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.

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 can often cause physical symptoms that impact daily functioning such as aches, pains, changes in appetite, a flight or fight response, heart racing, trouble sleeping, etc. Anxiety and stress can also cause one to feel stuck in the same thought(s) without the ability to move on from the thoughts and move forward. Increasing awareness into triggers of anxiety and stress can increase one's ability to effectively and proactively cope with daily anxiety and stress.

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.

We become vulnerable to the demands of our families, relationships, and professional worlds. We may find ourselves soaked in anxiety, anger, or resentment at situations where it's not always the best response. I can help you make a plan to deal with this stress and anxiety. It starts by identifying the sources of stress inducing feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. Often times we tend to overlook the true source. Eliminating stress is impossible but I can help you with management techniques. I can help you learn to have control over your stress and it's affects on your physical, emotional, and mental health. The goal is to gain a deeper sense of self awareness.
