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.

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.

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!

Anxiety Counselor

Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

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.

Living with anxiety and high levels of stress can be debilitating. If you want to feel more peace, understand WHY you feel the way you do, and learn the tools to successfully combat the thoughts and emotions you live with than contact me. There is often more anxiety about calling or contacting a counselor than there is during our time together. I know once you make the choice to call you won't regret it and you will be able to take a deep breath and let out a sigh of relief because you just took step #1 in finding freedom from your anxiety and stress!

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 Psychologist and Licensed Marriage-Family Therapist

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!
