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 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.

2840 Humboldt Ave S, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55408 | 612-770-1799

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.

Licensed Psychologist and Licensed Marriage-Family Therapist

8460 Montgomery Court, Eden Prairie, Minnesota 55347 | 952.937.0866

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!

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.

Everyone feels anxiety and stress sometimes. But, when it starts to feel overwhelming, exhausting, unrelenting, and limiting, I can help. My approach is one of curiosity and compassion. I explore why anxiety and stress have become apart of you. What adaptive function did they originally serve for you? Are they present to protect you from fear of future failure or pain? Once we acknowledge and understand their original purpose, we work on finding new meaning for these defense mechanisms, and eventually let them go.

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.

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.
