medication and fail to utilize proven anxiety reduction methods. The approach I use is to help clients learn how to calm the physiological reactions to anxiety while actively changing the negative thought patterns of worry and fearful thinking. Anxiety is an ingrained pattern of responding to stress which you can hange!
