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...

Psychotherapist

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.

Everyone feels anxiety at some point in their lives but when it starts to interfere with your life, counseling can help. Although anxiety can feel debilitating, it is treatable. People with anxiety don’t always share the same symptoms, they vary from person to person. Therapy will help you to reclaim your life and function in a chronically stressful world.

I help my clients learn how to self-soothe the part of them that is anxious. You can all do this by becoming aware of what you are telling yourself about a situation or others.

I can teach you a process to be able to identify your false beliefs, learn the truth and then know what the loving action(s) you need to take to feel higher self worth and calmer.

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.

We all face stress on daily basis- either positive stress, when we get ready for a Birthday party, receive an award or get married or negative stress from the conflict with the partner, loss of a job, or worrying about great sexual performance. Stress if unavoidable. What you can do through the process of therapy with me- is to develop your own tool box of Wellness techniques to help you manage stress and anxiety differently. I can teach you various relaxation and mindfulness methods that we can practice together in the office and then you can take them home and use when needed.

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.

Licensed Psychologist

In 10001 - Nearby to Staten Island.

I have experience with reducing and eliminating panic attacks, curing phobias, and reducing more generalized anxiety. Anxiety can feel unbearable, and give you the sense that you are in danger. Here also looking at relationships can be very helpful to determine where your anxiety comes from (modeling anxious parents, getting a sense that the world is a dangerous place). and what thoughts and feelings your anxiety may be distracting you from. Getting to know you well can be instrumental in giving you relief from anxiety and reassure you that you are not alone.

Anxiety can take many forms, including excessive stress, low self-esteem, panic attacks, phobias and compulsions. When fear or anxiety is experienced on a daily basis it can become so familiar that it goes un-noticed until problems arise that grab our attention. These can include health problems, insomnia or feeling stuck in bad relationships. Addressing anxiety can free up your energy and enjoyment, and give you back your life.

In 07724 - Nearby to Staten Island.

Through the use of cognitive behavioral therapy, clients learn the relationship between their thoughts, feelings and behaviors, as well as practice cognitive restructuring, relaxation techniques, and exposure response prevention to overcome fears and phobias. In combination with possible medication management, clients will be more comfortable and calmer when approaching the therapy.Cognitive behavioral therapy helps you understand that your thought patterns, not things outside of your control, influence how you behavior in certain situations. In other words, it is not the actual situation that triggers your anxiety; it is how you view the situation that influences your behavior.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Licensed Clinical Alcohol & Drug Counselor

In 07058 - Nearby to Staten Island.

It's hard not to feel stress in today's world. Constant exposure to stress, without tools and practice to manage it begin to affect our physical health as well as emotional and mental well-being. Learning self-hypnosis, mindfulness and breathing techniques and reduce stress and improve how we react to stressful situations. Journaling, doodling, and visioning also reduce the impact of stress. Even if you don't consider yourself an artist, painting and drawing create peace thoughts. Learning a new hobby, such as knitting, whatever your age or gender, is documented to reduce stress. You can learn these techniques, strategies and skills in the comfort and privacy of my office.

There are six major types of anxiety disorders: post-traumatic stress disorder, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder and phobias. Each type of anxiety has overlapping qualities, but there are distinct symptoms between them as well. Many of my clients come to me suffering from anxiety and, depending upon which type of anxiety my client is experiencing, I customize my treatment to help them find relief. For a therapist, having intimate knowledge about the different types of anxiety is critical in order to provide the best treatment possible.

In 10012 - Nearby to Staten Island.

Anxiety and stress take a hold on you and never let go, leaving you trapped and frozen. I help my clients to learn all about the magic of mindfulness practice. It's one of the most effective ways to put you in control of your emotions, rather than them controlling you. Imagine how great it would be to have an internal place of peace and serenity that you can use at any time to relax and become grounded. Mindfulness is an ancient practice that is also supported by scientific empirical studies. It's one of the best ways to change your life.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

In 10001 - Nearby to Staten Island.

You will learn where your anxiety and stress come from and find creative ways to explore it and heal it. Anxiety can be very complicated. I will help reflect characteristics, behaviors, thoughts, and emotions that you are unable to see in yourself. The more you learn about yourself, the more predictable life becomes and the lower stress we experience on a daily basis. Daily stress equals chronic stress. Chronic stress is very unhealthy for us. You will learn coping skills for your in-the-moment anxiety and long-term skills to lower chronic stress. I am a Certified HeartMath Practitioner and can work with you through HRV biofeedback to reduce stress.
