Anxiety Counselor

JoAnna Smith, MA, LMFT

Therapist/Life Coach

Within driving distance of Lakeville

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

If you are experiencing stress and anxiety, then you know what a self-fueling cycle it can be - the endless worries, telling yourself you "just need to try harder," the frustration that comes when nothing you do seems to be make a dent in your stress level, leading to physical tension that causes you to feel like you can't get a deep breath or a good night's sleep. And then you worry and beat up on yourself even more. But please know that stress and anxiety respond really well to therapy! You and I will work together to figure out where to break into that cycle and how to do it quickly and most effectively. Often clients experience significant symptom reduction in 5 sessions or less.

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.

Stress and anxiety are a normal part of life, but when you experience these symptoms as overwhelming, chronic, or debilitating they become too much to bear alone. Psychotherapy can help. My approach to treating patients who are troubled by anxiety and stress is by helping them understand the reasons for their symptoms and by helping to contain them in the therapy relationship. Over time, this process can reduce the intensity and duration of stress and anxiety, allow you to tolerate and relate to these symptoms as important information about something else going on in your internal or external world, and to gain a sense of self-mastery and increased freedom in your life.

Anxiety Counselor

Christine Ruehling, LADC, QIDP

Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor

Within driving distance of Lakeville

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 & 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)!"

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.

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.

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!

Anxiety can be paralyzing! Feeling stressed, irritable, overwhelmed, confused and in a panic can be very draining and disabling to your life. While we work together, we can come to learn about these feelings and situations that bring rise to the anxiety. Therapy is a place that may allow you to learn more about yourself to gain more insight and options in managing these intrusive feelings that interfer with you being able to fully live your life verses wanting to withdraw. Reaching out for professional help can begin the process so you do not have to feel so helpless and alone. Feel free to call to set up a time for therapy for yourself. Life does not have to always be stressed filled.

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.
