Much like depression anxiety can be so pervasive. Anxiety robs us of so much of our focus and sometimes causes us to get involved in escape activities harmful to each of us. It has been such a pleasure to help people deal with their anxiety and to find effective treatments to plan to handle anxious times with grace. Relationships are far more successful when anxiety is managed properly.

Anxiety is a natural reaction to danger, a signaling system that protects us. But when anxiety is uncontrolled, it interferes terribly with the quality of life. Anxiety often responds well and quickly to treatment, but active client participation is key. The severity and type of anxiety presented determine the type of interventions used. I combine psychoeducation, psychotherapy, referrals for medication and/or recommendations for natural remedies. I help clients address general, pervasive anxiety, obsessive-compulsive anxiety, hoarding disorder (with collecting and acquiring), panic attacks, social anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and situational adjustment anxiety. Such problems are appropriate for Telemental health therapy when the problem severity is mild to moderate.

Everyone knows that anxiety and stress is everywhere and that eventually too much of it will kill you. What most of us do not know is how to manage it, or better yet how not to get overly stressed in the first place. Most of us spend much of lives jumping around putting out emergency fires. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a carefully thought out plan on how we manage life and succeed at love and finally be happy for a change. I know the way and can help. www.MarriageCounseling.org

Anxiety and stress appear at one end of an imaginary line and depression on the other end. These are connected at the center axis. As depression arises through bad thoughts and feelings from the past, so anxiety arises through projecting impressions of these thoughts and feelings into the future. Counseling guides you to realizing your lack of control over either dimension of past or future. Truly, choices and experiences undergone in the past have already happened while, in the future, they have not happened. In both cases, you come to see by elevating awareness you are freeing yourself from thoughts and feelings of future and past. Thereby you enter into the stillness of eternal now.
