Do you feel tense and uptight and want to be more relaxed? Stress is the result of overloading our capacity to cope. Anxiety and worry make us suffer for bad outcomes that have not even happened. Counseling will help you identify triggers and to relieve them in healthy ways. We will talk about anxiety attacks and flashbacks and hypervigilance. We'll look at your past for the roots of anxiety and stress. You may be taking meds (check with doctor first) or using alcohol or drugs or pot and want to deal with your feelings yourself. Do you want to strengthen your trust and faith that the world is mainly a safe place? Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) or EMDR are interventions we can discuss.

There are so many ways to address anxiety and stress that everyone can use!

I believe that everyone has natural, inner strength and peace that cannot ever be destroyed - we just have to know how to unlock it and let it shine again! My years working with traumatized individuals have shown me that we all can benefit from the best evidence-based options in a personal anxiety and stress reduction plan.

If depression is the common cold of mental health then anxiety and stress must be the flue. Most of my clients have some level of anxiety or stress. Often debilitating anxiety has its roots in trauma or abuse. I teach a wide range of meditation and relaxation techniques developed over my 30+ years of counselling experience that I use myself on a daily basis - with variations that my clients over the years have come up with on their own. Even if you have tried to relax or meditate before this and found it difficult or impossible, there are techniques that can help you learn to be still and have peace even in the face of danger, anxiety, or fear.

I often am asked to assist people with anxiety and stress. I usually respond witha solution focused approach and also informed by mindfulness. We exploring with the person the nature of their anxiety, the situations where it is experienced and also when it seems to be lessened. Anxiety can come from a number of sources, sometimes related to trauma, sometimes to an event and thoughts about that event. We explore when anxiety can be useful and when it is debilitating. Together we develop some strategies to identify triggers and/or ways to restore balance and a sense of calm.
