I assist the client in identifying the underlying cause of their anxiety and stress. Each client is taught relaxation and breathing techniques. Together we devise the best plan for their overall emotional health using various psychotherapy approaches. I am trained in trauma which may be a causation of the stress or anxiety. I am also trained in EMDR therapy.

Anxiety is the antagonist of spontaneity. For a person to make more adaptable choices they must be warmed up. As a person's spontaneity goes up their anxiety goes down. There are many ways to cope with stress such as controlled breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, guided imagery, and supportive resourcing for safety. During therapy we use some of these methods along with role play to help the individual find more adaptive solutions. When dealing with serious anxiety we have found regular "talk therapy" to be less effective then learning in action. We use Psychodrama methods and techniques to move the person past where they are stuck. This is for anyone with anxiety, or stress.

Sure, everyone experiences anxiety and stress in life, but sometimes it becomes so overwhelming that it begins to threaten our ability to function in daily life. We do not have to be bound by fear. Anxiety and stress treatment and counseling can help equip us with more effective coping strategies so that normal life stress does not become dis-stress. And if one has already reached the level of distress, counseling can help sort out which of our problems need creative solutions, and which ones simply need to be pushed off our plates.
