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.

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.

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.

It's hard not to feel stress in today's world. Constant exposure to stress, without tools and practice to manage it begin to affect our physical health as well as emotional and mental well-being. Learning self-hypnosis, mindfulness and breathing techniques and reduce stress and improve how we react to stressful situations. Journaling, doodling, and visioning also reduce the impact of stress. Even if you don't consider yourself an artist, painting and drawing create peace thoughts. Learning a new hobby, such as knitting, whatever your age or gender, is documented to reduce stress. You can learn these techniques, strategies and skills in the comfort and privacy of my office.

Together we can explore the triggers that lead to your anxious and stressed feelings and develop new coping mechanisms for relief.

I often think that anxiety is a difficulty that shows great promise--because it's really misdirected energy moving in unhelpful directions: panic, stress, etc. and energy itself is a gift. The key is how, together, we find ways to make it more productive by identifying whatever fuels it and lends it power. I've treated so many people for anxiety and they have made great progress, either reducing or eliminating the symptoms.

Helping you find wholeness...

In 10016 - Nearby to Newark.

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 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

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.

In today’s world anxiety and stress cannot be avoided, they are innate signals that danger is ahead and we should mobilize ourselves against it. So anxiety can be very helpful at moderate levels (e.g. getting us to study for an exam). But high levels of anxiety can be paralyzing especially when there is no identifiable danger. In working with clients around these issues I take a multifaceted approach, exploring his or her current circumstances (e.g. family, work, etc.), and experiences in the past that may have contributed to the current problem. I also focus on helping to alleviate symptoms with practical suggestions like exercise and meditation as well as the use of hypnosis and guided imagery.
