Athletes and non-athletes experience stress. It is a simple result of being human in an all-too complicated world. Although the circumstances are usually very different for the anxious parent, self-conscious adolescent, young professional lacking confidence, worried student, or the athlete concerned about under-performing, they all share the common experience of anxiety and stress. I use the pragmatic strategies of sport and optimal performance psychology to help individuals of all ages to better manage their stress and to transform their fears into a source of personal strength.

Everyone experiences anxiety at some point, but for some the anxiety is so frequent or intense that it interferes with their lives or even triggers panic attacks. I use Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to help my clients get a sense of control over their own anxiety. We collaborate to learn skills to reduce the frequency or intensity of the anxious feelings, to tolerate the anxiety when it does occur so they can still function through it, and to practice habits that reduce stress and improve general mental health.

I help my clients learn how to self-soothe the part of them that is anxious. You can all do this by becoming aware of what you are telling yourself about a situation or others. 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.

Our clinicians often Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques to treat individuals struggling with anxiety. CBT refers to a class of interventions with the basic premise that maladaptive cognitions (general beliefs, or schemas, about the world, the self, and the future, giving rise to specific and automatic thoughts in particular situations) contribute to the maintenance of emotional distress and behavioral problems. The basic model posits that therapeutic strategies to change these maladaptive cognitions lead to changes in emotional distress and problematic behaviors. Our clinicians help you learn how to challenge and control these thoughts so you can regain control of your life.

Through the use of cognitive behavioral therapy, clients learn the relationship between their thoughts, feelings and behaviors, as well as practice cognitive restructuring, relaxation techniques, and exposure response prevention to overcome fears and phobias. In combination with possible medication management, clients will be more comfortable and calmer when approaching the therapy.Cognitive behavioral therapy helps you understand that your thought patterns, not things outside of your control, influence how you behavior in certain situations. In other words, it is not the actual situation that triggers your anxiety; it is how you view the situation that influences your behavior.
