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.

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.

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 part of everyday life but when they get overwhelming and they affect daily functioning a therapist can help you manage it. Therapy for anxiety can be very helpful to indentify what thoughts are adding to your anxiety and to teach you how to think differently to calm yourself down. Counseling can help you to identify which life events planted the seeds of panic or anxiety in you.

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!

It is possible to let go of worry and anxiety. You can experience less stress in your life. Let me help you find your peace.

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.

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 can be a debilitating condition. Studies show that talk therapy and in some cases medication together have the best success. Learn and implement available skills to reduce your anxiety through cognitive behavioral therapy. If your anxiety is trauma based then Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a successful modality that can reduce your anxiety. There is relief from anxiety!
