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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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 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.
