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)!"

We live in a fast paced, often hectic world. And we all experience a certain amount of worry and stress from time to time. It's only natural. Sometimes, that stress and worry can lead to physical health problems, trouble in our personal relationships, or decreased performance at work. This is when we know it has become too big to manage ourselves and it's time to seek help. You may have well-intentioned friends or family members telling you to "quit worrying so much" or "snap out of it", which probably only intensifies your thoughts of "what's wrong with me?" Let me help you uncover the roots of your anxiety and find healthier ways of coping with it. You CAN overcome this.

Anxiety Counselor

Kalli Matsuhashi, MA, LP, LMFT, LPCC

Licensed Psychologist & Marriage and Family Therapist

I have experienced great success in helping my clients reduce or eliminate the anxiety in their lives - whether it's panic attacks, a specific phobia, or more generalized anxiety. The key to this success is utilizing hypnosis. Hypnosis provides us with a powerful way to access the part of you that is creating the anxiety. Anxiety usually operates as a kind of internal "early warning system." Through hypnosis, we can access the warning system (the anxious part of you), and help it realize the counter-productive nature of the anxiety. Most symptoms are cleared in 3 to 7 sessions.

Anxiety Counselor

Christine Ruehling, LADC, QIDP

Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor

Within driving distance of Lake Elmo

I utilize Mindfulness, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy techniques and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy skills with clients to teach a variety of Coping Skills. These techniques have proven to be very effective in reducing anxiety in the moment and when practiced and included in a daily routine, they can even be effective in reducing overall levels of stress. I work with clients to develop a tool box of skills that they can use in the moment when needed and some that work well for them as daily calming and meditation techniques. The biggest challenge tends to be working the skills into a daily practice so that they become as automatic as the old addictive behaviors once were.

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).

Anxiety Counselor

David Halper, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Lake Elmo

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.

Anxiety Counselor

JoAnna Smith, MA, LMFT

Therapist/Life Coach

Within driving distance of Lake Elmo

I frequently have to remind myself of the expression, "We spend a lot of time worrying about things that never come to pass". Sometimes we invest so much time and energy worrying about the 'what if's" that we fail to enjoy the 'now' moments. We can become consumed by fear, panic, and uncontrollable worry. This may prevent us from enjoying our daily activities, from pursuing our goals or new relationships, or actively participating in the lives of our loved ones. Not only does this place added stress on ourselves, but it can be taxing on those around us. Our work together will identify, as well as alter, the thoughts, feelings, and defeating behaviors contributing to anxiety and stress

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.
