Everyone experiences some anxiety and stress, but it becomes a problem when the anxiety affects you on a daily basis or you worry so much that you feel you can no longer fully enjoy your life. Defining what triggers your anxiety is the first step. Figuring out what causes a rational concern to balloon out of control and overwhelm you is the next. I work with individuals whose moderate stress levels have become more disturbing and uncomfortable, people with generalized anxiety, and those suffering from severe panic attacks.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

We all have multiple roles and responsibilities in our lives—as parents, bosses, children, spouses, colleagues and friends. They help define who we are and can be immensely fulfilling and rewarding. They are often, however, the source of anxiety, fear, doubt and other obstacles to our happiness. These obstacles are usually deeply rooted in the expectations of the people, cultures and institutions that have surrounded us all our lives. Using mindfulness techniques, breathing exercises, and relaxation training I help clients realize the sources and triggers of their stress anxiety. I help them create a state of internal strength and calm that allows them to use their natural creativity to find

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....

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

Annee Ackerman, Ph.D.

Psychologist

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.

Licensed Psychoanalyst

Anxiety is a signal your mind is sending to alert you of a real or perceived threat. For example, you are stressed about work: perhaps anxiety is a sign that your fear you are not good enough. There are situations in life when you need a signal so that you make the right decision at the right moment; but when anxiety is too intense, you feel paralyzed and cannot make decisions because all options seem to lead to the worst case scenario. I will help you learn from your anxiety so that you can look beyond the discomfort and understand what is the concern or fear underneath it; then we will work directly with that fear or concern.

Holistic Psychologist, Author, Focalizer

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.

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.

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.

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.
