Most anxious/stressed clients feel trapped by the circumstances that life has presented them. By introducing some elegantly simple tools, you will discover that there are openings (physically and energetically) that can dissolve frustrating anxiety/depression. Importantly, you become aware of perceptions and experiences not previously available to you. The tools/exercises that we use in session experientially shift us out of our everyday minds - This allows us access to another intelligence within a naturopathic pathway supported by our bodies, our hearts and nature.

I help people identify the triggers to their anxiety and develop a system to deal with stress before it deals with them! What would your life be like if you weren't continually activated in negative ways by stress? We will work together to make small steps toward change. Clients report less chronic pain when they are managing anxiety in healthy ways. It is possible to reduce anxiety and live life in a more vivid way, even if you situation is not optimal. I can teach you to acknowledge and release these negative thoughts, thus releasing the "trauma" that has built up in your body (stored stress and anxiety)

Anxiety- a condition affecting nearly 20 million Americans. It can impair a person’s ability to function in a work or school environment, social situations or in other areas of life. Symptoms can include: • excessive worry • apprehensive anticipation or avoidance of situations • intrusive and worried thoughts or concerns • restlessness • feeling “on edge” • difficulty concentrating • irritability • sleep disturbance (difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, nightmares, etc.) Anxiety may also cause a number of physical symptoms (muscle tension, excessive sweating, headaches, elevated blood pressure, etc.) Talk therapy and medication have proven to be helpful in treating anxiety.

Did you just yell at your partner because you felt overwhelmed and irritable. Are you always feeling like you never reach your goals and are constantly rushing yourself and your family. In our society of never ending pressure and high expectations people are often feeling chronically stressed and anxious. Neurobiology has taught us a great deal of the impact of anxiety on brain and emotional functioning. Couples and individual therapy are an excellent resource for learning how to identify your triggers for anxiety. In my work with couples and individuals we work on learning and implementing understanding and tools to manage and decrease stress and anxiety wherever possible.

Anxiety and stress are interrelated. Generally people with anxiety disorders, including obsessive-compulsive disorder, tend to internalize conflicts that cause them to always be stressed out, which affects their thinking and behavior. Through an eclectic psychotherapy approach that includes psychodynamic, cognitive and behavioral work, I help them release the fears and angers that underlie the build-up of stress. In time they learn to moderate their feelings, cope better with stressful situations and live a calmer life.

Anxiety and stress are something we all have to deal with. It can result in panic attacks, phobias, sleep disorders, physical symptoms that can resemble medical conditions, as well as effect our overall physical health. Identifying triggers and effective coping mechanisms are good first steps to helping avoid and alleviate symptoms, but ultimately it is necessary to find out what caused the anxiety in the first place. This may be a recent event or something that happened decades to go. Giving yourself time to work through it is an essential factor, as pressure to improve too quickly and deadlines can be anxiety-producing.

While we all live with some degree of anxiety and stress in our lives, there are times when the anxiety and stress levels overwhelm us and our usual ways of coping no longer work. When overwhelmed by stress an anxiety, it is not uncommon to shut down, engage in poor decision making or partake in destructive escape routes. I help clients gain perspective, problem-solve, and find ways to increase support during times of extreme stress, anxiety, loss and disappointment. Clients with whom I work with on issues of anxiety and stress report feeling more hopeful, more capable, reassured and better able to tackle life's challenges and disappointments.

Many people struggle with anxiety and stress, and I work frequently with these issues in my practice. These issues take different forms for each person, and therapy is individualized for the person with whom I am working. There are thoughts and thought patterns that contribute to a person's anxiety and sometimes panicky symptoms. Through integrating cognitive-behavioral therapy techniques with also exploring the underlying emotions that are contributing to the anxiety, we can work together to reduce your anxiety and stress.

Anxiety in any form is an uncomfortable physiological experience. And it is a natural human habit to want to avoid the situations that cause this uncomfortable feeling. The problem is that anxiety follows us as we go, claiming greater territory in our lives, as we, in turn, shrink away from new experiences and opportunities. As your therapist, I will help you change your relationship to anxiety. Through our work, you will find that by deliberately seeking out that discomfort and embracing it, anxiety retreats. This is the path to regaining lost ground, claiming new territory, and increasing your self-confidence and agency.

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.
