Anxiety and stress can be treated using a variety of cognitive behavioral interventions. Often the beliefs a person holds as well as the thoughts & feelings have a powerful physical effect including muscle aches, stress headaches, and even nausea. Relief can be found in relaxation techniques, meditation, and deep breathing; however, lasting relief comes by altering the thinking, which drives the anxiety from cues (internal thoughts, 'I've never been good at this', or this will always plague me) or from anxiety from future events (e.g. what if I lose my job?) Challenging these beliefs and learning to self-soothe can reduce panic attacks, shakiness, irritability and avoidance.

Often Anxiety and stress are caused by fears; fear of being imperfect, not enough, not accepted, not valued. These fears are often lies that they have been believing for quite a while. I work with clients to identify the lies they are believing, stop that believe and begin to tell themselves the truth about who they are. This empowers them and increase their self-esteem and confidence.

Anxiety and stress are among the most common problems facing people today. The era we live in has even been called the "Age of Anxiety". Throw stress in there as well and both are problems we all face at times. If anxiety and stress get out of hand, however, they can make life difficult or even impossible. The good news is you can overcome anxiety problems and learn to manage stress. In my practice, I work with my clients to help them learn the tools to manage or even eliminate these negative feelings and get back to living the life they want--the life they deserve.

Since treating anxiety disorders is a specialty of mine, people who consult with me on these issues have a high rate of success. Don't wait it out any longer.

The experience of anxiety and stress can be caused by multiple factors, such as mind, body, emotions, personality tendencies, relationships, and so on. For that reason, I offer a wide variety of resources to help you change how you are responding to anxiety and stress with very practical coping skills, as well as exploration into relational or other reasons for the anxious response. We feel and store emotion in the body, and anxiety is there to alert us that something needs changed. We all have some measure of anxiety and stress at times, it is just finding out what is causing it for you, and what you need to manage and minimize it.

Without a doubt, the most common problems that people come to see me is related to anxiety and stress in their lives. Quite often they feel unsettled, scared, confused, and frustrated when they first come to see me. Some have panic attacks as well. This is a terrible way to live. And here's some good news: anxiety and stress can be treated, quite often with great success. I like to take a good history to see how much of your anxiety and stress is related to current circumstances, perhaps an underlying health condition, and possible genetic causes. Then we can explore different treatment options that work for you. I like to use a collaborative approach. This gets the best results.
