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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Here, as with depression, the problems come in many many forms and involved many different additional feelings as part of them - anger, depression, rage, discouragement, frustration, resentment, and so on. Your particular constellation of these feelings, your unique collection of symptoms, and of course your personality - your way of experiencing and handling life - all play into how your therapy will go. Some relief is usually quick with simpler anxiety and stress symptoms. More ingrained anxiety, forming your longer standing mode of interacting with the world, will take longer to abate.
