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.

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)

Anxiety; panic attacks; phobias; & obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)/ obsessive compulsive personality disorder are all manifestations of the Anxiety Disorders. Phobias are usually treated by exposure-desensitization techniques, while anxiety & panic disorders respond well to exploration of triggers, identification of maladaptive cognitions & illogical thinking, stress mgmnt, as well as awareness of what occurs or soothes as symptoms abate. Many patients will improve when medication is incorporated into treatment. Distraction, refocusing, & reinforcement techniques may also be introduced. I have occasionally found it helpful to treat OCD d/o's with analogs to self-help addictive treatment.

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.

If you suffer from anxiety or stress then you know how it impacts upon your life. This is such a large topic. It could include ocd, panic attacks, low self esteem, ...poor relationships to numerous other issues. My approach depends upon who you are and what your issues are. I like to think of myself as being non-judgmental, creating an atmosphere where you are comfortable telling me your story. When that happens we can then identify the issue and choose strategic approaches that will fit with your views and personality so in the end you can have a life without the anxiety and stress that you are feeling presently.

Anxiety and fear are reactions to perceived threat - universal emotions experienced by us all. When anxiety is out of control, it causes us pain and distress, often preventing us from doing the things we want to do. Fortunately, anxiety is among the most treatable psychological problems. I help my clients change their relationship to anxiety through processes such as learning mindfulness skills to handle painful thoughts and feelings, developing awareness of destructive thought processes, increasing emotional flexibility and clarifying core values. While suffering is an inevitable part of life, it is also an opportunity to learn, grow and expand - a springboard to a rich and meaningful life.

New York State Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Within driving distance of Mount Pleasant

Counseling clients with anxiety and managing stress is my reason for choosing this field to work in. For a period of my life, I was overcome with anxiety and panic attacks. This is no longer the case and my belief and my understanding that this can happen for clients I have seen as a result of getting help. The feelings are painful and in my case, became unbearable. The fear creates the fear. The "what if"? that starts every sentence. Whether it is to assess your options, learn techniques for mindfulness or learning how to deal with triggers, it is my goal as a therapist to assist you with gaining your life back. No one is anxiety free but it should not ruin your life.
