Working through anxiety and stress within the experiential model the client receives immediate feedback of strengths, obstacles, and opportunities for behavior change to learn, practice and develop coping skills. The experiential process is structured for the client to gain awareness to thoughts, feelings, and behaviors associated with the anxiety inducing circumstances as they may be rooted to the past and causing dysfunction in the present. The immediacy of this process provides opportunities to process emotions, practice relaxation and diversion techniques, and cognitive-behavioral techniques to work through the anxiety and stress inducing experience with support of the therapist.

Stress is at an epidemic rate today and things continue to get worse. More people are falling victim to the effects of chronic stress from the ever increasing demands of life. Constant business and worry can sometimes get the better of people. Anxiety is one of the most common issues that people are dealing with today. Worry and anxiety can be disruptive and prevent you from enjoying and even performing normal daily activities. Fortunately, stress, worry, and anxiety are some of the most manageable and treatable conditions. I work with individuals to learn skills and strategies to effectively deal with and overcome these issues.

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.

Anxiety and stress, if not clinically addressed, can make you physically sick. In fact, it can even shorten your life span. Even in the busy and hectic world we all live in, anxiety and stress can be managed at healthy levels. If you suspect that you suffer from an anxiety disorder, such as panic disorder or a phobia, the odds of recovering are very high. 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.
