Anxiety and Stress hurt. Because loved ones likely don't know what to do for you and can't really understand what you are going through, it's hard for you to feel supported and understood by them. My office is your safe space where anything can be discussed without fear of judgment or ridicule. Especially in stressful times people sometimes lose sight of their own resiliency and their ability to cope. I work from a combination of accepted psychotherapeutic approaches and I will use my expertise, skills, perspectives, experiences and training to work with you in a collaborative approach to help you find and use your own strengths to move forward and succeed in your goal.

It's hard not to feel stress in today's world. Constant exposure to stress, without tools and practice to manage it begin to affect our physical health as well as emotional and mental well-being. Learning self-hypnosis, mindfulness and breathing techniques and reduce stress and improve how we react to stressful situations. Journaling, doodling, and visioning also reduce the impact of stress. Even if you don't consider yourself an artist, painting and drawing create peace thoughts. Learning a new hobby, such as knitting, whatever your age or gender, is documented to reduce stress. You can learn these techniques, strategies and skills in the comfort and privacy of my office.

Everyone feels anxiety at some point in their lives but when it starts to interfere with your life, counseling can help. Although anxiety can feel debilitating, it is treatable. People with anxiety don’t always share the same symptoms, they vary from person to person. Therapy will help you to reclaim your life and function in a chronically stressful world.

In today’s world anxiety and stress cannot be avoided, they are innate signals that danger is ahead and we should mobilize ourselves against it. So anxiety can be very helpful at moderate levels (e.g. getting us to study for an exam). But high levels of anxiety can be paralyzing especially when there is no identifiable danger. In working with clients around these issues I take a multifaceted approach, exploring his or her current circumstances (e.g. family, work, etc.), and experiences in the past that may have contributed to the current problem. I also focus on helping to alleviate symptoms with practical suggestions like exercise and meditation as well as the use of hypnosis and guided imagery.

A simple statement about the states of anxiety, depression and satisfaction might be: Depression is living in the past, Anxiety is living in the future, and satisfaction is living in the here and now. We have habitual patterns of thinking, and whole sets of beliefs underlying those patterns. Escaping from the grip of these is very enlivening. Just by taking the step of reaching out, the process begins.
