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)!"

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 Counselor

David Halper, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Columbus

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.

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'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.
