Some aspects of stress are physiological. We are "hard-wired" to react to situations that may harm us with increased blood pressure, heart rate, etc. If our stressful situations are brief, we can quickly resume our normal functioning and be no worse for the wear. But when stress is chronic, or when we anticipate stressful things and become anxious, it takes a toll on our emotional and physical health. Dealing with chronic stress and anxiety means determining what you can and cannot change, and then how you will deal with each. I can teach you self-soothing techniques and how to change the way you think about what you cannot change, and we can examine together what CAN change!

Most stress is helpful as it motivates us to take care of our daily business. Anxiety however is intense worry or fear about what may or may not happen in the future. This is felt in moods- nervousness, irritation, or panic; thoughts- overestimating danger and underestimating ability to deal with the danger and physical reactions- sweaty palms, tense muscles, racing heart, dizziness, tunnel vision or trouble breathing. Treatment is 80% effective. Cognitive behavior therapy and insight oriented therapy along with medications, if needed, are really helpful. Understanding the anxiety and knowing what to do when the symptoms are present goes a long way to restoring a sense of well being

Anxiety Counselor

Taylor Keen, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 63304 - Nearby to Clarkson Valley.

Anxiety and stress are all too prevalent in our society of high expectations, fear of failure and desire for immediate fulfillment. Many times our lives feel out of control which causes us to clamp down and try to control our reality even more. I want to help you understand what is at the core of your anxiety or desire for control. This is often an area we feel we can "cope" with on our own, which often means we push it down and hope it goes away. I would like to walk through it with you to help process and learn a better way to deal with whatever life brings.

Stress is a fact of life. Learning to deal with it productively can require employing strategies that help alleviate anxiety in the immediate circumstance (mindfulness, relaxation techniques, etc.) and also strategies that help us identify and tap into deep and abiding sources of encouragement and strength, building our conscious connections with God and with others as we address our core fears and the core relational beliefs that may be sources of ongoing anxiety.
