If anxiety and stress are keeping you from enjoying life to the fullest we need to explore the source of both and process together ways in which you can reduce your stress levels or find ways to cope until your circumstances change.

Everyone experiences anxiety or stress in some from or another at some point in their lifetimes. But with those who suffer severely from them, anxiety and stress can make it very difficult to make it through a normal day. When working with clients who suffer from anxiety and stress my goal is to teach them a variety of ways cope. In my sessions I teach easy techniques that can be used in a pinch, to more in depth anxiety and stress reductions techniques. My goal is for my clients to feel like they are not alone I their suffering and that anxiety and stress can get better with work.

Life is full of stress and feelings of anxiety can get in the way of so many things we wish we could do. Anxiety can make everyday tasks feel impossible as it often leaves us feeling paralyzed with physical symptoms. Anxiety is often about a threat or fear of something real or imagined. Let's work together to identify that fear and learn to manage the anxiety that comes along with it.
