I believe that there is so much stress and anxiety that we face in our every day living. How we each manage and handle this and its impact varies from person to person. In our work together, we look at the circumstances of your life and how to support you, and help you design a lifestyle that allows you to win but do so healthily.

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.

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.

Anxiety is like a little monster that gets bigger and bigger if it isn't kept in check. I can help you or your child get past anxiety by slowly learning to face each fear. Of course, this is easier said than done! I teach a host of techniques to help with this, such as positive self-talk, role-playing, calming techniques and guided imagery. With children I also introduce play therapy- which usually feels like a lot of fun. Getting past anxiety is an empowering and confidence building experience for clients of all ages! Let me help you in this journey...

Anxiety Counselor

Susan Bady, LCSW, BCD

Registered Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Wood Ridge

I will help you with anxiety and stress in a variety of ways. Sometimes just talking can calm and de-stress you, especially if we explore unhelpful thoughts or poor time management that hinder you. Othertimes, I will teach you breathing exercises, meditation, EMDR and hypnosis that are natural healing agents. I will encourage you to engage in physical activity, spend time in nature, eat foods that are natural antianxiety benefits, or if appropriate, get a pet. If you wish, I will help you gain perspective by developing a spiritual approach.

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 Counselor

Wendi Dumbroff, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Wood Ridge

Everyone knows what it feels like to be anxious and stressed. I have worked with many clients around anxiety issues. I help people to see that "they are not anxiety" but rather, that "anxiety is a visitor." It comes and it goes. Sitting down and taking a close look at your anxiety is a way to begin to have control over it, rather than anxiety controlling you! Mindfulness offers many tools I share with my clients as I help them with troublesome anxiety and panic issues. I also bring in information from modern neuroscience, as well as offering them some cognitive and behavioral techniques. There are things that can help you to manage your anxiety, so you don't have to struggle with it.

Helping you find wholeness...

Within driving distance of Wood Ridge

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 can cause a great deal of suffering. Fortunately, it is one of the most treatable problems. Anxiety problems, from panic attacks to compulsions, are highly responsive to the right forms of treatment. While anxiety itself can be scary, the good news is our treatments are very effective at reducing the emotional pain, changing the related behaviors, and can help to restore healthy relationships that may have been impacted by the anxiety issues.
