All of us face times of stress and/or anxiety in our lives. Stress is usually finite in duration; generally speaking, stress is a temporary reaction to the demands of the environment (an important deadline at work, studying for final exams if you are a student, or the looming loss of a loved one because of illness or infirmity). Anxiety is more diffuse and is often more long-lasting. We will help you normalize what you are feeling and even offer you some techniques and strategies to help you feel better and gain more control over your emotions.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

My approach to treating clients with anxiety and stress is by helping them understand the reason for their anxiety symptoms. Client learns the reason for their anxiety and the best ways to reduce and eliminate their symptoms. For clients the most important thing to know that they are not alone and that other people experience the same types of problems and that this disorder is treatable.

Licensed Psychologist

I have experience with reducing and eliminating panic attacks, curing phobias, and reducing more generalized anxiety. Anxiety can feel unbearable, and give you the sense that you are in danger. Here also looking at relationships can be very helpful to determine where your anxiety comes from (modeling anxious parents, getting a sense that the world is a dangerous place). and what thoughts and feelings your anxiety may be distracting you from. Getting to know you well can be instrumental in giving you relief from anxiety and reassure you that you are not alone.

Anxiety Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within driving distance of Highlands

While most treatment approaches for anxiety and stress are effective on the surface, they don’t treat the real problem. Mantras, deep breathing, and rational dialogues about your fear being irrational rarely work---for most people don’t believe it or you! Imagine if you can trick the brain into changing without you telling your conscious mind that you are changing it? Problem with anxiety and stress is that the brain in this state knows you want to change it and it resists. Contact Kevin@kevinfleminphd.com for the ultimate stress and anxiety solution that will literally change your brain's autonomic nervous system patterns while you sit on your butt. 877-606-6161.

Anxiety can cause a great deal of suffering. Fortunately, it is one of the most treatable problems. Anxiety problems, from panic attacks to compulsions, are highly responsive to the right forms of treatment. While anxiety itself can be scary, the good news is our treatments are very effective at reducing the emotional pain, changing the related behaviors, and can help to restore healthy relationships that may have been impacted by the anxiety issues.

Anxiety Counselor

Rev. Christopher Smith, LCAC, LMHC, LMFT

Helping you find wholeness...

Within driving distance of Highlands

Stress can be felt from feeling pressure at work (or from not working), from always being on the go but still finding not enough time in the day, from feeling more responsibilities than you can handle, from being unable to deal with small stressors when they come up, from finding some areas of your life having significant effects on other areas of your life, or from many other sources. You can get beyond the effects of this by discussing what is going on and finding alternate strategies to deal with situations. Christopher looks forward to heling you on this journey as you see to come to a place of wholeness and peace.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Highlands

Stress and anxiety are challenges we all experience at various levels and may range from feelings of discomfort to danger. When you are having difficulty functioning because of stress, we will explore painful past experiences which may trigger a defensive, protective reaction. By creating coping mechanisms and ways to relax and distract, we will work to increase your control over your responses. By using moderated exposure therapy and increasing mindful understanding you will see positive effects.

Anxiety Counselor

Jeff Robinson, MSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Highlands

There is so much to do! So much to balance. Am I doing this as well as I could? As well as I should. Anxiety and stress is a sign that the "critic" in us is working overtime. The critic is ensuring that we are not feeling that we are worthy, that we deserve. It tells us that we are lacking, that we are less-than. We need to normalize these feelings, create a safe space, create boundaries and realistic expectations.

Anxiety Counselor

David Mark, MS, LCSW

School Psychologist, Licensed Social Worker, Certified Gottman Therapist

Within driving distance of Highlands

We have all had moments of anxiety and we remain anxious due to the beliefs we hold about our reality and the thoughts we have about our situation. An individual becomes anxious when they overestimate the negative aspects of their situation and underestimate their ability to cope and function in problem situations. The anxious individual will imagine and create even more negative consequences than are actually present. I guide my clients to a more rational approach of focusing on the task at hand, not engaging in or imagining negative outcomes, and not engaging in or exaggerating possible negative outcomes. We focus together on ways that enable coping, behavioral change and flourishing in that situation.

Anxiety Counselor

Jessica Allen, LCSW, ACT

Cognitive Behavioral Therapist

Within driving distance of Highlands

While anxiety is a normal experience at points in our life, those who struggle with anxiety may try to find ways to cope and regain control of their emotions. Unfortunately, most of the ways that people try and cope with anxiety may be ineffective. One common way of doing this is to avoid the situations that may trigger anxiety. Typically, this will relieve the anxiety temporarily but it tends to exacerbate the overall anxiety. Think about it this way, if we are afraid of something so we avoid it, we are telling ourselves that that thing must really be scary! Only once we face it, might we find out that it isn’t so scary after all. This is part of the work that we will do together at Collabo

Does your life feel overwhelming to you? Do you spend too much time struggling to make decisions? Are dread and nervousness part of your daily life? Do you feel anxious spending time alone and/or full of dread at the prospect of socializing? Sharing your concerns in a safe environment can help dampen down anxiety and provide an opportunity to address the underlying issues.

Anxiety Counselor

Barbara Dietz, LCSW

Within driving distance of Highlands

Anxiety is at the root of more personal difficulties than can be imagined. It can prompt unrecognizable or unexpected behaviors. It can push us to make decisions that are not in our best interests. It can account for misplacing trust in untrustworthy people or circumstances, and it can prevent us from allowing close bonds to develop with others. The stress we experience frequently points to anxieties that we are often unaware of. Recognizing when we feel anxiety and stress is necessary to curb their influence on our lives. In work with me you will focus on learning to talk about your feelings and experiences so that together we can discover how to make your inner life less conflicted and mo....
