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.

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.

Anxiety Counselor

Licensed Psychologist & Marriage and Family Therapist

In 55122 - Nearby to Oakdale.

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.

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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

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.

Doctoral Level Clinical Psychologist

In 55410 - Nearby to Oakdale.

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.

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

Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor

In 55122 - Nearby to Oakdale.

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.
