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.

At some point, we all experience anxiety and stress. For New Yorkers in particular, anxiety and stress are a part of our everyday lives. They can cause panic attacks, phobias, OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder), frustration, IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), heart disease, diabetes, isolation, high blood pressure, loss of sleep, irrational fears, muscle tension and depression. Often times it stems from genetics, relationships, illness, financial worries, or a major life event, such as marriage, divorce, loss or change of job. With decades of experience, I can help you develop ways in which you can effectively reduce your stress in order to regain a sense of both physical and mental well-being

Anxiety and stress is often symptomatic of internal conflict that creates the perception of threat. If we liken ourselves to a collection of different personality traits who all serve important functions, then the goal in reducing stress and anxiety is to make a conscious space to integrate, coordinate, and tailor, these sides of ourselves for optimal functioning. When we can learn to be the benevolent, kind, curious, and autonomous facilitator of such a network then we cease to be at the mercy of internalized critics who we continued to depend on in unhealthy ways beyond their capacities to offer effective guidance.

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.

My experience is that everyone can overcome anxiety. Whether the anxiety is experienced as physical discomfort in the belly, chest or throat; or annoying, intrusive thoughts in the form of "what if's;" or general restlessness, counseling can be wonderfully helpful and curative. My own method includes: 1. teaching relaxation and breathing techniques, 2. mindfulness practice or hypnosis to enhance your ability to focus, as well as to support your sense of control over your own thoughts, and 3. psychotherapy to help you move forward in your life by understanding and overcoming the deeper causes of your worries and discomfort.

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.

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.
