Anxiety can take many forms, including excessive stress, low self-esteem, panic attacks, phobias and compulsions. When fear or anxiety is experienced on a daily basis it can become so familiar that it goes un-noticed until problems arise that grab our attention. These can include health problems, insomnia or feeling stuck in bad relationships. Addressing anxiety can free up your energy and enjoyment, and give you back your life.

I have several strategies that have proven to be very effective in helping my clients decrease their anxiety. I utilize cognitive therapy to help clients develop a toolbox with as many tools as possible to help them cope with their anxiety. This helps them get through they day, the hour or the minute so that they can successfully complete daily tasks and pursue personal and professional goals. I utilize psychodynamic psychotherapy to help clients become aware of the underlying issues that may be contributing to their anxiety. Once they have gained this insight, they are able to cope with their anxiety better and live their lives with more confidence and joy.

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; panic attacks; phobias; & obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)/ obsessive compulsive personality disorder are all manifestations of the Anxiety Disorders. Phobias are usually treated by exposure-desensitization techniques, while anxiety & panic disorders respond well to exploration of triggers, identification of maladaptive cognitions & illogical thinking, stress mgmnt, as well as awareness of what occurs or soothes as symptoms abate. Many patients will improve when medication is incorporated into treatment. Distraction, refocusing, & reinforcement techniques may also be introduced. I have occasionally found it helpful to treat OCD d/o's with analogs to self-help addictive treatment.

Our thoughts often cause our feelings. I can teach you a process to be able to identify your false beliefs, learn the truth and then know what the loving action(s) you need to take to feel higher self worth and calmer.

Anxiety Counselor

Jessica Allen, LCSW, ACT

Cognitive Behavioral Therapist

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

Anxiety Counselor

David Mark, MS, LCSW

School Psychologist, Licensed Social Worker, Certified Gottman Therapist

Within driving distance of Little Ferry

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.

Helping you find wholeness...

Within driving distance of Little Ferry

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.

We all face stress on daily basis- either positive stress, when we get ready for a Birthday party, receive an award or get married or negative stress from the conflict with the partner, loss of a job, or worrying about great sexual performance. Stress if unavoidable. What you can do through the process of therapy with me- is to develop your own tool box of Wellness techniques to help you manage stress and anxiety differently. I can teach you various relaxation and mindfulness methods that we can practice together in the office and then you can take them home and use when needed.
