Feeling stressed and anxious? More people are checked into ER for anxiety than any other reason in the U.S. We live in a fast-paced environment and sometimes we need to learn how to breath deeply and slow down and literally, "smell the roses." Talking through issues which are producing anxiety and stress in your life has proven to be extremely beneficial. Bottling up emotions causes the body to express them outwardly for you -- and most times not in ways we find comforting. Let's meet and discuss what is getting you stressed out.

The reason so many people don't want help managing their anxiety is because it serves. Often times anxiety helps us get work done on time, motivates us, and protects us from potential harm. The problem is, unmanaged anxiety is that app that keeps running in the background of your life, draining all your battery. When anxiety and stress pile up, you stop charging all the way, and eventually burn out. I help you get to a place where you and your anxiety can peacefully coexist, and teach you how to recognize, interrupt, and change the pattern where anxiety gets to takeover.

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.

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!

There are many type of anxiety disorders, with both common and unique symptoms. Anxiety can be brought on by a single stressful event or chronic difficult life experiences. Some of us are more prone to anxiety by our natural temperament and studies a family history in some cases. Treating anxiety starts with a thorough assessment to accurately diagnose and treat. Treatment is tailored to address you specific symptoms and usually involves cognitive behavioral therapy and/or medications. As a RN and therapist, I can assist with both assessment and treatment- in addition to medication management if needed. They symptoms of anxiety can be very dificult but the good news is that treatment works.
