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.

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

Feeling too much anxiety and stress is actually a common experience. A little bit of stress and anxiety can be motivating and serve a purpose, but when it is too much, then it is completely overwhelming and people can really lose hope and motivation. After carefully listening to the issues that are contributing, various tools are applied. For example, sometimes people don't have enough coping skills or organizational skills. By applying tools to your unique situation, levels of stress and anxiety can be greatly reduced to a comfortable and manageable level.

Stripped to the core, anxiety is basically fear of the unknown. Anxiety is quite common and most individuals experience anxiety from time to time. However, when anxiety interferes with the quality of your life it can be beneficial to speak with a counselor about your specific set of circumstances. My approach to treating anxiety is highly dependent upon the needs and specifics symptoms of the individual. However, almost always does it include a look at the individual's core beliefs about his or herself, others and the world in general. Investigation into these areas can be helpful in understanding the source of the anxiety which is a determinant in choosing the appropriate treatment.

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.

Unchecked anxiety and stress can take a toll not only on a person’s mental and emotional well-being, but on their physical health as well. I enjoy helping my clients overcome anxiety and stress with powerful cognitive tools which allow them to regain the energy, peace and joy they need. It's wonderful to remain a "planner" while retiring the "worrier."
