Anxiety and reaction to stress are the most common issues of the clients that we work with. Anxiety is often a habit of 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. Our approach is to identify the habits that you have developed that cause you to feel anxious and find remedies for these habits. We offer online counseling, delivered to you wherever you are. You can self-register and self-schedule at mnonlinecounseling.com

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Anxiety has a tremendous impact on the people that struggle with it, as well as the people around them. It saps the energy from their life. Anxiety is fear. Anxiety focuses on the future. In therapy, we try to identify what the fear is and how best to work through it. There are a number of different treatment approaches including talk therapy, exposure therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Somatic Experiencing (SE).

Everyone feels anxiety and stress sometimes. But, when it starts to feel overwhelming, exhausting, unrelenting, and limiting, I can help. My approach is one of curiosity and compassion. I explore why anxiety and stress have become apart of you. What adaptive function did they originally serve for you? Are they present to protect you from fear of future failure or pain? Once we acknowledge and understand their original purpose, we work on finding new meaning for these defense mechanisms, and eventually let them go.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 55316 - Nearby to Columbus.

I know a lot about anxiety. A great deal of what I know is because of what I have experienced personally. As a result of my personal experience I have a great deal of passion about helping others. I have also learned a great deal about what goes on in one's thinking, behavior and emotions as a result of anxiety. I know there is hope and I can teach this to you. I will teach you about the neurophysiological underpinnings of anxiety and how the brain can actually be "rewired" by distinct changes in how one approaches one's thinking, behavior in day-to-day situations. I give practical homework that will help you get relief and likely even from the first session.
