I bring to counseling 30+ years study and practice of mind-body-emotion connections and a wide variety of relaxation techniques. Since not every exercise works for every client, we'll experiment and co-create a practice tailored to each individual. In counseling sessions, presentations, workshops, and retreats, clients learn to release the mental, physical, emotional tensions that impair productivity, creativity, and joyful living. Cultivate the habit of using "micro-moments" and mindfulness to refresh and replenish without adding to an already busy schedule. Discover how you can re-energize by putting more play in your day!

With the growing expectations from work and family, anxiety and stress are an unavoidable part of our daily lives. However, persistent anxiety resulting in sleepless nights, chronic self-doubt, and preoccupation with the future can be paralyzing and exhausting! My clients report that talking to a supportive professional helps them maintain a balanced perspective in the face of stress. They feel empowered by understanding what triggers their anxiety, while having the tools to manage their expectations and cope more effectively. My clients may also learn ways to be assertive in relationships without worrying excessively about pleasing others.

Messages of fear and scarcity are prevalent in the American culture. Many of my clients are struggling with anxiety, panic attacks, social phobias or obsessive thoughts. Through the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and other coping skills these symptoms can be effectively managed, allowing clients to enjoy everyday life.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #97796

Fear, apprehension, worry, and nervousness about the future and how the future may affect you. That is anxiety. Anxiety interferes with work, personal time, family and friends. Anxiety can even keep you from living the life you dream about. You no longer have to suffer from the symptoms of anxiety, you can have the life you want without undo worry and fear. The process we use has been shown to be successful for all sorts of anxiety as we help you release those "negative emotions" that have kept you down so long. It is time you called and got the support you need to overcome and banish unnecessary anxiety from your live.

Sure we all have stress but sometimes it can effect your health and functioning. It does not have to be that way. Anxiety and stress are two of the most common struggles I have worked with over the years. I also know that depression usually goes hand in hand with stress and anxiety. I have the tools and skills to help manage all of those difficulties.

Many of my clients report the main trigger for overeating is "stress and anxiety". It sure helps them to know that their bodies have a predictable physical response to stress/anxiety that contributes to their compulsion to eat. Stress causes complex neurotransmitter reactions and affects our mood and behaviors. Dopamine increases rapidly under stress (focus, goal directed behaviors, energy, arousal) which leads to the decrease in Seratonin (feel good chemical). This can accelerate food cravings that are Seratonin stimulators, namely chocolate and sweets. That's at least part of the compulsive overeating picture. The ED is a bio-psycho-social problem and needs to be treated on all fronts.

Board Certified Licensed Professional Counselor Associate

Our high-pressure society suggests we be the best employees, parents, children, friends, and partners, all while maintaining energy and a youthful glow. The drive to be the best and to accomplish all the demands placed on us can significantly impact our physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental health in the forms of stress and anxiety. Through therapy, we learn how to experience stressful, anxiety-inducing triggers with a mindfulness approach. Rather than trying to suppress thoughts (thus causing more anxiety), we practice the best strategies for you to recognize stressful situations and to experience your thoughts or emotions in a way more in line with your values and life purpose.

Whether you're carrying everyday stress or have panic attacks, each is worthy of being listened to. As a therapist, I work with a range of clients including those with stress, panic disorder, social phobia, generalized anxiety disorder, etc. Everyone deserves to be free from worry and angst. The goal is this freedom. If/when anxiety does arise, you'll be skillful in accepting it, riding out the feeling, and letting it pass naturally. The goal is to help my clients with anxiety to achieve this goal.

In today’s society, stress and anxiety have become very prominent features of daily life. In many ways we have evolved to have much more comfortable lives, but with a feeling of insecurity as to how long it will last because of how unstable it can feel at times. Many individuals avoid this stark reality by a variety of coping mechanisms that in the end do not give them the peace of mind they are looking for. There is a way to accept that life is unpredictable by changing our outlook. Cognitive-behavioral therapy and mindfulness practices can help individuals change the way they look at their lives by encouraging individuals to see life in a more flexible way. Ultimately the goal is to live f
