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 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.

Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor

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.

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
