Everyone feels anxiety at some point in their lives but when it starts to interfere with your life, counseling can help. Although anxiety can feel debilitating, it is treatable. People with anxiety don’t always share the same symptoms, they vary from person to person. Therapy will help you to reclaim your life and function in a chronically stressful world.

Many people have anxiety. Anxiety is the most common problem that clients bring into psychotherapy. Anxiety can create feelings of fear, worry, uneasiness, and dread. Sometimes you can say what it is bothering you. Your job or relationship may be causing you stress and you want to solve the problems. You don’t know how to deal with the mounting pressures. Friends will often say “don’t worry about it” but that doesn’t help. Sometimes you don’t really know what is bothering you it just is. I can show you how spot these feelings before they overwhelm you and what you can do about it. We’ll get clear on what has been difficult for you and how have you been feeling.

Your anxiety and/or stress are interfering in your life, or simply, have become debilitating. You are experiencing feelings of danger or panic, nervousness, or physical sensations of weakness, tiredness or trembling. Anxiety and depression are often related, often sharing sense of hopelessness, helplessness or loss of interest in things that used to elicit joy or relaxation. Through therapy we will explore the underlying causes of your anxiety and provide for you the ability to autonomously address these feelings as well as the often associated fear of failure.

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.

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.

Licensed Psychotherapist, Certified Couple and Sex Therapist

In 07030 - Nearby to Paterson.

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.

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.

Gail Rosen, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 07446 - Nearby to Paterson.

Anxiety and Stress hurt. Because loved ones likely don't know what to do for you and can't really understand what you are going through, it's hard for you to feel supported and understood by them. My office is your safe space where anything can be discussed without fear of judgment or ridicule. Especially in stressful times people sometimes lose sight of their own resiliency and their ability to cope. I work from a combination of accepted psychotherapeutic approaches and I will use my expertise, skills, perspectives, experiences and training to work with you in a collaborative approach to help you find and use your own strengths to move forward and succeed in your goal.

Anxiety Counselor

Lauren Levy, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 10128 - Nearby to Paterson.

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.

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.

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.

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, anxiety disorders are the most commonly diagnosed disorders in the USA. Each year 19 million Americans are affected by generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, PTSD or specific phobias (e.g. claustrophobia). I help you identify core conflicts underlying anxiety such as anger, ambivalence about autonomy and fears of abandonment and safely replace maladaptive coping mechanisms with healthier ones. I help re-educate your negative self-talk with positive, productive inner talk and teach you breathing and relaxation techniques and mindfulness meditation to control physical symptoms.

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.
