I'll help you learn how to manage anxiety and stress so they don't feel so overwhelming. Some people are genetically "wired" to be more anxious or vulnerable to stress and worry. Loss and difficult experiences also contribute to a heightened state of anxiety. Understanding the sources of your anxiety and stress, and connecting with thoughts and behaviors that enhance your internal sense of well-being will allow you to live with anxiety or stress rather than feeling over-run by them. I teach mindfulness and relaxation techniques as part of reducing anxiety and managing stress.

My approach to managing anxiety is twofold. I first evaluate your situation & understand the external factors that impact you. Next we design and implement a plan to address those factors. Skills like assertiveness, and limit setting may be used to deal with the external stressors. The second thing we do is increase your coping skills. We can use specific behavioral plans, changing self-talk, letting go, and using social supports to increase your resiliency. Stress reduction methods such as meditation, exercise, spiritual resources, and breathing exercises may be used. With time and some effort, you will find that your self-doubt and anxiety will be replaced will confidence & self-esteem.

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 & 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)!"

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.

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.

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.
