A simple statement about the states of anxiety, depression and satisfaction might be: Depression is living in the past, Anxiety is living in the future, and satisfaction is living in the here and now. We have habitual patterns of thinking, and whole sets of beliefs underlying those patterns. Escaping from the grip of these is very enlivening. Just by taking the step of reaching out, the process begins.

Managing anxiety and stress often means learning some new skills, and that's where I come in. I've helped countless people with techniques that help them regain control. Sometimes medication is necessary, but more often anxiety and stress can be greatly reduced simply by using the right techniques. Actually, I've helped people turn their stress or anxiety into learning experiences that leave them feeling more empowered and competent in controlling their lives. If you like, I can help you do the same.

Psychotherapist/Couples Counselor

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Most individuals will encounter stress and anxiety throughout different times in life. How you manage stress is of key importance. When stress and anxiety overwhelm us we lose our footing. The Cognitive Behavioral approach to how we manage these stressors has become one of the most effective ways to regain control over our thoughts and behavior. Learning mindfulness techniques and recognizing ineffective thought patterns are tools you will learn to regain that footing. Let's work together so stress and anxiety does not continually become so overwhelming. Life's stressors are manageable wen you employ the right tools.

Helping you find wholeness...

Within driving distance of River Vale

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.

Anxiety is simply a difficult thing to experience. It ranges from a constant feeling of distress to an acutely overpowering feeling that seems to consume. It is also quite common. Years of working with this issue have made to clear to me that part of mastering anxiety is gaining a working knowledge of why ones gets anxious. Insight is not enough however. When awareness is achieved then one can move to replace old patterns with new ones. It is these new and increasingly adaptable patterns that leads to a successful mastery of anxiety.
