I help people identify the triggers to their anxiety and develop a system to deal with stress before it deals with them! What would your life be like if you weren't continually activated in negative ways by stress? We will work together to make small steps toward change. Clients report less chronic pain when they are managing anxiety in healthy ways. It is possible to reduce anxiety and live life in a more vivid way, even if you situation is not optimal. I can teach you to acknowledge and release these negative thoughts, thus releasing the "trauma" that has built up in your body (stored stress and anxiety)

Don't you just hate those people you know who never get nervous and are always cool as a cucumber? There aren't very many of them. For most of us, stress causes anxiety. All anxiety has the potential to cause debilitating consequences. My work with people prone to anxiety is to isolate the stressors that caused their anxiety and by using cognitive as well as interpersonal interventions carve a path towards deflating the stressors and teaching how to deal with the anxiety. Panic attacks, OCD,agoraphobia and trauma are some other anxiety based challenges. I teach my patients how to deal with the" anxiety beast" for It is merely in our thoughts. We can control our thoughts. I show you how.

Stress is a normal part of our daily experience. Too much stress can bring devastating consequences including stomach issues, increased blood pressure, difficulty sleeping, increased fatigue, reduced immunity to illness, physical pain and can make us more vulnerable to mood issues like anger and depression. Finding proven ways to cope with stress can provide joy throughout our entire lives. When we stop worrying about our lives and start being present and actively participating in our daily world, we often find the relief and comfort that we have been seeking all along. Together we can find the strategies that work best for you.

While most treatment approaches for anxiety and stress are effective on the surface, they don’t treat the real problem. Mantras, deep breathing, and rational dialogues about your fear being irrational rarely work---for most people don’t believe it or you! Imagine if you can trick the brain into changing without you telling your conscious mind that you are changing it? Problem with anxiety and stress is that the brain in this state knows you want to change it and it resists.

Early intervention is key in minimizing the impact of anxiety throughout a lifetime.

My method of working with clients on anxiety , stress and coping varies per individual. How we cope is greatly influenced by how we see the world. Mindset, life experiences, and our current situation can impact that. Overall, integrating Strength- Based, Mindfulness, NLP even DBT approaches enhances our ability to accept, and view our life with a fresh perspective. As we begin to see things through a different lens, this new perspective becomes a powerful tool in developing our mind as a muscle; an essential part of moving toward the life changes you seek. This opens the door to management of unwanted symptoms, anxiety, stress, feelings of overwhelm or low motivation and a path forward.

Fear is about the past, anxiety is about what we imagine will happen in the future. Fear and Anxiety mean, by definition, that you are not living in the moment. In order to help you identify what is causing you anxiety, the approach is for you to vent what you are feeling and how it is hindering you. I will ask strategic questions that will make you think, behave differently, and take back your life! I will offer you as many approaches to handle your anxiety as you will need to relinquish the hold it has had over you. Stress occurs when we feel out of control. I will help you manage it and even reduce the instances of stress in your life.

Every person out there can relate to feeling anxiety or stress at some point in their life. However, it is a different story when that stress or anxiety impedes your ability to function on a day to day basis. For those who struggle in this manner, it is difficult to convey how horrific the experience is. After working in the field and helping people successfully overcome debilitating anxiety, I truly believe that psychotherapy and the right treatment approach can help anyone become the best version of themselves. It has always been a pleasure of mine seeing the transition take place and knowing that treatment has made such a difference for so many who never thought they could do it!

Good therapy helps uncover the root causes of anxiety, and finds ways to transcend the specific current issues and deals with the underlying sense of worry that seems to arise from nowhere. Anxiety arises due to one's own natural energies being turned back on oneself. I help you see that the anxiety and circular, repeated thinking are due to deeply-held messages. These restrictive messages cause you to feel that authentic self-expression is dangerous, not wanted, and unhealthy. Gradually discovering old traumas and hidden beliefs so they are fully understood and digested, frees you to live in more peace and more fulfilled.
