Anxiety has a tremendous impact on the people that struggle with it, as well as the people around them. It saps the energy from their life. Anxiety is fear. Anxiety focuses on the future. In therapy, we try to identify what the fear is and how best to work through it. There are a number of different treatment approaches including talk therapy, exposure therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Somatic Experiencing (SE).

We become vulnerable to the demands of our families, relationships, and professional worlds. We may find ourselves soaked in anxiety, anger, or resentment at situations where it's not always the best response. I can help you make a plan to deal with this stress and anxiety. It starts by identifying the sources of stress inducing feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. Often times we tend to overlook the true source.

Anxiety and reaction to stress are the most common issues of the clients that we work with. Anxiety is often a habit of 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. Our approach is to identify the habits that you have developed that cause you to feel anxious and find remedies for these habits. We offer online counseling, delivered to you wherever you are. You can self-register and self-schedule at mnonlinecounseling.com

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

"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 creates a powerful physiological response, that intensifies with chronic stress. Intrusive thoughts are on an unending playback loop, like gerbils on a wheel. Counseling teaches new skills for managing emotions, for stopping thoughts, and for replacing them with more life-affirming ones. Charlie uses skills from cognitive behavioral therapy to help us see things in a new light. He also teaches mindfulness skills, skills in how to control what we are paying attention to. When our anxiety is born from trauma, then going deeper into understanding how our past shapes our present views or ourselves is essential. We can learn effective skills for emotional self-regulation.

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.
