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.

Anxiety and stress are interrelated. Generally people with anxiety disorders, including obsessive-compulsive disorder, tend to internalize conflicts that cause them to always be stressed out, which affects their thinking and behavior. Through an eclectic psychotherapy approach that includes psychodynamic, cognitive and behavioral work, I help them release the fears and angers that underlie the build-up of stress. In time they learn to moderate their feelings, cope better with stressful situations and live a calmer life.

In these sessions you'll learn how to turn a threat into an opportunity. How you can recognize and than pause when you're in fight or flight mode. This is an old, antiquated program, or story. You'll learn how to challenge this old story, to explore different ones and than to choose and act on your newer , better version. Lastly, you'll begin to understand what it means to "try easier" and how changing your pace and slowing down allows you to move from anxiety and doubt, to confidence and taking control.

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.

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.

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

While we all live with some degree of anxiety and stress in our lives, there are times when the anxiety and stress levels overwhelm us and our usual ways of coping no longer work. When overwhelmed by stress an anxiety, it is not uncommon to shut down, engage in poor decision making or partake in destructive escape routes. I help clients gain perspective, problem-solve, and find ways to increase support during times of extreme stress, anxiety, loss and disappointment. Clients with whom I work with on issues of anxiety and stress report feeling more hopeful, more capable, reassured and better able to tackle life's challenges and disappointments.

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.

Perhaps you're worried about a job, a loved one, the kids at school, feel awkward or uncomfortable in new or large places; or your marriage, a relationship, or are involved in a toxic relationship. All of these can create severe anxiety and stress. Panic attacks that occur suddenly for no reason, can all be changed, the first step is yours, call and we'll talk about how best to get you back to the life you want.

Did you just yell at your partner because you felt overwhelmed and irritable. Are you always feeling like you never reach your goals and are constantly rushing yourself and your family. In our society of never ending pressure and high expectations people are often feeling chronically stressed and anxious. Neurobiology has taught us a great deal of the impact of anxiety on brain and emotional functioning. Couples and individual therapy are an excellent resource for learning how to identify your triggers for anxiety. In my work with couples and individuals we work on learning and implementing understanding and tools to manage and decrease stress and anxiety wherever possible.

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.
